Does any forum member use the new model PT58 as a concealed carry weapon?? just curious of the weight with a full 19 rd magazine...also, is a holster fit for a Beretta 84 series interchangeable with the PT58? any info will be appreciated..blb
It is a 19 rounder as was earlier stated. The only thing making this difficult is the extended butt. This is longer than the earlier PT58s. So the shoulder holster is a good idea.
Some of the wall ideas for carry though. There are belly bands from Bianchi and several other reputable holster makers that might work. One wears the gun at navel level and crossdraw style. One wears button down shirts or western shirts with snaps. The middle button is left undone. Or velcro strips can be sewn in is and at the point near the undone button. This way onecan knife the hand through the opening and draw the gun out.
Snaps on western shirts can be popped and the shirt opened quickly without tearing things up or apart.
Kramer Leather makes the Confidant mesh under shirt holster. This has a pocket on both sides for carrying the gun and the other for spare ammo.Works like a shoulder holster, but still has to accessed through the outside shirt. A little over $43.00 last time I looked.
Thunderwear is a crotch holster that holds the gun and spare mag tightly and well. One has to have jeans or pants a size or two larger to make this work.
There are now tactical shirts,pants, and jeans, such as .5.11 and other reputable makers who have the holster inside the clothing with easy access to the gun.
Practice is important with any of these carries until they become second nature.
Nothing wrong with a shoulder holster. Just giving other ideas out.
