What & How?

So what do you carry most often & how do you carry it? (or them if more than one!)

I usually carry a Taurus 650CIA (hammerless, .357, J-frame) with Speer .38+P rounds. I carry at about 3:30 in a Galco IWB, but I am thinking about getting a Crossbreed or Kholster - I have heard great things about them. I find this setup the most comfortable so far.

Sometimes I will use a "Kangaroo" style nylon holster worn IWB in the small of the back for my Taurus PT111 pro with 9mm Hornady Critical Defense, which will give me 25 total rounds (12 +1 in gun and 12 in spare mag.) in a fairly comfortable carry.

If I want to carry more rounds I go with my 9mm and use an OWB that I wear at 3:30 then I will add 2 extra magazines worn at about 9:00.

OK, enough about me - how about you? I am also open to suggestions to improve my game! (Thinking about adding a compact 1911 to my ccw collection next.)

If I'm in a work envirinment or some place I where I know everyone, I'll usually slip a Keltec P3AT in an Uncle Mike's pistol sleeve with .380 Hydrashocks into my posket.
If I'm going somewhere I am unfamiliar with the environment, I take a Glock G27 with Federal HST's in a fanny pack.
If I'm going somewhere I feel I may need more than that, I generally go somewhere else.

I usually carry the Kimber CDPII in a IWB holster> Also,at times I will have the Sig P238 back up in a IWB on left side...
If I am riding my bike, usually have the Kimber in a sholder holster and the Sig as back-up.

Sauer 38H, Blackhawk IWB holster small of the back. Or in my pocket depending on what I'm wearing at the time, The 83H is small enough.

I couldn't find that perfect holster so I decided to make my own Kydex IWB tuckable holsters a few years ago. I've made a bunch for friends and family and so far everyone like them. I carry my Kahr PM45 and my Kahr P380 in my back pocket with a leather wallet holster. I've become partial to Kahr's. So far I have an E9, PM9, PM40, PM45 and the P380.
 
I have a FA UZI so I think I have found my carry weapon. This looks like a good rig for me.
If that does nt wotrk I could always carry my MAC 10

I have an UZI also and thought about that rig! :mrgreen: It would be nice if SC would do away with the 12" or less stipulation on carry. I'd probably last about two minutes with that rig on... :lol:

Glock 19 or 26 in a tagua slide currently. I am waiting on my MTAC to come in. I usually carry a G19 mag in my back pocket along with a surefire G2LED.

Also carry a 640 in a galco IWB when i am dressed a little lighter or in a wheel gun mood.

I got rid of my P3AT, never could warm up to it. it worked great but it just felt cheap.

I did not know about the 12 in or less issue. Thanks So I guess I will have to go with the Mac10/45 in FA with the 30 mag.

I carry a Bersa 380 with a 9 round deluxe mag in a crossdraw when driving and in a Crossbreed IWB with Hornady Critical Defense and a 7 round reload in warm weather. I carry a Firestorm Mini-Forty in a DeSanti Tuck-it with Federal Hydra-Shok with a reload mag when I don't wear the Bersa. Occasionally, I wear a Browning Hi Power with Browning belt holster or a Glock 17 in a Blackhawk Sherpa paddle holster with Hornady Critical Defense.

My MTAC is in, I carried in it today. I always heard great things about both Crossbreeds and MTACs. I had a Crossbreed before for my XDs and loved that carry package. It was super comfortable and I couldn't imagine it being better with a thick auto like an XD.

I switched to glocks and needed a new holster for IWB carry. A normal human that was satisfied would buy the same thing. I did not. I chose to buy a MTAC to see what the hype was about and expected to be disappointed.

Now that I have both, I can say both are good quality and carry well. I prefer the MTAC. I think its more comfortable. I think it is finished a little better, and I think the Kydex portion of the holster is way better.

They were nearly identical in price. The only x factor on teh MTAC is how it holds up.

Hope this was of some help to anyone that might be looking for a IWB or those two in particular.

Usually I carry a customized Springfield Armory Loaded 1911 .45ACP in a Wild Bill Speed Scabbard. I sometimes carry a S&W Airweight model 642 .38 special in my front pants pocket on those rare occasions when I cannot hide the 1911.

MTAC update-

Been in my MTAC for over a month so far. Except for the times I carry my snub It is on me all the time.

Review- It's the perfect IWB holster. It's comfortable, perfect retention, fits all my glocks, conceals well, and did I mention it's comfortable? If you are looking at an IWB, buy this one.

I loved my supertuck but I think this is better by a slight margin. Main reason is the level of adjustment for retention and better kydex.

*Edit* Disclaimer- I have no dog in this fight, buy what you like, these are only my opinions and both of these holsters are top notch. I have no connection with either company and nothing but good experiences with both.
