    There's no easy answer without some more information, even then it's not easy. Just read about the box (drawer) 'o holsters most everyone has.

    For my P229, I carried it in a Don Hume H726. High ride, regular draw, very comfortable.

    Now there are hybrid holsters that seem just about perfect. The comfort of leather and the rigidity of kydex. They're inside the waistband (IWB) and with the exception of the Smartcarry, probably the most concealable.

    A lot is going to depend on your body type, the style and type clothes you wear, the climate, the level of security you want, and how much you are willing to spend.

    There are a lot of posts here with reports on the various makes and manufacturers out there. There are banners at the top of each page of this forum in fact.

    Very important, choose a quality GUN BELT. One actually designed to carry a gun. A regular pants belt is not going to cut it. The belt helps secure the holster and distribute the weight of your rig making it infinitely more comfortable. Think of it like this, you have invested in the best gun you want to carry; does it make sense to put that gun in a $100 holster and expect the entire package to be secured by a $8 belt from WalMart?

    A good belt can make up for a substandard holster, but a substandard belt will ruin the capabilities of a great holster.

    Good Luck and welcome!

    BTW I just thought you might want a little more information.

    Outside the Waistband (OWB) or a belt holster. These are typically the most comfortable and least concealable group. They can be concealed quite well with a cover garment, a jacket, an untucked shirt, etc.

    Paddle holsters are a sub-set. They have a rigid piece of material that slides between your body and your pants. They are convenient to take on and off. The better designs also stay put on your waist by a tab or hook so that if you ever have to draw the weapon, you don't also draw the holster with it.

    IWB holsters are generally much easier to conceal because the body of the holster is hidden under your pants. The position of the clips will affect how thick the holster system is. The clip on the holster is the least concealable as it adds the bulk of the clip to the bulk of the gun and holster. Newer models, especially the hybrids tend to have the belt clips/snaps on "wings" spreading them out on your belt allowing for a thinner profile and a more secure fit. REMEMBER to buy your pants at least a size bigger for an IWB to account for the girth of your rig.

    "Tuckable" holsters are IWB designs that allow you to tuck your shirt in between the clips and the holster body. They are excellent for very discreet carry but can be slow without practice.

    Shoulder holsters have a place and you have to dress around them. People w/ back or hip injuries precluding them from carrying on a belt find these to be an alternative. There was an old TV show, Barney Miller, where the old guy was the only one who wore a shoulder holster. He also had to go to the bathroom every 5 minutes or so.

    Pocket carry is what it sounds like. However you will want to keep it in a pocket holster so that nothing accidentally get in the trigger guard and discharges your weapon in close proximity to things you probably don't want to burn and put a hole in. Your guns are too big for pocket carry but it is an option for small light guns.

    "Clipgrips" are devices that attach a metal clip to your gun and they clip to your pants similar to an IWB. I know one person who swears by this. A lot of people don't like it because the gun shifts around on your waistband and many models require you to permanently mount part of the clip to your gun.

    Holsterless carry, or "Mexican carry" is when you just slip the gun into the top of your pants and pray it doesn't fall out (and maybe shoot yourself in the leg trying to grab it as it slides down your pants at a club).

    There are more but this gives you a basic rundown of what you need to research.

    YMMV
    Courage is endurance for one moment more…

    Hollowpoints might expand, but bullets won't shrink.
