Pistol packers in my age category generally envision an inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster as a rough-out, floppy leather pouch with a steel clip that’s supposed to keep it in place. For many years that was about all that was available, and I was never a user of this type of rig. That era fortunately is long past and today there are some really outstanding IWB holsters that do what they are supposed to do and are fairly comfortable.
One holster that recently came to my attention is from DSG Arms, a supplier of shooting gear that includes AR carbine parts and accessories, apparel, belts and holsters. The holster I’m referring to is the CDC (Compact Discreet Carry), an IWB holster that marks the newest addition to the company’s holster lineup.

Unlike the old-time IWB outfits, the CDC is made of rugged black Kydex, making it strong but very lightweight. It’s designed for low-profile all-day wear and the cant can be adjusted for behind-the-hip or appendix carry. The injection-molded ABS belt clip is mounted to the holster body with rubber washers and Phillips screws. It has a built-in sight channel, tension adjustment for weapon security and will fit on 1.5- or 1.75-inch belts. A raised tab on the inside of the holster body protects the wearer on this open-top/open-bottom design.
