Default Can I get (help carrying) a WITNESS?

Hey everybody. So here's my conundrum. I'm going to be getting my CCW permit soon and after more deliberation than most people could probably fathom I've selected the EAA Witness P Carry in 10mm as my ideal sidearm.
Now here's where I ran into the problem: actually CARRYING it. I can't find an acceptable, reasonably priced holster for the little pack howitzer. I'm looking for either an IWB or a vertical shoulder rig (sounds weird I know, but best ways to conceal it based on how I dress) in black, preferably leather or kydex I guess. Not a fan of nylon.
If anyone knows what other models the holster manufacturer might list that the Witness fits as well (say a CZ or something) that would be a huge help. I've looked all over and the only places that actually mention EAA usually say either the Windicator or a full size Witness, not the P Carry.
Thanks for the help!

Check out ebay. That's where I usually find what I want.

I have to suggest the Old Faithful IWB quick assembly kit. $50 delivered and all you have to do is screw it together. Great retention, great quality components American made, and 50 year warranty. They make one for about every pistol and if you want to live on the edge they will send you an unformed kydex that you can do on your own, not that I would suggest it.
Check them out, if they make one for your pistol you'll be glad you did. I have been using one for my Nano and its really comfortable.

Thank you both for your help! I found a perfect holster from Old Faithful. Now I just need to figure out which handgun model to select, since EAA isn't listed. I figure it would have to be a CZ. I'll have to go over the dimensions to select a model, and there may be some dremel work involved, but that's no big deal. If anyone knows which model it'll fit best though I' appreciate it.

Check out concealment solutions. They do the black mamba which is a leather backed kydex IWB holster. I know he's busier nowadays but before you could call him and ask about custom builds. If he could get a mold or if you were willing to loan out your gun for him to make the mold he'd make one for you. Top notch quality and one of the most comfortable IWB's I've ever owned.

I have a baby eagle which has a similar issue since it is the same design as the eaa witness. cz and beretta 92F use the same mags and should be similar sized. the CZs are a different width though. Not sure about the beretta as all I know about them is I did a magazine mod for my baby eagle. I bought a 1911 holster that my baby eagle fit's in beatifully but the holster is about 2 inches to long. The glock holster is much wider than the 1911 holster so if they aren't formed holsters the glock one might work.

Galco is probably your best bet.But i have to ask why would you want to carry a sidearm so heavy?
