Iwb Holster A Must For Ccw
I am about to start carrying my Glock, but cannot do anything until I find the right IWB Holster.
It MUST be an IWB. Shirt must be tucked in at all times. No choice. Also, must be able to drive at least an hour in the IWB condition. I see guys talk about leather/leather and then others talk about leather/kydex.
The belt is not an issue. It will be the right thickness. Most of the time I will be in dress pants or Docker type pants.
This is one of those times I need to get it right. I do not have the money right now to experiment.
Thanks for sharing with me what you have found that works for you. This website has been a tremendous asset to me.

Keep in mind that your body shape, your preferred carry position and angle, and your comfort level are what drive the "right" choice. If you cannot experiment, you're left with one choice: find an actual holster you can try on, then buy it if it fits and works well. Otherwise, you need to be able to try out some models.
If cost is a serious issue, consider the Fist line of holsters. They have several models on the cheap, but they are a very good value. I picked up a Fist #17A-1 IWB for my CZ P01. It fits well, carries easily for me at 3:30 to 4 o'clock on the hip, is comfortable for long drives. Costs $49 plus shipping, plus options. If you cannot find a place that has a variety of holsters in stock that you can physically try before you buy, this might be one option. Several are ones they advertise as being suitable for tucking in the shirt completely, over the gun.
Look at the bright side. If purchasing a holster for a Glock, there will always be someone to buy it used, from you, if you decide to go another route. If you pick a basic holster with no strange alterations, that's almost guaranteed.
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

I would suggest something adjustable , because the angle of the holster is a personal thing. Maybe this?

I'm not a fan of kydex, but in this case I'd suggest a CompTac CTAC or MTAC with velcro clips and a 1.5" Belt if you are wearing Dockers.
I have a CTAC and use it when I have to carry my Glock 19 and I want to carry it on my "weak side". Since I have a gun accessable to either hand this happens more often than you might think, the weak side carry that is.

That doesn't sound like much of a challenge. I went to Church yesterday morning, neatly dressed and my shirt tucked in, and then went out to lunch before spending the rest of the day doing a host of other things with my Springfield Ultra Compact in a Galco Ultra Deep Cover holster. Driving is no different from anything else.
