    Crossbreed Supertuck so far just

    So I after reading what seems like hundreds for great reviews on the CBST, I broke down and ordered one. I have been wearing it for four days now and I would rate it at OK. It's not bad, but it's so far it's not "the most comfortable holster ever" that everyone says that they "forget they are wearing it". I have played with the cant some, now have it in the top hole in the front and the second from the bottom in the rear. I am wearing it about 4:00. Like I said it's ok, but not great. Is there a better adjustment I should try? Do I just need a little more brake in time? I keep reading all these reviews like "it was great right out of the box". I would love to make this holster work like it has for so many other people, any input would be appreciated.

    By the way its a horse hide no combat cut for the Glock 27.

    What are you comparing it to.
    All IWB holsters require some getting used to.
    I wear a Milt Sparks VII with a Glock 26. I love it.

    My CBST is comfortable, but my Milt Sparks Summer Special II is far more comfortable. The G27 can be worn at 3:30-4 for 16+ hours w/ no problem.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    you need to wear it alot to brake it in. when i got mine i was concened about it being stiff and it wasnt comfortable at all. I wore it as much as possible (sometimes empty) and in less than 2 weeks it was broken in nicely. now its the only iwb holster i use. depending on my daily activities (alot of physical or more sitting or just walking around) determines what position i will wear it at. its not to often i wear my owb holster as i like the concealment of the iwb. give it some time, wear it alot, even when just sitting around the house (if you dont normaly carry while at home) still wear the holster, it will get better.

    I wear mine using the bottom hole in front and 3rd. up from bottom on the rear. I have not problem with mine using my Glock G22. I like the glock as low as it can ride to keep the print from showing. The leather up around the pistol keeps it from poking into my side, much better than no leather up high. Good Luck!!

    Mine has the horsehide back and I use the top hole for the front and the bottom hole for the rear. This gives me a good cant and sets the pistol low on the waist. I tried a lot of options and this was the most comfortable for me.

    I have one for my G26 and love it.... as long as I don't have to sit in a car. Unfortunately, that means only certain occasions.

    I tried 3 o'clock carry but don't like it because it seems to rub on my hipbones. Thus, it's 4:30-5:00 carry for me. Like I said, comfy while standing or sitting in some chairs, but driving is like sitting on a brick.

    Looking for OWB for cold weather carry.

    I've tried the CBST and I prefer the Del Fatti ISP-LP I just bought. The CBST is OK, but the Del Fatti is great!

    Well it's been almost a week and I would still rate the CBST as ok. I have played with cant and position and I think that I have found the sweet spot, but still not totally comfortable. It doesn't hurt but I don't forget that I'm wearing it either. Should I try a saddle soap to soften the leather? The holster makes my Glock disappear with just a tee shirt, I just wish it was a bit more comfortable. I am open to any ideas I would really like to make this holster work for me.

    Are you new to cc using an iwb holster?
    If you are, it could be you're just not used to the feeling of carrying yet. (This does take some time.)

    Have you bought a good "GUN" belt yet?
    A "gunbelt" such as a "Wilderness Tactical" or a leather one from Crossbreed, makes a HUGE difference in your comfort level.

    Remember if you are not satified, you can send it back to Crossbreed. Believe me, someone else will be happy to buy it at a discounted price. Mark is a great person to do business with; and will gladly take the return.

    When I started using mine I wore a standard belt. This belt was close to 10 years old and I found myself adjusting the holster all the time and pulling the holster/gun up each time I stepped out the car. After I walked for a few minutes I once again found myself fixing the holster, pulling my pants up.

    Then I ordered the below and all has changed. I even ran across a street not that long ago without thinking and my Glock 27 stayed in place and the holster did not move. I no longer adjust anything. I no longer tug at my belt/pants. It just stays where it is supposed to be and yes, I can forget it is even there at times such as walking around the mall for a good hour. I know I'm armed I just don't feel the weight of it.

    The Belt made the difference for me.

    I got the Crossbreed SuperTuck for my Beretta PX4 Subcompact 9mm. When I first got it I was trying different things all the time looking for the comfort level I was hoping for. FINALLY I ordered the belt from Crossbreed and that made ALL the DIFFERENCE. The belt gives the holster the support that it needs.

    The 3 o'clock postion works best for me for walking, sitting or driving. It tucks nicely under my Starboard "Love Handle". I DO forget that I have it on.

    Good Luck
