I am very happy with my Old Faithful IWB hybrid holster for my Nano. I bought a quick assembly kit from them for less than $50.

Tuckable iwb at 3 or 4.....ISB...or outside waistband at 3 or 4. it seems that iwb seems to create a large waistline change on the side that it is concealed...but owb in either location has its challenges as there are times I have to tuck in a shirt. Looking for advice from those of you that have way more experience than I as I am soon to get my ccw.
I have applied for my CHL, but here in Texas, we only have conceal, no open. So I have looked at a lot of video reviews on different IWB holsters, but the thought of spending $50-90 and not liking it scares me. Then there's the question of one belt clip or two. I really don't want a box of holsters. I am not complaining about the cost of protection for self and family, but $540 for my G19, $70 for CHL, $100 for class in a couple of weeks, PLUS cost of ammo for, I'd like to get a holster that I'll use.

AMEN..that is exactly my point. As I mentioned...I have gained a lot of knowledge from the opinions and reviews here..so I am hoping that helps.

While you're researching your holster decision, think about including a good gun belt. That can make or break successful and comfortable concealed carry.

I carry a full-size XD-40 service in a CrossBreed SuperTuck Deluxe IWB holster, and I have a bullhide gunbelt from The Beltman. I opted for 3/4" hole spacing on the gunbelt, and I go up one belt hole when carrying.

If you tuck your shirt and "blouse" it over just a bit it pretty much covers up the bulge from the holster.

I've carried this way for years and, to my knowledge, no one has noticed...at least nothing has ever been said.

Thanks for this. I had thought about a better belt but did not of a good place to look. The belt that I use currently is not optimal for EDC.
