    Who uses Kydex?

    I use Kydex for IDPA,but never thought about it for carry.....the other day I saw a Kydex j frame holster,and was considering it.I find alot of the carry holsters are "high ride" and don't work for me.the Kydex seem to ride a little lower.Just wondering about concealability......I like the security and weight of a Kydex holster..so who uses one on a daily basis,and what kind is it and what do you carry?
    thanks

    Many of us here do use kydex. Serpa, C TAC , or other brands. I use holsters I have hand made or a Serpa from Blackhawk.

    I love my BLADE-TECH so much I rarely even use leather holsters for ccw. I saw Sam Andrews at the gun show last Saturday and told him that. lol I own FIVE of his holsters, too. My Kydex (Blade Tech) holsters (ALL IWB) are so comfortable, I have been known to fall asleep in my "DAD'S CHAIR" LAZY BOY while wearing a full size 45ACP. The only holster I carry regularly that's NOT Kydex is my pocket holster from Mikla.

    My preference for CC is Kydex.

    I carry a Sig 239 in a Comp-Tac IWB. Just switched from a Gurkha to a C-Tac - both are very comfortable. I also carry a Sig 229 in a Comp-Tac paddle OWB.

    I have a Milt Sparks 55BN OWB and wear it occasionally, but really prefer Kydex.

    My EDC holster is a Comp-Tac C-T.A.C. It's an excellent kydex holster, very comfortable and adjustable. Comp-Tac's got great customer service too.

    I carry a Glock 23 in a DeSantis Scorpion IWB holster normally with nothing more than a t-shirt as a cover garment. It's comfortable and easy on and off. I also carry with a Blackhawk Serpa, but I find that I normally have to wear a light jacket to conceal it.

    I have an OWB Kydex holster that's not necessarily for carrying concealed. It's a drop, belt holster with a speed cut and an extension to correct the female hip vs waist ratio.

    I LOVE THAT HOLSTER!

    If I could open carry every day I would do it. It's so comfortable and SOOO easy to draw from yet study and custom fit.

    I've been trying for DAYS to find just ONE outfit that would conceal it well without it hanging out from under my shirts. It's not the bulge that gets me it's the length of the drop.

    I'll find it someday because I WILL wear that holster, darn it.

    I can wear it with my longer sweaters but now is not the season for long sweaters. I'll probably use it for carry in the winter though.

    I don't think I'd use a Kydex holster for IWB.. That would get too uncomfortable, but if I got the same holster that wasn't a drop holster I'd use it for sure!

    Great for concealment, but she might have a little trouble clearing the cover garment.

    I think that would be the least of my problems. I'd get REALLY good at shooting in the dark because how in the WORLD would you be able to see anything in that?!?!

    And imagine how many places a gun would have to hang up on the clothing.. YIKES!
