    I never wear cover garments in warm weather and positively loathe untucked shirts, so other than when I carry my S&W Model 36 in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster, I always carry IWB. All of my IWB holsters are Don Hume 715Ms. They're a good "beginner" IWB holster, well made and very reasonably priced. I eventually plan to supplant them with better, more expensive holsters, but they were a very effective way to try IWB without spending hundreds of dollars.

    I wear western shirts and tucked in t shirts, so IWB tuckable is my norm. Every once in a while I'll go untucked or wear a jacket and move to a regular IWB. I don't alter my wardrobe for carry. I find a holster that lets me wear the gun I want, where I want, in the clothes I want. And that's why I've got about 6 holsters for one gun...ha.

    Oh, my most used holsters are:

    IWB: Milt Sparks VM2
    IWBT: CTAC
    OWB: Blackhawk! SERPA...never really use OWB though.

    I use Comp-Tac's C-Tac for IWB, very little leather, only the tabs connecting the body to the belt to the belt clips. The holster maintains its shape for one-hand holstering and the retention force is precisely adjustable. Here's a picture:

    IWB

    I bought one from Dave at Little Bear Holsters. He was great to deal with and I use his product every day

    HAHA I am crossbreed all the way though I have a few other holsters.
    I do have a supertuck but hardly use it. My main are the Qwikclip and Snapslide. They both work for my G21 and G30. If I am not to worried about printing or Ocing I use my snapslide. Qwikclip for deeper concealment.

    I like both actually, but most of the time it's IWB for me.

    One or more were purchased from a vendor at a local gun show. The other I purchased online from a place whose name escapes me. I'll post it if I come across it. All of my Don Humes have the clip.

    For almost nine years it was IWB, but lately I have been using an OWB holster and I am really enjoying the new found comfort which is no more difficult to conceal than my IWB.

    My choice for IWB carry is the Tucker Undercover. Carries my CZ75 P-06 securely and gives me the option of tucked or untucked.

    High Noon Split Decision for me. I wear it daily with jeans and a t-shirt. At work I wear an undershirt tucked in just in case my t-shirt comes up no one will see it.

    x2, I made the switch a couple of months ago with the same results.

    Regarding BTB Holsters

    Not to hijack this thread but since BTB (between the belt) holsters was mentioned I have a question.

    What do you guys think about this holster for a Colt Mustang?

    Thanks,
