    I don't know about the "best" for you, but until I got my CompTac MTAC for my Glock 27, the best for me was a CompTac CTAC. Great quality, adjustability, and fast shipping.

    That's like asking what's the best shoe for your foot. Can't be defined so conveniently.

    I bought a comptac "infidel" for my G23... I havent used any other IWB since.

    There is no "best" as there are tons of options out there.

    My CompTack CTAC has a kydex sweat shield that digs into my side if I carry the holster empty for any length of time, it that's a concern for you, but it offers easy holstering of the gun, and stands up well to daily use. I prefer a leather back with a kydex sleeve attached to it. You get the comfort of leather combined with most of the reholstering easiness of kydex.

    Thus, my G23 carries well in "The Answer" model from Tucker Gunleather, a two-clip tuckable IWB.

    If cost is a concern, check out Don Hume (mentioned by another in this thread as well). I carry my Glock 26 in a DH IWB holster that was $25. To me, for $25 it is an outstanding value, and I have one for each of my pistols.

    Exactly what I have, for exactly that gun. Works great, and comfortable. Personally, for the Glock, I wouldn't consider anything else but kydex. Prefer leather for my SIG

    Yes there is... the problem is, we don't all agree on what it is!

    When I carried a G-23 I used a Milt Sparks VersaMax-II and it was very sweet indeed!

    But I do confess prejudice, I carry all my CCWs in a Milt Sparks VersaMax-II!

    Here's what it looks like with the Glock 23:

    Funny, the very first time I put on my Infidel, I had exactly the same problem. but never again since.

    Go figure.

    I have a few iwb holsters for different guns and by far the most comfortable has the quickest draw as well. It's a crossbreed super tuck.

    Of course everyone is different in their opinion and what works for them may not work for you.

    Arguably, one of the most comfortable, has a large following, is in high demand, and for me... The best there is, would be the Brommeland Max-Con V or VI which can be bought from Coal Creek Armory here. Coal Creek's website is currently under redesign, but you can get their address and phone number from front page that is currently up and running.

    Gary is no longer taking orders direct from customers due to back-log and health issues but still has his website where you can find the models he makes and learn about his methods and craftsmanship. His holsters are now being sold exclusively through Coal Creek Armory. You can find the Brommeland website here.

    If looking for an excellent OWB holster, check out his Def-Con holsters! I especially like the unique way he cuts the belt slots which aids in keeping the butt of the gun snug in, close to the body!

    While I do plan on trying other great custom holsters, I will buy more Brommelands for all my carry guns as long as they are still being made!
