Holster recommendations...preferably IWB

I finished my CHL class on Saturday and am doing the typical sitting on pins and needles waiting for the card to arrive.

I have a Fobus paddle holster for my Taurus PT145, but would like recommendations for that and an HK USPc.

I trust the HK more, so if I could find a comfortable rig, I'd prefer to wear that. The reality is that the Taurus is smaller, thinner and with better ergonomics, so barring anything new coming along, that will be my primary carry.

So...anyone have any recommendations on IWB holsters for these two pistols? Something I can wear at 1 o' clock and 4 o' clock?

I carry my HK USPc .45 in a High Noon "Down Under" with straps. Mine is made of horse hide, but that probably doesn't matter all that much. I've used it for about 5 years, but I don't carry all the time (can't carry at work). It's very well made and very comfortable. No retention issues.

You can see the holster at

I'm in your boat, but for a P229. So far I've looked at:

I've used an Uncle Mike's IWB (which is fairly comfortable, dirt cheap, and does the job) at 1 o'clock for a while, and I'd like something that distributes the weight more than on just one little clip. I'd also like something that keeps the hammer from digging into me when I sit down. Right now I'm leaning to the Versa Max 2, it seems to have quite a few fans. Also, verify that you're wearing a good belt, that will make night and day difference. If you find a good IWB for that USP, let me know.

My 1911 is a bit thinner than the ol USP but I carry in a UBG holster. UBG stands for Ugly Bald Guy. He made the holster for my 1911 and my brothers Kimber. Great quality and will not run you an arm and a leg.

I carry my PT-145 in a Tucker Heritage IWB very comfortably. I can't say for the HK but I am sure Mr. Tucker has one for it as well.

I have and really like the Blade-Tech IWB holsters. They're smooth, comfortable and have held up to several years now of daily wear. www.blade-tech.com All their rigs are gun specific and will fit like a glove. Hope this helps.

Well, in 10 responses you've gotten recommendations on 11 different holster makers. There's nothing quite like total agreement among friends.

Something I can wear at 1 o' clock and 4 o' clock? (Emphasis mine)

One holster for both positions is going to limit you to a vertical carry (no or neutral cant) holster. A canted holster is difficult to draw from carried at 1:00, but the vertical may not conceal well carried at 4:00. If this is not a problem for you, great, but if it is you may want two holsters. There is nothing wrong with this - you should have as many holsters as you need to be sure that pistola is always with you in different dress or social situations.

Unparalleled for the price, and Andy Johnson is one hell of a nice guy. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I have 4 of them.
