Best holster for a Sig P232?

Anyone have any suggestions? I am looking for something fairly cheap (spent all my money on guns and ammo, ha ha). Also, I have a pretty small frame and wear moderately tight-fitting clothes (not so much in the winter though), so I want something that will offer maximum concealment. I'm thinking maybe one of those INSIDE the pants ones, though I'm not sure about comfort there...?

Thanks. :)

I carried a Walther PP for many years. It's about the same size and profile as the Sig 232. Carried it in either an Uncle Mike's IWB nylon holster or an ankle rig (also Unkle Mike's). Most of the nylon holsters from Unkle Mike's are inexpensive (like under $30) - and they are of good quality. In fact, I still have the old rigs that sometimes carry a small revolver. Under $40 for both and 20 years later, they still work fine.

These small pistols are very slim & compact, so comfortable concealment is typically pretty easy in a variety of modes. I'm assuming from your nickname that you are a lady - so why not just use a purse? Preferably something with a long strap you can drape over your neck and carry under an arm. There are some made with quick access pockets specifically for handgun carry. They tend to be a bit more pricy than an Unkle Mike's rig - but then you get something suitable for multiple purposes - with secure & quick access to the weapon - and no one is the wiser that you are carrying.

I've had very good luck with the Holsters from High Noon Holsters. I use his Mr. Softy for IWB and his Pocket Guard for my 230. I also like the Lou Alessi Pocket holster.

jar,

Very nice looking grips. Slicker and more compact looking than the stock rubber grips. What are they? Were did you get them? How much did they cost? Do they fit the P232's as well as the 230's?

I've got a 230. I use a Galco paddle or a Bianchi IWB. I've also used Uncle Mike's with good results,

They are Nils. Nils makes a wide variety of grips for the 232. These are a stipples, actually small raised bumps, very smooth and not sharp like some checking. They have worked very well even when my hand is wet. They also make smooth ones, ones with a thumb rest, and a host of different materials.
Here's a closer look at the stippling. (http://www.fototime.com/E642FAFED99C964/standard.jpg)
