    Can anyone recommend a nice holster for conceald carry?? I want something that is comfortable, I move around alot in my place of business stocking this and that and blah blah, any help is much appreciated. Also, there is no way to prevent the finish of the gun from becoming tarnished because of constant taking out and putting back in the holster correct? At my local dealer they only have desaintis or something like that, for $60, didn't seem that great, oh well. Thanks again!

    I carry mine in a Wild Bills No Such Agency. It is extremly comfortable and very well crafted. But you are looking at a 4-5 month wait because of the number of agency folks who use the No Such Agency.

    I used to always carry in leather until an IPSC friend forced a Kydex on me. Now I'm practically an evangelist for the stuff.

    Let me suggest BearClaw Holsters at http://www.bearclawholsters.com ... totally first rate as far as kydex goes. His IWB's are easy to take on and off which is important as on occasion I do have to take it off :( I think very highly of Dan Hillsman http://www.hillsmanholsters.com (also kydex) though Dan's are a little more utilitarian ... BearClaw seems to have thought out the whole carry / concealment thing a little more than most.

    You mentioned the cheap DeSantis ... I actually have a leather Desantis that I sometimes use when I carry some of my larger glocks ... I kinda like it. You mentioned Wild Bills ... he has some good looking stuff if you want to go leather.

    Wear on the finish of your gun ... Kydex will pick a couple spots, will wear them quickly in a few weeks and will go no farther. Leather slowly wears all over, isn't as noticable at first, and never stops. Take ur pick. The most you can do is avoid hard plastic (falsely called kydex by mass producers) which is terrible on blued finish. My lowly opinion is that your Sig will have a practically impervious finish so no worries.

    Good luck and shoot safe.

    FYI: the address for Hillsman Holster Company is:
    http://www.hillsmanholster.com/

    Got one of those annoying "Let's try and trick the user and send them to our advertisers" pages with the other URL.
