Is this considered a holster for carry?

    I just got a NAA .22lr revolver and it has one of those "holster grips" on it.

    My "holster grip" does not have the belt clip on it. I want to be able to just stick it in my pocket.

    The law says "any holster" right? So I should be good to go? I don't want to break the law.

    I thought I'd run it by you guys first.

    Here is a link to what one looks like:

    It is the fourth item down on the link.

    Thanks

    What about the little clips you stick to the side of the gun?

    That's a hipgrip, right? What if I stick the gun in my back pocket and have the clip over the edge of the pocket?

    Yes, a hipgrip appears legal.

    And, to the original question: I'd say that "holster grip" is legal because it is a "device, in which event the weapon may be concealed by the person's clothing"

    Oh, and that isn't concealed. Not that it matters in GA anyway.

    So the consensus of the board is that this thing is a holster, even considering I don't have the belt clip thingy on it? So it's basically a pocket holster? The whole thing is just flopping around inside of my pocket.

    When this holster is closed up, the gun is in a secured state, you have to open it to fire.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    The Hoster Grip is made of High Impact plastic and has a belt clip on the back side.
    :?: You took the clip off? I don't know about that.

    No, the gun was previously owned by a police officer who took the clip off of it so that he could just stick it in his pocket. They don't have to worry about such nonsense.

    Well without the clip it would not qualify as a hip grip. I would say proceed with caution. I don't think there is case law directly on point.

    Any way to get the handle exposed while it is in the pocket?
