The draw is also slow!!
Yes, I read and reread that site frequently.Have you read the section holster section of cornered cat? Pax has a pretty good writeup there.
I have a shirt holster. I think it may be the slowest draw of all. But I bought mine for 50% off, so it seemed like a good option to have around. Unfortunately, it cut like a man's undershirt so would show under most stuff I'd wear. (Not print. I just mean, ugly man lookng undershirt. Ick.)
Shoulder might be good as another option, some day. But for me, it's in the same category as ankle or thigh.
Just a little Kahr PM9, so it shouldn't be that hard!You didn't say what you carry.

Patti, a thigh holster seems so awesomely James Bond! But is it comfortable??

Oh dear! Grady, I'm so sorry, but I just don't think that's working for you!
This, IMHO, has been a GREAT thread. & I have both bookmarked it & added it to my "training files"
I have for "many" years trained individuals in "concealed carry" The MAJOR problem I have had ( & my fellow instructors have ) is advising our female students. Thankfully, the ?? on the fire arms has become somewhat better ( many makers are now making guns that are designed for women. BUT, advising on how to carry is not easy. ( body configurations, dress style etc.) Your discussions on this are very helpful. KEEP them coming. ( pix would be of GREAT assistance & NO I am not wearing my "Dirty Old Man T-shirt on this )
BTW, here is a rig that I & others, have found very good for "off body" carry. I have carried my "cocked & locked" 1911 many times in one ( think Business meetings full of Liberals ) & never been spotted. ( Hang a fake ear plug out of it & walla = electronic device ) One fellow, female Instructor & high end Attny. uses one daily, either as above or on her brief case. ( her gun = Sig Sauer 250 she has alo ordered a "compct version" with the idea of carrying, among other means, in a thigh holster.)

Oh, yes, as a KILT wearer, much of this is applicable to me.
Here is a pic of me assisting in doing a class ( the other instructors are LEOs ) I am actually carrying 3 guns.
