Hello everyone - looking to get a few suggestions if you will be so kind...

Looking to get a comfortable conceal carry that I can rely on. Looking to carry in the small of my back, inside the waistband, based on my daily clothing choice. Looking to get a single stack for slim profile.

Any particular handgun you suggest me checking out? 9mm is the minimum caliber I want to carry.
Also, what particular type of IWB holster do you suggest? Since it will be with my daily, I want it to be very comfortable!

Thanks!

I am open to other carry location options, but for work, would need to keep it inside the waistband.

Shield in a Sticky Holster....most comfortable I've used by far. Mine feels great at 4-5 o'clock, I don't even take it out when I get in/out of the vehicle.

I usually carry a sig p238 (.380 auto) and if for some awful reason that wont work for one reason or another I carry a NAA .22 revolver. one of those "I guess its better than nothing" guns. I've been looking into a baby glock or M&P or maybe even one of the little springfield XD. From my limited experience on IWB carry is the holster is almost as important when it comes to the comfort side of things. To me the expensive leather styles end up being bigger and bulky compared to the cheaper fabric holsters.

George,

The easiest way is to go to a range that rents pistols and try one out that you think you will like. Often times shooters will buy a pistol and it turn out not at all what they "want". Try them and then make a decision. Holster wise, you will go through about 2-3 of them before you find the one you truly like. Buy several that fit the pistol you purchase.

I have carried a few, and the one I carry the most is my sig p938. Single stack, thin, 9mm, all the same functions as a 1911. I prefer to carry OWB in a el paso saddlery pancacke holster with my shirt untucked. I also carry in a desantis softuck at 3:00. carrying the softuck as I type as a matter of fact. But, as Chad said, every person is different on what they prefer to carry. See if you can shoot and handle as many as you can before settling on one to carry.

I really like my glock 43. Some people don't like glocks but they are really reliable and I can shoot it really well. Very easy to conceal. Best thing to do though is go to a range that rents them with a large selection and try them out.

It's different for everyone. Agree wholeheartedly with what Chad said. Go rent a few, and holster's will be trial and error until you decide what works best.

This is my fav for summertime carry. IWB Bladetech. Appendix.

I prefer an EAA Witness compact in .40 or 10mm. I use a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB on my side behind my side pocket. Tried an IWB rear carry but was not comfortable sitting.

Best advice, I'm a big fan of the Crossbreed Minituck and Supertuck holsters made with horsehide.

I carry a Kahr PM9 it's very comfortable.

Case and point on "you'll have to try a bunch of different holsters" I love my softuck. I suggested it to a friend, and he hated it.
