    So.........I'm carrying a Combat Commander........appendix carry ?
    Doesn't it bother you fellas when you sit or do you just stand all the time ?

    Can a Commander size be carried with some sort of comfort in that position.....1 to 2 O'clock ?

    Which holster would you reccomend for it...............?

    Thanks

    Kydex holsters are constructed with differing thicknesses depending on the maker. The thicker the Kydex, the more expensive the material, and the harder it is to form. A mere 50% increase in thickness (.060 to .093) results in an over two times increase in tensile strength. Injection molded plastic (often mistaken as Kydex) is very brittle, and very inexpensive.

    While I would agree that some Kydex holsters should be less expensive than leather, others are actually more expensive to produce than their leather counterparts.

    Thank you for the vote of confidence on the Garrett Silent Thunder Defensive Carry Forum post. Mine is very comfortable in appendix.

    I have a Garrett Silent Thunder IWB for my Glock 26 that I've been using for over a year and have no complaints. I also have one of Dale Fricke's IWB mag pouches and plan on buying one of his holsters in the next few months.

    I use this: Shaggy, AIWB

    It's really comfortable, stable and sturdy. Rich is a great guy to do buisness with, a little wait as it's one man shop. The cost is going up as more people are discovering his work.

    The last two are very similar, and both high quality.

    Dale Fricke's customer service is beyond anything that I have ever seen.......ever!

    This is a fighting tool designed by a fighter, for a fighter.

    I couldn't agree more. Another vote for the Archangel. It works well for me, even while sitting. Use them with my Glock 17, 26, 1911s in Government and Commander sizes. I'm in shape though, which is a big deal when trying to carry appendix. I've tried a Bladetech holster that could have a zero cant with belt loops, and it didn't even come close to competing with the Archangel. I had a MTAC Neutral Cant and it was OK, but it just wasn't what I could get from the Archangel. It tends to get real hot because of the wide surface area it covers. I have never wanted to try a Highnoon holster because I dislike the big clips they use. Leather isn't as thin and concealable as Kydex is. I like Kydex IWB here in Georgia, because it gets hot here and I sweat a decent amount.

    First up, there's the much touted Dale Fricke Archangel

    This holster is recommended by Gabe Suarez, and it's really expensive for a kydex holster.
    If you carry a larger/heavier handgun AIWB there is NO equal when it comes to holsters. I carry a G17 and a G29 sometimes with 15+1 G20 mags AIWB. it doesnt move, it is supported and it is comfortable.

    I completely disagree. I have had no issue fast drawing my revolver on the move and getting on target accurately with a mr softy. I have never had an issue getting a good draw or a grip on my weapons, even with the boot grips.

    I am only stating the popular opinion regarding the Mr. Softy, from what I've read here and other places.

    But because of your experience with it, and the videos to back it up, I've already ordered one for my SP101.

    I do want to reiterate though that the Archangel holster is worth EVERY penny and as some have said before me, you get what you pay for.

    Absolutely! The ArchAngel is the culmination of a lot of research, testing and developing... And Dale Fricke is one stand up guy, with awesome customer service. Same with OST...only have good things to say about them.

    Another vote for the Archangel I carry XDs for EDC, also have an Archangel for my 1911 airsoft. Both are very comfortable, have driven for 12 to 14 hours with no problems.

    I carry with a blade tech uch and my LCR. It goes on when I get dressed in the morning and off at night. Even with the humidity in the summer I didn't have any problems. What I like is the ability to clean the holster (take it to the sink and wash), usually dust and lint. Also leather bothers my skin.
