    Dirty little secrets

    Okay, I'll 'fess up.

    I have a cheap holster that works great. I've been using it for over 5 years now. My 637 is riding in it as I type this. I don't ever talk about it, and I won't after this thread, because I don't want to suggest to those who are new to carrying that it is okay to skimp on equipment.

    So, what is the skeleton in your concealed carry equipment closet?

    My "skeleton" hasn't arrived yet. Like you, I have a cheapie IWB holster (on order) to keep a small Taurus snubbie in either appendix (strong side) or changing to cross draw (weak side) carry. My skeleton should be here in a day or so.

    Same confession, I use an Ace Case Tuckable... It works well... not "great."


    As far as skimping on equipment... I would never suggest you should purchase anything based on price. Function is key... price be damned.

    Be frugal.

    ...I sew...

    ...I buy leather and nylon clip-in IWB holsters and cut the seams out, remove the clip and pad which holds it, and re-sew it about 1inch higher on the holster...resew the holster and it sits that much lower behind my belt(AIWB)...the barrel pressing against my A pulls the grip tighter against my belly...and is just as easy to draw as before...and rides much better concealed that way beneath a pocket T...

    Uncle Mike's nylon. It came with the gun as part of the package. Worn it for over a year & absolutely no signs of wear. Comfortable. I have a bunch of other holsters but this one is my go-to. Retail price - about $17. Other holsters - $50 minimum.

    There - now I feel much better after my confession.

    My first holster was an Uncle Mike's IWB. It worked fine...

    My first BUG was a Raven MP25. It worked fine...

    My current spare mag carrier is a nylon multi-tool pouch. Guess what? It works fine...

    I love my clipdraw. It's great when you have to unholster/ reholster several times during the day because there is no holster. I keep the backplate on, but remove the clip to use a standard IWB holster.

    Okay, that one scares me a little. Please please please protect that trigger. A forgotten pen slipped into that pocket, or leaning up against something in the wrong way and you're looking at a very bad day.

    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    ...clipdraws have become quite popular...I've seen them for 30+ years...but I won't wear a holster/devise that doesn't cover the trigger, no matter the gun type

    Fobus Paddle OWB for the last year and a half. Light weight, easy on and off, comfortable, good retention, no obvious wear ...... Not the least bit ashamed of it. DSC02848.JPG
