Desantis Gunhide Pocket Shot

Desantis Gunhide Pocket Shot

DeSantis Gunhide®, a division of HELGEN Industries Inc., introduces the Pocket Shot™ holster.

“DeSantis didn’t invent concealment, we just perfected it”.

The Pocket Shot™ is our latest way to conceal and rapidly access your small auto. The #110 disguises itself as a wallet but can be brought into action instantly without removing the gun. It’s made of black leather, is ambidextrous, and will carry several different 380 and 32 autos.

I’ve purchased Desantis products in the past, but there is no way I would ever consider buying the Pocket Shot. The whole point of a holster is to hold a gun in a safe position and cover the trigger to prevent negligent discharge. While this holster would keep the gun in a static position, it does nothing to prevent access to the trigger.

  1. Actually it works well for it’s intended purpose. I use one with my Keltec 380. In a back jeans pocket, the pocket covers the trigger. And it looks like a wallet. AND it is not an AOW as defined by ATF. The holster I have had for years was made by another company. I wonder how Galco “acquired” this design? Having had to pull it one time, I can attest to the fact it works.

  2. Hmm…This looks like it was made in China or Mexico. The leather stiching is weak, and the leather looks like it is of poor quaility. I would be afraid to put that in my purse or pocket, the finger balance hole is off cut and it looks like it would be loose fit for my weapon.

    I picked up a Pocket Grip at a Gun Show made by Conceal City, ( I believe) and it fits securely around the grip where this model does not appear too.

  3. I use it with a Ruger LCP and it works great. Great feel in the hand and unlike other simular holsters, it does not require a round to be chambered.
    Anyone carring a conceal weapon hopefully has the weapon handling skills to keep us all safe. Meaning, not using a weapon and/or holster for anything other than its intended use. This holster is not intended to be placed in a purse or other “bag”. It is intended to be carried in a pocket. Specifically in the same pocket as a wallet. So the extra pens, lighters or what ever should not be a problem.

  4. Use it before you ‘diss this holster. Have carried this for a year. Works well, no concern for postition of weapon. In place ready if needed.

  5. My concern with this type of ‘holster’ is that it does nothing to protect the trigger.

    Sure, it may provide a stable positioning of the firearm, but nothing prevents the trigger from being pulled. In my mind, trigger protection is the primary job of a holster.
