concealable holster help

I'm getting my cwp in a couple weeks. i have a glock model 23 and a kahr k40. i need to get some concealable holsters. who carries these guns and what holsters do you use (links are appreciated). also, where do you find the best place to carry is? leg, small of the back, inside the pants on the side? any feedback regarding these two guns is welcome. Thanks

Which of your 2 do you plan to conceal? The glock 23 is a little bulky to completely conceal unless it's in the small of your back and unless you wear very baggy pants, it's not likely that the glock will be comfortable to carry on your ankle. I've had both the Fobus holster and the Bianchi locking holster (BOTH are bulkier than they look in the catalogs)

As for the Kahr, I think they make a special holster for it that fits in your pocket and conceals itself. I don't have a link to it readily avail though.

i like the Glock much more than the kahr, but the kahr is paper thin and much more concealable. the glock is a little bulky to hide easily, you're right about that. the reason i mention my ankle is because i wear boot cut jeans so i could hide a desert eagle down there and nobody would notice. i'll have to look into the kahr holsters. Thanks for the response

Try Uncle Mike's holsters, sorry dont have the link. They are great/simple but have zero retention. Also not sure if u are a L.E.O because that should determine where u carry

Its a good idea to carry where you practice to draw from. In an "oh sh%@" situation that is where u go to. Muscle memory! Good luck. Both guns, Kahr and Glock are great guns but I the Glock would get to heavy after a while.

yeah i get what you're saying. i figure small of hte back is good. pretty concealable and you can look like you're reaching for your wallet. i think the glock is more reliable but harder to carry

I agree, I carried a glock 27 for a while and depending on where I go I still will carry the Glock. But now I usually carry something very light.

what are your lighter options? i'm a huge fan of the titanium 44 special that S&W makes, very light, with stopping power to spare but the cylinder makes it kinda bulky

I carry the S&W titanium .357 5 shot. Its light, hammerless w/ knockout power. On the pricey side but a great gun. Kicks like a mule!

yeah, i use to have a snub nose .357 stainless. it kicked like a mule too and since your titanium is lighter i can imagine its even worse. if you shot all 6 shots as fast as you could it felt like someone hit your hand with a hammer. i haven't priced those in years, how much do they typically run?

hmmm.... maybe it was a S&W then. i know for a while i didn't buy S&W cause they were teh only company to cave in during the Clinton years so everyone i know boycotted them. maybe it was cheaper back then. oh well, i'd like to have one but that is high as hell. i have some friends in LEO, maybe they can get a good deal on one for me
