I just got a belly band from The Well Armed Woman. My plan was to use it while running, but it's so comfortable. I can wear shorts and a polo shirt and not print at all. It doesn't move, and the band is actually comfortable. Just another option for you.

Well, one thing that we haven't seen a whole lot of is letting others know you have something that hasn't worked for you, but might for them - offer to sell it at an appropriate price for someone else to try without breaking the bank. That's how I've wound up with a couple of my holsters, on different forums (primarily the Walther forum where it's perfectly normal).

I think a holster exchange section would be a good way to try some different holsters, and get rid of the ones you don't want from the holster drawer.

Wait wait wait!

You mean I don't actually have to KEEP all the holsters I don't use?! Where's the fun in that? :lol:

I agree this is a good idea. My hubby and I needed a quick bit of cash so I thought, hm, I've got 2 holsters I don't need... I had a kydex iwb from the well armed woman and a leather iwb I made so I decided to try and sell them to the pawn shop. Guess how much they wanted to give me for each? $1. I know I need cash and I didn't expect much, but $1??? Needless to say I did not take that deal and have both holsters still.

I may be interested in the holsters. How much do you want for them?

I'm late to the party but for a pretty big selection of holsters to check out Collectors Firearms is one place that usually has a lot.

It is for appendix carry and does NOT require a belt....in fact when I'm wearing a belt, the clip goes under the belt. It's made of very thin leather and the clip is offset so as to minimize the thickness of the package.

BTW, I also got a Remora for the Sig when they had their sale on. I don't really care for it IWB, especially when sitting.

I don't know how it will fit the female shape, but I'm a kinda skinny guy and it works well for me. I'm in Austin and expect to have my new APX within a couple of weeks.

Best of luck.

I did receive the Alessi APX. I ended up exchanging it for an Alessi Talon Plus. The APX doesn't cover the hammer and safety area, but the Talon does. I like the Talon much better for the SIG.

Also, I purchased a Sticky from a forum member. It is kinda like the Remora, but slightly smaller so it is more comfortable. In addition, the Sticky is "less sticky" inside making the draw and reholster easier.
