Default Concealed Carry recommendations for my Sigma 9mm

Just got a Sigma 9mm and would appreciate suggestions on the best way to carry. Most of the time I'm in shorts and T-shirts, which limits the choices"I think"

If that's your usual garb, take a look at an "In Waistband Holster" (IWB).
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

A good belt slide holster that rides tight to the body or an inside-waist-band holster. Another option would be off-body carry, like a Maxpedition Gearslinger or <cough, cough> a fanny pack holster.

Don Hume JIT slide is an excellent value in belt slides holsters, and I can highly recommend it.

Don't want to ruin your day, but I have heard some pretty discouraging things about the Sigma's dependability. I think the first thing I would do is trade it for a more dependable gun, put it in reserve and buy something else, or at least take it to the range and put several hundreds rounds downrange so you know it will work when you need it, nothing worse than needing a leathal weapon and finding you have a 6 inch plastic club in your hand. Maybe I'm wrong and they have worked out the bugs in the Sigma but I know the early ones were jamamatics. That being said, what ever you carry, my recommendation would be to find a good comfortable kydex IWB. It makes it much easier to conceal if you dont have to worry about the bottom of the gun being visable. I love OWB leather holsters, but unless you routinely wear a long shirt tail untucked, it is a problem to keep hidden.
Good Luck

I had an early Sigma 40 and it was very reliable. I gave it to my son and he has not had any problems with it.
