    Someone else mentioned it and I wonder if some sort of leather treatment would help to soften the leather for more comfort and help get rid of the noises. I do remember from reading the information sheet that came with mine about their set-up for the level of retention and how to change it for a more personalized feel. The process involved using a hair dryer to heat and soften the kydex around the trigger guard and/or ejection port to create more retention.

    Baby powder stops the creaking until the leather is broken in. I started buying holsters from Theisholsters.com | Home | Custom IWB Holsters because Crossbreed refused to offer plain clips for their holster. Concealed means concealed, no matter how small and unobtrusive they claim the crosses on their clips are.

    There are alternatives.

    I will always support a company that stands by their product like Crossbreed does. I have the mini tuck for my P238. No creaking retention is fine. Put mink oil on it 3 night straight before carrying.

    I have tried moving this thing all over the place and just can't find a place where it fits ME right. I get made every time I bend over. I always bend at the knees I had my wife take pics of me to show and you can definitely see. I will say every time I have been busted was by a chl holder. I honestly think 99% of the people don't pay attention to anything. I just like my old faithful better.

    I've never been a fan.

    I don't understand the perceived need to have half a cow attached to a CCW holster

I know I should not have done that and it voided my warranty but I expected it to alot better and not have to return it. I carry it right above my back right pocket same place I carry my m&p9c with my old faithful and have never been called out. So of anyone wants a crossbred ill ship sell you one for $50 tyd!
    The statement in "bold" is a flat out lie!

    Crossbreed offers several styles of clips. You do NOT have to use the standard clips!

    Love my CBST. After almost a year, I decided to send it back to them to get the combat cut, and to have the retention tightened up a little bit. After about 3 days without it, I got a package in the mail, with a BRAND NEW super tuck for my gun, combat cut and tighter retention than my original one. I have to break in a new horsehide to fit my hip, but that will be a labor of love.

    I wear a CBST for my SR9c, and it has performed great. No issues whatsoever. I have spoken with them via phone several times( prior to ordering) and found them to always be helpful and courteous. I like 'um.

    Hate is a four letter word. It also has a clear definition in the dictionary even if it may be used as slang. I don't actually "hate" anything or anyone. If I was to hate something or anyone.....it would crush me and who I am. I do however dislike many things.
    Personally? I simply can't work with any of the hybrid holsters I've tried. It's no picnic for most finding the absolute best holster. Life and disappointments kind of go hand in hand. Over the years, I've shipped out many of my own personal holsters for others on the forum to try because I know how difficult it can be to nail it down to what you want or need. Makes a lot of difference. Matter of fact......it makes the difference in those who have permits and those who actually carry on a daily basis. I could honestly say that I wouldn't be very surprised with real statistics on that subject. Kind of like knowing that only 20-25% of registered voters are going to turn out for the big election this year. My local election turnouts here were extremely pathetic last month. All of us as a nation have more serious problems to think about other than who you "hate". Looking at the big picture seems to make your issue diminutive at this point.
    Say....since you're in my home state......just drop me a line whenever you are looking for advice or need help with a project. I might have some good suggestions for you on holsters for your main carry position. I've been down a lot of dirt roads myself and I've also had the opportunity to observe a few Guinea Pigs. :)

    Careful to avoid compromising the cover of the trigger guard or good retention, I have modified the bodies and/or clips of the hybrid and Kydex holsters I use: CTAC, MTAC, and CBST. The holster should allow both a full grip without interference with the hand and also proper cant for it's location around the belt. Printing while bending can be eliminated by moving the holster closer to the hip, giving it more cant, or using a gun with a shorter, thinner grip frame. Velcro clips prevent the holster from sliding around the belt, and they are concealed behind the belt. Fairbairn wrote that everyone ought to make their own holsters, but with the many good designs available, only slight modifications are enough for comfort and accessibility.
