Do you recommend inside the waistband holsters for conceal carry? I have one but haven't got to use it yet because I'm still waiting on my carry permit.

One thing for sure.. u need a bigger size pants. I bought a Raven Phantom for my Shield instead buying a new pants. Btw fyi, a Phantom holster can be used IWB or OWB. Buy once cry once with 2 features.

I'm using a Ramora with a Beretta PX4 storm subcompact 40. It makes for comfortable carry. And on top of selecting you're pants a size bigger you might want to think about ordering a good belt.

I have many IWB holsters but my favorite two are a CrossBreed Super Tuck and a Galco King Tuk with a Crossbreed belt or a El Paso Saddlery Belt. Keep in mind I have, as most of us do, a box hidden away of highly recommended scarcely used holsters.

Iwb is the only way I cc other than the very rare pocket carry. I like the crossbreeds also and anything made by galco is good as well.

I was fortunate to find CrossBreed SuperTuck Deluxe early in my holster search, so I've avoided the "holster drawer" to which chuckusaret alludes (thanks for your service, BTW). It works extremely well for me carrying a full-size XD-40 service.

The importance of a good gun belt, too, cannot be overstated. It must be stiff and resist twisting and sagging, and over time I've found the dedicated gun belts to outperform and outlast generic belts. You'll pay more for sure, but it's worth the extra money.

Here's what I recommend:

I understand the CrossBreed belt to be a good choice, too, but I personally haven't used theirs.

I've got a nice DeSantis IWB that I sometimes wear, mostly during the warm months. I've got several OWB holsters that I like, tho, and tend to wear more than the IWB.

The only holster I use any more is my N82 pro tactical IWB with my G35. It is sooooo comfortable and I love it!!! I have a Blackhawk serpa OWB too.
That looks like a really nice glock and holster.

I have a plain old Uncle Mikes IWB holster. I carry a Ruger P95 in it. It also has a magazine pouch. If I have a good belt on it's not a problem to wear all day. I have to admit carrying an extra magazine is a bit heavy. I have wanted a supertuck but the Uncle Mikes has performed well enough that a supertuck hasn't got on the list yet.

Why not wear your planned carry rig around your house until permitted. Anyone that can't be totally safe in their home and around their family shouldn't carry around someone else's. The first few times you drop your britches while carrying will provide lessons you don't want to get in a public restroom. For me at home the pistol and magazines are placed within reach on the counter while using the facilities (and, for that matter when showering). Away from home I place the hardware in document pockets in my LEO shirts. Just things like getting comfortable reclining - or setting down in a narrowish armchair - or tucking in your shirt are a different experience while packing. As they say, "You'll be glad you did." And congratulations on going for your CCW. Encourage safe, responsible friends to do the same. The more - the safer.

This is what I do. I live in Illinois and can't carry off my property. I 'practice' carrying at home should we ever be allowed to carry here in Illinois.

Here's a saying my mom used to tell me when I was little "Wish in one hand and **** in the other!". Sorry Winds it probably will never ever happen. You have a better chance to move.;)

I couldn't imagine living where you live ( Illinois).

I prefer Comp-Tac holsters mtac series. Just like all of use you more than likely will end up buying a few before finding your perfect holster.

Remora & stitched mouse pads is what I've tried, as well as one of those TechnaClips for my LC9 and LCP I used to have. Didn't like any of them.

Decided to throw this one out there, I too am waiting for my permit, but have been training IWB carry in my home. I have a Glock 23 and I bought a Don Hume Leather IWB Clip on holster for it. You can pick one up for about 35 dollars or so shipped from cheaper than dirt. It's good quality leather for the money and it will get the job done. I find it to be reasonably comfortable in wearing it around the house. A larger pant size is definitely in order. The only downside is they seem to frequently sell out but they have them available for most popular handgun models.

i'm a new ccl holder too and although i have not spent money on a lot of holsters, i did spend a lot of time researching. my main priority was concealment and comfort. i ended up with the n82 tactical professional holster. i must give credit to those who gave out their testimonies about how comfortable this holster is... it's true, you hardly feel any discomfort wearing it and it secures and conceals your firearm nicely. here's a sneak peak...

I use a Gould Model 810. They (IWB rigs) do take a little getting used to bu tI really think most all holsters do.



They can be had around 50 bucks these days I believe....
