    Are you asking for suggestion on this gun (S&W BG .380), or in general on what works for CC?

    Yup, SmartCarry or an Inside the Waist Band holster from FIST.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Ditto on Appendix, it is a great place to carry short-barreled guns. Just about any of the clip models will work, and Remora is a great choice too.

    Like mentioned Appendix Carry works great for those small autos.
    Highly recommend Bear Creek Holsters. Doug can make you an iwb however you'd like it (ie. ride height, etc.)
    Very quick turnaround for custom maker, approx. 1 week.

    Holsterpro Holsterpro Gun Leather - Custom Hand Crafted in the U.S.A. Models:523 ($50), 55 ($55), 577 ($50). I spoke with the owner and he seems like a solid fellow who wants to make quality holsters at a reasonable price.

    I have Sig .380, I have a great locally made pocket holster which is my preferred method for that gun. However, I wear scrubs 5-6 days a week and most holsters are out (not a fan of ankle options). I have tried a few belly bands without luck but got a Kangaroo Carry underarm holster which seems to works great not only for the .380 but also my G26, the G19 is a bit large for the rig.
