New Concealed Carry Holster

I know I shouldn't be carrying a firearm, whose caliber doesn't
start with a 4, but I do anyway. Just got a new Fobus Paddle
Holster, for my S&W/Walther PPK/S, .380 ACP. So far I like it fine,
I have tried inside waistband holsters, but they don't agree with
my body. In warm weather I carry a Ruger LCP, in right front pocket,
in a DeSantis pocket holster. The magazine pouch is a knife holster,
that I got from Smokey Mountain Knife Works for $ 3.99.

    Fobus holsters are OK for a basic holster...the ones I've had didn't stand up well to heavy use...

    It might not be a .44 or .45, but a .380 with good ammo is MUCH better than NO gun.

    Try some more IWBs. There's a reason the majority people who carry (non-pocket guns) use IWB holsters. I only use my paddle holster to get from my door to my truck on workdays - the rig gets stowed in the console after that. Other than that I'm carrying a full sized gun in a Crossbreed IWB with ease. In Florida I wear a t-shirt most of the year and a paddle rig won't get it done with my XD45.

    Part of the reason some folks don't like IWB is that they wear normal jeans with the holster. You need them to be 1-2 sizes large in the waist to accomodate that steel and leather. And get a good, longer belt.
    I'm just here for snark.
