    My IWB Hybrid holster from our very own theis (Picture Heavy)

    I posted a thread a couple of weeks ago stating that since we moved to Indiana and OC was not as common here as it was in Tennessee I was looking for an IWB holster. I'm not a real fan of IWB and wanted something really comfortable. Tommy PM'ed me and suggested I give his holster a try. I agreed and he shipped one out that day for my G23. I got it 2 days later in the mail and have been wearing it for a week now, every day.

    It is very similar to the CBT except the hardware he uses appears to be much less likely to cause any discomfort at all. (You can see how smooth it is in the pics below) After wearing it for a week I can honestly say that I do not hate IWB carry anymore. This is a great holster. The leather is comfortable against bear skin (I have worn it this way several times but don't do this usually because the guns grip still is mildly uncomfortable) and I can't feel the hardware at all. The Kydex part is well molded and holds the gun securely and does not deform whne the gun is not in the holster. It stays open and allows for one handed re-holstering quite easily. It disappears under an un-tucked T-shirt and like the CBST allows the shirt to be tucked in as you can see from the pictures. The shirt I am wearing is one size larger than what I normally wear and even tucked in, the gun disappears.

    The longer I wear it, seemingly the more comfortable it gets. If anyone is looking for a well made and not expensive IWB holster (just $45) I would strongly suggest giving Tommy a try. PM him here: theis Profile He doesn't do this for a living, he tells me it is just a hobby but I think a career change could be in his future.


    Shirt tucked in...


    Shirt tucked from behind


    From the front (one size larger shirt than I normally wear, makes me look fat but who cares?)


    Surprise! There's a gun under there!








    Picture of the hardware Tommy uses. Very smooth, not discomfort at all.




    Close up of the clips he used. They hold the holster to the belt very tightly.

    Over all I am very pleased with this holster and I am planning on ordering several more from him.

    Looks like a CrossBreed knockoff. It's identical except for the clips.

    Just a quick update, i carried the Glock 23 in the holster all day today while at a family get together and BBQ. We played some catch with the football. The kids and I walked through the woods to the creek and looked for fossils (found some really good ones too) and my brother and I hit some golf balls around in the big yard at my parents house. The gun stayed put as did the holster. It was so comfortable I pretty much forgot I had it on.

    I am loving this holster.

    Yep, pretty much a Crossbreed clone. That's why it's so comfortable :) I do think I'd like those clips better, the CB ones are too long sometimes and dig in.
