I don't have to take it off to lay down to take a nap...

The only time it gets uncomfortable is when I drive the wife's Toyota ...

Yup............when I walk my dog at night just before bed, I pull up the side of my shirt to go behind the holster and gun butt. So I'm open carrying at that point. No one can tell as its dark and I can just let my arm hang at my side to cover also. Sometimes I forget to pull my shirt back over when going into the house and my girlfriends eyes will pop and she'll say.....what's going on out there ! What the he_ _ are you doing ! Oops.....

Finally get a holster that works well for you..........one you can wear all day........

I've been trying several of the holsters I've got and so far OWB and in rear jean pocket is the most comfortable. I've got a kydex and two leather OWB and they are all comfortable really. I'd like to get the leather so I could draw without it sticking. I'm working it a with some Mitch Rosen lub and a couple layers of plastic bags but it still persists. It'll come.

Honestly though I can't IWB a kydex holster.........that hard plastic against my side just digs in and drives me crazy. The holsters that work best for me now are the hybrid kydex & leather ones. The kholsters have that big leather area that covers the gun and spreads the weight out, then it's all leather against the side. Once broken in about 3 weeks you don't even know its there. I have a crossbreed mini tuck for my bodyguard that took almost a month to really break in, now I can't tell its on my side either..........they look ugly as crap...........but work well !!
Oh and the leather keeps the love handles out............even when she doesn't get close !!!!

One of my first carry holsters was a right-hand paddle that someone had put a clip on to make a iwd.

It would leave a mark!!!!

I'm down to 240 again from around 280, it makes a big difference ... the last time I carried a full sized [email protected] I had to use my elbow walking around Walmart to keep it from flipping over my belt.

The little woman doesn't have the PW here so I feel moderately brave.

Nice holster, the closest thing I have to that is a Kusiak, and it's pretty comfy. He's in Miami here and is good to deal with. He makes a really nice leather clip holster and half the cost of the Rosen......check him out online........you might like it !!!!

kahr 3.jpg I carry my CM9 in a combo IWB and pocket holster. You remove the metal belt clip when using in the pocket. Works great for less than $30. Its leather and molded for the CM9.

I am fairly new to cc and I have only used a "cheapie" Blackhawk pocket holster so far. It appears a little bulky to me with jeans but no more than my pocket knife and keys. I have to switch pockets of course but in dress clothes it is really not visible but I know it is there! So far so good!
