    Ok...I just cannot get into IWB holsters. I have a GP100 and a Stoeger Cougar (large 15 round butt/grip) that I'd like to carry OWB...under a sweatshirt or sweater. My present holsters...good ones too, just do not conceal when I squat down or sit down, etc.

    I was seriously considering a well made High Rise holster like Rusty Sherricks.

    Here is an example of Rusty Sherricks High Ride for a G26 I found on the internet:

    I have a "reinforced" Beltman Belt ...also a nice High Noon Belt. Both are quality belts.

    I want feedback on others who have had experience with High Ride holsters please.

    I like my Galco High Rider for a S&W 3" model 10

    Best method of CC I have found. Can't do IWB. If your dress allows shoulder carry, that's also convenient. Search for "Shado" they have a nice affordable clamshell type, also Don Hume's 721, and the Glaco FLETCH.

    Ain't this why we live in the USA? Life is all about choices. Choose yer weapon, choose yer ammo, choose yer rig... I might choose to leave the house with a compact .45 one day, or a full-size 1911, a 9mm or maybe a .38 snubby.

    I have some IWB, some hi-rise, couple of shoulder rigs. Purists and / or others rail or preach about having one standard setup, so your muscle memory born of practice will save you when seconds count.

    But for those of us in a non-LEO capacity, I believe options allow appropriate dress for the season / weather, with concealment and local ordinance compliance high in priority. Situational awareness, IMO a prerequisite for carry, should preclude most if not all "split-second" scenarios. That said, I do believe we should be comfortable and proficient with whatever we carry, however we carry it. That's why we all practice, right?

    I like the Fletch also, as southern summers are tough for me wearing IWB. Easy to wear, easy access with a loose shirt, un-tucked. I can sweat with the best of y'all.

    I have em for 1911, Glock compact, and j frame snubbies.

    I can tolerate the Bianchi Blackwidow for the J-Frame only. The weight of the heavier guns are too far above my waistline for comfort/confidence.

    Pancake holster is my preferred way to conceal OWB. 3/4 seasons of the year I carry IWB, however.
