I just got a PF9 and am having trouble finding a small of the back holster. Anybody know where I can look or know of any good brands? I planning on carrying this pistol 100% of the time and want a comfortable holster.

As someone who has been CCWing for several years now, and as a physical therapist, I would recommend against carrying SOB. The reasons: high risk of spine injury if you fall/ get knocked down, slower draw than from the 3-5 o'clock positions, very difficult to avoid sweeping yourself with the muzzle during the draw, it tends to be less comfortable, and it prints almost immediately when you bend forward at the waist. But if you're committed to carrying that way, check companies like Galco or DeSantis, pretty sure they make holsters specifically for SOB. A Theis should work also even though they aren't specifically designed for it.

Not trying to tell you what to do brother but small of the back is the worst position to carry a weapon. Way to slow on the draw, very poor control on draw and harder to reholster. Remember you may have to go hands on with a subject and not draw your weapon. If you have it in the small of your back you will have very poor control over it. Best place is appendix carry or at your 2 to 4 o clock. My favorite holster for CC is in order from first choice to last.

GREAT VIDEOS to learn from! Here is trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTr8xvkUWp4

1. http://www.atomicdogholsters.com/Main.html (same as raven holsters but half the wait)

2. http://www.ravenconcealment.com/ (is my second choice because it takes awhile to get)

3. http://www.safariland.com/DutyGear/product.aspx?pid=567

4. http://www.safariland.com/DutyGear/product.aspx?pid=5197 (cant beat it for the price)

There are many other good holsters out there but these are the ones that I can speak for since I have carried them. Remember dress around your handgun so that you dont print and seek proper training continuously. Here is a great web site if you havnt heard of it before. Todd Green is a good guy to learn from when it comes to handguns.
