Default Best holster for concealment ?

Just wanted to get some of your guys take on what holsters you like the best for concealment? What do you feel is the most comfortable, easiest to access, etc?

What firearm?
How to you plan on concealing?
Where do you plan on wearing your weapon?

I have a few different rigs depending on how I plan on CC. You'd probably need to be more specific...

That's a wide open question. It's kind of like saying what's the best pizza? You'll get 50k different answers. Personally, I like my crossbreed for my M&P9C, but it will vary.

This is a complicated subject.

Each individual's physiology is different. What might fit one body type may fail miserably in another.

The clock postion ( one o'clock, two o'clock, etc.) can make a world of difference in how a particular rig conceals.

The degree of cant employed can make a big difference in how well a grip can be concealed.

As you can see, there are a lot of "ifs, ands, or buts" to take into account.

Personally, I have great success carrying a full size XD-40 in a CrossBreed SuperTuck Deluxe IWB holster suspended with a quality Beltman horsehide belt at the 3:00 position with full forward cant.

For my 1911 I use an IWB by White Hat Holster. You can set your own clock & cant.

I live in Vegas.

Hot as hell in summer, cold and windy in the winter.

Crossbreed supertuck (horsehide) with either my full size M&P or Compact M&P.

I wear it everyday, everywhere. The only time I am not carrying is while in the shower or bed.

No other holster has worked this well for comfort and concealment. All the way down to shorts and a tee shirt. And I have a drawer full.
Once I bought the supertuck, the holster drawer stayed shut.

Crossbreed Supertuck for IWB. Simply Rugged for OWB.
