    Holster for the new guy

    Hello everyone. I will have my permit by the end of December (hopefully) and will be carrying a S&W .40 Sigma.

    Would like to get some 'stick & rudder' on holster options. Inside the waistband for a LH shooter.

    Hoping to hear from other LH shooters but all replies are welcomed and appreciated.

    I apologize in advance if this is a duplicate thread, performed a search and came up empty.

    Semper Fi!

    Look at the CrossBreed Supertuck, it's the best IWB holster out there.

    PS welcome to the forum.

    Ask 20 people and you'll get 20 opinions, I'm just another.

    I can say that I have over 3 dozen from these folks... HOLSTERS ...never had a bad one yet.

    If you want quality, economy, and quick delivery...

    I'm a Minotaur MTAC man myself. Also being a Floridian, I'd like to say how comfortable it is even in the heat. I conceal every day with an untucked t-shirt and shorts.

    I prefer kydex for IWB carry for a few reasons.

    One, kydex doesn't absorb sweat like leather does, this is important here in AZ. Two, kydex tends to stay open when a weapon is deployed allowing for an easier re-holster. three, the sweat shield on most kydex IWB holsters allows for an easier re-holster as well.

    My IWB holsters feature adjustable tension and cant. I prefer using hard loops over any clip for the stability.

    +1 I carry a Glock 19 in mine. Very comfortable. Just remember a good belt is equally as important as a good holster.

    I don't care for IWB , for OWB the best I have found is the Bianchi carryloc. Yes I have tried a lot of holsters in 14 years of CCing!!

    I have a few holsters for diffrent weapons and I have to reccommend Jeff at Boomstick Holsters. He is a nice guy, I had the chance to meet him on a trip to Missouri. He has built a few for me and he will work with you on anything you need. He is a little backlogged though, so you wiill have to wait for a quality piece of leather.

    If you are serious about carrying a concealed pistol, check out Rocky at Pure Kustom. He makes the last holster you will ever wear. You can spend $400 on a bunch of crap holsters that will sit in a box, or $200 on one that meets every need. Your choice!

    Got an email back from them saying they don't make one for the S&W Sigma .40

    I have full coverage for all my IWB and OWB holster for the 9/40VE.

    I even have The Slide OWB LH in stock for $60 plus $6 shipping. Check out my site and let me know if you have questions.
