Holster for KelTec P32

I will be acquiring a KelTec P32 in a trade today. I have wanted one for quite some time as a minimalistic carry gun.

I did some googling and had some trouble finding many holsters available for it.

I would prefer a Kydex IWB holster if possible, but I am open to leather potentially as well if another option isn't available.

I have always used a DeSantis pocket holster for mine. Have yet to find a pocket it won't fit.

DARA holsters. Google them. They make minimalist Kydex. I had one for my Walther PPS M1 and was a huge fan. They now have the curved belt clip, and can cant it for desired draw angle.

We The People holsters. Check them out, too.

The gun came with a pocket clip installed, and I do have a pocket holster... I'm just not really big on pocket carry. The primary purpose for getting this gun is so I can have something that is not in the way while I jog... which usually means not having pockets either.

I am mostly trying to stay consistent in carry style with my other carry gun, a Glock 19 with I carry IWB.

I will definitely check out Dara. I have heard from various people that We The People holsters are trash but I will check them out too. Thanks for the recommendations.

Different people have different opinions on what is a good holster. Think about it in the vein of what works for you, bud. The DARA was great for summer time. Pistol and holster didn't print or add mass to belt or waist line.

In cooler weather, the WTP was a little bigger, not even by a noticeable margin. But under a jacket or loose shirt, no problem. Ever.

DARA was retention adjustable, so you could get a bit more clamp on it for active wear. I dabbed some blue loc-tite on mine after adjusting so the screws didn't move.

I noticed you want one for jogging. And I don't know if this will fit you, but I will suggest it anyways, as more options are always better than fewer. Alien Gear. My goodness they have, by far, the BEST customer service I have ever interacted with when it comes to anything gun accessory. They have all sorts of options. I am convincing my wife that I need one of their newer shoulder rigs for when we are in the car or walking. The hip holster not doing it for me.

Cloak Tuck is what I have now, and for a day where its chilly out, have pants and a good belt on, this is the deal maker. Spreads the weight of the pistol out over a distance, its comfy, and its a kydex shell screwed to a neoprene backer.

Thanks for the info on AlienGear. I have owned a few of their holsters and they are comfortable. To my knowledge though, they are a little bulky for this purpose. Great for pants + belt carry though.

It's not a pocket clip-it's a belt clip.
It works wonderfully for carrying the P32 IWB without a holster.

Pocket carry in a DeSantis Superfly is probably one of the better options. The holster comes with a cover that makes it completely print-less in a back pocket. Take the cover off and stuff it into the front pants pocket. Super sticky so that it doesn't come out with the draw.

IWB for such a thin pistol is kind of a waste & also a slower draw, IMO.

Yeah, I got a couple of P32s

I know this is an old post, but I just ran into it.
I carry my P32 in a Sticky brand holster, I think it's size 2 or something like that, works great, has been pocket carry for years !!

I had a "we the people" paddle holster. Terrible. Paddle was flimsy. I bottomed out the retention, amd the gun would still fall out with a light shake. Contacted them. No help at all. Told me to tighten the retention, which i told them i already did. Asked for a picture of the gun falling out of the holster. Not something you can take a pic of. Made a youtube short, sent them the link. Told me they could not open the attachment. I told them it was a link to youtube. They again said they could not access the link for security reasons, a youtube link, and asked for a picture again. Stay away

Make you own but with a tumbsnap retention. Sewing leather isn't that hard. Take a NRA Holster making class if you have to.

I felt the P32’s to small for anything but pocket carry, so I took the clip off & have it in a holster from Pocket Concealment System. Not going to work great in jeans but will be perfect for warm weather in cargo shorts.

I didn't even know that was something they offered. Always something I have wanted to learn. Thanks for the info!
