    If I had a 9mm M&P shield or a .40 XD sub-compact I'd carry them in a Crossbreed MiniTuck in horsehide and a Crossbreed SuperTuck, respectively. That's only if I had either of those guns and carried them, though...

    Everything depends on what you want and what you want your holster to do. I personally carry G-code incogs for all my IWB carry guns (I have one for every gun I carry, Glock 17, 19, SW MP40 and Shield 9). The retention is amazing, the clips are nice and work well and you can get them with some fuzz for up against your skin. The King Tuk are nice too, but somewhat bulky as are the Crossbred holsters. I also really like the Kydex belt holsters and have a whole slurry of those as well. Try the Incog for daily carry. I sometimes use the appendix carry with it, but usually do the 4 to 5 o clock position in my pants or shorts. Works well.

    I carry a Dan Wesson CCO in a Crossbreed SuperTuck. It's very comfortable, even for a heavy 1911 pistol.

    I carry my sig p938 in a vedder lite tuck. My g19 in a stealth gear mini, and I use to carry it in an alien gear 2.0 it was crap. I have some cheap Amazon hostler for my girlfriends shield 9 which is actually not half bad. I use to carry a xds .45 in a crossbreed mini tuck. I didn't care for it too much. If I was going to AIWB i would go for for a teir 1 concealment axis holster.

    Where do you like to carry at? I personally like to carry appendix or at 2 o'clock. This gives the the option to fight over the gun if someone happens to see a print and goes for it where as a 4 o'clock carry potion you will have issues defending. Tier1 holsters has one of the best side car holster for appendix. It flexes in the middle to allow it to form to the body better. Plus you can order a holster with the ulti clip that attaches to your pants and not a belt allowing you to wear it in a formal setting with out exposing the belt clips.

    Your holster all depends on how you want to carry the gun and were on the body you want to carry. Hope this helps

    Years ago I got a DIY holster kit from Old Faithful Holsters for my SW 3913. It’s an IWB holster that looks just like one of those Crossbreed holsters, but it was much cheaper since you assembled it yourself. It’s very comfortable. I think Old Faithful either went out of business or got bought out by Alien Gear according to my recent google search. Anyway, for IWB I like the Crossbreed type of holster.

    I have two go to holsters. For winter OWB I use a Phalanx Defense System compact double belt loop holster. It fits many handguns including full size models as well as double stacks. For summer I go for both comfort and IWB with a "Sticky" holster.

    I usually carry some type of glock, 17,19,23. In the past I carried a Sig 229 but it was so heavy it became very uncomfortable to wear all day. I've had Aliengear & crossbreed holsters in the past but my current go to is a KSG Armory Synergy holster and I love it for appendix carry. I just received a G-Code Stealth but haven't tried it yet. I had been wanting to try an appendix carry holster for awhile but was afraid I wouldn't like it. I came across KSG Armory and found that they had a 100% satisfaction guarantee or a complete refund so I gave them a try. It's very comfortable and I can carry even with just wearing a tshirt.

    I was in the same boat. Had Alien Gear holsters until I found Black Arch. Have one for the G26 and G30S.

    I actually got a Vedder Rapidtuck for Christmas and been happy so far. Still trying to get used to carrying, but it’s much better.

    For my 380 i got a simple kydex holster from concealment express and I like it as well.

    I have the same Bodyguard with laser. I carry it IWB using the Desantis Infiltrator Air. It is very comfortable once you are used to it. https://www.personaldefenseworld.com/2018/01/desantis-infiltrator-air-holster/ I also have the S&W Shield 9 M2.0 with laser but haven't found a holster for it yet. I can take a pic of the holster with the bodyguard in it if you want.

    I like running kydex holsters. They hold their shape and don't collapse when you draw, which makes reholstering a lot easier. Plus they hold up to the harsh work and training environments I am in a lot of times. I run a few different holsters depending on what pistol I am carrying and what I am doing. My current duty one and EDC were made by a local company in Vegas called Zero2Hero. They were good quality but he moved on to other things and stoped making holsters. I use an IWB for my shield 9mm & .40 which are my EDC. For work I use a OWB with a full-size M&P 9mm just covered by my shirt. It works very nice and stays close to the body and is comfortable to wear.
    One of the guys that worked for Zero2Hero opened his own place named Gladiator Concealment. Some of the guys at work run them. I just ordered a OWB and IWB for my full size M&P from them and a custom one for my battle belt when running full kit. Hopefully they will be done next week. I personally like buying from local venders because I can have them customize or tweak the holster to my needs. Just my .02.

    I make my own. Leather work isn't as hard as you think. It is time consuming, but you get what you want. Especially if you are trying different guns. Even kydex is easy to work with if you use a heat gun. For what you guys pay for these plastic holsters you can easily get started. IMG_0393.jpgIMG_1161.jpgIMG_1816.jpg

    My daily carry is a Glock 43, I carry IWB with a Stingray V3 kydex from Clinger Holsters that I love. Someone mentioned below about IWB and needing bigger pants but when I am wearing pants that are a little too tight to stuff the holster in I just put the holster inside the belt, but outside the pants. Then I'm not tracking two holsters depending on my wear and I can always train with this one.

    I have a Glock 23 that I bought a shaped kydex holster for that is really comfortable, but can't remember where I bought it. It's kydex on one side but a slab of leather on the other. But I rarely carry the 23 anywhere.

    Following along since I haven't had many holsters but I also haven't found that any particular one is SO MUCH better than any other. All kydex and tried OWB and IWB appendix, currently with a Tier 1 that conceals very nicely and is fairly comfortable. BUT my biggest comfort gains have come from the Kore Essentials belt. Looks like a real belt buckle but functions like a big reusable ziptie, easy to pop it out a couple notches to sit down then tighten it back up when standing up and it doesn't look like too un-natural of a movement. They are also very sturdy making the draw more crisp, the cordura ones seem stiffer than the leather ones. They have deals for one buckle + two belts often.

    A good belt is mandatory... Great point @blackoutt. I refuse to dress "tactical" to carry a gun. I like the Duluth trading post holier than thou belt with a double prong buckle. I don't carry IWB. In the winter months I just wear a sweat shirt or jacket. In the summer I usually carry a S&W snubbie 38 in my pocket.

    Take a looks at LAG Tactical. They make a great kydex holster that can go from IWB to OWB by swapping belt clips. I have one 2 of them and really like em.

    This is my iwb I use daily and fits comfortably. I've had good luck with Azula holsters.

    Bravo concealment for my Edc gen 5 glock 19 mos with a tlr 1 hl. I use the bca owb during fall and winter I use the bravo DOS iwb during warmer months. I run all my holsters 3-430 orientation. To be honest the owb would work year round for me though. I'm not a lunatic about printing but the DOS obviously hides better. The holsters are reasonably priced and they run deals all the time. They do a great job with the kydex molding. When you holster there is a nice positive click. I have put the holster through its paces and have yet to have my gun fly out. I highly recommend them.

    I forgot to mention the pancake loops. Run the Owb holster with pancake loops and it sucks the gun tighter to your body.
