Default Whats your favorite CCW holster?

Was having this convo with @Lead Pipe the other day... and got to wondering about how my own holsters stacked against other people's holsters.

I currently carry either a G43 or a G19.

For the G43, I use a simple kydex holster for IWB carry, very similar to this:



I find it to be super comfortable, almost like its not even there. Driving, walking around, sitting around, whatever. It is a great little IWB holster.

I had a larger kydex setup for the G19, but found it to be a bit uncomfortable... so I ordered up and just received my Aliengear 3.0 holster.



I wore it around a bit last night and found it was really comfortable while standing. But after driving and then sitting around with it a bit, I found it to be a bit uncomfortable as it wrapped around my back. Not sure exactly where on the harness or the gun itself was touching me, but I'll need to find it, else I won't be using it for long.

Speaking of long I find the cloak 3.0 to be a very long holster setup. It wraps around my back when carrying at 3 o'clock. So when you sit, you end up with the rear-most clip behind your back causing pressure between the object you're sitting on and your back. That's no fun.

So now I'm curious. What do you guys use and whats your opinion?

It depends on what I'm carrying. I prefer IWB because its easiest for me to draw from. I carry my sig p238 IWB with a sticky holster. For my M&P 9c, I carry IWB with an Alien Gear cloak tuck 2.0.

I find drawing from the pocket to be very difficult. I've got 2 buddies that do it... 1 I can see it plan as day, 2 it's just not a fluid motion

I'm always amazed at pocket carries. Now using a sticky holster for IWB... That's almost even more perplexing.
@LikeABauce302 - how's that sticky holster for IWB? You carry deep with that?

Like my Remora? You'd be amazed dude.. I love it. It goes nowhere. I rip my quad around standing up and down and leaning hard and I've never lost a gun yet

It works fine for me. It doesn't move. I've even tucked it into the waistband of basketball shorts when I'm taking my dogs for a walk at night. I was skeptical about using it at first too, but it works great.

Probably 50/50 between IWB kydex with Shield (wearing jeans) and pocket holster with P238 (dressed nicer, wearing basketball shorts, etc). The sticky holsters have grown on me...carried the Shield with one the other day and had no issues and you hardly feel it there.

Even if you find that you don't like it, they can be used for other things. They tuck nicely in between the seat and center console of a car.
