    New to cc - need OWB help

    Hello, everyone. I just received my permit in the mail, only waited about 5 weeks here in Florida. I was shocked it only took that long. Anyway, yesterday was my first day of carrying period, and I used a previously purchased IWB Baby Ghost from Bluegrass. It was fine, and got more comfortable throughout the day. But, I started thinking about OWB already. I wear my shirts untucked and with either pants or shorts to work. I think I would like to try a OWB holster that has a sweat shield or whatever it is technically called. Something along the lines of the Don Hume H721 OT. What else should I be looking at? Thanks for your suggestions. Carrying for the first time, didn't feel to strange. For moments at a time I did forget I had it on. I didn't even tell my wife I had it one until we got home after dinner!

    Thanks!

    The Don Hume is a good holster for the money. Here is my Springfield XD Sub Compact in mine.

    Welcome from Southern Illinois! The Don Hume is probably one of the best off the shelf holsters for the price. Just do a search on holsters and you'll get your full content on this site. :)

    Take a look at my The Slide. It is my most common model and one that conceals very well. I also generally have a very good stock of them so fast shipping for most common guns even lefties.

    Thanks for the responses. I have searched a ton, and I find a lot of good info on many OWB holsters. But not all have the sweat guard. I like the Concealable from Galco but it doesn't have the guard. I don't like wearing t-shirts as undergarments, its just too hot here!

    Welcome...

    from Central Florida!

    My last purchase...I've gone from all IWB to a very comfortable OWB for my Glock-36 and I'm very pleased with the comfort.

    Erik's a good guy. I've known of him, and communicated with him since he started. I'd recommend him in a second.

    I have been looking a lot at the Fist line of holsters because of reading man of your posts. I was looking at the #8, #9, and #12. What is your opinion on the close cropped versions? Also, do you think it necessary to add the "body protector' being in Florida yourself?

    Thanks!
