Concealed carry holster

What concealed carry holster would you guys recommend (shoulder, waist,etc). What brand? What should I look for in a good holster?

I usually wear jeans and a T, what I currently use is a gun-belt-bag from final option but I want something more discrete. Something comfortable to wear for the whole day at the jobsite.

My pistol is a TaurusPT911 (9mm high cap, 4 inch barrel).

Thanks.

Agree with 9MX. Or you can get the cheaper Uncle mIke's IWB holster at Twin Pines.

It's not just the holster you should consider but the belt you intend to use it with. No matter how nicely constructed the holster is, if the belt is flimsy, it won't work well.

Your holster should allow full firing grip, covers the trigger guard, and allows one-handed reholstering (meaning it won't collapse close).

Your belt should fit snug with the belt loop of your jeans to minimize play.

Check these sites out:

www.thewilderness.com for belts

www.orcacustom.com for IWB Bodyguard holsters

The belts you can get here. I haven't seen a locally made IWB holster that's good enough. So i suggest you get a IWB holster from Comptac. The Gurkha model can easily conceal a G17 under a shirt. Order from them direct, www.comp-tac.com .

Agentrod, I suggest you get new pants instead. The dockers by Levi's are very good for casual wear. They also have generous pockets for that small PT911. No need for a concealed-carry holster. hehehe ;f

Wow thanks for the info guys. Didn't know there were a lot of designs out there for IWB. Looks like that is THE way to carry.

9MX,
think i will drop by those shops in Marikina.

Julianz, Batangueno
Nice holster designs from comp-tac, do they ship to the Phils direct?

Alexii, mc_oliver
Think I got new reasons to buy a new set of trousers and belt/s.


Keep those replies coming...thanks

Is there a parking space in front of Uncle Tony's shop? If not, where can you recommend that I leave my car while I go to the shop?

mc_o, I think you're referring to the PT111 (Taurus Millennium). While the PT911 is a compact, I don't think its small enough to fit inside a pants pocket. I could be wrong though... must buy new wardrobe.

Guys, I found this over at Kramer website. This might interest those who prefer leather holsters. Then again, it's a moot point if one uses a Glock.

What type of tanning is used in your leather?

KRAMER horsehide holsters are made with Bark tanned horsehide. Our cowhide holsters use vegetable tanned leather. The advantages of these tannages is that they provide a leather that will not cause your weapon to rust or corrode the way chrome tanned leather can do when the gun is left in it for extended periods of time. Chrome tanned leather is loaded with salts and chemicals that can destroy the finish on your gun. Want to know if a piece of leather is tanned using the chrome process? Simply cut a splinter size silver of leather and hold a flame to it. If the resultant fire has a greenish flame, the leather has been tanned using a chrome process.

HEHEHEHEHE.
THat's a bogus one. Baka pag tinanong mo si Tony kung may website na siya ang isagot sayo, " Pakita mo sakin ang catalog, igagawa kita".;f

Guys, kung mapadaan kayo kay Tony paki tanong kung may pattern na siya for XD.
