    FIST has the SR9 on their list. Their ultra thin kydex are very thin. Might just be what your looking for.

    I have a Milt Sparks and I love his work and outstanding customer service!

    Additionally, I have a Thunderwear, which is the same as the ‘SmartCarry’, and I love it too. In fact, it’s as basic and universal as a carry device can possibly be. Because of its pocket design, it can effectively be used for a multitude of guns you may now own, or may own in the future. That in it self makes for a low risk and low cost option. I’ll be ordering another one shortly as the elastic band is about worn out after two years of sustained use.

    Highly recommended ~

    p.s. To earlthegoat2; I enjoyed reading your review of the VMAX II.

    I carry a full size pistol (PX4 Storm 4" barrel) in a Blade-Tech OWB Paddle holster with a 15 degree cant. I can wear it with just a white tee-shirt and no one can tell. The holster really hugs your body and the angle of the handle matches your body.

    I'm a skinny guy and hate IWB holsters. They are extremely uncomfortable. The Blade-Tech holsters are amazing!

    Thanks

    It is the only holster I have found to date that makes carrying a full size year round a viable option.

    I will have to check out those Blade-Tech holsters. I would like to find a couple of good ones for PM9 and a STI LS-9. Have a good custom holster from TT leather for my G-19 but it's takes about 6-9 months to get one made.

    I'm looking for good leather holsters for OWB. The Bladge Tech outfit didn't look like leather to me. They didn't have many to choose from?? May have to order custom holster. They run at least 100 dollars.

    Yes, 'at least' is an understatement. The holster market is certainly one that yields a substantial profit. Still, some of them are really good but you will easily wait for months due to the extremely high demand. I've since placed a limit of $130.00 and anything above that is for someone in Bel-Air or Scottsdale.

    I OWN the Crossbreed its not gonna work for Summer CC for me. Im looking for something with a smaller "footprint" for Summer CC. I will be using the Crossbreed for when I can wear heavier shirts/sweatshirts/jackets to cover its extra bulk...not a bad holster just not good for me for Summer carry as its extra bulk makes 1/2 my jeans and most of my shorts too tight because its so big..where a regular size holster does not.
