    New to the forum

    Hey Concealed Carryers,

    I am new to this forum however I have been a law abiding CC for 1 year and 2 months now here in N.C.. I was wondering what is your summer time attire for carrying and your winter if you want post pics of your own gear. I am trying to find a more comfortable way to CC without it printing. I am a small frame 5'9 man weighing 130 lbs. I have yet to find anything comfortable with a fast draw except for a blackhawk pancake holster with a thumb break my conceal carry weapon of choice is a Glock Gen 3 model 27. I have purchased iwb holsters(none I have found are comfortable and have a fast draw), shoulder holster (love it when it turns cold but can't pull it off during the summer months) and don't like the idea of the leg holster being to far to draw.


    Thanks,
    Blake

    Welcome to the site and to the world of carrying!

    Try looking at this site: Theisholsters.com | Home | Custom IWB Holsters

    Tommy makes a great holster and one that virtually vanishes when you cover it with just an untucked shirt, even for a guy of your size. I carry my CW9 in one every day and it is by far the most comfortable holster I have ever owned. I also have one for my Glock 23 and even that gun vanishes under just a T-shirt.

    Yes they are. And Tommy is a very good person and he customer service is second to NONE. I own two of his holsters and when I bought a new, thicker belt, the kydex clips on my holsters no longer fit well around the thicker belt. I emailed Tommy to ask about buying larger clips and he just sent me a pair for each of my holsters plus two sets of metal clips for them in case I ever wanted to try them, all at no cost to me at all. He's a great guy and makes a good product. I could not be happier with my holsters from him and I highly recommend him.

    You've sold me on trying a Theisholster, ordered one for my PM9 this week. Was thinking about a Crossbreed mini-tuck but for the price difference decided to give Tommy a try. If it works as expected, will be ordering another for my M&P.

    Where in NC are you located? For IWB you could try N8^2 Tactical if you are concerned with comfort. http://n82tactical.com/n82store/ These are made right near Lexington, NC and are all US made. I have a couple original models, and a professional for my 1911's and (obviously lol) I have been very pleased with their comfort and performance.
