    I didn't notice any thread like this so i figured I would start one, post a pic of your favorite Concealed Carry Holster, please feel free to comment even if you don't have a ccw License, I went through many before I found the one I liked, use the Don Hume in Summer because they are tight to your body and conceal easy with light clothing, and the serpa in the winter.

    I have bought a couple of Fobus paddle holsters (one for SA XD40SC & one for SA 1911A1). I have looked at the Blackhawk Sherpa and that is one that I might also be interested in.

    the one of mine in the picture came with a paddle, i just removed it to slide it on my belt. Im not sure but i think you can remove the paddle on all the blackhawk holsters

    I prefer an ICW holster with a sweater or shirt not tucked in. It doesn't leave a print under my clothing for all to see.

    I have yet to purchase a holster other than what's in my purse.

    Not really a holster in the traditional sense but I love the ClipDraw and have retired my Galco IWB.

    I use a flat pancake type belt Holster for my .45.
    I use a regular belt holster for my Makarov...

    How come no Shoulder Holster option? I know they aren't for everyone, and they work better in winter when ya wear a coat...but I had one for a ruger .38 and I really liked it. It was a Michael's of Oregon I believe, paid 2$ for it at a yard sale.

    Sorry Thrillbilly I was going to put that on the poll but just figured people could vote it under other. No actually my grandson was running me batty so i just hit the submit button, he wanted to shoot his BB gun and seemed that was more important than me being on G&G typing he is only 3-1/2 so i must supervise him. he does know to keep the muzzel down though and not point it at people(or my windows)lol

    Wow 2 clip draws already with only 11 posts, I just have 1 Question for you guys, is that double sided tape they give you with them really as strong as they claim?

    I did consider one for my M&P 40 but since i got the model without the thumb safety i decided against it for safety reasons, i preferred to have the trigger covered, you cant beat the price on them clip draws the inventor had a good idea and is probably a millionaire already. lol

    It depends what I am wearing, time of year and where I am going...

    Usually IWB but prefer belt holster.

    IWB. If its on the outside of my belt I dont consider that being concealed.

    Not legal in Ohio. Must be inside a holster - even if inside a pocket!

    I vited for IWB but the more I use my fanny pack the more I like it. I blend in as a tourist or just look like another Key West homo. Either way we have thousands of them.
