    P95...ah, yes aesthetics is won by OWB. I like the eagle design on your K&D. When I ordered my Milt Sparks 55 BN, I chose to go with horsehide with shark trim...even though I'm discreet about carrying, I still have to look at that holster when it goes on and off, and each time I admire the workmanship.

    I, too, find that OWB, as well as IWB, works for me. I choose one about as much as the other. Very little, if any, noticeable bulge with my Sam Andrews OWB or with my Brommeland IWB Max Con V. The quality of the holster (and belt) make a huge difference. I doubt if I could make my rig "disappear" with a mass produced holster. If you like plastic, there are also some pretty good inexpensive Kydex holsters that keep the gun high and tight. But a quality leather holster from any of the holster craftsmen we have here will generally provide complete concealment....

    I am 5'-10" and about 180 lb. I find IWB I can conceal a bigger gun with less clothes. Full size HK USP 40 hides well. I also find the farther forward , say 9 oclock or a bit more hides a full size grip under a loose t shirt well.

    For the best rigs around contact Survival Sheath Systems. He'll custom make a pistol/knife rig or a pistol/mag rigs, etc. Rob's stuff is great and doesn't imprint, even if I wear a sleeveless top and a light blouse over it.

    I'm in Washington state so we can open carry here.
