Keep her happy!

I always liked the Tactical 4.0 platform in 9mm, just never had a chance to shoot.
Do you carry your Tactical? I have attempted to carry my custom edge around the house just to see if it (tactical) was too wide for carry. The edge is so big, I could never make a good decision.

I've done it a few times. I got it with the aluminum frame to keep the weight down for that reason, but it's kind of bulky. Works fine in winter when I can throw on a coat or even a light jacket. Since I only have an OWB holster that fits it takes more than a shirt to keep from printing. My regular carry rotates between my Guardian and Ranger. They both fit in the Crossbreed which I really like.

Looks sweet!

Sorry for the hijack...

Bladetech has some nice kydex IWB holsters. I've got one for my G17 that cost about $50.

Personally I'm a huge fan of the 44 Fabrication IWB holster. Custom, hand-crafted beauty. What's great about this tuck-able leather/kydex holster is that it is interchangeable for all of your handgun models! The custom molded Kydex scabbards snap on/off and you can essentially buy 1 leather backing and multiple kydex fittings for your different guns for a fraction of the price. No need for tons of different holsters, but rather one leather backing and interchangeable kydex scabbards so you can choose your weapon, snap in, and go!. What's great about that is once you get the holster broken in, it carries and wears/feels the same with every firearm. I wear mine every day, and absolutely love it. Handcrafted right here in West Michigan.

If you want to check out pictures, here they are:

I use a Gould 810 IWB



Works pretty good for me.
I also have a Bianchi Pistol Pocket as well but I"m not a big fan of an IWB with a thumb break on them. And the one wide loop doesn't seem as secure as the two smaller ones. It does OK though.

I use a leather lined kydex IWB holster from Garrett Industries. The Silent Thunder Fusion and Solo models have a padded suede back that goes next to your skin for all day comfort. They make all kinds of OWB holsters too that are leather lined too. Below is the Fusion model and Solo.
