CC for a skinny guy.

Ok first of I am on the thin side 6ft and only 140lbs. My gun is a s&w 40 cal sigma. I know not the best cc weapon. Are there any good cc hosters that I could use? I want to start doing night calls for my job but some of the places we go almost require you to be armed. One tech just leaves his on the seat in the truck but I would like to have mine a little bit more accesable. Thanks

Sorry forgot to add that. I was wanting a iwb holster. I was just wanting to know if yall knew any that were any spicific holsters that are better for a skinny guy. Also Im left handed so the holster needs to be available in left hand and I would perfer somthing that is fairly stout. I dont have much of a butt so if the belt goes loose my pants fall down. I think that might be a bad thing if Im trying to defend myself.

I hope you have shot that gun a ton and trust your life to it! I had that same gun and it was traded off before I had more than 200 rounds of ammo through it. I went with a kahr arms cw40 for about the same price as the sigma and it is an awesome shooter. you loose about half the ammo capacity but a much more reliable firearm. more concealable and more accurate.

hope I helped.

I like the gun so far I put well over 500 rounds through it and it hasnt had any problems yet. All of the problems I have heard of have been on the V model not the newer VE that I have. Like I said I like the gun and it has showed me no reason not to trust it. So anyways does no one know any IWB holsters that would be good for a skinny guy? If not I guess Il just have to open carry I do live in Lousiana so its legal here. Thanks Mica

Have you looked at the Glacos or maybe even some of the custom work? If you are going to carry a gun, I think you need to spend the money on a good setup. A good gun belt is something that is one of the most important parts of a carry setup. I would start there. I have been carrying a grandfather oaks kydex holster for over 6 months now. It is nothing fancy but it works very well. It is thin and very light weight so it does not add much bulk. They make holsters for about any gun, and if they don't have it, they can make you one. I normally wear just leather, but this one has been great. They are around $30 so they wont break the bank either. Probably if you carry somewhere around 7:00, you will be able to conceal it easier.

This is my grandfather Oaks kydex.

+1 for Galco. MY brother has one (IWB) for his Glock 36, and he's about 135 and 5 ft 10 in tall

Thanks I will look into the galco holsters almost every thing I have found online has been fobus but they all look like they are very cheaply made. Im starting to think that I might just open carry and I kinda like the duty carry holsters. What do yall think of the Safariland 6280 SLS it looks nice and simple which is what I like. Also to the people who know more than me(everyone) I have held and shot both the v model and my ve but have never seen them side by side If it fits a V will it fit a VE they look the same so I think they will just want to be sure.

+1 I am 6'3 and 185 and this is where I must keep mine for concealment and comfort. If I put it at 3 or 9, I am hurting!

Note: Practice drawing from this position as it can be awkward. Do it with your normal clothing you would wear as well.

^^^ What he said. I would recommend getting almost any other gun than a Sigma to defend yourself. Keep in mind, this is the gun that the US government bought for the Iraqi police. They knew they might as well be arming the insurgents, so they bought the gun they most wanted to be shot at with. It is almost guaranteed to fail when you need it.

They might have changed some things with the VE version, but I still wouldn't trust it for my carry weapon.
