Depends on the situation and season.

A Kimber Pro-Carry Stainless II in .45 ACP with two spare mags most of the time or a Taurus Ultra Lite Titanium stoked with Federal .38 Spl. +P when on the motorcycle or if concealment is more difficult.

Yes sir, I've been on the ropes about a IWB holster for a while. I got the Fobus because I was in a position where I had to take the whole rig off several times throughout the day to enter specific establishments. Now that that isn't as big of a deal, I've been looking around for holsters.

I know I want something solid leather, just haven't gotten around to actually finding one and purchasing it, being somewhat happy with my mouse gun.

If a paddle is a necessity, check out Kramer's MSP. http://www.kramerleather.com/productDetail.cfm?productID=18&categoryID=25

If you're after IWB, in addition to Kramer, check out Ken Null, Milt Sparks, Mitch Rosen, & if you can find one, Lou Alessi. There are other quality makers out there, but these take a back seat to no one. I have experience with all of them except Null--and people I respect & trust use his leather, so I wouldn't hesitate to do so, if the design suited me.

Regards,

David

Boy Howdie many on here carry some nice guns. Expensive one at that.
All I carry depends where I am going. If it is church I carry .22 Taurus PT22.
If we are just going out I usually take my K frame S&W .357 magnum.
If I am just running to the store I will throw a .22 Derringer in my pocket.

Depends on the level of concealability I need.

If I'm wearing shorts where I cannot carry IWB or somewhere I'd rather not be made like church, then it's the LCP in the front pocket in an UM pocket holster with the Pearce +2 magazine extension because 8 + 1 always beats 6 + 1.

Otherwise it's between the Taurus PT145 and the Springfield XD9sc. The Taurus is marginally lighter and easier to conceal but the Springfield offers 3 more rounds. If I'm going somewhere that it's likely to get bumped or scratch, like out in the field, then the Taurus is the easy answer. The Springfield is perfect for home defense with the 16 round mag - until I can get to the 12 ga.

I carry a Springfield Armory XD .40 4" service Stainless bi-tone in a DM Bullard Dual Carry holster. I also carry a Taurus PT 709 slim 9mm in a pocket holster in a front jeans or shorts pocket. The XD has a laserlyte rl-xd laser (rear sight laser) that does not snag or activate itself when the gun is holstered, on the front of the xd is a trijicon night sight. The taurus is just a plain jane pocket gun.
