Hello,

Does anyone here carry the P99 for CCW? If so, I would be very interested in the holster/method used to conceal this fine pistol. I have been searching for a good way to carry my P99 .40, but it seems that holster options are somewhat limited. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I carry mine all the time. I have a couple of Milt Sparks holsters. My favorite is the #1H. Easy to put on and off, made of horse hide with smooth side in and out, with a plastic shield on the side closest to your body to protect the gun from your sweat.

I also have a Dual Talon. This is a lot slimmer holster and has a very quick draw to it. It is also very comfortable to wear.

The other holsters are outside the pants and I only use these for range use.

Where exactly do you put the gun? Hip, "kidney" etc.? What do you do during the summer (like jeans/t-shirt outfit)? Can you actually conceal the gun under your t-shirt?

I wear it on my right hip. In the summer I wear jean or shorts and tuck a tee-shirt in over it. The tee shirt ends up looking a little bit baggey, but I'm not really concerned about my "style" look. I'm probably considered to be a skinny person (185lb. 6' tall), because some friends of mine who are shorter and stockyer, have told me they have a hard time concealing a full size gun the way I do.

When wearing my P99 concealed with only a tee shirt, I've found the only problem I've had is when I bend over to pick something up. The butt of the gun tends to push out and stretch the tee shirt, showing exactly what it is. Thus if I need to pick something up I have trained myself to bend my knees and crouch rather than bend over. (Its better on your back this way also)

The Milt Sparks looks nice, a little pricey though. Who makes the dual Talon holster? Is it a bit more affordable? I'm also in the market for a ccw holster for my P99 and haven't been able to find much that'll conceal well.

For leather, try delfatti.com  Matt Delfatti makes a very good product.  There will be a wait time because Matt makes them when he receives the order.  If you want Kydex, try www.comp-tac.com.  Greg Garrett also makes an excellent product.  His customer service is outstanding, too.  Very quick turnaround!

The Dual Talon is a Milt Sparks holster also. It is basically a Watch Six with Alessi kydex clips to hold it in place, instead of the leather snap loops.

Milt Sparks holsters not only look nice, IMO they are the best made leather holsters out there. They may be a little more expensive, but as the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for".

I have one more answer.
Sidearmor is just completing design on a IWB holster for the P99 in either caliber. This is not to say all the above mentioned holsters are very, very fine. But the Sidearmor people are designing the holster for a special order of Walter P99 fans and it should be out and available very soon. I do not know the exact date of course but you could ask them on line at their site.
The Sidearmor holster is attached by your choice of three methods, loop, hooks. and spaced hooks like the watch six. You can interchange the attachment methods. There is a shirt tucker option you can put on if desired.
The material is Krydex, which is sweatproof, strong, light weight, and thin. It is well designed to retain the pistol by friction pressure. The only disadvantage is that there will be some "holster wear" to the finish in time. I have not noticed it on my Glock or 1911s.
I am waiting for one for my beloved SIG P239 and I have one on order for my P99s.

Thanks for the information gentlemen. I am planning on applying for a CCW permit in Colorado once the new bill takes effect this month. Since the P99 is my handgun of choice, I plan on carrying it regularly. The recommendations you have given will go a long way in finding a comfortable concealed holster for all-day carry.

I currently use the Blade-Tech holster for my CCW use.  Soon to be replaced with my Sidearmor!!!  I have used both the Sidearmor for my Glock 33 and the Blade-Tech for a few USP's.  Both work well, depends on your carry method and if you want leather or kydex.  

Also, start buying the clothes now for you to use when CCW and start wearing them.  Start carrying your cell phone in different places.  Don't wait to get your CCW when you start wearing the clothes, or people will notice that you changed your habbits.  Also, if going IWB get your pants an inch or 2 larger to make it easier.  Find a belt you like and start using it.  I prefer the Wilderness 5 stitch and wear it everyday.  People are used to it and dont question it.  

I would recommend you visit either http://www.glocktalk.com and or http://www.sigforum.com and read through the CCW section.

Good luck, don't tell!

Don't flatter yourself....... the pic I posted was directed to the original topic, not your request for a VM2 pic.

Rafter S makes some sweet leather at great prices.
Mine is an undyed cowhide IWB, with brown sharkskin trim, I also bought a brown sharkskin belt to match.
I liked everything so much, that I picked up a brown sharkskin OWB with black shark trim, a brown shark mag carrier, and another brown sharkskin belt.
