    New here from Iowa

    I am somewhat new to concealed carry. I have usually carried in the console of a vehicle or in a jacket pocket but would like to get into holsters that I can carry every day despite the weather. I do a lot of sitting as part of my job and I am looking at carrying a J-Frame regularly. I don't want to buy a ton of holsters before finding out what works best. I am open to suggestions.

    Buying a holster is akin to bying underwear: It has to fit comfortably, and I (You) have to like it.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    You'll more than likely end up like the rest of us. You'll wind up with a drawer full of holsters despite all your good intentions. The trick of this exercise is to fill them all up at the same time, lol.

    I wear business casual. Polo and Khaki pants most days. Casual Fridays are Jeans and a nice shirt.
