    I hate IWB carry. Have not yet found a holster that is comfortable without buying new shorts and pants that are two inches larger then I would normally wear, and then they are too baggy. I live in Florida and wear cargo shorts or pants most of the time. Bob Mika is making me a pocket holster for my P99c, which will enable me to comfortably carry it in cargo shorts or pants. I have also found that I can pocket carry with no problem in regular docker pants.

    If anyone has a suggestion for an IWB holster for a P99c that they find comfortable, I would appreciate hearing about it. Thanks.

    Holster for P99c

    Hi,

    I kinda like DeSantis, Steath and Tuck this. They are both nylon IWB and has a mag holder all in one. Steath does require a shirt or jacket to cover. Tuck this, allows a shirt to be tucked into it for a more concealed.

    I believe generally, one knows that IWB does require a pants to be a size or two larger. I've tried OWB and not too keen with it. Movement is more restricted, due to the worries that people might notice it. Can't reach up too much or twist and some people can see the out line of the gun. With IWB, I feel the pistol closer to me and move more naturally. But to some, that might be uncomforable. I read somewhere once that some times, to conceal carry, it might not be comfortable, but it is comforting.

    And for carrying, I have both the full size and the compact P99 9mm. The compact is less noticeable than the full in an IWB or OWB. But it doesn't make a difference on a shoulder holster. Thanks for listening.

    Good Luck and Good Shooting

    In case you haven't seen them, you might look at the Uncle Mike's IWB holsters that run about $13-$15. They are made of a soft and thin material that is fuzzy on the outside and smooth on the inside. They weigh just a few ounces and add only a few mm to the thickness of the weapon. The side against the body is higher, shielding your skin. I believe that the material will also prevent sweat from reaching the weapon.

    I decided to try one for my baby Glock, and I was quite surprised at how comfortable it is. I purchased mine at the local Gander Mountain. I was impressed enough to get a second one for my Seecamp.

    So when you guys carry your P99 compact IWB, do you have to go up a size in pants? According to Walther's website, the P99C is 1.3" thick, which is thicker than a Glock 19 and a Sig P239. I'm concerned that I may have to buy a new wardrobe.

    Since I live in the sweaty South, my firearm changes with the seasons. We are getting into Seecamp Season here as we head into July. By the fall I'll be back into my P99 compact and then with sweater season I'll carry the full size. By then I'll have a Tucker Gunleather "The Answer" holster and will be perfectly set again until March or April.

    I hate hot weather. Now that I think about it, maybe I need some shorts with cargo pockets big enough to put that compact in.... hmmmm. The .380 Seecamp is nice, but the range is pretty doggone limited.

    Yea, I heard about that - but if U look around hard enough online and have your shop call enough distributors AND U check large gun shows, U might find one.

    I've only been carrying a P99 for a few months. It looks as though I'll carry the P99c 9mm in the hotter months and a full size SW99 .40 in colder months. So I didn't vote because I'll be carrying both.

    Just a quick update on the holster issue. I found an IWB holster for my P99c that I find to be quite comfortable. The Fist Kydex tuckable made by them from very thin Kydex. If you don't mind Kydex, this is a very thin, comfortable holster, and you can actually tuck your shirt. The holster adds very little width so you don't have to increase your pants size for it to work.

    I have found Crossbreed holsters IWB to be the most comfortable but with any IWB you need to wear pants that are larger because you need room to fit the holster in. Mark at Crossbreed offers a 2 week trial period and a lifetime warranty on his holsters and they are reasonably priced and you don't have to wait several months for the holster.

    yes,...full size.in tactical t-shirt or desantis speed scabbord depending on if i'm using my motorcycle or not.i wear full bike gear..that's an advantage.it also fits in my desantis super fly(bit of a bulge)but that's the home of the p7m8.

    hot weather(mesh type)bike jackets are awesome and you stay cool in hot climate......psst,and they help to conceal.....almost anything.
