I take that recommendation highly from someone like you Spitty. I shall check them out tonight. I need to finalize some Christmas shopping anyways.

I also have the Cross Breed Super Tuck (but for my XD45C) and absolutely love it. Like Spitty, I wear mine in the 4 o'clock position and wear my regular size pants and a loose fitting polo or button down over it. I've found that the thicker material of the polo in a darker color hides my weapon better than lighter colors and/or fabric weights. I wore it to dinner the other night with my wife and her family and no one had a clue that I was carrying, even with black clips over a brown belt as the loose fitting polo covers the majority of the exposed portion of the clips.

I'm really glad you like the CBST, Spitty! Now if I can just talk my wife into letting me get another one for my Kimber...

Bought a supertuck deluxe along with a good belt a couple months ago based on recommendations I got on another FTF thread.
Great holster, very comfortable and concealable. Carry full size kimber and ten minutes after I put it on for the first time, I forgot it was even there. I know the belt helps too, but in my somewhat limited experience, this is the best IWB holster Ive used.

I have tried to bring myself to purchase a Crossbred Supertuck but I just do not like the way they look. I have never been able to hold one nor do I know anyone that owns one, but the craftsmenship lookes like it is not well made. I would hate to spend the money on it to test it out and find out that I did not like it.

I have the Milt Sparks VM2 for my XD45C. I was using a Galco Summer Confort Holster for IWB till I got my VM2. Now I wonder why it took me so long to order it.

I LOVE my crossbreed holster now that I've had it a few months and it's "broken in." I wear it at 4 o'clock with a Colt Combat Commander. My pants are already slightly large on me (1") so I don't have any issues with IWB carry and pant size. It's really comfortable, and I barely notice that my gun is there except when I'm driving...

Oh, I also wear my shirts tucked in most of the time, which is another reason I love this holster.

My only complaint is the retention, which is very little. There's instructions on how to increase it, and I just may sometime.

I can understand not wanting to spend the money without being able to handle one first and I had some of the same feelings. I can promise you, the holster is a well made piece. If you order it and decide you don't like it, you have 2 or 3 weeks to return for a refund, so you and try it and then decide. Plus is has a lifetime warrenty.

I like to carry my Kimber too - it hides real well.

I just bought my Supertuck a few weeks ago. I carry my XD SC 9mm in it and sometimes my XDm 9mm.

I really like my ST! I also like the fact that I can carry either XD in it, they both fit just right.

Thanks for the info Spittinfire. I might have to order one and find out if I like it or not. I just find it hard to believe that it is more comfortable then the
VM-2.

I wore it to church on Sunday with a button down tucked in and my wife didn't know I was wearing it until we got home. They make different color clips and different styles to meet your needs.

I decided to give this a try after my good friend Rusty suggested it.

I got it about a week ago and I tried it for the first time last weekend. Not a big outing, but I wore it for about 3 hours and it was quite comfortable.

I am not a big fan of Kydex. In fact, along with plastic guns, I hate plastic holsters almost as much.

That said, this carry system is quite comfortable and I see myself wearing it more often than some of my other holsters.

Here are a few pictures with some guys Nighthawk GRP I borrowed for testing.
