Haha. Yeah. . .Not doing bets on this one.

In other news. . .From a LEO Via FB messenger-> "Just saw one of your holsters in an officer safety update. Boston chased a guy down using a chest holster (not one of yours) and used yours as an example of what's out there.
. . . . .This picture"

All advertising is good advertising right?

Thumbs up NoChai

Reeeaaalllly (!) need to shout out to a SOCNET member for sending me that Slide with RMR attached.


That brought me up from this
......vvvvvv......


to this. . . .
.....vvvvv.....



So in other words now I can Shroud the RMR within the Kydex.

May not be a big deal, until it is.

Being able to make that RMR mold instead of having to buy one And having to have a slide for it to fit onto saved me money.

Money that's busy being used for all sorts of other things post relocation here in Coastal [Flood Zone] GA.

So far I've used it for 2 IWB's, and 3 Chesty's besides your order too.

So, thank you NoChai!

I still need to go with one of these - still rocking the FAM recommended Survival Sheath one from 10+ years ago. What model/options are most using for basic Joe concealed carry?

Need more info to answer...what kind of weapon, where have you been carrying it, do you use a belt, do you usually wear extra garments to help you conceal, do you want to be able to take the holster off without pulling your belt, etc, etc. Not important what most are using, it's what you will use!

Very true. I tried listening to all the "experts" and reviews in the beginning and found out that appendix carry just isn't for me.

Then went with IWB exclusively because "duh, common sense".. can't hide a gun any other way, right?

Now I carry in one of LP's OWB pancakes because it's what works for me. Some shirts I can't wear because they're too tight (I'm too fat?) and the system prints but most cover it great.

I'd say that OWB is what works for me and is a very simple, cost effective and safe way to carry. And if you've got beach body muscles and need to show them off with your extra smedium shirt just throw an unbuttoned button down shirt over it. Problem solved.

I was a OWB guy for many years, then went to AIWB 2 years ago. I’m tall, medium build (6’7” 230 lubs), so I can get away with AIWB with full-size weapons (G20, 5” 1911s). Smaller guys, or guys with a Dunlop have a harder time with AIWB.

You Want the Litepath since I know you're talkin' bout the Chest Rig.

The Litepath Muzzle-up is your Concealed Carry easiest to hide.

And Bonus: You can even do backflips on a Dance Floor without it unholstering itself.

Question Yes/No?

Thinking of giving the AR Mag Pouch another go. This time on the same base as my Pancake.

Yes/No/Punt?

I've got several different belt-mounted kydex AR mag holders, and have never quite warmed to the idea. A "niche" thing, in my book.

It probably is. I made it on a custom request. This time just using my pancake base, add mags and stir.

Didn't go overboard with the tensioners, which is my custom. simple-single tensioner right in the middle works well.

This thing will conceal, which is nice.
