Kimber Solo concealment options

Kimber Solo CDP 9mm Crimson Trace Grips

With my recent purchase of the Kimber Solo CDP, I was eager to see what sort of concealment options would be available. Both my wife and I were planning on carrying the Solo, so I was looking for an inside the waist-band holster (IWB), while she was looking for something more lady-like 🙂

After looking around the web, I was not able to find may custom holster makers that have Kimber Solo Holsters available, or even in their supported model list; which only further complicated things…

For my IWB holster, I ended up going with Nightingale Leather due to their fast ship times and locality (in Ohio like me). Not to mention, I also happen to already have a holster for my 4″ Kimber Pro Carry from Nightingale Leather.

After reaching out to Kevin at Nightingale, he assured me he was able to take care of creating a fine holster for my Solo CDP.

I ended up going with their IWB Raptor model. Having already used this model before with my Pro Carry, and it being a real high quality clone of the Versa-Max II, I knew it would be a fine purchase.

For my wife, she was looking for a handbag, since like most women, she rarely wears a belt, and sometimes can’t even if she wanted to due to wearing skirts, dresses, etc.

After looking around extensively, she ended up going with a handbag from Gun Tote’n Mamas.

The bag she went with is called the GTM-0070 Concealed Carry Basic Hobo Handbag. The bag is made from quality leather, is stylish and has a built in concealment holster that fits the Solo CDP perfectly.

Overall the Kimber Solo CDP has been a dream to carry due to its light weight and small frame. Yet still packs plenty of power with the 9mm chambering.

    One of the great features of this hand bag compared to others I had looked at is that the holster is reversible. It can be switched to left handed vs right handed or what is comfy to each individual person.

    I would highly recommend the universal fit holster from Stealth Defense Holsters, it works perfect for my Kimber Solo CDP, it has a lifetime warranty and great customer service.

    This is what I carry. Kimber 9mm solo (ankle holster -velcro’d & sheepskin lining) very easy to access, light enough that I don’t think of its presence yet, always aware that it’s there.. I have a Kimber Royal II 45 acp for range & deep woods firing..

    Beautiful holster. I am going to be needing one just like this in the near future. I’m so glad I saw this post
