Congrats! I carry in SG holsters (Kahr PM9 and Kimber Ultra Carry). I bet you’ll like it. Very comfortable.

I figure I’m concealed if it doesn’t look like a gun. The little Kahr disappears. The Kimber’s grip is full size, and there might be times it influences the shape of my shirt. Nobody notices.
Which one do you have? I'm getting the revolution over the ventcore just because I think the padded material of the ventcore might get gross and smell bad since I tend to sweat a bit. Especially after working 10hrs in non breathable clothing at the chemical plants. Or if I'm working outside at the house or otherwise.
Mine are Ventcore. I would expect the Revolution units are every bit as well built

:thumbs2:
Good to hear, I have heard nothing but stellar reviews of SG holsters, so I figure I would start there and try to avoid having too large a collection of holsters stowed away in a drawer.

Before you know it it’ll be a part of your daily routine and you won’t think twice about it.

I'm not sure if it's "purpose built" but I bought a 5.11 "operator" belt. It's 1.75in wide and stiffer than.... Well it's pretty damn sturdy. I wore it just regular for a week before my license got here, and it has held up pretty good so far with my single clip holster, should do even better with my stealth gear that distributes the weight a little better.

First full day of carrying

I got my license out of the mail yesterday after I got home from work, so I decided it was a good time to go out for a walk around a few places. I despise Wal-Mart and refuse to go most of the time. I did however go to academy, Cabelas, and kroger.


I'm still waiting on my stealthgear holster to show up, so I'm currently carrying my m&p 9c in a galco tuck-n-go throw down IWB holster for now. It's not as terrible of a holster as I thought, though it's a little uncomfortable since it doesn't stop the back of the slide from sticking in my side from time to time. I'll put up with it for now, until my revolution gets here.

So today was my first FULL day of carrying all day and I ended up at Wal-Mart bc it was close and I needed 1 item lol. All in all everything went smoothly, my gun doesn't print much if at all even while wearing jeans and undershirt, and t-shirt. I was a little concerned when I bent over for whatever reason and fought the urge to adjust the holster or pull on my shirt.

Hopefully my SG holster will alleviate the issue with my firearm stabbing me, and I didn't realize until today how badly I needed new clothes lol.
