Who carries a Canik for EDC

Not everyday.....but on occasion- depending on where I go and how I dress.

I live near the gulf coast..... hot and humid is the norm nearly 6 months out of the year. I wear my C-100 now and then, but mostly my sub-compacts (Bersa or Kahr) in summer. With Fall/Winter approaching I expect to carry a DA on the cold days when I can cover it with heavy clothing. Will probably carry the C-100 more often.

For me?......the Elite is too big for IWB.
Maybe I don't have enough padding around my waist....and my old bones can't take the pressure. Small sub-compacts I can IWB, but even then...gotta be on the side.

My C-100 is EDC if the weather is below 80 degrees. Over that, either my KelTec P11 or my favorite (But it's only a .380) FEG PA63 AP9. Probably the most comfortable gun to handle, carry and shoot of any I've ever had. Wish is was in .9mm.

My Elite is my weekend EDC. I use a SMC holster for AIWB. With a good belt, it hides nicely with shorts and a t shirt.

Carry the T100 sometimes in cooler weather.

I typically carry my Walther P99c, but when the weather turns and I wear more clothing, I sometimes carry my TP9DA on my waistband. It's a bit too bulky for me to carry IWB. But yes, in colder weather, I will carry the DA on my waistband.

My Elite is my edc. I carry at 3:30 using a clinger no print wonder IWB. My personal philosophy is to use a weapon that will handle any problem that may come up first and to worry about concealing it second. Warm weather just requires wearing a loose fitting shirt for a cover garment, I find that a pair of cargo shorts and a Hawaiian style shirt conceal my Elite just fine. Yeah I may look a little funny around here but at my age I can get away with about anything, no one expects me to be fashionable. Who would believe that the old dork is armed? I just don't do my best work with a pocket pistol, never have. I like the clinger concept in holsters, You can purchase the hardware to turn it into an OWB or two different IWB styles.

Trying to find a holster for my Elite combat (may have to modify one for regular Elite) and it will go into my EDC rotation. It is actually a little smaller (in the grip area) than the XD I have carried for years.
I carry a XDs 45 when I have need for a smaller gun, but I dont like it. Fine gun, I just have big hands and do not want to be under gunned.
I am a bigger guy and can hide a full size gun. Even if I wasn't I still would. 99.9% of people are NOT concerned with you. You could have a FXs on your forehead and at least 60% the general population would not even notice. Also, there are many more ways to carry than on your waste. In fact that is where anyone that would give a crap if you are carrying would look.

I carry my Combat everyday IWB at 4-5 o'clock.
Med frame, 32/32 pants and no problem printing.

You definitely need a good gun belt. I wear a Blue Alpha Group "Hybrid EDC Belt" which has a smaller female buckle that fits easily through standard belt loops. GREAT BELT! ...https://www.bluealphagear.com/product/hybrid-edc-belt/

Is this belt basically for IWB or could it be used for OWB?

I see they carry an OWB but it’s 1.75. Most of my holsters are 1.5.

The belt is fairly stiff and works well for both IWB and OWB.
1.75" belts don't fit the belt loops of a lot of pants.

This is the belt I use for IDPA with a RTI Belt Slide and my SMC Comp holster OWB. The mount is adjustable based on your belt size.

I usually carry a Shark C and occasionally a 1911. I have two OWB holsters and Crossbreed IWB for the Sharks C.

I tried a friend's M&P9 holster and it pretty much fit the SFX fine, so I ordered the OWB Serpa Sport from Amazon for $26.

Wow. A perfect form fit for both the SFX and Elite-S. Lengthwise, the SFX juts out by maybe a half inch and the Elite is maybe a half inch inside. There is maybe a quarter inch of play up and down, but that is hardly noticeable, once it is seated, it stayed there. But for range use, it fits both great. The retention is very solid, you definitely have to release the lock to unholster. This version has the paddle, but I would think that the belt loop version would fit the same.

A very good, very inexpensive solution for range use or open carry.

Looks like the price dropped to $17. Maybe it is a short term sale or something.

Size 25 correct?

Appears a rmr might fit also. Cheap enough and left handed too!
