    I am one who tries to pinch pennies, I have found a couple items which have worked for me for the last couple years. I have had good success with ACE Case Tuckable holsters from cheaperthandirt.com they are 10$ each and have various models to fit different guns as well as some ambidextrous one which I prefer because they allow me to cant the gun. I find the position I like the gun and then put a few stitches in holster so the gun sits the way I perfer it. I have recently found good belts made by Dickies at Walmart, they measure about 1/4" thick and are 1.25 wide and fairly stiff cost about 12$. I like 1.5" wide belts but they do not fit all my pants, especially dress pants... these have worked for me, from what I have read, beltman belts seem to have the highest rating as do crossbreed holsters for tuckable IWB... I do not use OWB and I make my own pocket holsters... stay tuned because many will chime in and there are many options: Galco, Kangaroo Carry, Belly band, Conceal t-shirts and shorts, ankle holsters... have fun searching and may your box of holsters won't grow too large!

    The best advise I can give is plan on having more than one. I have three that I rotate depending on what I am wearing and my travels. I have a Crossbreed Super Tuck (CBST), Front Line (IWB)w/ alpha lining, and a Glaco slide. The Galco replaced a Triple K (great quality holster) slide that I had for 16 years. Good Luck with your search, there is a lot to think about when you make your purchase.

    Definately take a look at Crossbreeed. It was the last IWB holster I bought. I wish I had learned that lesson hundreds of dollers before.

    I did a lot of research on this site and just ordered my CBST last week, it all depends on what your needs are but you should check out Crossbreed

    Highly recommend Mtac. After my recent experience with Crossbreed, I 'd avoid that mistak of buying a Supertuck. Mtac is far better made.

    I have a Supertuck and Minituck. They are awesome. I am glad I started with the Supertuck so I did not waste a lot of money looking.
