Not asking for a specific pistol but in general. My LTC should be here soon so time to start shopping for a good comfortable holster. For summer Iíll probably carry smaller like maybe a Glock 43 but havenít decided 100% what pistol I plan to carry. Cooler months Iíll probably carry something bigger maybe even 1911. I donít consider myself a big guy and obviously itís going to be different for everyone. What are some good options to consider? Price isnít really a concern but comfort is. Also not positive how I will carry either but will be concealed.

It'll be trial and error for awhile. Finally found what works best for me, and that's IWB Kydex. Very comfortable. Love Bladetech holsters. Also have one East made for me. Very nice product.

I like a minimal belt slide type holster. Carry my Glock in a DeSantis... Galco makes good comfortable ones too...

Hate to tell you but holsters are like shoes. Just 'cus they look good on someone else and they swear by them does not mean that you will get the same results. This is part of the reason why we all have a drawer full of holsters that just did not work. Having said all that, my Springfield Utracompact .45 rides in a Crossbreed and my XD Subcompact rides in a Comp-Tac, use to be called the Minitar. Both are IWB, leather against the skin, Kydex around the weapon.

What Weegs said...I have went through dozens and dozens of holsters over the years, from cheapos to high end custom leather. What I like and use may not be your cup of tea. Currently using a couple of On Your Six kydex IWB and OWB that work pretty good for me. Always on the lookout for something better though...

I figure it will take a few to find whatís right but if I can eliminate a few to start off with that would be nice.

I know very few people that have tried a Milt Sparks and didn't like it. There's a reason they're more costly and take time to get.

Personally, I use JM Custom Kydex to carry a G19 all day every day. On the same note as above, not all holsters are created equal. They're a bit more money, but if you actually carry your gun all the time like you're supposed to, you'll find it's worth the investment.

First thing I would eliminate is anything non leather, leather form fit's over time and is far more comfortable. I'd also suggest not ordering anything on line if possible, you really need to try them on first. One more! Make sure it has a thumb strap.

Ditto on Tucker Gun Leather. The mini-iwb holster is great for the micro guns.

I have 3 crossbreeds that are really good. It all depends on what works best for you.
