    First time

    Had my ccw for a few months now and bought a Springfield 1911 loaded in Feb. , but couldnt find an iwb holster that worked for me. Well I just recieved my super tuck yesterday and carried for the first time today . Went to the range and couple of gun shops and am wearing it around the house trying to get used to it. Im new to handguns so Im going a little slow- carrying cocked and locked but with an empty chamber and a full magazine for right now once I feel comfortable that will change to cocked and locked, loaded chamber.
    Wanna thank you guys and ladies for all the info Ive gotten here.

    I'm ordering my Supertuck later on tonight, looking forward to getting it in the mail.

    Let me know how it feels once you broke it in mate, I have yet to hear anything bad about them.

    Niice, that's good to hear.

    I carry a 5" .45 so this should be exactly what I'm aiming for.

    How fast was it shipped to you?

    Not bad.

    The only thing, is the IWB (supertuck particularly) has the big leather backing, seems that would irritate your skin. But I have heard it's very comfy, even without an undershit.

    Hopefully, that 'comfortable feeling' will hit prior to you leaving the house.

    My Kholster for my Smith hammerless is ultra comfy, with no rubbing at all. And as with most good holsters, I forget its even there, and it stays put as if it were glued in place (I hate holsters that move all around).

    As with any Kydex-type holster, a compromise between retention and ease of draw may demand a hair dryer to loosen/tighten the retention points.

    Crossbreed may look slicker, but the Kholster is significantly cheaper...
