Here in Ohio I really think the way things are going that we'll get CCW here for the first time soon. I'd be very interested in what kinds of holsters you others that have CCW use. Most comfortable kind of holster? Best kind for concealment? Any pics would be greatly appreciated. By the way do any of you carry in a crossdraw? Thanks for any input. CAPITALIST

My favorite holsters are Mitch Rosens, but they're pretty expensive. I usually carry a Kahr P9 outside the waist-band, or a S&W 3913 in a shoulder rig, depending on my clothes.

I'm 6'2 225lbs. Depends on the time of year what I wear. I'm looking at getting a compact .45 to carry. Moneys no object on the holster. I only sweat alot when I'm working on the outside of a house in the summer. CAPITALIST

There's no such thing as a comfortable CC holster (hell, there's no such thing as a comfortable holster - period!). But you can get used to anything given enough time. My favorite one these days is Milt Spark's EX: [img]http://www.miltsparks.com/images/Photos/EX_large.jpg[/img]

Oh ya. I forgot to mention. I'm left handed. Any good left handed holster manufacturers? CAPITALIST

CAPITALIST, I'm just about your same size, and I carry my Kimber Pro Carry just about everyday in my Milt Sparks Versa Max II, just like RealElmerFudd recommended. [img]www.miltsparks.com/images/Photos/VM-2_large.jpg[/img] It's very comfortable, even sitting down driving, and conceals very well under a bowling type shirt or an untucked polo shirt.

Man that holster in your pic looks pretty sweet. I'm gonna have to look into one of those.

Wolfpack: Leather Galco, beautiful holster, strong stiching.

Yep, Galco made the best holster I've ever owned. It was made for the (then brand new) SIG-229. It looked like an SOB, but was raked WAY back (not forward) for "Chicago" crossdraw.

God,,, I thought I'd be the lone weirdo who still appreciates quality leather. Nothing quite like (the torture of=) breaking-in a good holster (shoes, boots, saddle, even a belt) 'till it's shaped just like you. (Now that that's out of the way -- don't ignore Kydex!)

They are nice...Not cheap but the best never is!

Capitalist, You're about the same size as me...if you're able to, try this rig on and see how it feels: Galco Concealable, with matching gun belt and double offside mag pouch. Galco makes this holster for just about every gun out there. Mine's for my HK USP Compact .45ACP. "1" said there's no such thing as a comfortable holster - I suppose he's right; however, I've carried in this holster, day in and day out, all day, everyday, 24/7 (well, you get the idea) and it's the most comfortable holster I've ever tried. Having said all this, try on with your weapon and get the best fit possible. And, just so it's stamped in your mind - GET A DECENT GUN BELT. You wouldn't believe the number of people that'll spend $2,000 on a handgun, and no more than $20 on a holster. By the way, be prepared to experiment a lot. I think most of us that carry a lot could fill up closets with hardly used leather.

Arm-rail system, like in Taxi Driver

Or like the one Antonio Banderous had in Desperado. Does any body have plans for this? I always thought it was cool.

I'm not sure what "arm-rail" system means, but I wonder if "the one Antonio Banderous [sic] had in Desperado" is the same one that was in "From Dusk 'til Dawn." There was a fantastic concealed revolver in that movie.

MSP paddle for on body wear. Strong side behind the hip, no strap. Problem was that it was too tight. I had to use four plastic bags to stretch it out to fit. Other than that, great. Off body I use a fake day runner. I am a lawyer and in the north half of the year I can't get to on the body holsters because of suit coat and over coat. Plus, I am in the car a lot when I am out. Off body has a real place for me.
