    I carry my 9VE in a homemade IWB kytex type holster. IWB holsters with my shirt-tail out are the best way I've found for me to carry conceal.

    I carry my M&P9c in either an inexpensive leather clip, IWB, or, most times now, a De Santis cozy partner IWB as well, left hand.

    Both are comfortable, with the De Santis being a little more stable, by having more substance to it.

    Although they are not really "tuckable" holsters by nature, I can tuck a shirt in around these.

    If you have a good local gun store take your gun (unloaded of course) with you and try the different holsters. A lot of people buy holsters only to try them on and find out it doesn't work for them. Then you'll have a better feel for how you want to carry. Then you should buy the best you can afford. I am huge fan of Don Hume and all my local shops carry them. They have some of the best holsters for under $60. A good belt is a MUST also.

    Here is how I carry my 1911 A Don Hume 721 OT, I use the same holster for IWB and OWB (just remove the clips seen in the pic). Very comfy and I can carry all day. I believe the strong side hip in the 3-4 o'clock position is the best way to carry a firearm.

    This is exactly why I make my own. I can't seem to get a comfortable fit from any store bought IWB holsters. I can easily make one to the specs that I like, and for a fraction of the cost. The holster in the pics I posted earlier cost me about $10 and a couple hours to make. If you're interested in going that route, OP, I can give you a couple links to get what you need.

    If you would rather buy one, I have had good luck with Don Hume. High Noon also seems to be very highly recommended, but I have no experience with them.

    That is a great looking holster you made. For my 1911 though, the kydex just doesn't seem to fit quite right. I prefer all leather. I'd love a Milt Sparks or High noon too but I don't see me waiting 9 months to get it. I'm that impatient.

    That said I would like to see some more pics of your holster.

    Have you tried making your own, or just using store-bought kydex? I can tweak mine so that they are just snug enough to hold them still, or so that they have to be ripped out. The one I posted in this thread is a perfect middle ground. The kydex holds it tight, but the leather has enough flex to allow for a smooth draw. I do have some leather left over and I plan on trying my hand at an all leather rig for my 1911, once I pick it up this week (hopefully tomorrow). I'll have to take some pics of all my different holsters. I've made way more than I'll ever need. lol.
