Congrats.

As far as carrying (I don't tote a beretta off duty) I keep my choice of the day in an IWB leather rig, just behind my right hip. My holsters are all high quality custom pieces and are VERY comfortable. Back when I wore cheaper holsters I'd put my pistol under the seat for long trips so the grip wasn't digging into my ribs or side.

I guess that kind of answers the holster question too...... go with quality, I won't even blink when paying $200-300 for a new holster anymore. You really do get what you pay for here, don't cheap out. Especially with a larger pistol like the M9, you need a well designed holster to efficiently distribute weight and conceal it. I tote my work piece around in a safari land thigh rig, it works, takes a while to get it "broke in" though.

Grips...... some guys I work with swear by Houge grips, some do the houge slip on deal, some wrap with different types of tape..... I never messed with the grips the factory put on the thing and I shoot just as well if not better than anyone I've shot with


Happy shooting

I don't know anyone who uses them, I've looked at them in shops before.

My personal preferance is for leather, and I like Inside the Waist Band, so those def. wouldn't work for me (and I won't go into my feelings on blackhawk).

They seem to be fairly well made though. May be a bit hard to conceal too. You will most likely have to wear a coat, loose over shirt, vest......

That's why I like the IWB with a 1911, I can conceal that with nothing but an untucked t-shirt (and I don't wear my clothes baggy either, I'm a Lg and I wear Lg.)

I do rock a G30 from time to time. Glocks are a little wide, not to bad though. I almost always have a 1911 though. The 3" models, or officer model, are a breeze to conceal. You can get them in almost any good defensive caliber you want, .45 being most common. The draw back is magazine capacity, only 7 usually. I do have a 9mm, 3" model that can carry 8 +1. compare that to a full size glock, say a G17 (9mm) you can pack 17. My G30 only carries 10. and the G26 you mentioned would be 10 also (with the standard mag)


Anyway, after all my rambling.......... I WOULD recommend the G26 (or any glock). I would also recommend a 1911 (I'm just in love with them).

Heres a link to the particular 1911 I talked about above
Kimber > 1911 Pistols > Aegis II > Ultra Aegis II™
Maybe you can fall in love too

The 92F is a full sized service weapon and not something I would want to carry IWB. Although I don't find IWB comfortable at all!! The serpa are good holsters, but they stick out to far for me. I like a retention holster if it designed right. The best I have found is the Bianchi Carry Loc. Check them out, excellent holster, and I too have a lot of custom leather, but I always go back to the Carryloc. I would stay away from the short 1911's they tend to have feeding issues, unless you get lucky, but I am not into 45 anyway. You can't beat the Glocks for CC. I prefer the compacts, the subs are to small for my hands. You see what works for me may be totally wrong for you, so we all have to find what works for you. I have been carrying for 14 years and am just now getting into IDPA with my son. I highly suggest checking it out to help build your SD skills.
