    Forum Newbie

    Hi All,
    I've been lurking for awhile, figured I needed to stop being lazy and complete the registration. I'm a lost hawaiian in Kansas.

    I've had a few problems selecting a carry weapon. Had a Ruger LCP wish was really easy to carry (unfortunately the slide stop popped off on the 34th day) Guy at the gunstore recommended a bersa when I returned the LCP. It went back in 3 days, couldn't get it to feed though an entire clip with out jamming in 400 rounds.

    So my wife (god love here) made me get a Kimber. Now it's a great gun has never jammed and is so much more accurate then the 380's I mention above. Problem is I stand 5'7" and weigh 168 pounds. I'm carrying the 4" Kimber in a fanny pack at the moment. Any recommendations on an IWB holster would be appreciated.

    Thank you Clyde

    Howdy from Texas...For the IWB, take a look at the Brommeland Max Con V from Brommeland Gunleather Concealed Carry Holsters at Coal Creek Armory - 865.966.4545
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Aloha from Georgia's SE coast and Welcome Aboard!

    A great IWB holster to start with is Comp-Tac's MTAC. It will do you and your Kimber justice.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
