#DIGTHERIG – Caleb and his Kel Tec P3AT



1. What You Carry:
Kel Tec P3AT

2. What You Carry It In:
Handmade leather pocket holster.

3. Why: 
I have to carry small because I absolutely cannot risk any printing, so it has to be pocket-sized.  The pocket holster was purpose made to fit the clothes that I have to wear so that it that exactly matches my wallet print and allows me to carry it with zero suspicion in either front or back pocket.  When going small (.380), ammo choice matters more than ever, so I include ammo-type in my ‘rig’ definition.  I use Hornady 90 gr FTX Critical Defense because in the Lucky Gunner tests   (http://www.luckygunner.com/labs/self-defense-ammo-ballistic-tests/), of the .380 rounds that had consistent expansion, this round had the greatest penetration.  (For those who want to hate on .380, please feel free, but remember that it beats throwing rocks and, in fact, with this ammo, it beats a lot of common 9mm self-defense rounds in the Lucky Gunner tests.)
