    I'm planning on getting an mp5 or mp9 in the future, to use it as a backup. I just need to find a way to carry it. I run a battle belt loadout, so I have a drop-leg holster and a molle mag pouch ( I just wrap the straps around the belt ). I already have a one point sling for my soon-to-be DMR m4, so I don't want another sling because I'm afraid that they will get tangled up and become useless. Any ideas on how I can carry an SMG?

    There is a holster out there, evike I know carries it, for paintball guns that will work with an MP-5.

    Shop around, you may find it cheaper. It only fits the right leg, so that might be an issue.

    PM me for additional information on a potential option to this if this does not suit you.

    I usually hold it by the pistol grip.

    I was thinking about your problem last night, I may have a design figured out that would create a holster to suit your needs. I'm trying to find some additional "information" before I can present the final idea. I'll update as soon as I can.

    I used a phantom weapon catch with my MP9. It's not really a holster, but it worked fantastic with my MP9

    As stated, I have been working on a model of an idea to resolve the MP-5 holster problem. Here are a few pics of my idea. If interested, PM me for more details.

    These would be MOLLE backed, so they could be attached to any MOLLE styled platform, vest, etc.

    I made one for an MP-5k and a standard MP-5 model; however, I will be looking into furthering the design because a friend of mine has a customized MP-5 and he wants one to carry his on his leg. His has a short body like the 5k, but a suppressor that nearly as long as the gun, so it will require some additional designing.

    I haven't had a chance to look into the MP-9 yet, but I will.

    I like the way this looks, a lot.
