Default New to concealed carry

I just took my concealed carry class last week. I do alot of shooting and hunting, but this will be my first time carrying.

I'm not sure even how I want to carry. Possibly just something small on my ankle. Whatever I get, I want it compact and comfortable. I'm thinking about a Beretta PX4, Glock 27, etc. Must be real compact, high quality, with a good magazine capacity.

I'd also like to hear how most of ya'll are carrying. I don't think I would care for a shoulder holster, because I'm in the south and I rarely wear a jacket. I'm open to any ideas.

Thanks,
Jay

I was looking at the Supertuck holsters online. I like the idea, but I'm not sure how comfortable that would be. I'm constantly getting in and out of my truck with work, and don't want something digging into my side.

IWB arent as bad as they seem it just may take some time to find the right one. Some put the gun higher on the hip and some put the gun pretty low, some have cants and others dont. You just have to find out whats comfortable to you.

I don't like the idea of ankle holsters for primary carry. Mainly because if someone puts a knife to you and says give me your wallet, your not gonna be able to reach down in your ankle for your wallet. Much easier to reach back toward your wallet and grab your gun from your side. Just my .02

Glock 19 in a Comp-Tac C.T.A.C.

Although after trying my buddy's Galco Sky Ops, I'm fairly certain I'm going to be ordering one of those.

I carry my full sized Taurus .40, IWB. Sometimes I use a cheap clip on holster from Uncle Mikes, but mostly just wear a belt and stick it in my waistband!

i use a comp tac iwb. with a xd40sc. i carry on my strong side. right side 3 o clock. it is the most comfortable position i have found. i would stay away from the ankle holster. it takes to much time to get it out. i also went up one shirt size. and 2 part sizes to make every thing fit right.
