Im sure there are many left handers out there and my buddy, just bought his first gun. A Springfield XDM 9mm (4") for his CHL carry. He starts his class on Saturday as a complete novice. Can some one give him advice to their favorite conceal position, and holster for a lefty. His job has him in suits everyday, and jeans and polos on the weekends. Thank you for advance, and if this is a repost question I apologize ahead of time.

Don't worry, he'll have MONTHS to think about how he wants to carry....<grumbling about CHL processing times>





Really, same for lefties as for righties. An IWB is a good option under untucked shirts/casual dress. If he needs to wear tucked in without a cover garment, a tuckable IWB is an option.

I find OWB more comfortable. But the cover garment/shirt tail needs to be long enough to cover.

Apology accepted.

Like Shorts said, it's the same as a right hander, but the holster will be made for a lefty. Some people use the opposite hand holster for a cross draw for example, for sitting in a car. For a lefty that would be more difficult due to the seat belt, but then again, same issue for a righty carrying strong side.

In a suit is difficult as shoulder holster for the most part isn't ideal except for Hollywood. IWB cna be great as you can carry outside your tucked shirt if you keep the jacket on all the time. It would be like carrying OWB but the gun is mostly covered. If the jacket comes off, IWB in a tuckable holster is the other not so ideal, but best option.

I should just defer all question to you from now on. Oh, and thanks for the back up on LPF...Mr Helper

I use a Kholster IWB and love it.
