    OWB carry for CC?

    Just wondering how many of you carry concealed with an OWB type holster? It seems like with some of the "high-ride" type belt holsters that it would be pretty simple. I'm looking for other carry options other than my current setup for my Glock 27, which is my Blackhawk Serpa. I really like the holster and it conceals well under a light jacket, but not so much under a t-shirt as the holster sits pretty low on the belt line.

    I live in WI and OC is legal, but I don't want anyone to know I am carrying. Shhh!

    Hmmm... well, I think you are on the right track with a light jacket. I also have carried with a flannel shirt untucked. 1911 in a Serpa. Especially the kind that is almost like a jacket. Then there is always the "shoot me first" vest.

    I know this isn't much help because I haven't received it yet, but I have this on order after a lot of research. I wanted something for OWB during the winter, under sweatshirts, etc for my Glock 27. Should be here in a couple of weeks.

    I do.

    Side Guard Holsters 'High Slide' for the XD-S and a Bianchi Carry Lock for the Kimber Ultra Carry, I don't care for IWB just doesn't work well for me.

    I carry a G23 in a 'higher' riding pancake style leather holster. Conceals just fine with a tee shirt and it stays very close to the body.

    Most any high ride holster, with an untucked shirt should work.

    Galco Concealable and you can hide it under a T-Shirt.

    M&P 45c in a DeSantis Speed Scabbard.

    It helps that I live in a state where 3 out of the 4 seasons I have some form of coat or plaid shirt to cover it.

    Much more comfortable than IWB in my opinion.

    Yes, I have carried OWB under an open shirt or jacket. It can be a very good way to carry concealed, yet is more comfortable than IWB.

    OWB is my preferred method of carry. There have been several good suggestions already, and I own and use many of them. For the last year or so, I have been transitioning to all kydex holsters.

    I find that they conceal just as well as leather, and, if positioned correctly, are just as comfortable as leather. The stability I get with them is unbelievable. The olny thing they are lacking is beauty. Then again, as a CONCEALMENT holster, who else is going to see it?

    The two I have found to work the best for me (so far - I haven't tried them all yet) are Raven Concealment and Crown Holsters.

    I also prefer OWB carry. Maybe because there is too much of me IWB. I carry a CM9 and Beretta PX4 .40 in the cooler months here in S.E. Wisconsin. I can do this about 9 months of the year here as you most likely know. I have Jeff Hays holsters for all my carry guns. Very happy with them.


    The Beretta is my heaviest CC and with it riding high with an 1.5 inch belt I can deal with it.

    I use a pancake holster made locally under a loose shirt or "longtail T" from Duluth Manufacturing. It's not "hi-ride" but conceals well. A good pancake works nearly as well as an IWB and is sooo much more comforatable. If the clothing allows, it's teh way to go.
