Walther P5 holster

Just acquired a Walther P5, which I intend to be a carry weapon. If anyone here regularly carries (or has carried) a P5, I'd appreciate hearing what holster(s) worked best for you. Thanks in advance!

I managed to find a West German leather police issue concealment type holster with a single magazine pouch on eBay. It was a thumbsnap design and completely covered the barrel. It was black leather and was stamped on the back with the model of the pistol. It was just about perfect. It went with the pistol when I traded it in on a P99. I've seen a couple of others.

If those don't shake out for you.

Ted Blocker - Ted blocker holsters - made an outside the belt concealment holster for my P5 quite a few years ago.

He did not have a model to work with - the P5 was new on the market then - so I gave him my pistol to work with. Maybe he still has the pattern.

Top quality leather with an adjustable keeper for different belt widths and the gun has never bounced out.

Just bought one of the West German police concealment holsters on eBay; we'll see how it works.
