re: How many of you actually CC everyday?


I read good reviews on this 3 in 1 holster and the price is right. Think I might order this one unless any of you have any bad experience with a Remora.

Mr. Langston:

I am presuming from some of your queries that you haven't yet sought out any handgun training, or taken a Concealed Handgun Permit class.

This is a good investment for anyone who thinks they might have to use a handgun for self-defense, and are especially worthwhile for someone with your level of experience.

A good CCW class will//should get you headed in the right direction for choosing weapons and holsters.

A good defensive handgun course (two-day or three-day, immersion level class) will make sure you're on the right track because they will impose requirements for guns and holsters (or more accurately, will exclude certain types of guns and holsters) that students can bring to the class.

I suggest that you get some quality training before you start carrying a gun. Check out the "Training" forum at bayoushooter.com for some options.

re: How many of you actually CC everyday?


Actually I have sought out training but I appreciate your advice. I'm signed up for the next class here and I would never conceal carry without the license. I am excited about my new gun and just asking other opinions before I spend money on certain things. Im very fimiliar with guns, just not many handguns. I only have two and have never looked at the compact guns or carrying. I'm hooked Though and ready to buy another.
The one I bough yesterday was bought from the instructor and he helped a lot with my decision. That's good advice.

Langston,
I've got a Remora IWB holster I use to cc a 3 1/2" 1911. My gun is obviously to big to pocket carry, but I think the Remora should be a good holster for pocket carry. Ankle carry is a highly individualized thing. Personally, none of the folks who I know that started off using ankle carry continued it. My style Remora doesn't work well as a "tuckable" holster, although Remora does now have a "tuckable" holster.

Depending on your situation, you may want a holster that is tuckable. There are a bunch of tuckable holsters on the market. I've very pleased w/ my two, a "Lone Wolf-T" from here http://woolfegunleather.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3_1&products_id=8 and a "Tuck Clip" from here http://www.sideguardholsters.com/holsters/IWB_Holsters.htm

For a small, light gun like the LC-9, you might want to consider a single clip holster like the "Tuck Clip." Woolfe also makes a single clip holster called the "Wolf-Bite". The single clip holster is as stable as a double clip, but more convenient and easier to put on.

Here's my "Tuck Clip" w/ my Kahr CW45.

another very comfortable holster is the N82Tactical (pronounced Nate Squared tactical). I regularly carry my G19 in it and find it more comfortable than Cross Breed

Thanks fellas. I will look into them. I like the Blackhawks pocket I have but was just looking for over options not looking for an ankle carry. That's just what was recommended. And sometimes it's not always best to trust the salesmen. Appreciate y'alls advice. I will look into them.

Kahr PM9 for $550 used?
Seems like a good deal. Any thoughts from you guys on the pros/cons on the Polygonal Rifling Barrel in the PM9 vs. Standard Rifling in the CM9?

You can get a brand new CM9 for about $400. I have one with nearly 5000k+ rounds through it.

Besides it being easier to clean, there is no real advantage. There may be an accuracy advantage if the barrel were longer, but the barrel is only 3 inches.

Interesting, I may look into these, although I think I will be more than happy with my Crossbreed

re: How many of you actually CC everyday?


I carry pretty much all day everyday. I don't go to many places that don't allow it. I use an ankle holster most of the time cause sitting in a tractor with my lc9 in my waistband can get uncomfortable. I have a keltech .380 that isn't too bad but i haven't carried it in a while.
