Cell Pal Holster

Has anyone had personal experience with the Cell Pal holster for all day carry? Is it comfortable all day? This is the first time I have run accross this holster. Sounds interesting.
 

I bought mine about seven months ago for my PT709, I don't use it anymore due to the summer heat (it does get hot wearing it, and that isn't good for your handgun!). Don't get me wrong though, I like mine and will use it this winter, but it gets too danged hot here in North Carolina during the summer to wear the holster. :pleasantry:
 
Thanks. I noticed you have the PT709. I was recently able to take a look at this gun and really liked it. Can you tell me if you've had any problems with it? I'm leary of the name Taurus. Also would like to know if the holster is comfortable when you are sitting.

My wife and I have two 709s, really like them never any operating problems, they do like to be kept clean, trigger pull is a little long compared to some others, but a very good weapon for the money, and on the holster I use a Serpa paddle for ether my G-36 or G-21, the 709s we carry in a uncle mikes in small of back
 
I like the concept of the cel pal holster... a bit pricey if you have to buy the properly hooked type of cel phone holster from them in addition to the gun holster...

I'm trying to decide betwen the cel pal and the Smart Carry... Smart carry... (not a clone, never a clone except maybe thunderware)

Cel pal offers no guarantee... smart carry does... Both are essentially the same style of draw... in that they require 2 hands for normal draw... At least the cel pal can be weak hand drawn from...

Both are deep concealment. Im leaning to trying the smart carry first... because at least, if it doesn't work for you, you can return for refund. Not so with cel pal....
 
The rule of thumb is, you only get a second and a half to draw your weapon in most SHTF situations. It looks to me like the guy in the video for the holster spent all of that second and a half trying to dig the gun out of his pants, but who knows and as they say Practice practice practice.

Plus...What happens if you get a phonecall or a text at the exact moment TSHF and it is your wife's ringtone. You know you are more scared of your wife than any BG so you are going to be asking yourself, " Do I take the call or make this guys day". Lots to think about! Wink
 
Look into a SmartCarry Holster. I picked one up after comparing it to the cell pal. basically to wear with sweats & shorts, but found out quickly that it works great with my business suits & casual clothes as well. Deep concealment, fast draw capability & they have a 60day return guarantee!
 
The mechanics involved in getting the firearm and holster in position to draw are too complex to facilitate an effective quick threat response. I can see how fumbling with it could cost you your life...

For good all day comfort and easy concealment for most small handguns with quick access and fast draw, look at the CrossBreed SuperTuck. Or a similar design..

My 2 pennies...

I use the POCKETPAL-380 and find it both comfortable as well as functional, here it is with my Kel-Tec P-32 which is my primary all-around conceal carry loaded with 8 (7+1) .73 gr FMJ:

Super Tuck Holster

It is a great product and well made but has the same problems as all IWB holsters. Your normal pants size doesn't work too well and the grip of the gun still digs into my side. Haven't found 1 IWB worth buying and I have several different brands and styles including the CompTac. The cell pal allows you the ability to grab a gun, drop it in the holster, drop it in your pants and walk out the door. And no, I don't work for Cell Pal- just tried one at a Gun Show in Ft Lauderdale. Gonna give it a try but like one guy said, they ain't cheap when you have to get all the components. It might just go in the box with the rest of the holsters I don't use. At my age, I don't want stuff mashing my stomach or kidneys anymore and I don't want to have to be a contortionist to carry concealed.
 
I bought one recently because it looked like a great idea and I wanted to see if it'd work for me. It did NOT. No matter where I positioned it, the bottom of the holster wanted to flare out. It looked like I had a very thick book in my pants. It didn't feel comfortable when I sat down. I sold it for what I paid for it. With very baggy pants it might work, but with regular everyday pants (slacks & jeans) it just did not work.
 
Well, I didn't listen and bought one off Ebay. So far it isn't working. I tried a Sig 250 subcompact, Sig 1911 Compact, Glock 26, Ruger LCP and a Sig 238. The Sig 238 and Ruger might work but heck, they are more comfortable in your pocket. I am going to a Gun Show in the AM and meet the guy that sells them again. His demo certainly works and I want to see why. There is a difference somewhere- don't know if the one they use is longer and lets the gun go further down your leg or what. But the cell holster that came with the holster doesn't fit my phone so I am gonna see if he might swap and I am gonna spend more time watching how he does it and to see if there is any differences in his holster and mine. I haven't given up yet- the concept is too good to walk away. As I found, any gun with a long grip DOES NOT work for me and yet he dropped a full size 1911 down the pants and I sat down with it. Thats why I wanted one.
 
I just have this funny image of me trying to quickly get the gun out of my pants and ending up standing there with a handful of my underwear looking at the BG as he busts out laughing...:sarcastic:

Not good...
