    kydex is thinner than leather. check out rm-kydex, bearclaw holsters, dan hillsman holsters, comp-tac, cross-breed, and other makers of custom kydex holsters.

    Below - profile on a BearClaw Holster's "Hidden Asset" IWB. The only thing that could be thinner would be mexican carry or clip-draw neither of which are options that I will consider. A holster not only covers the trigger for safety' sake, but a holster also keeps perspiration and moisture off of the gun.



    EDITED - My sideguard is also very thin:

    Where are you carrying? Everyone's different, but it really shouldn't have much if any impact on your "butt" at all unless you're carrying waaaaayy back.

    Have you tried moving the holster to about a 3:30ish position or so?

    BTW......crossbreed supertuck here. Shorts and t-shirts year-round.

    +1. Was going to post something similar, but this says it well enough :)

    Another +1 for Crossbreed.

    Granted, I don't wear shorts, but it's still a slim holster.

    I carried my G23 behind my right kidney (almost SOB), but it seems like I should change to the hip. That's why it would press out on my pants. It just didn't feel right to wear my current holster on the hip, as the butt of the gun pokes my shirt out a little.

    Hey lance22, are you using 165gr. or 180gr. GS's with your P40?

    MNBurl, I'll give you a buzz if the holster I just purchased doesn't work for me.

    I just bought a Smartcarry and for shorts and tshirt weather there's no better way for a thin person to carry, IMO 5'9"-160 pounds so IWB really only works well in the cooler weather. I'm wearing the Smartcarry right now (M&P 45 - 4 inch bbl) and an extra 10 rd mag.....beautiful. Most comfortable rig I've worn. I can draw plenty fast enough so it's not a "deep cover" rig as some have described, although you aren't going to beat somebody with a nice OWB rig.

    Whatever....it works for me!

    I have the perfect holster for you. Go to the Tennessee Holster Company at gun-works.com. Their holster is thin, has a reinforced sweat shield and adjustable cant. It can be worn behind the hip, cross draw, SOB, etc. Check it out!
