I will see you there then.

Thanks for the suggestion. I should have clarified though... it's not really too tight on my gun. It's just so rigid it doesn't want to curve around the contour of my waist. I've started leaving a belt in it, overtight, overnight to see if that will soften it up.

May I suggest placing your firearm inside a heavy duty freezer zip lock bag, then put that bag inside another heavy duty freezer zip lock bag, then place into your leather holster for a week. At the end of that week, your holster will have adequate "break in" to be snug yet not have a vacuum lock effect.

Also, make sure you have a quality gun belt - and cinch that belt tight or you will have just enough play to not have a clean fast draw stroke. My belt is cinched TWO holes TIGHTER when i carry versus a "normal" feel.

Hope this helps.
Good info. I do have a good belt. It's a 511 tactical. That's a good idea about the freezer bags. At the moment I don't have another carry option though.

Re: Called out in church on my CC

God, this thread is relevant today, isn't it?

I carried into my church yesterday. I usually made a habit of leaving it in the car just because it's not very comfortable to carry - (at least with my IWB holster) for long periods of sitting down. But yesterday, it was haunting to realize I was carrying in my church right about the time the church in south Texas was being assaulted.

I wonder how much would have changed.
