    Congrats on getting your permit and doing the Wally Walk. If ever you want to see a bunch of sheeple, walk through Walmart. It's the Land of the Clueless!

    I know you've said that you want a leather holster, but I'd recommend a Remora. It's very comfortable and very versatile.

    I guess holster making would be my next millionaire opportunity missed. lol
    No one tells ya that when you apply for the permit, you should also order the holster :)

    I too was turned off by wait time. Tried various other IWB brands, but Crossbreed can't be beat IMO. The only thing I don't care for about them is the logo on the clips, but you can order blank ones now. Though I haven't yet since I don't actually use it with tucked shirt.

    Order a CrossBreed now, and get a DeSantis Soft Tuck off Amazon to get you by until the CrossBreed gets in. Won't be a wasted effort since the DeSantis comes in handy for quick trips to the store and sport pants

    What gun are you carrying? I just got a Milt S. VMII took about 4 days to get from the day I ordered it Bought it on gun broker from Alan Yoast via info from GeorgiaDawg. Little more in price but well worth the (lack of) wait. Im carrying a Colt Commander in it and love it.

    Congrats on getting your permit. Have you considered the Galco Royal Guard IWB.

    Seems like everyone makes Walmart their first stop after getting a permit!

    I know I was thinking everyone was going to notice, then when I got there I was reminded that most people in Walmart don't notice you trying to get past them when they're blocking the aisle with their cart and 400lb arse, so they're never going to notice your carry gun...

    Congrats! Still waiting on my Nevada permit. But still haven't mailed in my Florida one. Guess I should expect a 90 day wait for that.

    Good thing I did enough research in these forums. I ordered my CBST when I applied and it came in before the CCW. Now, I'm wearing it around the house to break it in and get comfortable with it.

    I have a TT Gunleather Stronghold Convertable for my Walther PPS. I have only worn it IWB so far, and I really like it. I also have a ComTac MTAC for the PPS, I bought the TT holster mainly to use OWB. I also carry a Sig P238 in a Cross Breed Mini Tuck. I am happy with all of my holsters, but the Stronghold is my favorite. Another option you may want to look at is the Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro. I ordered one for my wife's new 938, but it hasn't come in yet.

    I know that nearly everyone here swears by CBST, but I am just not "WOW'ed" by Kydex. JMO, I think it looks cheapy... I realize that it takes man-hours to construct a leather holster and a Kydex holster can be made with a blank and a heat gun, but there is something very compelling about a well made leather holster.

    @ping.brady, I am also turned off by the logo on the CBST clips. It looks like a christian cross. Not something I personally would wear. If I decide to go with a Leather/Kydex, I will probably lean toward a WhiteHat Maxtuck... or a SHTF Gear Ace1... and use that while a wait a year for my Brigade M-11 Osterich trim!

    Edit: Thank Skate for the great Info on TT Stronghold.... as I stated earlier that holster is on my short list as well.

    I have a Hybrid holster from Hidden Hybrid Holsters. Much like the Crossbread, but had loops so it can be worn OWB if desired. The Metal clips that came with it were a tiny bit short to fit my 5-11 belt, so I contacted them and they made me some Kydex clips and sent them out for my ... the kidex clips are awesome and a perfect fit for my belt. .

    I agree about leather holsters being more elegant but the Hybrid holster really is comfortable IMO. one day I will get a nice 1911 or revolver and get a nice OWB Holster for it.

    I ordered a whitehat about a week ago or so. The site says it should take about 3 weeks for me to get it. I've heard great things so it's worth the wait.

    I have a FIST OWB on order... 4 weeks into a 6-8 week wait. FIST, INC.

    Then today I ordered a N82 IWB today with a 1 week turnaround time. http://n82tactical.com/n82store/

    Both for my Glock27.

    Then I'm DONE ordering holsters. Really. I mean it! Seriously!!! Ugh... probably not...

    No problems with christian cross here, just that it's a dead giveaway that person is carrying. Seen it at least 5 times over the years (outside gun shows and shops). Regular mat clips would have had better chance of going unnoticed.

    Congrats on the new permit! It won't be long before it will become 2nd nature. You might as well clean out a drawer now. You'll need it for all of the holsters you're going to collect...LOL
