I use a Comp-Tac shirt tucker. It is an IWB that you can tuck your shirt over. Very good quality and excellent customer service. I can easily conceal a Kimber Pro Carry with just shorts and a t-shirt.

Belt holster, fanny pack and vehicle door.

If I am wearing a belt, and the temp permits a cover shirt, then it is in a pancake holster on my right hip.

No belt (ie. shorts) then it is in a fanny pack.

Every vehicle has its own weapon in a door pocket/glovebox/console.

Too dang hot in Texas for IWB.

I carry openly, legal in Colorado.

For Concealed Carry, I would put it inside the waistband.

You didn't mention what you're carrying, but I like the Bladetec. It is very thin, doesn't rub and has a j-type hook for your belt that lets you tuck your shirt in over the gun with a little bit of the hook showing.

Smart Carry works like a champ!

I carry either a Glock 30 in a IWB (shop.blade-tech.com/), or an SP101 in a pocket holster. It depends on the situation and the weather. If I were driving all day, I might carry either the Glock or my Para in a shoulder rig.

SIG 226 or 245 in a bladetech iwb same holster fits both guns. It's comfortable and keeps sweat off your gun unlike leather.

Wallet-type holster. Seecamp .32 auto. 5 years now. Hardly even know it's there most of the time.

I've been carrying a Ruger SP101 in .357mag on my side attach to outside of belt for few months now.

MUCH more comfortible then carrying my USP .45 IWB.

Small, packs a punch, and awesome packing gun during summertime here in Oregon.

I like my Don Hume opentop doublenine for my Beretta 92fs. It works well.

I generally carry my Combat Commander .45 in a Comp-Tac Gurkha IWB. Its comfortable secure and quick on and off.
Link Posted: 7/31/2002 9:52:20 PM EDT
well, it iwll not let me poll, I usually carry in a small of the back holster (CZ75) or if I am driving I carry in a sholder rig, with it slightly angled down for an easier draw

I own their "Shirt Tucker" for my SW99, and I'm very happy with it. I can wear it inside the waistband or outside on the belt, though I only wear it around the house since my CHL training expired before I could afford the $160 DPS fee. It's hands down the nicest Kydex holster I've ever seen or used. It doesn't look as neat or finished as my Uncle Mike's or FOBUS holsters, but it functions better than both of those combined. Greg Garrett owns the company, and is the guy who taught my CHL class post-9/11. He's a great shooter, and designs his holsters with what is essential to carrying in mind. He's also the ass used to model all the designs.

Comp-Tac gets the GBT seal of approval.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Holsters? We don't need no stinkin holsters.

My girl Kelly(Kel-Tec) just sits in my waisband, held there between my belt and my fat.

I usually carry in a fanny pack in the summer, when I am wearing shorts and a tee shirt every day. I go with a milt sparks inside the beltway rig in the winter when concealment is possible. My daily carry weapon is usually a Walther P99. when I am feeling in the mood, I carry my Kimber polymer custom--it is still too heavy for normal attire.

I use this same holster to carry my G23. I got it a few months ago, and wonder why the heck I didn't get it sooner! I had thought I would have to buy a mouse gun for the summer. Not any more! The G23 conceals perfectly. I highly recommend this holster. Also, the owner answered the phone, and modified the holster for me for free. I wanted to be able to use it for any stardard width Glock (G17, G19, G22, G23, G26, G27 etc.)

IWB- I carry a full size 1911 in the Milt Sparks VM-2 model. Its the best I've came up with. When I ordered they said 6-8 weeks for one in leather, but for the same price I could have one in horse hide mailed out that day.

Glock 19, Galco SOB.

I tote around my TR Special in a Milt Sparks Summer Special 12+ hours a day 7 days a week. Although they do require a bit of a wait, Sparks holsters are hard to beat. The VM-2 is another very good IWB.

Hmmmmmm, looks as if you have left off the two best tannery shops for handgun leather! That would be:

Mitch Rosen

and

Milt Sparks

I would also rate Kramer Leather over most if not all of the companies you listed as well.

I personally have found that the best IWB holster for LARGE pistols (I carry a full-sized Government 1911) is the Milt Sparks VersaMax 2. Great design, weight distribution, low profile, no printing. Awesome holster.

Glock 30 in a sidearmor IWB
wait wasn't very long and the holster is a perfect fit
Link Posted: 8/1/2002 9:25:01 PM EDT
carry my S/A 1911 in a Mitch Rosen ARG-DL. Love it. It was worth the wait and the money.
Link Posted: 8/1/2002 9:26:07 PM EDT
I carry mine so that it digs into my love handles. I also carry it in a el-cheapo IWB holster. I am extremely unsatisfied but I carry all the time anyways. If I would stop buying guns maybe I would have some cash for a holster. But nooooo, I'm wait to stupid to do that. Maybe I just like pain? [:0]

My main carry gun is my Glock 23. 90% of the time anymore I will carry it without a round in the chamber inside my waistband without a holster. When I do carry a round in the chamber, I use a Galco Royal Guard inside the waistband holster. I have a couple Sigs that I sometimes carry with a Milt Sparks holster.
Link Posted: 8/2/2002 5:12:13 AM EDT
Blade-Tech IWB (FBI cant, loops not J-hook) on a Mitch Rosen 1.25" belt.

Or, if I'm going "full tuck", a Gould & Goodrich belly band placed so the pocket is right where it is with the Blade-Tech.

Been thinking about the Comp-Tac tuckable, but I would need to glue a pager holster to the tab to disguise that, too.

HK P7PSP, Mitch Rosen strongside rig.

Alternalitvely, S&W 642 or 342, Galco fanny pack or Kramer pocket holster in jacket pocket.

Ocassionally a 1911, Mitch Rosen strongside rig.

I carry my Glock 23 in a Sidearmor IWB. I really like it. Alot of times, I forget I'm carrying.
Link Posted: 8/2/2002 3:35:07 PM EDT
Beretta 8045 in a Mitch Rosen 5JR.

Or if it's dressy an HK UPS.45C in a Rosen ARG. Gotta look good for the job sometimes.

I carry a Colt Model 1911A1 .45 Caliber Semi-Automatic with a 5 inch barrel. I prefer to carry it in the waistband, sometimes on either side (grip facing forward on my left and facing forward or back on my right) or in back (grip facing right), depending upon what I'm doing. At the range, I work with the piece out of all four positions so I'm both confident and comfortable in whatever position I'm carrying. You may wish to try this approach.

Look into "Pager Pal". Basically, an inside the pants reverse-paddle. Hooks on to the belt with a dummy pager. Bought one at a gun show last weekend. Seems effective. I carry .45's, usually a S&W 945 or a Recon (new toy I just got). Tried a full size, too, just to see if it would work - seemed to just fine.

Also like some of the simple DeSantis nylons. They work with a minimum of fuss. If you carry smaller, pocket pistols such as a Seecamp, Galco make nice holsters which work.
