    Wife just picked up a HK P30SK in 9mm. I sure am impressed. She has both thumb joints replaced and has no real grip. This gun is so smooth and easy to operate. We have high expecations that this will her gun forever. Pictures and report to follow. Jim

    Not sure what exactly you want, whether it be kydex or hybrid or leather. The web site below is exclusively hybrid. He makes all the backing from horsehide. No cow leather involved in his work.

    They are much more comfortable to wear IMHO.

    The guy is a disabled veteran too. Great to deal with.

    Thanks for the link. The first thing I noticed was he caters to left-handers. Unless you are left handed, you don't even think about how many holsters are only available in right hand. I have him bookmarked.

    Thanks for the tip on stickwireholsters, I'll give him a try, as far as CCW I find with a smaller lighter handgun you're more apt to carry on more of a regular basis with that I have a KelTec.380 I carry in my pocket and sometimes switch out to a S&W 442 or a Ruger LC9s depending where I'm going.....

    Good pick. I've got one myself. Believe it or not, unless I'm dressed up and shirt is tucked, I carry a Glock 21 (.45 ACP). Heavy big gun, but where I'm a little on the fluffy side, it just kinda just disappears. The recoil isn't much different between the two either. Both are tack drivers.

    He will definitely make left handed holster if you want them. But why be wrong-handed all the time.

    I hope you're able to get ahold of him.

    He's been having a lot of pain lately resulting from injuries he suffered while overseas. What he makes is just as good as the big name guys at a lot lower price.

    I re-read my post and got off track ,what I was meaning to say was it's better to always better to have a smaller pocket gun on your person than trying to conceal a larger one..especially when you hit the warmer months .I can drop that KelTec .380 in the pocket of my jogging shorts and it's not heavy enough to make them droop,where with a larger handgun you might forgo scarring it due to it's inconvenient .......and that willl be the time you need it! Accuracy , Speed & Control over Caliber

    Depends where I'm riding. If I'm riding in an area with a lot of carjacking (monthly trips to SC) I carry a Judge Public Defender loaded with 410 PDX ammo. If I'm on a long haul in more civilized states, I carry a SW MP Shield 40. But, I'm thinking about buying a SW MP Bodyguard 380 as a backup carry gun too.

    Default Best carry caliber.

    I normally carry a Glock 23. which is a 40 S&W. It's not a small pistol but it is manageable. If you buy a quality holster, you can carry the Glock or any gun for that matter, all day long and forget it's even there. I use a Milt Sparks holster. Pricey, but well worth it. I also carry a Ruger LCP. Very small and light weight. But mostly the 40 S&W.
