    Question looking for some holster advice

    Well fellow DC members I am once again looking for your advice. Y'all haven't steered me wrong yet so please don't fail me now! Lol. I am looking to start carrying my m&p 9c owb. I just like the idea of being able to wear what I practice with and what not. I always carry iwb as of now. I use a cbst and love it but its hard to draw from and reholster for me because I have it so low iwb for maximum concealment. I am now between the dm bullard bodyguard and the raven phantom. I want comfortable and concealed because here in gods country you unfortunately can't open carry without going to jail. So what say you? I know there are 1,000,000 options so give me the most concealable owb holster that is comfortable for a relatively small gun. Thanks in advance

    I have two DM Bullard Dual Carry holsters. Great holsters but they sit in a drawer.
    I have two Milt Sparks VM2 holsters. Great holsters but they usually sit in a drawer.
    I have four Minotaur M-TAC holsters and I wear one daily. The CBST is a great holster but I just find the M-TAC that much more effective, versatile, and comfortable.

    Don Hume J.I.T. slide. Both comfortable and affordable (around $27). Take a look at GunnersAlley.com This is my favorite holster. I have one for my PM9, G26/19, Ruger LCR, and Springfield XD9sc.

    I have both a Don Hume JIT and a K&D custom holster ($55) for my Glock 19 &23. Both very comfortable and affordable. I will tell you that the key to comfortable carry is to get a good gun belt. It makes all the difference.

    For OWB CC I really like the Mitch Rosen line. Snug against the body, easy to draw and reholster.

    Hows the concealment factor on these? This is one of my biggest concerns

    The grip and corners of the mags are what print through my shirt. All of the OWB holsters will hold it tight and comfortable. It's a good cover garment for OWB that conceals.

    When looking at OWB holsters you need to look for a holster that pulls the butt of the gun in snug to the body. A quality gun belt is an important part of the equation as well.

    I agree that a good gunbelt makes all the difference. I use a a Beltman Belt.
    The M-TAC CAN be had with j-clips or velcro clips for max concealment, I just use standard clips.
    The Sparks VM2 you can buy tuckable clips that do conceal under the belt. The clips are proprietary.
    The Bullard comes with metal clips that I felt stuck out like a sore thumb but you can replace them with the clips from the M-TAC or any others since the design of the holster is not proprietary.

    My opinion is tht the M-TAC conceals best of the three I listed. I have to go business casual and have no issue with a pair of Dockers and an oxford shirt tucked in.

    OWB will not conceal with a tucked in shirt unless you are wearing a jacket.

    TT Gunleather DDOE. Double snap holster, quick on and off. I carry a 226 Stainless Elite. That's a big gun. Keeps it pulled in tight. Give them a look.

    I have a Bullard Bodyguard for my Colt, with the generous amount of cant it works well farther back ~ 4-5:30. I find it well made and it carries a heavier, longer barreled handgun well while still keeping it concealed under a shirt.

    I find this to be true as well . My hkp30 carries very well in a comp tac holster . It may not be very trendy or flashy but is comfortable and very practical.

    Do you have any preference for leather or kydex? If kydex, I highly recommend this outfit Personal Security Systems Kydex Holsters. Also, these are IWB/OWB interchangeable.

    That is a great looking holster. I have a couple 1911s and that style of holster would be perfect.
