What to do with holster?
When you have to go into a business that does not allow conceal carry, how do you store your holster? I was thinking about this as I want to carry to work, but have a belt loop OWB holster.
Should I undo my belt, take the holster and weapon off the belt and store in my car?
How do folks here on the board handle this situation?

I use a clip on, paddle or snap loop attached holster to carry if I plan on having to disarm. you can either leave the holster on or take it off depending on what works best for your situation.

On the rare occasion that I disarm, holster and all comes off.

I use a clip on IWB holster for circumstances such as that. I only use my OWB holster when I know I'll be at the range or open carrying.

I don't have to go anywhere I don't want. I plan my trip ahead of time, and if I ever get surprised at the door, I'll be turning around and not coming back with or without.

Of course it depends on what your state law says about GFZ's as to whether you have to leave your weapon in the car/truck, or just ignore the signs.
Here in Missouri it is really not a big deal unless you refuse to leave the facility when asked. But, since concealed means concealed, I haven't been asked to leave anywhere yet.

I have a Beltster and it is great!
No more unthreading the belt from its loops. Just stash the firearm and the beltster looks just like a nice belt.

Sorry, JMO but, that looks way too much like the way BGs carry.

Most times, I carry in a paddle holster, since I know I'll be on-and-off during the day. When I use an IWB, I usually pull the revolver and leave the holster on.

Another option is to pocket-carry a smaller gun when you're on a trip on which you know you'll have to disarm. No fiddling with belts and snap loops, etc. The paddle holster suggestion is also a good one.

Unless I know the places I'm carrying ahead of time and am sure I won't have to disarm, I will wear a holster with clips. Gun and holster come off together and get stashed in the car.

I just take the holster off. I use either an OWB belt hoster or an IWB clipped holster. The OWB requies that I undo the belt a couple loops. Its a pice of cake once you are used to doing it. Just don't get caught on a security camera. It will look a little strange. You could always do it a block from work. You want to be as stealth as possible. What sheep don't see they don't know.

I think a snap holster, such as the K&D Laredo Defender is as close to ideal as one can come if it is necessary to easily put on and take off. A good paddle would also work well. I have and use both at various times.

Depends what I'm carrying.....
If it's the Seecamp in my back-pocket, holster and all comes out.
If it's my K-9, I'll just take out the gun and leave it in the car but keep the holster on, assuming I'm just there for a short time.....say to run into the post office as an example.

Normally my IWB holster is hidden but if I had an OWB that would show, I'd leave it in the console of my truck, weapon in my COM gun safe.
