Thread: How do you carry????

  1. #11
    Just curious as to why the ankle holster is out of the question? I know its a little less tactically sound but I use one for the 38 special I carry everyday. You gain everything in comfort if thats what youre looking for. It wouldnt work well for a larger pistol but definitely works for small revolvers. But whenever I carry my Sig 40 I use a blackhawk retention holster for my belt. But its extremely noticeable without a coat. you just gotta try different ones out and see what works best.

    Depends a lot on WHAT you plan to carry. I carry a Kel-Tec P-3AT (.380) as my main carry gun most of the time. I carry it in a pocketholsters.com holster with a wallet backer that totally eliminates printing. I carry it right front pocket.

    That is my choice because I am in shorts virtually all of the time. I also have a Kahr PM-9 that I carry IWB sometimes when I want something a bit bigger on me, of course that requires a belt.

    I also have a Bianchi X-15 shoulder holster that fits both my Ruger .357 mag and my Bertetta Vertec. Generally I use this rig with the .357 in the brush. It does not get hung up on branches,etc, is up away from water and makes a convenient carry for a bigger gun.

    For me it depends. What time of the year i.e. temperature, what kind of clothes I am wearing, Where I am going and what I am going to be doing. Sometimes in a strong side or cross draw holster or both as I often carry two guns. Sometimes in coat pockets. Sometimes in a concealed carry vest. Sometimes in a fanny pack.

    Search for Smart Carry or Khoslter on Google and You Tube. I heard nothing but good things about both products. Ultimately it's personal preference on how you carry. Best advise I can give you is first know whats out there, then talk to gun carry owners and ofcourse try some holsters out and see what you like.

    I myself have a standard plastic holster for my XD 40 that comes with a locking feature on it (made by CQC holsters, purchased from Blackhawk.com) problem is this makes my gun stick out like a sore thumb so I'm forced to wear a jacket to conceal it. My next holster will be from both Smart Carry and Khoslter.

    Good luck

    This advice is a good one. Thanks KathleenElsie...the only thing I do not like is the ...just on my lap while driving...thing. I do not think I am game to do this yet. In my spare break yesterday I was looking at a holster called Safepacker Holster. I haven't made up my mind about it yet. I need to do more research on it as I only have a little time in between breath.

    Thanks for your input. I really appreciate it.

  7. I use a Kydex/leather hybrid belt slide holster that I made along with a two mag holster which carries two SS mags filled to the rim with .45 ACP hardball and a government 1911 snug at the hip.

    I've tried a tactical thigh holster, I have a nice Safariland but generally use that for the woods.

    I don't much care for the Nylon holsters and will not wear a paddle holster. I've tried a few others with negative results so I made my own.

  8. I use either a keltec on a pocket clip, or a 1911 in a crossbreedsupertuck. I have worn the supertuck without a belt if the pants are semi snug without problem and with a slightly oversized t-shirt it hides well. Keltec hanging in the wasteband from the pocket clip with no belt not a problem at all.

    Check out CrossBreed SuperTuck. I should get a cut for all the times I recommend them... I would recommend a belt with it for a heavy weapon though…

    Also Blackhawk CQC holsters are good. I like the locking retention feature, makes it hard for someone to grab it. The lock release is in a very natural location. I have the one with the paddle and the belt loop attachment.

    Welcome to the site…
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Well I have to drive through some bad parts of town to get to some places. Very HIGH crime rates and my being quite pale, small and OLD (LOL) makes me a target. There have been three times I have had to pick the Mauser off my lap and each time those that were interested in me and the car turned cursed and left me alone.
