    Default Needing some holster advice

    Hey all

    So my application is in licensing at the moment so I need to start looking for a holster soon.

    My problem I'm facing is I'm not a thin oak. I have a boep that is getting bigger the more I diet and exercise and I have now come to accept that I have what some call a 'dad bod'.
    This in turn has lowered the amount of people I can chaff, but that's besides the point.

    Appendix carry is out of the question, my belt buckle grating my stomach is irritation enough, I'd hate to imagine the cheese grater of a grip on the CZ P10C sitting besides it.

    For the above reason I'm looking at carrying 4 o'clock but I have no idea what holster is most suitable and comfortable. I've been looking at an Army Ant General as it looks to be comfortable but I'm not sure.
    I've asked a few local shops but none seem interested in helping find a suitable holster so it would seem I'm stuck doing it the expensive route though trial and error.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have a P10C. I'll share my holster journey with you.

    A previously very active mod advised to start off carrying in a Comp-tac MTAC holster (I bought it from hailstorm). I carried 3 o'clock. Concealed well, reasonably comfortable for a newb carrier.

    I also got a Daniels IWB. It's slim and uncomplicated. I carried with it at 3 o'clock for a bit, before moving to AIWB. This is also the go to holster when pistol is not attached to my belt (trigger guard).

    I thought AIWB wasn't for me. But the black Friday promo at Quantum Carry a few years back made it worth a try. It was highly recommended and in hindsight was well worth the investment. Initially it was a challenge to get used to, but soon it became second nature, especially when you find the sweet spot of exactly where it "fits naturally".

    Regarding the "cheese grater" grip (one of the features I love about the P10C) wear a vest, tuck it between boepie and cheese grater.

    The holster journey is one you must take to find your best fit.

    I could not have asked for better advice.

    Thanks, I really appreciate, I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get both styles in 1 shot and carry them for a few days (once I get my FA of course) and work on carrying AIWB.

    The trick with carrying is to fit the whole setup to your body. Keepleft mentioned the sweet spot - it is necessary to tweak and move it all around until everything settles into place.

    Another thing to get used to at the start: one feels conscious! It feels like everyone will be spotting your firearm etc. Don't bother too much about that. Things will work out.
