I thought about the K.L Null Vamp model but that ...

Ask or PM retsupt99. He's a FIST lover and may be able to anwer your Q. He just posted in this section on a paddle holster question.
I've heard nothing but good about their holsters and the owner will work with you.

I don't have a FIST #42 but do have some other FIST holsters. They are excellent holsters with plenty of options available if you want. Customer service is top notch also. I agree that retsup99 is the resident expert on them so maybe he'll chime in on the #42 for you.

After using the Fist Crossdraw/Driving holster for a while I seem to be going to it more and more over other types of carry.
It is well concealed in either position and I can grip and draw my Walther P99 .40S&W from either very easily.
Well made and comfortable whether I am seated or standing.

Funny you should ask...
I have a ton of Fist holsters, my last purchase was the Fist #18 Paddle Holster, and the purchase before that one was the Fist #42 Driving Holster to Crossdraw for my Glock-36 (close enough).
The holster is well made, and easy to convert from one position to the other.
The crossdraw position is not something I would tend to do down here in FL under a T-shirt (but I certainly could, just not my carry style), but under a jacket it would be perfect.
For driving, the holster maintains a great draw for SD while buckled in...IMHO.
I'm about your same weight, but 'under tall'...
If you have more specific questions, PM me.

Thanks for the info retsupt99. Does the #18 conceal fairly well and is it comfortable in a sitting position. I am not concerned too much about printing as I have enough stuff surrounding my waist with cell phone and multi-tool anyway. I am more concerned about being able to lift up shirt and be able to draw quickly and safely without restrictions.
The only holster I would not be able to do is IWB, for the fact if I go with a bigger pant size, it will be too baggy.
I have limited funds and do not want to have a drawer full of holsters, instead would rather have a drawer full of guns instead.
Thanks for all of the info you can give me.

I'm a fan of the #42 for my M&P 9/40 compact. The holster conceals on my slight build under a heavy sport coat. It is in its element wearing it sitting in the car or even around the house.
As you know, the holster pivots to accommodate standing. The excellent construction keeps it firm in the position that the wearer chooses. Just remember to test pull the G27 mag after every holster adjustment.

I am so far well pleased with my #42. I really haven't used it yet as it just arrived by Fed Ex yesterday. I bought it for my SP101 and it appears to be up to the FIST usual standard of excellence. I'm accustomed to taking delivery from FIST in 5 weeks but this holster came in a little over 3 1/2 weeks. The FIST quality and customer sevice have always been to my liking.
