* Question: Will my pistol fit in the Pistol Mask?
Answer: The interior dimensions will accommodate a pistol with a width of up to 1.05" (at the widest point-including the grip) and a height of up to 4.60" (as measured from the top of the rear sight to the furthest point on the grip - check with your manufacturer to see the official height, but you need to measure your own pistol because some extended mags or thumb extensions may make your pistol taller than their official height). On this page we have posted a list of pistols that we know to fit. In addition, the thumb hole in the back panel is shaped so that some pistols measuring wider than 1.05" may also fit if the safety and slide lock fall within that open space in the back panel, (as does the P938 with a standard grip. meaning-the P938 "Custom" will not fit because the grip is too wide). Please let us know when you identify one that we can add to the list.
* Question: Will my 1911 fit?
Answer: Probably not, because most 1911's are wider than 1.05" and the dovetail hand protector on the rear end sticks up too high in the Pistol Mask. However, the Sig P238 & P938 has a similar design- just smaller, and it fits nicely. If you think your pistol should fit but want to be sure before you purchase, send us an email with the model of your gun and we will get you the answer.
* Question: Will it fit ME?
Answers: Just like all inside-the-waistband holsters, if you carry a lot of weight on top of your belt, the grip of the pistol will be forced outward (more so when sitting). The same situation holds true for the Pistol Mask. - just so you'll know.
* Question: Is the Pistol Mask larger than a cell phone?
Answer: The area of the Pistol Mask that covers the grip of your weapon is slightly smaller than an iPhone 6 Otterbox, (length plus width). It also has a tiered design to give the illusion of being too thin to be concealing a handgun- the front portion is about 3/4" thick -not much thicker than many of the cell phone cases on the market. The back portion is recessed by about 1/4" all around to be not visible from some angles.
* Question: Does anyone ever ask why my cell phone sits on top of my belt?
Answer: It sits only about 2" higher than a cell phone on a belt clip, (because that's where your gun grip is), and rarely does anyone ever look at it.
* Question: Has anyone ever called you out and asked what that is on your waist?- or suggested that it was not really a cell phone?
Answer: No- Not once in the two years that I've been wearing the prototypes has anyone even suggested that it may be anything but a cell phone. The photographs that we post are a little decieving, because we are showing a close-up focused in on the Pistol Mask. In reality, people will see your entire body with a 'cell phone' on your waist. If anyone bends over to look at your phone, you have a different problem on your hands.
* Question: Does it come in any other colors?
Answer: The front is a charcoal color like most cell phone cases. We have two models- one with a gray back panel to wear with lighter colored shirts, and one with a black back panel to match darker colored shirts.
* Question: Why the blue "CHL" sticker?
Answer: We include a reflective "CHL" sticker ("Concealed Handgun License") in Police Blue with each Pistol Mask. It is your option to use it or not. God forbid, you are involved in a shooting, this may make it less likely that you are mistaken by police as "the threat."
* Question: What makes for the perfect concealed carry holster?
Answer: There is no such thing. The Pistol Mask is comfortable, convenient, quickly accessible (with one hand), totally concealed, attractive and affordable. One of the main things we designed into it is the ability to access and draw your weapon from a sitting position- even while buckled into a seatbelt. Try that when your pistol is in your pocket, on your ankle or stuffed down your pants.
* Question: In which position do you wear it?
Answer: About 2:00 appendix carry.
* Question: Will it accommodate a laser?
Answer: It depends on which gun/laser combination, but several models will fit with either the Crimson Trace or the ArmaLaser TR Series.
* Question: Can I wear it with my shirttail out?
Answer: There are better holsters for when you want to wear your shirttail out. The Pistol Mask is designed for immediate, one-handed access while wearing your shirttail tucked.
* Question: It doesn't look like you can adjust the cant on your pistol.
Answer: Was that a question? ... Very slight adjustments can be made to the cant and to the height of the grip by using different combinations of the included sizing spacers. But, concealment was our no. 1 design priority and we wanted to keep it small.
* Question: Can I use a extended mag with my Springfield XDS?
Answer: Springfield's 6-round Mid-Mag X-Tension will fit but not the larger mag. The internal cavity limits the overall height to 4.65".
* Question: Can I wear it with my derringer?
Answer: #1) The internal cavity will accommodate a pistol with a maximum width of 1.05" and most derringers have a wider grip than that.
#2) The classic derringer design does not include a trigger guard, so the trigger of a derringer would rest on top of one of the blue sizing spacers- not a safe thing to do. However, some derringer designs, such as the DoubleTap Derringer, do have a trigger guard and so would carry just fine in your Pistol Mask, as long as it is within our posted dimensions of 1.05" wide and 4.65" high.
* Question: Will it work with a Smith & Wesson M&P 45?
Answer: No.- Unlike the M&P Shield, the The M&P 45 has a height of 5.88".

A list of some of the sub-compact pistols that will fit the Pistol Mask
Uncompromising: The Pistol Mask- a Patented IWB CCW Pistol Holster designed for those who don't want to change the way they dress just to conceal their weapon. If you prefer to carry a fully loaded 9mm, .40 caliber, or even a .45, but don't want to wear your shirttail hanging out or wear a jacket in the summer heat - the Pistol Mask is a great solution.
Concealment: The Pistol Mask looks like you have a cell phone on your waist - complete with camera lens, speaker, volume buttons & power plug. Its tiered design obscures a view of the back section and, along with the dual colors, helps camouflage the depth of the Pistol Mask, making it appear too thin to be holding a high powered weapon. The charcoal outward color is a popular color for smart phone cases while the lighter gray of the back panel blends into light-to-medium shirt colors, (also now available in All-Black for wearing with dark colored shirts). Only you know that your full-powered & fully loaded weapon is ready at the 2 o'clock position.
Quick Access: When it's time to draw your weapon, a quick tug on the front panel overrides the magnetic closure and releases the spring-loaded panels to open flat against your body - presenting quick and snag-free access to your pistol.
Secure Grip: The back panel (against your body) has a cutout that serves two purposes:
1) It allows your thumb to wrap around your pistol for a firm grip, and
2) It accommodates some pistols that may otherwise fit if their safety or slide lock were positioned differently.
One-Handed Draw: Leaves your leveraging arm free to create a buffer between you and the aggressor - Instead of tugging at your clothes or fishing your pistol out of your pants.
Draw from a Sitting Position: You'll have instant access to your weapon in your car, behind your desk or at a dinner table - without having to stand up or draw attention. If you're sitting at a stoplight and a threat emerges, you can pop the panels and firmly grip your pistol without unbuckling your seat belt or even shifting your body position. And if the threat diffuses, discreetly close the panels again with one hand.
Fits Dozens of big-bore Pistols: Using the enclosed spacers and screws, your Pistol Mask is adjustable to fit dozens of the most popular sub compact pistols in 9mm, .40 cal and .45 cal (& .380) (See the list below for pistols we've tested)
