If you're not buying everything online, but at a gunshop, spend some time talking to those guys. They all carry, I'm sure. Same for pawnshops I frequent.
Yesterday, I dropped into a pawnshop in another town and before long, three of us had our pistols on the counter, unloaded and were trying each other's stuff out. One decided right after trying my carry of the day that he was going to tune his Glock.
All you have to do to get the ball rolling is to ask what their favorite holsters are and how they like them, etc.
