Holster suggestions?

Looking for single clip type.

Thanks in advance.

Syngin: I have a High Noon Hidden Impact IWB that I've been using for many years. It's horse hide, tuckable and expensive. My carry gun is a P229 and it will disappear under a golf shirt. The gun is very comfortable to wear in that holster.

Regards, Porkie

My CZ P-07 - a gun about the same size and shape as the P228 - in its Cook's holster. Very pleased with both. The one thing I might change is to get a blank (undrilled) clip and drill my own holes about a quarter inch lower to make the holster ride just a little higher. You might also want to look at Garrett Industries' Kydex with smooth leather lining. This doesn't go "click-zing!" when drawing like straight-up Kydex does. And several members have mentioned the JM Custom.



Now here's something we hope you'll really like.

I tried appendix with my 228 in a Kydex but because of the length of the gun and the lower waist of the 501s I wear, it put the gun right into my groin, painful. So tried a soft holster but still biting. I ended up with a straight drop on the belt in the same position as a appendix. I can sit, bend over and drive without the gun hurting. It worked better for me. Now when I carry my "new to me" Seecamp (when I don't want to carry a weapon), it's appendix IWB and I don't know it's there. Chris

Look at VEDDER HOLSTERS. FWIW, they are Kydex with a single very strong metal clip. They have adjustments for cant and vertical up/down iwb. The pricing is very reasonable and turn around time is less than a week.

I've tried many holsters for AIWB for several guns and can honestly tell you the most comfortable and effective holster is Jim Ryan's AIWB-CDA II - http://jrcholsters.com/index.p...inside-the-waistband

I use one for my P226 and can hide it with just a T-shirt. Worth the wait and money in my opinion.

If you can't make any of the above work, you could have an appendectomy and carry anyway you want. Smile

I must just have the wrong body type for AIWB. I can carry my J-frame in that position, but even that is uncomfortable. I can't imagine something like a 229 there.

StealthGear Revolution. Just got one for the P30sk and love it. Inexpensive, very well built and great customer service before and after the sale.

I carry my VP9 in a JM Custom Kydex AIWB and it's excellent. I got the claw & neoprene wedge options, both a must-have for comfort and concealment. Best AIWB I've owned. I previously had an Incog, also good, but the JM blows it away.

I'll second this. Have the same holster for my VP9 (JM Custom AIWB with claw & wedge), and I use their AIWB with the wedge for my EDC G19 (or my beloved G32 that I cannot ever find ammo for up here in Alaska, and so don't carry as much as I'd like).
