    I need advice on a good pocket holster for my Sig 290 to be carried in my right front pocket daily in khaki's. I also need advice on a good purse holster for my wife who has a Subcompact 3 inch Springfield XD 9mm! Thanks

    The Desantis Nemesis works great for me in my right front pocket and is inexpensive. Can't help with the purse.

    My wife used to carry in her purse (she doesn't carry anymore for medical reasons). Couple of things we learned during our search for hers.

    (1) Look for a strap with a steel cable running through it. This prevents, or at least makes it harder, for someone to come up behind her, cut the strap and grab the purse.

    (2) Make sure there is a seperate holster/compartment. Most purses sold as "carry purses" do, but verify. She doesn't want to draw the gun and pull out half the stuff in the purse.

    (3) Make sure the access point to the gun is big enough for the gun she plans to carry. My wife bought one that was too small for her Glock 19 and her hand. She couldn't get the gun out with her hand in the normal draw position.

    My wife is using a sneaky Pete clipped into her purse... Nice.... Thin... Covers the gun on top yet is easily accessible. Plus she got it in RED leather so it looks feminine... But then again she is using the p32 model so it may not be as wonderful with a larger gun...
