    IWB advice for a P226 sig

    I just picked up a P226 with the .357 sig and 40 S&W barrels last night. I am looking for a decent IWB holster that I can carry strongside on my hip. Most of the time when I carry it it will be in a blackhawk serpa lock, but there are a few times where I would like it more concealed.

    So what are other 226 carriers using?

    I have a Ted Blocker #12 for mine. It has a thumb break and a single belt loop. The single loop can swivel on its snap so you can adjust the cant. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is not a "tuckable" design.

    Naturally I have to say a VersaMax-II IWB but I also like the Comp-Tac "Infidel" with the single belt clip and I like Kramer's IWB#3 holster for my SIG P-220's.

    I've been a big fan of Rosen ARG's for years, especially for full size guns like my P220. I find the offset loop more comfortable and easy to conceal, though lately I've started using holsters with 2 offset loops, similar to the ever popular VM-II. I like UBG's Canute for this.

    I've also got an Alessi PCH which I find extremely comfortable. It's the only IWB with the loops on the holster body that I use anymore, and I'm not sure why it's more comfortable than the usual Summer Special types, which I gave up on long ago.

    I dont carry a 226, but I do a 220 and 228. I've been very pleased with comp tac products.

    For the money you can't beat the Andrew's McDaniel II for $75.

    Top notch construction, and you don't have to wait 6 months. Usually 6 to 8 weeks.

    I can only wear around the house, but I have Gould and Goodrich leather IWB, very comfortable.

    I saw your post about the TT holster and it does look great. You mentioned earlier that you didn't care for the VM-II, but this looks like a clone of it. What made you change your mind? Just curious.

    For some reason the VM II was not comfortable at all when I wore it. I borrowed one from a friend for a week (it cost me dearly I had to help him re-model his house) and it just never got comfortable. When I put this holster on it felt like I didn't have one on at all. Maybe it was the leather used but this holster fits like a glove.
