Hey all, so I recently purchased a Taurus 111 G2 for concealed carry and also purchased the Cloak Tuck leather holster from Alien Gear. I tried for about a week to figure out how to wear this with out it A:) Pulling my jeans to my ankles, no one wants that. B:) Not being super uncomfortable and having to tighten my belt up to the point of not breathing. Well no luck, the G2 was just too heavy for my build, I'm 5'10'' and 240lbs with a bit of a belly and no butt to speak of. I sold the g2 and have purchased a Sccy Cpx2 (Keltec PF9 is non-existent around here--No one has it, P11 was only found used) which I have to say I really love. Its lighter then the G2 by 6oz, smaller grip and has a flat mag plate, my only printing issue with the G2 was the pinky ext. on the mag that isnt replaceable (without modification anyway) Also got the Sccy for a really good price from what I gathered from local stores that sell them, usually go for 260-299 I got a brand new in the box one for 229.00 !!!!!!!!!!!!

I am returning the cloak tuck and I am trying to figure out what holster for the cpx would be best and something I could carry iwb for 8 hours a day, sitting, driving, and standing/walking. I have looked at concealment express holsters, N82, Galco tuck and go (have this for my lcp and its awesome, but tiny) another Galco leather that i dont recall the name of now, Desantis sof tuck, and possibly a Remora or Sticky holster. I have limited handgun experience for ccw and no holster knowledge. I did purchase a Cordura infused gun belt (Tagua) from my local store that is super rigid and holds up very well, I can hang 2 battery impact drivers on it and it doesnt sag or bend. So anyone out there got any suggestions and some help. My budget is around 40-50 for now and I prefer to carry at around 4:00, appendix just doesnt work for me, digs into my leg/thigh when i sit down.

Thanks all

I ended up ordering a rawdog defender holster, seems like a nice one and its minimal unlike the hybrid ones. I'll post back once I get it and give it a nice review

At the size and weight of the CPX-2, pretty much any single clip holster will work. You don't need a 2 clip hybrid for a gun that small. The Defender looks like a pretty good one.

You mentioned N82 holsters. Have you looked at their website? I have 2 N82 Professional holsters, one for my Glock 17 Gen 4 and one for my Glock 30 Gen 4 and I really like them. I wear them at 8 o'clock and they are comfortable for all day wear. Since they are single clip they are very easy and quick to put on - I just loosen my jeans and push the clip over my Bigfoot gun belt and everything is good. As several posters have already said a good gun belt is extremely important. I tried their new Tandem belt that has two clips but sent it back as I didn't like the extra width of the backing to accomodate both clips. Also the double clip holster was more difficult and time consuming to get on and off. The suede backing makes it extremely comfortable. I realize holsters are a very personal thing but you should really check into N82.
