The answer: YES, you need a holster! You need it for the physical security of the gun, you need it for your own comfort, and you need it for safety (a proper holster covers all the operating controls of the gun, preventing discharge - think "Plaxico Burress").
Thugs and criminals stick guns in their waistbands. If you're concerned with appearances, you do not want to look like a thug or criminal.
