I've had no luck finding a good IWB holster for my new G23. Most ride far too high or aren't clip-on. So I dug around in my ample stores of old holsters and found an old Brauer Bros. IWB. It's not perfect at this point, but I figure with stiff leather protectors sewn in on the sides of the trigger and a rention strap it will be excellent. Any other ideas? Problems I'm not seeing?
Other than that the cheap spring-steel clip will probably not retain your holster during a draw. IWB holsters need to have either an inverted clip or a loop that snaps around the belt.

Looks like a bit too much room for bad things to happen around the trigger guard...

+1 I'd add some leather around the trigger otherwise ... glock-boom! :evil:

Agreed. Trigger guard could use some more coverage. It's a lot of fun to have a holster you have made yourself. Congrats. One other thing is that the barrel protrudes from the bottom of the holster. This could conceivably cause a little more crud getting into the gun. Also, are you sure you have enough clearance above the gun's front sight for a clear draw? Any chance it could get hung up? Since the material is not stiff, it could fold up and catch up.
nice looking holster.
