Switch Guard by Side Guard Holsters
#1
question 
I recently acquired a Ruger SR9c to be my primary carry gun. I usually carry owb in a leather holster under a loose fitting t-shirt. I hate iwb, but I know from time to time I would rather carry a larger caliber than my Ruger LCP in an iwb holster. I'm not big into "crossbreed style" holsters, but then again I dislike most iwb holsters. That being said while owb internet surfing, I came across "the slide" by Side Guard Holsters. Looks like a good leather owb holster at a reasonable cost with a reasonable wait time. Then I saw "the switch guard" by Side Guard Holsters. It's basically "the slide" owb holster, but also has removable belt loops so you can carry it iwb if you want to. Forget the pros/cons of carrying this holster owb. For iwb using its belt loops, what are your opinions? If you guys think carrying this thing iwb won't be too practical, then I'll purchase the slide for owb carry and buy a high noon holsters iwb holster. Since I rarely carry iwb, I'd buy a cheap holster, but if it was my main method of carry, then I wouldn't mind dropping more money on it. Thanks guys and gals!

-Best of The Slide OWB with belt slot connection
-Best of Double Snap IWB with removeable belt loops with snaps

Customer Feedback:
-Love having one holster that can do IWB or OWB with just adding or removing the snap connections.
-I normally carry OWB but once in a while IWB carry is better because my cover garment is shorter. This is the perfect and cheaper solution to two separate holsters.
-Love the stainless steel hardware because I do sweat and have had problem with other holsters.

I haven't ever tried purchasing a holster that allows for OWB and IWB as an option. There may be a good one out there that does both, but I think you will have the best luck with IWB using one specifically designed for IWB.

I recently got the N82 Tactical Professional for a Walther PPQ, and I'm liking it pretty well. It's not dirt cheap, but it's not ridiculously expensive either. I can say their customer service is awesome, and if you don't like the holster they will give you a full refund. It is top notch quality and is pretty darn comfortable for an IWB. They also shipped quickly and I didn't have to wait forever.

I've only been carrying less than a year, but from talking to a lot of folks, the only way to know if a holster will work for you seems to be to try it for yourself. Good luck and let us know what you try and how it works out!

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.
