    Which companies make the best concealment holsters? I have an HK P2000 and a Beretta Px4.

    Also, which handguns are the best for concealment? I have heard Glocks are, is this true?

    Any gun and any combination of holster has its pros and they all have their cons.

    The most important part of carrying concealed relates to what type of clothing you are wearing while carrying. In some clothes, I could carry a full size 12 gauge pump shotgun (that is, if it were legal to do so), in another scenario, I might have a hard time concealing the tiniest of pistols (like if I were in a really tight, skimpy bathing suit).

    However, if I were in a bathing suit like that, most people would want to look away, so I guess I could carry what I want!:confused::eek::uhoh:

    A great concealement holster in my opinion is the Crossbreed Supertuck.

    I carry a Glock in mine, and it conceals fine, but I don't know if they are really the best gun for concealment. There are smaller, more concealable guns out there, lots of them. But it will conceal, and it is reliable.

    I have a PX4 Storm F. If you have a good gunbelt, Beretta makes a very nice holster for the PX4. Actually, a good gunbelt is important for good concealment with any holster: a standard belt will stretch and sag - usually tilting the grip outwards where it becomes more noticeable.

    Fobus makes a decent paddle holster; you do need to adjust it just right and there's a little inward twist needed for the fastest presentation. However, I would recommend a good pancake-style holster. Lots of good companies and leatherworkers offer them. With a good belt, they are comfortable and keep the pistol close to the body. These even work under suit coats and sports jackets as do the Yaqui-style holsters.

    I would recommend a great deal of reading in the Handgun Holsters and Other Accessories sub-forum, and maybe digging through the Rate retail and private transactions forum. I've posted pictures of my comfortable carry rig* a few times and so have many other users.

    *(CrossBreed Supertuck holster, Tucker 2x IWB mag carrier, BeltMan belt and a Walther PPS or 3.5" 1911 as the mood suits me)

    You'll have to find your own compromises, at some point you're going to have to balance comfort, capacity, cost, caliber, concealment, and carry weight ... everyone's compromise comes out a bit different, the best advice is to not go cheap, you can buy 2-3 cheap holsters or a good holster once, the same goes for belts, get a real gunbelt, that thing you got at the department store isn't going to cut it in the long run.
