    Most comfortable IWB for G27, J-frame?

    I currently carry a G27 Glock in either a Galco tuckable horsehide at about 12:30 or a CompTac Kydex with FBI cant at about 3:30 or 4:00. The Galco is by far the most comfortable but I'd like to have a strong side option that doesn't print too badly and yet doesn't dig into the side of my hip after a few hours of sitting in an office chair. It starts out OK in the morning, but by noon I find myself adjusting it every time I stand up.

    What I like about it is the fact that it goes on fairly easy and comes off pretty easy too (like when I go to the bathroom). I'm kind of put off by the IWBs that have two J hooks on either end of a holster, but I'm willing to consider anything that is reasonably priced and doesn't take weeks to deliver.

    Same question for a new S&W MP 340 Scandium ... what do you recommend for abdomen carry that is simple and comfortable and also something different for strong side carry. I have an Uncle Mikes pocket holster and it's fine for throwing into the car or a pocket that's big enough. I might consider a more substantial pocket holster like a Nemesis or a Fist kydex.

    My thinking is this ... for days when I can carry untucked or under a sweatshirt or long-sleeved shirt, I'd rather have the .40 caliber Glock and two times the firepower. On days when I have to tuck in my shirt or dress light, I'd like to carry the Smith. (By the way, I do have a Smart Carry, which has worked well with a 642 that I'm passing along to my wife when the 340 arrives.)

    Thanks for your insights and experience.

    I have Crossbreed Supertucks for my .380, 9mm and .40...They are the most comfortable IWB holster I have found.

    Which Comp-tac do you have? I have a C-tac for my G23 and my J-frame. I dont sit all day but I have found them very comfortable. I recently made a six hour drive wearing my G23 and never really noticed it. The J-frame C-tac is even better than the Glock.

    My Glock-36 rides in this... FIST, INC. ...easy on/easy off...rides very well. I'd order the body protector with it.

    Crossbreed. Insead of J-hooks you could use the clips that attach to the inside of your belt with velcro.

    Wormy - I have a CompTac Infidel for a G19 that I no longer own. My G27 is carried in a Side Armor IWB for Glock with a tuckable attachment (which I have never used). That's the one that becomes painful after a few hours of wearing at the computer and/or driving my car with the seat belt. It begins to dig into the top of my right cheek, which stays sore for several hours after I take it off.

    From a comfort standpoint, the Galco tuckable at 12:30 seems the best, even working at the computer. And, after I drop another 10-15 pounds, it should dig into my gut even less.

    I'm seriously thinking of getting a Mr. Softy for the 340PD and just sticking with abdomen carry for both guns. At least I'll always know where to reach. The only time I'll wear at 3:00 or 3:30 will be in a kydex paddle holster when I shoot IDPA or IPSC meets ... and if I find a nice vest that doesn't make me look too much like a 'contractor' who happens to have a CCW underneath.
