So what is everyone using for CCW. I just got a Kimber Ultra CDP and want a good high ride belt holster for it. Any one got a good idea?

You will get a hundred opinions, all good but I will say this....there will be one rig that will come up more than the others.....and that is the Alessi CQC/S. It is the perfect OWB and probably the most popular among high end holster buyers....

I carry my G26 90% of the time in a Comp-Tac CTAC. It is tuckable and comfortable. I wear a shirt and tie, so I need to be able to tuck. Works great.

The other 10% of the time that I carry my G26, I carry it in a Galco Ankle Glove. Also very comfortable, and works great.

I carry in an El Paso Saddelry Street Combat. Dearly love that holster. Check it out. Fast and secure.

A versatile holster with which I have had success is the FIST #43 Belt Slide IWB holster. It can be worn IWB or OWB and, in my experience, functions both ways quite well. Cost is less than $60.00 for a quality, versatile leather holster.

When I carry in the car for CCW I use a Galco Hidden Agenda. It is a functional day planner with a locking CCW section. I can get from car to hotel room with no one the wiser....

I like the Andrews Macdaniel II. I recently posted a review on THR. (http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=185867) For $70, it's one of the better custom leather products I've seen. I haven't seen very many, so take that with a grain of salt :)

+1 on the Andrews Custom Leather McDaniel IWB holster- good folks and great products.

I used to wear nothing but leather until I got a kydex IWB about a year ago. Really changed my mind as (for me, at least) it is much more comfortable because it takes up much less room.

I might exclude some of the cheap injection molded holsters by uncle mike and fobus ...:cool:

While it's not a high ride, I prefer the Milt Sparks VM-II.

Comp-Tac C-tac.
I have one for all 3 guns that I may carry. Best holster hands down!

That comp-tac looks good, except the kydex clips are butt. I like my single leather snap on the Macdaniel II. But it's not tuckable and nobody will ever see it anyway. :p

A tuckable Andrews would be nice.

I carry a Kimber Stainless Ultra Carry, in a Kirkpatrick Under Cover
Rig. Complete set has the belt, holster, and a double magazine pouch.
Very nicely done, with 'bout a 14 day delivery time. Affordable prices,
and just real nice people too do business with. Tell Rachel I sent you:D

I carry a CZ 75 P-01 in a custom made IWB holster by Eric Larsen of HBE Leatherworks, very comfortable!

If I had to pick a favorite OWB high ride CCW holster.... it'd be the Milt Sparks 60TK! :D

Sparks VM-II

Galco Mister Softy - when I don't tucky my shirt.

I have two of each (different sizes) which accomodate almost all of my handguns.
