    Pocket carry for my 380 summertime comfort. But to be clear you should not pocket carry without a pocket holster. Without one it leaves the trigger too open for accidental discharge when taking it out at the end of the day. A pocket holster also keeps the gun positioned the right way in your pocket.

    I didn't see OWB so I picked IWB. I'll be using both.

    PS -- I need a good gun belt. Any suggestions? I don't want to spend $200 but I guess I will if I have to. Can a good gun belt be had for under $100?

    CrossBreed IWB, ankle, and pocket. I do need to find a small of the back holster for my SP101.

    Crossbreed belts are around $60 a piece. Heard very good things about them. IIRC Hardballer also has belts for sale, don't remember the price.

    Edit: wow, didn't take long for everyone to answer at once<g>

    BTW, for holsters I have my Serpa OWB (3 - 3:30) and the Crossbreed Super Tuck Deluxe IWB (3:30 - 5 so not quite SOB).

    For the rare times I conceal I use a Supertuck for my Taurus 945 and the Uncle Mike's #12 ankle for my TCP .380. Both are comfortable and I can make both handguns disappear completely. But, I just OC most of the time with a Serpa CQC for my 945. Stainless, the ultimate fashion statement...

    I love my Galco Dress Belts. They are nice enough to be worn with slacks or a suit, but aren't so flashy as to look out of place with jeans. I wear them just about every day, and have even gotten compliments on them while not carrying. I have one in black & one in havana brown. They can be purchased here for $61.56 with free shipping:

    One other thought: If you do order from Optics Planet (or anywhere else for that matter) be sure to specify that they ship the belts loosely, not rolled up tightly.

    For the times when I'm not OCing...

    I often CC with my Tucker Texas Heritage IWB. However, sometimes I'll CC OWB in a Galco Concealable Belt Holster. It all depends where I'm going, what I'm wearing & what I'm doing that day.

    IMO, OWB should've been a choice as well.

    Crossbreed SuperTuck IWB for the XD40 subcompact. I need to try an IWB for my RIA 1911, just to have another option.

    For a belt, I bought an Amish handmade belt. $30 and it's a tank.

    None of the above. I always use my Black-hawk Serpa holster.

    Walmart usually stocks a good selection of Dickie's belts that are double stitched and have two prongs. I have one that's about 1 3/4" wide and it works nicely with either my IWB or my black hawk SERPA paddle mounted holster. They run about $12. Also, a good place to look would be anywhere work clothing is sold. Farm and fleet, Farm King, and western wear retailers. you may even find something in a military surplus store.

    Other "Duty" type belts are generally to wide/thick for casual attire and require keepers to attatch them to another belt and those can run a lot of coin.

    I've put ~50 rounds through it so far with no issues at all. I love how it fits in my hand, and how it shoots. So no, no complaints. If I wanted a second 1911 I'd buy another RIA in a heartbeat.

    How long have you had your belt, and is it holding up well?

    I bought a Dickie's belt (single prong, but otherwise felt quite sturdy) two years ago, but after less than a year of daily use I had to retire it - the belt was getting floppy and worn, some stitching was coming out, and the notch I used most often was getting pretty reamed out. That's when I gave up on the fake leather stuff and got the real leather Amish belt I linked earlier.

    +1, Kholster's awesome! I think the best part about them is that you get them natural and untreated. The customization is the fun part.

    i had to do the same with a dickies belt from walmart.. their good at first then get to flimsy, i just sucked it up and bought a good 5.11 Operator belt. its 1.75 inches wide and has a stiff insert so you can have a heavy gun and wont sag or flop
    but i CC with a crossbreed supertuck for my glock 22

    I carry appendix style but on the left side (I'm a lefty). I got a kholster style holster from a local guy, but I need to contact him because I have a few issues with it (I need the holster slightly canted to properly conceal the grip and the gun seems a bit loose in the holster compared to all of the models he had).

    EDIT: I forgot to post what I currently use. It's a Blackhawk IWB nylon holster. It's pretty comfortable, I just wish it had a better clip as I don't like how the plastic clip seems to bend a bit under the weight of my XDm (the plastic clip is fine with my wife's TCP).

    You may want to check out the Amish work belts for $26.00 at Hank's Clolthing. I own 3 and use them almost every day.Great for carrying a fairly heavy handgun.
