    Feel like I'm slipping over to the dark side

    No, I didn't but a Glock.

    I've been carrying a few years but always IWB with Kydex holsters. Last week I picked up a leather OWB holster for my Para Commander and I am loving it. I'll still carry IWB a lot of the time depending on clothing but I see more OWB in the future. I've already ordered an OWB from Jim at Panther and I've ordered a leather for my PCR, we'll see what the future will bring.

    Here is the holster I bought for the Para, nothing fancy but I'm not much into spending a fortune on a holster.

    Oh that gun is cocked and locked, how dangerous, my my!

    So you just wear a nice loose fitting button up shirt with the OWB holsters now? I'm sure its a lot more comfortable, and easier to access and draw too.

    Excellent!

    I carry mostly OWB, with a tee shirt as a cover garment.

    Not really sig, that's the nice thing about the snaps, I took it off my belt and put back on without removing the gun from the holster. Hands never got near the trigger.

    I'll still carry IWB but this gives me some more options. Actually just ordered a holster for Alex Boriqua in Mesa, AZ, he is currently without a website hopefully that will soon be rectified but he does really nice work and has really reasonable prices.
    It will be a month or so but I'll post a pic when I get it. Mine will be on the plain side because that's what I like but he does some really nice basket weave as well as other designs. Actually I do have a couple of pics that I can add here. These are some pics he sent me so I could get an idea of some of the colors.

    That looks to be some really nice work!

    I donít care for that particular shield design though. Iíve had similar, and over time they tend to bend outward.

    The wider, more well boned ones work better for me.

    I always carry OWB, I find it much more comfortable and a lot quicker to bring into action. I had to put Talon Tape on my Shield 45, the stippling was to aggressive and without an undergarment on, it would feel like coarse sandpaper rubbing my side all day long, the Tape cured that.

    Yes, I always wear an undershirt even with a T-shirt. I prefer to carry owb, quick on and off with the firearm....buy t-shirts at least one size too big for proper cover.....wife gave me a waist band type holster last year......it REALLY hides the gun and its the only holster I carry with just one tee shirt as the gun doesn't touch the skin.....

    Now is it a requirement that you beat your wife if you wear that type of shirt??
