IWB for summer carry
I am looking to get a holster for a CZ75 compact. In the summer I wear shorts and a tshirt, not tight, but not baggy, athletic fit is what they call it I think. Anyway, I am looking for something that will stay in place, but that will not print too much. I carry a Kahr CW9 in a high noon Bare Assets now which does a good job, but what would you recommend for a larger gun like the CZ. I am 6'2" 195.
I cannot get on with IWB but would always ask - how much do you sweat? :wink:
IMO if the answer is ''a lot'' then not so sure even with a sweat guard you'll be good with IWB.. if (IMO) cover garment - even just a t-shirt - is long enough then IWB is still viable if - size is big enough to ''hang'' and not conform to body.
Others may well have way different mileage!
I've said it a bunch but checkout www.crossbreedholsters.com . They are simple, light, very comfy, and fairly easy to afford. You can order them right online. I hid a full size 1911 under a T-shirt and I am 6'1" and 150lbs. I have one on the way for my new snubby and I can't wait.
Off subject but how do you like your CW9?

You may also want to check out C-Tac holsters.
I use a Comp tac (http://www.gunnersalley.com/product/COMPTACCTAC) it works great. I can tuck my shirt in if I want and with a good belt you can see it. It takes a little bit of time to find the best position but once you do it works great!
It's hard to beat a Gary Brommeland www.brommelandgunleather.com Max Con V holster. Whatever you choose, you will need a good belt. You have to dress to the gun.
Sweat you say, it does not het much worse that the high humidity and heat we get in the summer here on the Texas coastline.
Even though this holster is for the full size CZ75, I wear it and have a tshirt on between me and the holster. It works great and the tshirt prevents any sweat from getting to the holster. This is a Tucker Heratige and I have them one for several of my carry weapons.
