Something on the outside of the belt, like an open top.

I've got a High Noon Slide Guard and even with an all steel 1911, I forget it's there. I also like the NFS and may be picking one of those up soon.

El Paso Saddlery offers a couple choices for IWB-their C-Force might work for you-the Glocks are a bit on the thick side, and the C-Force puts the belt retaining strap away from the slide area. Take a look at www.epsaddlery.com.

Thanks to everyone for the help. I am still torn between one that can be worn on the inside of the belt and the other that sits on the outside.

Turns out a co-worker has a hook up on holsters and other firearm parts. He is offering me a Desantis Cozy Partner inside the waistline holster Brand New in the package for 50$. I found them online for 70$. Does Desantis make a good quality holster?

I do not have any personal experience with Desantis-I have heard good things about their holsters (as well as the other holster makers mentioned in other postings). If your friend will allow, try the holster for fit and comfort-$50.00 sounds like a great deal to me!

Thanks for the response. I have put it on and worn it around the house a few times. I do not mind it being there. One downfall I found is the rough lining. Are all holsters like that?

Doug, I wear IWB belts as I feel (MY OPINION) they conceal better with my body build and clothing style.

I have 2 IWB holsters for my 1911 - a Milt Sparks Versa Max II and a Nick Mathews #1.

Comfort for IWB will be based on holster design and material, but also pant size and gun size. Thicker guns may be a bit harder to carry IWB. That is one reason I love my 1911. It is a 4" barrel, single stack and fairly thin. Glocks tend towards the wider side.

Here is my VM2 (www.miltsparks.com) in horsehide/shark in Cordovan:

Here is my Nick Mathews #1 and dual mag holder in black leather (www.nmholsters.com):

If you want comfort, go leather. If you are using this for IDPA or something, kydex may be an option. I've seen a few that have a kydex holster but backed by a leather sweat guard and are actually quite comfortable from what I've heard. I can't recall the names right off hand.

IMO, you will get what you pay for, so don't be afraid of buying a quality holster like an Alessi, Sparks, Delfatti, etc. But also realize that for some of them, there is significant wait time involved. I know Top Gun Supply had VM2's in stock earlier today, but they go QUICK!

Wow, the holster pictured looks much nicer than the Desantis. Do you have any pics of the inside or lining, if there is one?

It is just boned leather. Both fit my 1911 like a glove. I can try to shoot some this weekend. I don't have my holster on right now - I'm at work and guns cannot be brought in (federal regulation).
