    for IWB carry, a galco Summer Comfort works very well...

    It's easy, stop adjusting, shifting and checking.

    very good point!

    I have the same problem only here in Ohio we have to practice the buckeye tuck (exposed, in holster on person while in transportation) and I use a Bianch Minimalist at 3:00 for a Taurus PT24/7 Pro, not a small gun and many of the same problems...

    I have since put a clip draw on mine and when I am not in transportation and want to conceal I simply move my Taurus behind the empty holster... (between the holster and me) people who know me assume that I have disarmed and those who don't have been very polite in inquiring as to why I am carying a holster... good op to talk about CHL in Ohio and have made a few friends this way

    BTW I do not let them know that I am carying.

    MR D

    How do you like the clipdraw? I was thinking of trying one out to use mainly in the summer time.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!

    just out of curiosity...what I'm hearing from your post is that you only have to have it "displayed" while you're in your vehicle and you carry using the clip-draw while you're not in your vehicle? If this is the case, why not just get a holster that clips or snaps on to the belt (one version of the Minimalist functions this way, don't know if this is the one you use). That way, you could just keep the holster in your vehicle to use while driving, and you wouldn't have to walk around with an empty holster on your hip.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Dont adjust. Dont shift. Dont check.

    Dont worry. Sometimes I think I could be standing under a giant, pink, flashing neon sign that said "this man is armed" and no one would notice unless they actually saw my sidearm.

    During the first 3 or 4 weeks that I carried all the time, I found myself checking my gun quite often. Between the fourth and sixth weeks, I settled myself in to having the gun in the right place.

    I use an IWB, so I have a little more leeway on reaching without flashing or printing the gun. The other nice thing about an IWB holster is that the gun stays close to your body. Moreso, I think, than an OWB.

    YMMV one hell of a lot.
