My 2 cents worth!

Glock 27

Purchased a Fobus paddle holster (first) great holster for owb in the boonies carry - hardly ever wear it anymore.

Purchased a Remora G6-ART tuckable holster (second) great holster for iwb carry (just don't get the tuckable go with the other style) feels good, wears good most of the time but shifts and requires rearrangement for all day wear.

Purchased a Foxx Hybrid Holster put it on in the morning, wear it all day and take it off to go to bed. Hardly ever know it is there. It takes a couple of days to find the right adjustment and wear position but after that it fits like a glove. You will probably find this same comfort from any of the hybrid holster brands Galco, Crossbreed, Qzark, etc.

Don't over research it just get a hybrid iwb and enjoy it.

I have heard a lot of people here and on other forums praise the Remora IWB holster. I have one question, how do you re-holster???
Doesn't the top collapse when you pull your gun???

I carry my LCR .357 in a Bay Leather IWB Holster and my SR9c in a Comfort-Tuk IWB.

You can order it with a reinforced mouth that keeps it slightly open. if that is what you like. Practically speaking I don't care for that feature. I just as soon remove the holster from my waistband, reholster my pistol, and re insert. Practically speaking, you're not going to be drawing much in public so it's not an issue for me. The only downside is when training and you want to repeat draw often. That requires more time to reholster. But I like the trade off for the comfort and flexibility of a clipless holster with a soft opening.

I've recently run into this problem as well, Just started a job working in a university (they allow guns if I register it through the university police dept). Seeing that Universities are typical places for mass shootings I want to be prepared. Although, hopefully I wont need to be.

My problem with any waistband holster is that I have to have my shirt tucked in. So i was looking at something like this (Laying J Custom Leather - Home) maybe this is a type of holster you would be interested in for work too?

The policy at work is that you cannot carry weapon unless authorized to do so by management/owner.

Why should hard working honest people be caught off guard by some crazy A-hole who is mad at their GF/BF or just mad at life.
I have worked in manufacturing management most of my working life, and I have carried for as long as I can remember. I have had to pull my firearm three times in my life and every one was work related. When your at work and someone has your nose stuck into the barrel of a 12 gauge or a guy pulls a big ole Rambo knife, you really come to appreciate your carry piece.

Pretty cool you were able to do that though. I couldn't even have ammo delivered to where I work. You know how it goes.. Somebody has to sign. And nobody would be home yada yada.. Pain in the rear.

I have probably a half dozen of these holsters for different carry guns.
Buy your Galco Pocket Protector Inside the Pants Holster now for the lowest price at LAPoliceGear.com!

I've tried several other pocket holsters and I like these the best. On occasions I'll carry my G-27 in one of these holsters. My little Smith 442 lives in one.
I have never had one of them shift in my pocket.
I have never dealt with this "lapolicegear" so I can't say one way or another about their service.

1. Pray you never have to defend yourself and think/be aware to detect and avoid threats.
2. Train your mind to detect and avoid as much as you train the skills to defend yourself.
3. Always, when legal, "carry" because if we could know when it was coming, we would not be there!
Absolutely. Ain't going to do you any good sitting in your vehicle. Feel out your boss and get an exemption or authorization. Mine loves it and in waiting to take his CCW class now.

My Wife carries at work. She works in Law. Her offices handle Family Law & Criminal Law. On more than one occasion a wacked out soon to be ex has come in gunning for an attorney. Let's not even talk about some of the slime that slither in for criminal defense. You would be crazy NOT to carry.

For me it does. I only use it for quick runs to the store and whatnot, for all day carry there's much better options, IMO.

Great for a backup.. but IMHO never trust it as my primary gun location.while your bent kneeling and head down pulling up your pants I'll of reached back about 10" from where my hands normally rest grab my gun and fire while your still pulling up your pants leg.

I carried at work for 13 years, no one ever knew. As far as why would anyone need to. You carry for that moment that you will need it. You can't chose when some asshole threatens you life...I even carry in my bathrobe.....

Before I had my CPL I didn't think I'd carry all the time everywhere. But now I found that I do. I've collected a number of pistols and holsters to accommodate every situation of dress and now I always have my carry. Before I made that commitment I would think about the irony of needing my carry weapon during the moment I didn't have it. That thought bothered me and I have carried every day since then.
