    Just got (almost - tomorrow it’s out of jail) a new Hellcat. Looking for carry options. Who has what, ie, IWB, OWB, appendix, pocket, etc, and what do you like? What don’t you like? I might add I really wanted to attend Welders event but was out of town in free WV during that time. I’m sure I could have gained a lot there.

    I’ve only tried the Desantis Slim-Tuk holster for my Hellcat. It’s simple and I find it very comfortable.

    I have a basic concealment express iwb holster for mine. Also make sure you go to springfield's site to get your 3 free mags.
    Thanks. Trying to figure out how to get the “std” mags instead of “MD approved” BS mags. I have contacts in PA so I may be able to have mags shipped there. LGS (Bank in HDG - SHOUT OUT) already shipped std mags there.

    Unfortunately you will have to try things out and see.

    Yeah, I realize that but was hoping to maybe get a head start as to what to avoid or maybe what to look more into. As much as I would like to go towards an IWB, I hate to admit that there is a little too much (ok, a LOT too much) of me already inside the IWB.
    It is a W&C permit you could go OWB holster with long shirt. Printing will only endear you to the Karens

    First of all, there's too much of me IWB, too. Second, your post made me hear Chris Farley sing "fat guy with a tiny gun". :D

    Honestly, you need both options available to you. Cooler months will be much more comfortable carrying OWB with a nice leather holster under a flannel or vest.

    Accept the inevitable , and embrace it !

    You Will initially need at least one IWB , and at least one belt holster . After a month or two , you will form an opinion between the two catagories .

    You Will eventually have a basket full of holsters .

    I pick up my Pro today! I ordered the fat guy appendix holster from JX tactical. It should be here in a day or 2.
    I'll let you know how it works out.

    Did you get the OSP version? Make sure the holster(s) have that option.

    This is just one of the holsters I have for this one and been able to sit comfortably through nice evening dinners with it.

    Also have a Bravo OWB mostly used at the range.

    Hmmm. I like that - is it the Crossbreed Reckoning pictured? Mine is OSP but does not have the optics installed.

    Harry's holsters seemed to work decent for me. 100% transparency, only worn around the house since I'm still awaiting approval

    Crossbreed super tuck. IWB


    It’s call the super tuck because it’s designed to allow you to tuck your shirt into it. Works with untucked shirt. Note: I have a muffin top and have no issues wearing the holster or unholstering the pistol.

    DM if you want to see photos.
