Modify a VMII or get a new holster made?
Here's the deal. I love my VMII for for my Glock 19/26. I find myself carrying in that holster over all of the other millions I have available to me.
However, I am a skinny, bony woman and extended wear starts to REALLY hurt my hip. I do not have this problem with OWB holsters because they aren't putting so much pressure on my hip. But with IWB's, if I loosen my belt then there isn't enough tension on the holster to draw properly but I desperately need some padding between the holster and my skin and bones as I have (and do) get bruised from long-term wear.
I've decided one of the best ways to go would be to add some lamb's wool to the backside of the IWB holster.
Wool is naturally moisture resistant as well as resistant to mold and fungus and I'm not a big "sweater" so I don't think I have to worry about that. Not to mention, lamb's wool is SUPER soft and very fluffy/cushiony.
If anyone has any better "cushioning" that would be against skin I'd be very willing to hear about it.
However, I know that the VMIIs are some awesome holsters and if I modified it and didn't like the results I'd be effectively killing a very expensive and beautiful holster.
Should I try to find a holster maker who is willing to make me a custom IWB with a cushioned backing or go ahead and mod my VMII?
