Default Need holster info and suggestions

Heya everyone, hope you're all having a great day!

I searched, I really did! But I couldn't quite find an answer to my question.

Ok, so I am in the process of getting my CCW (Riverside). My interview is the end of this summer (August 2018). I am going to need a holster for the qualifying class - and I don't have a holster at all right now. Can I go ahead and get an IWB holster for the class/process - or do I HAVE to use an OWB holster until I have the permit?

Thanks in advance

Take care,

Rob, your trainer is going to want you to have an OWB holster for the class. They need to see the gun and your manipulations. That should have been in your paperwork for Riverside.
Since California doesn't allow Open Carry your OWB holster can be used at a range if they allow it or BLM land shooting but not around town. If you own a business you could use it at work.
Don't rush to by a holster for CCW until you have completed training and are waiting to pick up your permit. Your really don't learn anything walking around the house focused on the holster.
Since you have time, I suggest you bring your gun to the Ontario Gun Show the first weekend of May. I will be there with my CCW shop as will a host of other vendors and you can try solutions before you buy. A good OWB holster for the class will cost you around $35, you may want a pair of mag holders as well. For IWB your going to want to try some solutions, your life could depend on it, and playing a eBay/Amazon lottery with your selection may not be the best choice.
Feel free to call me, if you want to discuss, no obligation to buy anything, holsters are what I do. I may be a little hard to get a hold of later this week, I am at the California Gang Task Force meeting and then Long Beach Grand Prix so will be hard to talk from Thursday through Sunday.

I would suggest that you call the instructor of the ccw class and ask them.
