You would do well to check out Bob Cook's holsters. He is located right here in Lawrenceville, GA and is doing some fantastic things with kydex. He is also very receptive to custom work without charging a "custom price." His website is Cook's Holsters.
I have also had great experience with multiple versions (IWB and OWB) of Blade-Tech holsters (Holsters | Blade Tech Gun Holsters | Knives and Tactical Gear and Dale Fricke's line, especially for appendix/Suarez-type carry with RMR sights (Dale Fricke Holsters - Custom Kydex Holsters and Mag PouchesDale Fricke Holsters). I just got my Cooks Adjustable IWB for my Glock 26... Fantastic! I ordered from their ready to ship on Monday... got it on Tuesday (I live in Georgia). Customer service is second to none. The quality of the holster is excellent and it is the thinnest IWB that I have used. Very little printing. I love it!
Buy one! You will love it!

Of note here, one of the screening questions for concealed carry permits concern those who have been institutionalized for mental health reasons for the past 5 years.
Meant to say, "within the past 5 years."

I like the Crossbreed for IWB. Mine is really comfortable.

You must acknowledge that the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights is, indeed, the supreme law of the land allows residents to carry concealed firearms. "justifiable need" for carrying a gun in public argued in 2010 suit. That a law that requires gun owners who want a concealed weapons permit to ask permission from a police official or a judge, or a gun board, is an unconstitutional restraint on their Second Amendment right to own and carry a firearm.
Were individuals prior to this regulation doing illegal things who were law abiding firearm owning citizens? I pray there are brave and courageous individuals in all states who would stand up against unjust laws and be counted.
Murdock v Penn, 319 U.S. 105: clearly established that NO state could convert a secured liberty into a privilege and issue a license and charge a fee for it.
Anything that stands in the way of that right is blatantly unconstitutional. The Bill of Rights was added to the constitution as insurance to protect us from oppressive federal gov't gun grabbers.
Google tactipac. I carry a 9mm xd service or Taurus judge easily and no belt needed. They even have a deep carry model.
I'm trying to begin doing some of what you're doing, on the side. Do I need to get a business license? Insurance? Certification? If so, from whom?
Your best ccw gun is the one you can shoot comfortably and the one that is comfortable to carry. There are infinite choices when it comes to what gun that is. Me personally, I carry a Smith and Wesson Shield in either the 40 cal or the 9mm depending on what I'm doing and have a back up Smith and Wesson Bodyguard in 380 cal. I also like the Springfield Armory XDM platform with its grip safety. I know that in the Republic of California there are a lot of restriction to what you can carry so I would go to a gun shop that has a range and spend a day trying different guns out based on what's able to be carried.
I want to thank all I too have been having a time looking for an IWB holster for my SR9C. Thanks for the input
I have a taurus p145 that I carry in my belt line. Is there a easier way to carry it.
Carry a Ruger .38 Special or a Kel-Tec 9MM!
That's true! And also the fact that most of the time your on your own during any crime against you, family, or friends. The officers come later to write reports and take names after the crime has been done. So yes we the people must keep our guns!
