Holsters
« on: January 23, 2013, 12:48:44 AM »
I don't often CC, but when I do, its a pita.  I am looking for holster recommendations.  I currently have an XD40 that I like and would love to CC but have yet to find a belt/holster combo I feel comfortable CC all day.  I am actually considering picking up a different firearm because of this, but for the mean time, this is what I have and I'd like to see if I can make it doable.

My primary concern is this, many WB holsters seem comfortable while walking and standing, but not when sitting.  I have put a mount in my vehicle for easy access while driving, but what if I want to go watch a movie? Or go out to dinner, when my waste band is likely to fill up?  So I was thinking of a shoulder holster.  What has everyone had experience with and like?

Serpa is an entire line of holsters made by black hawk, could you be more specific.  What do you mean it's easy with a blazer?  Is it a WB model and the blazer keeps it from being seen?  Is it a shoulder version that is under the blazer?  If it is a WB model, can you sit without it jabbing you in the side?

WB version and its not seen because I have a blazer on.  Yes I can sit with it not jabbing me in the leg, but when I am in the office I sometimes take it out and put it in my desk.

I'm a huge fan of In the Waste band holsters. One big thing that I like is that nothing is visible below the belt line, so my shirt can ride up to the top of my belt before the gun starts to be visible. Also the ones that are leather backed are really comfortable for me. It does take a little getting used to, but I think they are great. You might need to step up the size of your pants though if they are currently a little tight.

My favorite is a CompTac MTAC. I am able to conceal my full size Glock 22 with just a t-shirt. It does sometimes print, but in reality, 99.8% of people will never notice unless the actual gun is sticking out. Think about it, how often do you look at somebody's waste if they are leaning over or whatever? You might do it semi often if you are looking for a gun, but most people are plugged into their iphone or too busy shopping, or whatever to ever notice a slight bulge from your shirt, which probably looks just like a belt pouch for a cell phone.

I recently bought a new holster similar to the Crossbreed, where the leather portion is larger than the MTAC. I'm still breaking it in and getting he leather to soften up. So far I prefer the smaller MTAC, but I'm sure once this one breaks in it will be just as comfortable.

I can bring the holster to the camping thing on the 16th if you want to try it out

What about belt recommendations? IWB versions of course, no point concealing if you have a 3 inch belt on.

I use a wilderness belt. They have measuring guides but the nice thing is that they're local so I just went in and tried them on to find the right size. The lady helped me find one that I could use with and without my in the waistband holster. After we found the right size they didn't have the exact version I wanted so they made one while I waited.

I bought the one with the plastic liner but its probably overkill on stiffness for Iwb. I really like it though

I carry a Ruger LC9 with a JBP Holster.  I always wear it IWB and so far it is the most comfortable concealed carry combination that I have found.  I really like the LC9 because of how slim it is, and it shoots well for me.  I like it so much I bought one for my wife also!

I have been using this for almost a year now. I can not use a waist line holster, in or out, and function in the positions I need to get in during work. I carry every waking hour now. I do not trust leaving my side arm in a back pack or in the truck.

For me it works great, even during summer when I am already over dressed for the weather due to my welding. Those of you who do not like to wear long sleeve tshirts with button or snap shirt over that from the months of May to November will probably not like this rig.

For around the house I have a holster that protects the pistol from what I do around here. I carry all day at home as well as while away.

Home invasions and burglaries have been happening for a while here in our area with the back alleys as the main access for criminals, at all times of the day.

Thanks for the info, I just bought a black one, for $20 and the reviews being good, this looks like its a steal, hopefully its as good as the reviews say it is.

I can't say enough good about them.  I have been using mine almost daily for over a year now and it has held up great.

I carry a glock 19 in a crossbreed IWB holster, really damn comfortable. I'll have a kel tec p11 in my boot as a backup every once and a while. I had a blackhawk serpa retention holster for open carry and jacket carry, but i ditched it once i started shooting competitions due to how unsafe i feel drawing from that thing.
