    I have a few of his Covert Carry holsters that I am very happy with. Low riding and very comforting.

    Take a look at Comp Tac's CTAC and MTAC here.
    Both of those holsrers are hight adjustable (I've swaped the leather tabs around on the CTAC had it ride really low) and comfortable.....although the MTAC's leather back makes it better to wear aginst bare skin. Both are also tuckable, that's a plus for me when I dress up and make myself man-pretty to be seen out in town with SWMBO.

    I'll second the MTAC or Minotaur...I've got a Minotaur that I love enough that I bought Shells for each of the guns that I normally carry.

    I like the looks of the Comp Tacs---Is the kydex more abrasive on the finish of the gun than leather?

    If you do a search on the holster part of the site here, the con-sense is yes it can be more abrasive. A carry gun is a tool so it will get wear.

    Do not forget to check the Alessi holsters at http://www.alessigunholsters.com/. They are very slim and well made.
