I'm about 5'10" and 170ish lbs athletic build and rarely wear any kind of heavy clothing except for those unusually cold days in January. Mostly just a Guy Harvey or a Polo and cargo shorts.
So I'm looking for advice on a weapon that will be concealable for me. I plan on using the Supertuck IWB holster and I'll probably end up getting one of their belts as well.
Ft. Lauderdale was 95º/95% two days ago.NO 1911, BHP, even in a Xbreed!
Elsie Ahrrrrrrr, mexican or pocket holster.
When you go to an IWB holster on the cooler days (upper 80s) you WILL
need a horsehide version. They don't sop-up the humidity and are worth the up-charge down here in south Florida.
Before you cash out on the Xbreed Supertuck take a look at Tommy Theis' offerings. These holsters are far better in the fit and finish department.Theisholsters.com | Products | Custom IWB Holsters
His prices are better and include shipping.
I am finishing up a two week test of my new Theis and will be posting a review soon. I can tell you that the Theis IWB Concealed Carry Holster is IMHO, the only IWB holster to use down here!
No matter what holster you get, be sure to order it with the Kydex Clips. I prefer the J-Clips, they hide better. The metal clips will ruin a good carry belt and many belts cost more than the holster!
