    Anyone own a 228/229 can recommend a good concealed holster? I'd also be willing to buy a used one that is no longer in service from another forum member.
    Thanks.

    My SIG 229 is my OC handgun. It is a lot of gun to conceal. How do you plan on concealing? IWB , shoulder holster, OWB with jacket, ankle holster (Not sure if ankle holster exists for SIG 229 as I have never seen one.)

    Check out this web site.

    Also do a search for master holster list on this site and you might find what you need.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I bought Blackhawk SERPA holster for my P228 with the plan to get the shoulder holster platform for it in the future, and in the meantime I use that holster on my hip.

    I have not yet found the "perfect" IWB holster. In the meantime, while I pursue that quest, I purchased a $10 Bulldog nylon holster that I can carry IWB, or OWB between my belt and waistband depending on what I am wearing. It is not ideal, but it actually works pretty well. Biggest downside to me is re-holstering and lack of sweatguard. If I had to take unholster/reholster my pistol a lot during the day I would not use it. So for short term until you find what you really want, that is an option.

    For some suggestions:
    I hear Crossbreed very much praised for functionality, comfort, quality and warranty (although it does take some time to get your holster) : http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/index.html

    Here's a "Guide" to CC holsters. I found the information worth reviewing:

    Some forum threads with good holster info and links:

    I triedone of the cheap IWB holsters from Cheaper than Dirt. Didn't like the carry, it was a lot of gun to have there. Uncomfortable when sitting down. If you must conceal it I would use a shoulder rig. That worked well for me when wearing a coat. Not practical for the summer, IMHO.
