Anyone here that's a big fan of the VMII ever try the N82 Pro model?

It gets rave reviews for comfort, which for me is half the battle of an IWB model (I carry OWB but I *might* consider IWB next summer if I can ever get over having to buy larger pants). I'd love to know how it compares to the VMII, which doesn't by itself look all that comfortable without some sort of undershirt (whereas the N82 doesn't need that and can be worn directly against the skin with perfect comfort even with a pistol with a rough grip).

Kellytoons, the N8squared holster hit the market well after I bought my MS VM2. Since I've been completely satisfied with my MS VM2, I've not had any reason to get a N8squared holster and try it out. So I have no comparison experience to share with you.

I will say, though, that since I'm Mormon I always have a T-shirt on. My MS VM2 doesn't touch my bare skin. Neither would a N8squared holster, or any other IWB holster for that matter. But if you don't wear underwear then an IWB holster would always be in contact with your bare skin, no matter who made it. I'm thinking that could make a big difference in what you found comfortable.


Thanks,

Sap

Thanks for the reply. I've actually gone round and round on this and (right now, at least) have decided that my preferred OWB carry is just fine.

In the summer here in Florida (which is about six or seven months) I dress strictly in shorts and a polo shirt and my EDC is an M11A1 (so, essentially, a P229). I've decided that whatever printing there is (and there is some) is just what I'll live with, and folks will just have to deal with it. While an IWB would help, I am not going to deal with any discomfort at all just to be more "concealed".

Does a holster for the P229R also fit the P229 SAS Gen 2, or does the latter require a different holster?

Yes, they are exactly the same dimensions (according to the Sig site).

Like most have said in the waistband - Milt Sparks VMII. Comfortable, well made, conceals well and looks good.

I find out of waistband extremely limited, except in the winter with an overcoat. Even then its limited. Once you go indoors the overcoat usually comes off.
