I went with a holster similar to the cross breed. Company out of Texas.

They look huge, but I don't even know it there after it was broke in and I found that sweet spot to carry.

This is the only holster I have bought that requires no thought, fidgeting, adj needed ---Especially after sitting/ standing. It simply does not move.

I even can wear it with shorts and a tshirt.

There is a reason why the large service area works better that a small footprint.

A Milt Sparks VM2 is worth every cent and the wait. The design is perfect, simply genius. I have tried dozens of holsters at all prices. The VM2 positions the pistol at the ideal cant and draws the gun close to your side. The draw is quick and clean.

A second choice for comfort is the N82, any model. Overall a distant second place to the VM2, but it was my favorite for a long time.

I'm of the school of thought where I want to get the most for the money. I bought a Hidden Hybrid Holster. You can wear it IWB and it had the belt slots to wear OWB, plus you save money. The kid tucks and old faithful holsters are expensive, and honestly there is other stud just as good for cheaper.

I use a Desantis Tuck This IWB and have been pleased with the performance. Adjustable cant for a variety of carry positions. I appendix carry a G-20C with spare mag.

I carry a Glock 26 in a Minotaur IWB holster at 5-6 o'clock daily. It is by far the most comfortable holster I have ever used. I forget its there alot of the time. I am 6' 190 pounds and normally wear jeans and a polo shirt untucked and have never been "busted" from it printing. The cant has alot of adjustment so you can set it perfectly for your ideal draw. The only negative is that the Allen screws that hold the belt clips in place (they also are the ones you adjust the cant with) will get loose after wearing it for a couple of months if you don't check them periodically. I had one of the screws fall out one day when taking the holster off about a year or so ago. Now I tighten them every month and haven't had an issue since. I can say it would take something special to get me to use a different holster after using the Minotaur.

It beats the hell out of a rock. Take it and be confortable with it. Should you need it (and I hope you never do) it'll do well.

I use a DeSantis Sof-Tuk for my S&W .380 Bodyguard. IWB is difficult for some who have larger guns. I cannot carry comfortably IWB with my P99 or my PT38s.
