    I comply with the law to the best of my ablility where ever I go. I do my research before traveling to avoid breaking any laws and having to explain my non-compliance to a LEO.

    FOR THE RECORD, I DO NOT CARRY MY FIREARMS HERE IN THE STATE OF HAWAII!

    Thanks for clarifying that for me.

    Although I have most all of them and use them depending on the weapon and the circumstance, what I use most is a pocket holster.

    As it is usually hot most of the time shorts and light shirt are the normal dress and I happen to like my shirt tucked, so although I have a nice tuckable IWB for my PM-9 it is still not comfortable a lot of the time. I generally settle for the compromise of a Keltec P-3AT in the right front pocket.

    Using the GURU pocket holseter with the wallet backer is great holster. Carried with the holster inward and the wallet backer outward there is no chance of printing, and you can even slide you hand between the backer and over the gun and it is totally indecernible from the outside. It has been a good feeling in some suspicious situations that I could actually have my weapon in my hand rather than thinking "if I have to draw".

    If someone gets the drop on me in a robbery I can even delay him by saying look, I am just getting my wallet and showing him the print of my "wallet" through my pants pocket, then slowly place my hand into my pocket to retreive the wallet which he can clearly see.

    Of course the final motion is a quick withdrawal, point and fire a move I have practiced often.

    I now generally pocket carry the 3AT even when I am carrying a larger weapon just for backup and this very scenerio.

    I do have the same holster for my PM-9 but it is just a bit large for most pockets and can sightly impede the draw speed.

    I like the Kydex, but I have leather and nylon as well, depends on the situation - I even have some old GI belt hanger style for 1911 and Walthers that I use from time to time.

    Yeah but getting that Kydex to mold you you is a real bi**h!


    ALWAYS carry! ~ NEVER tell!

  6. I've yet to find a kydex holster that hugs close enough to the body for my taste. They all seem to stand off the belt too much. I don't CARRY a handgun so much as WEAR it. I want to be comfortable doing it. So far, kydex just hasn't worked for me.

    I suppose that it all depends on what your holster preferences are. As for me, molding to my body isn't as important as holding the gun securely is. I only wear kydex during the colder months under a jacket and it works quite well for me and my tastes.

    Since you don't have a favorite, can you at least that there is one type that you use more frequently than others?

  10. Like most people that have carried for awile I have a box full of them. Now if it went to open carry it would be a neat leather rig made by Andrews leather with a hog leg.
