In February, I wrote an updated review of the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380. I featured a Pistol Wear PT-2 concealed holster in the article and I had much positive feedback on it. I really liked the PT-2, so I decided to try a different Pistol Wear version that is slightly scaled down.
The Pistol Wear Trump Card and Sub Compact Trump Card are lightweight concealed carry holsters that can be worn under the arm, inside the waistband, or outside the waistband. They are designed to be used in support of business attire or causal wear.
Much like the PT-One and PT-2, the Trump Card has a breathable elastic belt that is adjustable by the use of hook and loop fields for size. Three separate snaps allow the belt to be taken on and off without wearing out the loop area—ingenious! To account for under the arm carry, the belt is adjustable up to 46” with extensions of 10” and 20” available.
Trump Card’s pouch is perspiration and solvent resistant so that the handgun’s finish is protected even during moderate exercise or oppressive weather conditions. While the PT’s One and 2 have a generous open-topped pouch for the firearm, the Trump Card and the smaller Sub Compact Trump Card have a canted gun-shape to the holster.
The Trump Card fits compact pistols and short-barreled revolvers, while the Sub Compact Trump Card is made for sub compact pistols. The Sub Compact contains my Diamondback DB9, Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380, or Kel-Tec P3AT properly. I tried a Smith & Wesson Centennial Airweight M442 revolver in the Sub Compact, but it was literally a stretch.
The Trump Cards have a nylon strap and magnetic snap to retain the pistol or revolver in the pouch. I found that even after inserting my unloaded Diamondback DB9 in the Trump Card and shaking it vigorously upside down, the magnetic snap would not release and the gun did not fall out.
I have used my Trump Card for long exercise walks, moderate jogs, and dressed down concealed carry. It is comfortable and secure.
At an MSRP of $36.50, the Trump Cards come in Black or White and in Left or Right Arm configurations. Military and Law Enforcement receive a 20% discount with ID. I believe you can’t find a better lightweight casual carry holster than this at anywhere near its price.
