I know that you are right. I'm sure within a year I'll have whole drawer full of different types of holsters from different manufacturers. With all things, I try to do as much research as possible and find the best happy medium before jumping in...holsters are no exception. But, again, I believe you're correct.

Just last night I was looking at this exact holster. Looks like a great fit. Thanks for including the pictures, too. The way you dress is very similiar to how I dress so that was very helpful.

I've begun my holster collection in seek of the perfect match of comfort, concealability, fit, quality, and price for each of my carry guns. Then I need an IWB and OWB for each. This is going to be a long process. There are so many quality holsters out there to choose from. Good thing I am determined!

I really think it depends on a few different things...first for me is comfort, second is concealability, and third is summer vs winter...some weapons are to large and bulky to IWB carry in any holster and in summer they print really bad. In cooler weather condition I OWB carry in a very comfortable holster covered by a light or heavy jacket. In the hot summer I IWB carry. I also carry a sub-compact 9mm and a 380. Both very easy to conceal anytime of the year or clothing options.

Milt Sparks Versa Max and their Summer Special II will handle the IWB duty.
Same outfit's 55BN covers the OWB stuff.
When I first started carrying many years ago, OWB was all I'd do. Now, IWB takes 90% of the load.

It sits high enough with the pants I wear (wranglers) that it doesn't stick out MUCH when I sit down. In a restaurant I just try to sit in a booth, or my back to a wall if I'm worried about it.

There are times for either IWB or OWB...in FL both must be concealed. With lose clothes, it's not a problem
I do not, however, like holsters where the tip of the firearm is exposed, as in the Galco Jak Slide.OMO

Tip: Clothing choice matters.
Keep in mind that it's entirely likely that not all of your clothing will work with your preferred mode of carry and selected holster/handgun combination.

Some styles, patterns, colors just won't work quite as well as others. The only way to see is to try them out, perhaps also getting someone else's feedback on whether it's "printing" with that combination.
For example, I've got some pants where IWB/OWB is fine, but pocket carry is impossible, based on both the pocket design on those pants and how little extra room there is around the pants area for a full holster/pistol. Whereas, most of my pants have come along after I began carrying, and I have acquired them with a specific eye toward suitability for accommodating IWB, OWB and pocket carry ... if I could get all of those in a single piece of clothing. Same with jackets, and certain shirts. Some work, some don't, but ones that I have purchased since carrying have been purchased with an eye toward suitability with carry.

I'm sticking with IWB. I've used Blackhawk and Crossbreed. Like them both for several changes of guns over time.

I like you and your attitude, because you stand by your man. Good on ya.

The holster question itself has been too thoroughly answered over the last 100 years to be discussed, tho! It's like asking which colour of the rainbow we like :)
