  1. new carry permit, holster questions

    Hey there everyone,
    Just got my permit, and bought an IWB holster for my sig 2022 (i'm a big guy, size of the pistol not really a problem for me), but i'm not really liking the IWB holster, any suggestions for other options that are concealable? For the 2022 specifically?
    Thanks!
    -Mike

    Have you given the IWB a fair time to get used to it? They are hard to beat for concealibility.

    If you are new to carry it will take time, I carry full time OWB, good quality leather/holster/belts help, but wear all the time and you will get comfortable.

    I carry my Ruger SR40c in a Bianchi Carrylok holster. It's pretty much a pancake holster with level-2 retention. I highly recomend them. They had the only shoulder holster that was comfortable to wear all day I could find. Everything else was crap. A quick search for Bianchi Sig 2022 holster returned this:
    Bianchi Sig Sauer Holsters - Bianchi Sig P229, P220, SP2022 Holsters & More
    I've also used a Fobus paddle holster but they're not as easy to conceal. I'm in an OC state so I wasn't too concerned. Check them out:
    Fobus Holster
    I think the paddle type holsters are pretty comfortable and they're easier to get on and off than the belt holsters.
    Anyway, hope this helps. Let us know what you figure out.

    Someone once told me that "once you make the decision to carry concealed, you will eventually end up with a drawer full of holsters." in other words, you have to try different ones and find the right one for you. If you have friends w a holster that fits your gun, ask if you can try it out. The Cross Breed super-tuck gets very high reviews for comfort.

    I would echo the advice given. Give your holster time to shape itself to you if its an IWB.

    If you have given it sufficient time (several weeks) and still cannot stand it, I like the Kholster line. Kholster Concealed Carry Holsters - Made in the USA<br />

    Ever think of carrying behind your back? If so, and your right handed, try a left hand IWB behind your back. And if your a lefty use a right hand IWB behind your back. Or maybe try a shoulder holster.

    Give it time and play with it and the way your body takes it. What I mean is we all have a sweet spot, the music sounds and the angels sing when you find it. Make sure you have a good belt to support your holster, doesn't do any good to have a holster if it doesn't stay in place.

    I tried IWB and am a confirmed "any other way" advocate. I know those who carry that way love it and bless their hearts, but it isn't for me. I have a kangaroo carry which is worn under your shirt and rides much like a shoulder holster. It is virtually invisible even under a T shirt or golf shirt. I also have a nice leather shoulder holster, sometimes I go with a simple blackhawk set up with pancake (my range carry method) or I have 2 nice leather vests, one heavy one light, both of which are modified to carry like a shoulder holster. Also I have a couple pairs of ccw pants which have pockets tailored to pocket carry. The pockets are adjustable and can snap out so draw is easy even from a seated position.

    I guess, Yeah, I got a drawer full. But I use them all at different times.

  11. Hey everybody,
    Thanks for all the advice! So i've given it a while, it's a clone of the crossbreed I got off ebay, but horsehide, nice enough, still haven't found the magic number. I can't really carry shoulder harness, which would be my preferred. I think i'm just going to have to find a smaller pistol for daily. I can shoot ambidexterously so I tried the small of the back and that is most comfortable, but even with a solid leather gun belt, she starts riding low and suddenly i'm printing both the weapon and my gigantic ass crack :).
