IWB, opinions only please
 
I'm expecting to receive my CCW any day and I will begin carrying my Glock 23 (it's the pistol I own now and can't afford something else at this time). From what I see, it's between the King Tuck and the Cross Breed, I know it really comes down to preference but what's everyone's opinion preferably supported by experience.

The only IWBs I own are N82 pro tactical holsters. They are sooooo comfortable. I carry my G35 and my SR1911 in these holsters.

You have solicited my Opinion.

IWB's don't work for me.

Thank you for this opportunity to share my opinion.

I prefer my Old Faithful holster. Good price point, especially if you buy the kit, excellent warranty, good design, American made, etc.

I carry my full size 1911 IWB with a Crossbreeds supertuck made from the horsehide. It is nice but I still had to do one modification (cut a hole in the leather where it kept pushing the magazine release.)

My crossbreeds holster was expensive. Does it do the job, yes. Does it feel good on my side, yep. Do I believe it's a little over priced, you betcha.

My next IWB holster will be the same style but probably a different brand. There is a company out of Texas, my home state, that I think I will try next cause they are less expensive and well, Texas made.

Those two are good if you intend to wear a tucked in shirt *over* your gun. I generally wear untucked shirts, sweaters or sweatshirts as cover garments so my preference is a "summer special" style IWB holster.

This is my Glock 36 in a holster from JBP Holsters. The original Summer Special was created by Milt Sparks but he has a long waiting list and several other manufactures now offer similar "rough out" holsters.

One other thing, be sure to get a good gun belt. Department store belts are really not stiff enough to hold a gun securely and comfortably all day long. I'd suggest looking at offerings from The Beltman or Amish Belts (for leather) or Wilderness Instructor Belts (for synthetic). FWIW I like my belts with kydex stiffeners. :)

My first and only IWB holster is Cross Breed.

I have a few IWB rigs but the one I use most is Gould 810. I don't always use IWB but this one seems the most comfortable. Mine sized to a commander length but they make it for a full size as well. Actually they make it for many pistols. I have a friend wit ha Glock that uses the same holster.

Mine looks like....
