Have it down to 2.
This will be my first time carrying. I will be carrying a 9mm Taurus 24/7 DAO (assuming I can find one.)
I will be wearing IWB at 3:30 (strong side).
I have my holster choices down to 2 (I think.)
FIST #K9-Kydex IWB Rounded front Interchangeable "THIN" with "E"-Kydex split J-Hook
Comp-Tac "The Infidel" with Ghurka strut.
I am really leaning towards the Comp-Tec as there are so many options for it.
My requirements are:
Must be Kydex, IWB, body shield not necessary, opening must stay open with gun out.
Are there any other holster opinions?
I carry every day in a Comp-Tac C-T.A.C. I've also got several mag carriers and a settable cant OWB holster from them. They make great gear and have great customer service. Go with the Comp-Tac, you won't regret it.
there are several rig builders here on the site, who can build to your specs...
just click on the holster sources links....
I voted other because I prefer leather over plastic, but if Kydex you must, I would go with the C-Tac. The single clip one will probably move around on you. Neither of them look like something I'd want inside my waist band for any length of time, though I have no firsthand experience with them.
I just got the infidel with the ghurka strut for my G30 it is a great little kydex holster. Great retention, fast, does a good job of dist. weight of the gun. It also does not move. I would def. go comp tac.
The Infidel is a great holster, and got my vote. But, leather is so much more comfortable to me, especially IWB that I had to at least mention that my personal choice is UBG Holsters.
I'd go with the comp-tac.. for the same reasons others have offered
Voted for the Comp-Tac, although my Infidel does not have the Ghurka set-up. I am reasonably satisfied with it. I have a MaxCon VI on order from Gary, and am REALLY looking forward to getting it. The Comp-Tac handles well, for non-leather.

I have 3 of their holsters and think they are great!
Of the 2, the Fist looks like it would imprint less on my hide. I'm 6'1 and 190 and not alot of cushion there. The harder kydex IWB leave a definite impression on me. I have a Blade Tech IWB with J hooks. A lot of people I know swore by that thing, I swore at it. After much personal customizing...that means a belt sander, I made it useful. I smoothed the high spots and ridges and removed the rear hook. It works well on hot, humid days when I have to IWB carry. I have 2 Davis Security IWBs that I use alot more. I really have to try a better IWB holster like Gary Brommeland's or similar type.
First, the pictured Fist holster is not a j-hook...a metal clip would be more effective!
I have 2 doz+ Fist holsters...great products!
I have both Kydex and leather. For a pocket holsters and an ocassional IWB, I might use Kydex, but for long term wear...I go with leather...much more comfortable.
Stay armed...stay safe!
I understand that. That is the stock pic of the holster.
