How do you carry

#1

Post by USMC69 » Sat Sep 16, 2017 7:11 am

How do you like to carry?
Shoulder holster? Inside the pants? Ankle?

My preference is on my hip during the winter months when I can easily conceal under my jacket. Summer months are more difficult and at best I end up with a .380 LCP or .25 Beretta in my pocket. I know it's not ideal, but better than not having it IMO. How do you carry?

I prefer strong side carry. In the summer I usually use IWB and prefer OWB when it is concealable. I prefer real leather for holsters .

Same here. Summer carry is tough for me. I have yet to be able to find a good comfortable holster for IWB. Recommendations?

I appendix carry my C9, Yes it's a Hi-Point, but it's better than a stick...

Yes, definitely better than a stick.

Hi Cranky I prefer leather like the Bianchi model 3 but with my latest carry piece I settled on one of those cheap black soft synthetic with a single black plastic clip. I don't remember the brand but it was cheap and works. The local Gun Shop usually has them in a lot of sizes and can usually fit most Semi Autos and some revolvers.

I used to have a Bianchi pancake holster for my Sig 9mm. I regret selling it and getting a Blackhawk Serpa. The Serpa is a good plastic holster, but the Bianchi was a little more low-profile.
