WHich Concealed Carry Holster

Recommended Posts

Im still workin out my prefered method of concealed carry.

My EDC , Maxpedition Fatboy S-type, is with me every day.

My only holster i have is a universal nylon IWB. It doesnt have a snap/latch. so i need something else. Recently ordered a Shoulder Holster.

I carry a MP .45 4" barrel.

Peferences and suggestions please? FYI.. im a lefty

 

Ive scoured Blackhawk, Uncle Mikes, US Cavalry and others just cant make up my mind i guess.

Id stay away from the shoulder holsters for EDC CCW carry, hell even some training class wont allow em. A IWB that is comfy, with stiff ret., but allows easy pull. I Would suggest a Hybrid holster(look em up), and a CCW class. I use a DSG alpha for OWB in IDPA, IWB as an EDC, and their supose to have a molle attchment out shortly. Not best (try blade tec/comp tac) but good alla-round holster. BUT my main holster is a 10$ IWB pancake retention style cheapo(looks like two pieces of material stuck to clip), that has been great. Half of a good holster set up is a good belt(good leather belts dont make good gun belts) 1 3/4 wilderness Frequent Flyer (most casual riggers belt) belt is what I use, if I adjust it to be there It stays..http://www.thewilderness.com/storepinnacle/index.php?p=home

I like crossbreed holsters as they are all custom made for your dominant hand and type of pistol but will run you about $70 for one http://crossbreedholsters.com/

 

I also have a maxpedition colossus versipack that is my everyday carry bag that i use when going to work which i like since I can carry my glock 30 and about 5 mags with ease and still carry whatever else I might need for work or whatever

 

lunchbox is right about shoulder holsters, they are not good for CCW and EDC the main flaw with them is the way you have to draw you wind up sweeping people when pulling it out and there is a greater chance of an innocent getting hit if an ND or premature trigger pull happens. also the time it takes to pull just makes it so much slower than when drawing from the hip which is a natural area are where your hands are anyway. just my .02

Well...I see shoulder rigs have already been covered...:rolleyes: I have to agree with Wardog and Lunchbox.

 

You also have to keep you coat/jacket on, cant take it off as well. Around here when the weather hits 100+ last thing I want is a jacket.

 

You can also look at Don Hume holsters or Black Hills Leather. I personally like the cross draw rigs, you may want to take a look at some of them.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
