I have a CPL in Michigan, and my first gun was the Taurus PT140. Wanting to carry, but realizing that the gun is thick enough as it is, a holster was out of the question. I took an old cell phone holder apart, took out the spring steel clip, stripped my Taurus, a couple of holes, screws, and viola'!! Homeade belt clip on my .40. I've had it like this for almost a year with no problems at all. I filed the screws off on the inside of the polymer frame so they were flush and didn't hit anything. I also used a dremel tool and ground finger grooves where the checkerd front grip used to be and on the clip, and it is SOOO much more comfortable now

oh my, if it works great, but i would personally never drill holes in my frame.

Believe me, the two holes I drilled were so small, they are not going to compromise the integrity of that frame.

Great mod! I love ingenuity and this is very ingenious. MacGyver, step aside! By the way, I love your signature line. I'm going to appropriate it for my email signature line. I had a couple of years of Latin eons ago so I picked right up on it.

Thanks, if only I could fit it on the plate of my bike, but there's to many letters.

But do they compromise the warranty?

Thanks! That provides a quick answer for those that don't want to drill holes in frames (even small ones). It's pretty cheap too. Unfortunately, I'm so rotund that I have a hard enough time just getting me inside my waistband let alone a gun too. ;)

I'd imagine it does, but it's such a reliable gun I'm not worried about warranty. Plus, I've broken two Taurus guns and had them honor a warranty that they did not have to, a VERY reputable company IMHO.
