I would never recommend Mexican carry. I think it is just too dangerous. Take some of the recommendations here for a good holster.

I carry my my Custom II in a Galco Royal Guard all the time. No problem. The carry problem, as I see it, isn't with the barrel length as much as the grip.

Mexican carry is just taking your pistola and just sticking in your waistband and calling it good
