    Tuff choice need some help

    I bought a Sig P220 compact some months ago, Now im in the market for a custom holster. Thing is, wait time is almost 4 months so I want to make the right choice. Now Ive already decided to go with Big River Leather so please don't recommend any others.

    First up is the 1 I want, but im concerned about how close it will hang to the body, I should add these will be used for concealed carry, open carry is also legal in Washington State.

    This is a remake of Bruce Nelsons "Professional"


    The other im looking at is a classic pancake design. I know the design is popular.


    I always hear people complaining about buying multiply holsters, I hope I wont be that guy. If any of yall have these designs let me know how you like em. Thanks

    I'm a pancake guy.

    I like the "Professional." I've used John Bianchi's rendition of Nelson's Professional, the Askins Avenger, for many, many years, it's an excellent design. Plus, for me personally, less leather is better.

    The pancake will hold the gun in tighter to your body and is not as wide.

    Nice looking holsters! I believe the pancake is the easiest to conceal. As stated above the pancake draws and holds the weapon close to your body. The "professional" is an avenger style and I believe they are the most comfortable to wear. The avenger style is a little more bulky. Those are generally the trade offs.
    I wear a pancake for EDC concealed carry in WA.
