    Thinking about OWB carry now

    Ok, so I've had my carry permit for almost 4 months now. I started carrying my XD40SC IWB with an Old Faithful Hybrid holster. It has been great and is really comfortable for all day wear but I've been thinking about getting a pancake OWB holster for the same gun or maybe for my full size 1911. I'm really wanting to carry my 1911. I just think that it would be more comfortable for me since I, let's just say I'm not skinny ;)

    So, any suggestions of a good cheap ~$50 or so OWB holster would be great.

    I like my blackhawk but I wish I could adjust the cant more. If you are thinking of open carry I suggest the serpa version as it has a retention system that offers some protection from an idiot trying to yank your gun out to teach you a lesson or worse.

    The above holsters or even a Fobus padle or Roto-paddle. And the Fobus is well under $50 I've been using one for a Walther P99 for over a decade. I've also used them for the Browning Hi-Power, 1911, PP series, SIG-Sauer P220, P225, P228, and H&K USP45 and Tactical. (The front sight had difficulty clearing the end of the holster so I stopped using it for that handgun.)

    These are durable, rugged holsters that won't cost an arm and a leg.

    After trying out every type holster known to man, I've gone 100% OWB. My 2 favorite holsters, that I chose because I wanted my G27 to ride high and tight are:

    With a 15 degree cant
    FIST, INC.

    With a straight up draw
    Rosen Product Line
    (click on EXPRESS LINE and scroll down to the UPL-EXP
    Raleigh... Where Barney comes to Party...

    Glock 27 or M&P Shield for every day carry (LCP for deep conceal when necessary)... Glock 23 for the home.

    +1 for bladetech. They have modular holsters, and their paddle holster is rock solid, and very comfortable. Of course since they are modular, you can wear it as a owb belt holster, etc.

    Im thinking of doing the same I was looking at the bladetech eclipse. It looks like a good option for concealed or open carry if needed. But I havent bought it yet will post a review when I do.

    My Browning Hi-Power in an old Blade-Tech. I really like Blade-Tech holsters.

    I just ordered an OWB holster from DM Bullard for my Kimber Pro CDP. I already have one of his IWB holsters and I am very satisfied with it so I decided to try an OWB.
