    IWB holster suggestions?

    I carry a Glock 23 every day. I have never been an IWB carry kind of guy but my situation has recently changed and I find myself now wanting to go IWB. I have carried OWB for ever.

    Can anyone out there suggest some good IWB holsters that are comfortable? The big reason that I have not carried IWB much is that I find it uncomfortable.

    I am sure a good comfortable IWB holster will be like any OWB holster, you get what you pay for. I would be looking in the to $150 to $200 for a good holster. Of course I would be willing to go lower than that but up to that I could probably do with out my wife wanting to kick my butt too hard.

    I use a supertuck in horsehide for my 40 cal xdm. After break in period don't even notice it. Make sure you get good stiff belt.Some on forum like leather butI use wilderness tac instructor belt (5 stich). I just like the velcro adjustment instead of being limited to holes in leather. Very helpful when lunch is good and plentiful

    Many folks carry IWB with no problems. Many others, like myself, cannot tolerate IWB carry for any extended period. Your Glock 23 is a relatively bulky piece.

    My first suggestion is to try carrying your Glock in the intended carry position around the house for a few hours, without holster, then decide whether or not you might be able to tolerate the bulk inside your waistband everyday, all day.

    Next, please be aware that you may need to adjust your wardrobe for IWB carry. Many customers report that they need to use trousers and belts about 2" larger than usually worn when carrying IWB. This can result in a significant investment in new trousers and belts.

    You will, indeed, get what you pay for; but I hope that you will make every effort to assure yourself that IWB carry will work for you prior to spending any amount of money!

    By the way, I've been carrying daily for over 40 years and making holsters since 1972. Maybe I've learned a few things that I can pass on.

    Best regards.

    I happen to have these ready to ship, at below the stated price range:

    Comfortable, quality, easy on/off, one-handed re-holstering... http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/holster/1A.htm

    I have quite a few of these for various firearms. It's not costing an arm or a leg to give it a try.

    Thanks. Some good suggestions. I like the look of the Crossbreed holster but I really like the ability to buy different holster bodies for different guns with the MTAC holster. And the Isotope - 7 looks good too.

    I recommend the Tucker Silent Thunder for IWB. The leather lining inside the Kydex preserves you gun's finish better than Kydex alone, it's comfortable, and has a single belt clip making it a grab and go type holster. See links in my signature.

    another vote here for the MTAC. Great holster. Comfortable, conceals very well. The interchangeable body is icing in the cake, Although i'm considering getting a second MTAC when i get my new gun, just because i'm probably too lazy to change out the kydex part when i want to change carry config on the fly.

    Unfortunately, some of the most comfortable and best made holsters are the hardest to get. I have IWB holsters from Del Fatti, Sparks and Brommeland which fit and ride beautifully, but I'm sure you don't want to wait years for delivery. I also have holsters from UBG and C6 which are superbly crafted and delivered in a reasonable time frame. I actually think the UBG Canute is the best holster around.

    The MTAC from comp-tac.com is good. It's very adjustable, so you can experiment with different heights, cants and locations to find out where IWB works best for you. It's also tuckable.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    I really like my M-Tac. I don't feel the need to wear a T-Shirt under it, the leather is fine agains skin. Comp-Tac also has a very fast turn around right now, if time is a concern for you. I have a C-Tac also, and while it is thinner (slightly) the M-Tac is more comfortable, especially if you have any love handles at all.

    I have been very happy with my Crossbreed Super Tuck in horsehide. I carry a Glock 22. BTW, I very seldom wear a undershirt.
