A good IWB around $50?

I have a Kel-Tec P11 I need a IWB for. I have been using a clip draw for carry but summer is taking its toll. What do you folks recommend?

Google the "FIST" holster company.

Excellent products, Kydex or leather (I have both), and the price is reasonable.

Good Luck,

High Noon makes some inexpensive leather IWB, like the Mr Softy. I also like the Don Hume PCCH.

I have high noon "bare asset" holsters for all my carry pieces. I highly reccomend them. I often reach for them instead of my vastly more expensive custom rigs.

Don't have one, but a lot people like Kholster.

I carry my Kel-Tec P11 in a Supertuck. It is very comfortable. Broke it in within 3 days of wearing it. I did not get the combat cut, I think I may cut it myself later. The holster comes highly recommended. I think I got the first one made for the P-11. Mentioned I needed one for the P-11 on another forum and the owner of the company chimed in and said they could make one for me. Got it in 5 days. Holds my pistol with the perfect amount of tension.

Look at Bullard holsters. Very good quality for the money. Fast service.
IMO a step above Don Hume.

I just this week began carrying my Kel-Tec PF-9 using the belt clip. Up until now, I've used the Fist almost exclusively.

Have to add...I like the high noon's for their price 1st and foremost. That and I can just "grab and go." I don't like all the backing on a supertuck, but that's just me. The material is some kind of "pleather-like" material, but it isn't hot against my skin on days that I go with just a t shirt and no undershirt.

I'm very happy with the DeSantis Cozy Partner, it's around that price.

Don Hume makes an excellent clip-on IWB leather holster.

June 29, 2010, 04:56 PM
Some of those are really nice but the ones that I like are around $80, add shipping and they are reaching $90 to $100.

The "Don Hume PCCH" looks nice, but they do not list one for the P11. Anyone know what size I would need?

The "Bianchi 100 Professional" looks good as well. Anyone have experience with one of these?

If you can squeeze out an extra $15, You can't go wrong with this. (http://www.usgunleather.com/)

Kholsters work very well. They have a lot of adjustment so you can make it fit exactly how you want.

I highly recommend Blade-tech IWB kydex holsters with loop mountings.

I have a custom leather made for my P 11 from Dave @ Littlebear Holsters out of Jacksonville. IWB could not be more pleased. :)

i haven't seen the prices in a while, but look at blade-tech and you will be good to go, they make tough as nails gear.

I don't have one but, on forums such as this, members have mentioned they like this one.

Anyone know how the inside finish is on the Don Hume PCCH? Is it lined, smooth, rough or what? Looks like a great holster & I keep reading good reviews but no info on the inside finish. I'm getting my PT145 refinished & I wanna keep her looking good! :)

Welcome to thehighroad!

Check the website www.kholster.com They are a knock off product of the more expensive crossbreed holsters. I have 2 of the kholster that I am satisfied with. What I like about them , is that the holster is held by 2 clips back and forth that helps distribute the weight of the gun. You can also adjust it for cant. And it costs $1 less then your budget.

Good luck.

FIST makes good stuff: I use the #1AK (ultra thin kydex) very frequently

I have used the IWB Bianchi 100 professionals,..not bad, but it's not my favorite.

At the moment I have on an old IWB Bianchi model 3S Pistol Pocket that is holding a S&W Model 36 Chief with 3 inch barrel. I think Bianchi still has them available. I carried this handgun in this particular holser for several years,..rotating it and a Walther PP in ths same style holster. You can do hand stands and jumping jacks with it. Ymmv

Galco Stow n Go is good, and so is the Bianchi IWB as well, and both right around that range.

I also have a nylon Bulldog holster that works VERY well when worn IWB with my 3.5" 1911, but reholstering can be a pain. That one ran me $15 used.

i carry a j frame in a High Noon Mr. Softy iwb appendix. its thin for great concealment yet very durable and the clip they put on their holsters is outstanding. for less than $30, its hard to beat. you can get different versions like tuckable, or with a 15 deg. cant. Mr. Softy is a straight drop, great for appendix carry.
