For what it's worth, my stepfather uses an Urban Carry for his Kimber Ultra Carry and swears by it

I on the other hand have a P238 and prefer a pocket holster as opposed to an IWB holster, but I have not personally used to Urban Carry to compare and contrast

Haven't used the N82 holster yet because I've been pretty happy with the pocket holster. But now the winter months are coming I am going to give the N82 IWB a good try. Never carried IWB before so I'm sure it will take some getting used to.


Hank, any feedback on the N82 fit and comfort now that winter is hopefully winding down? I have never tried an N82 for any of my guns so am curious as I just recently bought a 938.

I tried to use the N82 as an appendix carry but found it was to big.
I have used mostly the Crossbreed appendix holster and a DeSantis soft tuc that I altered. I like the security the Crossbreed gives me and I also like how comfortable the DeSantis is. I like both although I think I can trim some leather off the Crossbreed to make it more comfortable.

I use the N82 Tactical holster for the 938 on a regular basis, but I wear it at 3 o'clock. No printing at all. I do highly suggest the pro version though with the polycarbonate shell versus their original style with the elastic material. Yes, you do have to twist slightly to pull the gun out, but now it is pretty much normal for me. I don't even think about it. Gun is very secure and it may be the only holster that puts material between you and the grips. The suede against the body can't be more comfortable. I can even tuck in polo or T shirts with the pro model. All you can see is the single clip. They do make a two clip model now as well for those who feel better with the dual clip style.

I pocket carry my P938. I prefer pocket carry because it's comfortable and works with just about any clothing I prefer to wear, no matter the season or occasion. A hand in the pocket and already on the gun can be comforting if you anticipate needing it and fast if you do need it. I'm not into practicing in front of a mirror 12 hours per day in order to be halfway proficient in being able to draw my pistol from the latest trick holster on the market. I'm also not interested in spending half a day wondering what clothes I need to choose in order to dress around my preferred holster and gun and end up being the guy that everyone stares at with that "What's up with this dude?" looking on their face.

Some of the videos out there featuring shooters drawing or mainly, working at drawing their handgun from their favorite holster are almost laughable and make me wonder whether the person is auditioning for Dancing With The Stars, doing an workout video or what. I figure the bad guy would just go ahead and shoot me if I were to go into any of these contortions or perhaps, he would just fall down laughing and give me time to make a run for it or pull out my instruction manual that came with the holster.

Anyway, I'm not advocating for a particular holster type or carry gun. I am simply stating what works for me personally. I like things easy and simple. Others may have a different viewpoint.

IMHO, the Urban Carry holster is a joke. The reviewer mentions that he normally wears his shirts untucked...Sooo, Why would you NOT wear your pistol in a good appendix inside waistband (APIW) or Sparks VersaMax II holster that allows you to Immediately get a solid firing grip once you have the cover garment out of the way and also makes the pistol accessible if you are sitting or otherwise have your support arm busy doing other things (lke fending off an attacker's blunt or edged instrument, etc.) instead of this Rube Goldberg contraption?

If you have to wear your shirt tucked in and cannot wear any sort of cover garment (sport coat, sweater, vest, lab coat, etc.), then i can think of a few much better ways to carry concealed: small auto or wheelgun in a pocket or ankle holster (or a thigh holster for women in skirts), a loose-fitting shirt over a belly-band type holster, and even an off-body carry mode such as a day planner, etc.

Carrying concealed means evaluating the environment you will be operating in, selecting the right size/type of firearm best-suited for concealment/covert carry, and "dressing around" the gun (i.e., selecting the appropriate attire that enables you to blend into that environment while concealing the firearm.

Yeah, you'd LIKE to carry your G17 while doing whatever, but sometimes its impossible and you have to take that G43 - or "just" your brain. Hopefully, you've been exercising that regularly and haven't bought into an Urban Carry state of mind...

Don't necessarily disagree with you re Urban Carry, though truthfully I have not purchased nor tried one. I will admit that in watching the ads it struck me as an eye catching potential option. I don't have the 6-pack washboard stomach and appendix carry for me just isn't in the cards. My military fitness days are in the rear-view mirror at this point. However, I can see this as a viable option for some and as such I wouldn't blast the "Urban Carry state of mind."

I appreciate the fact that we have companies willing to think out of the box and try different options. Bottom line, we are all looking out for individual and or family safety and UC may well be a perfect fit for some.
