Hey Paul, they do have a place you can try holster. Been using it for years. It is called eBay.

See the holster you like, buy it.
Do not like holster place back on auction re-sell it.
Start all over.

Sorry could not help it. But I do know what you mean about trying on a holster. I am a very big guy. 6' 1" about 285lbs, a little puggy in the middle, so with torn shoulders, both of them. So finding a holster that works for me is hard.

I hate those guys that can wear from 11-2 o'clock. But life is what you make it. Anyways, I have looked at alot of different style holster. I have found enough that I fan have different ones for different situation's.

Downside on the MTAC is the it is heaver in weight. The Crossbreed forms to your body quicker then the MTAC. One more thing MTAC sent me some candy with a hand written note thanking me for the purchasing. Nice touch.
They have apparently fixed that problem. They even have the upgrades for the older style if you so choose to go that route. I am waiting on mine now, will let everyone know how it is after I get it, sometime in 2012....

This is my current CCW setup, pretty dang simple actually. While I am waiting on the Crossbreed to be made and shipped, I carry my XD40.





Works well for me, left the belt downstairs though so no, Im not a goob, I do wear one.

I also use an ankle holster when I'm wearing jeans. I tried a shoulder holster and found that it was a bit awkward trying to reach past my chest to get to my gun....
Im a tattoo nut with 16 of my own and i like the ink there girl. Ill post pics of my set up later. but it involves a g- 22 and a blackhawk belt mounted holster and i also have a iwb for the g-22. thats pretty much it

Here's my two Conceal Carry Guns (Ruger LCP & Ruger LCR 357)...



Here they are holstered with pocket holsters...



Here's my typical pocket carry items; my wallet is a thin tri-fold, so you see how easy it is to carry in the pocket...

How do you like that 357? I am just starting to learn about firearms and am interested in a ccw. The salesman recommended it as a good "it just works" because it is a revolver gun for a beginner. Seems a lot of people don't like Ruger's semi-auto's but have nothing against their "wheel guns" (which I assume as a new learner means revolver?).

Does Popeye like Spinach?

Oh, it's a beauty. I love it.
The Hogue grips work great to absorb the recoil along with the Remington Golden Saber ammo I use. 125 grain has less kick, but is designed for maximum damage in self-defense.

I definitely recommend the Ruger LCR 357! =)
