I know this has been asked a million times BUT.. I recently purchased a Glock 19 and am looking for some IWB holster suggestions.
I plan to carry at 7 o clock (I'm a lefty). My concern is being able to sit down comfortably (all my other IWB carry has been at 9oclock but this is too big).
I wear both Kakhis and jeans (and shorts). I'm also a big and tall guy.
Hope that's enough information for some decent suggestions. Thanks.

Concealment Solutions is a great rig. I also have a crossbreed supertuck for my Sig that is super comfortable.

I've seen the crossbreed supertuck, is it comfortable to wear at 7/5 oclock and sit down/bend over? I saw on their website they take 4-6 weeks because they hand make em.

Yes, it is asked often and I always recommend the Raven Concealment Phantom. You can wear it IWB or OWB just by changing the attachments. It is a very thin and very light holster.
If you find you don't like that G19 carried IWB you still have an excellent OWB holster.

Thanks JTQ that looks pretty cool. Do you own one?

I have a Raven for my 1911. It is not my favorite holster, but it is my most valuable holster. The ability to use it either OWB or IWB is a huge advantage. It was the second holster I bought for the 1911 and it has really helped me understand what carry positions work for me and what doesn't. You can adjust the ride height and cant just by moving the attachments on the holster. While I'm sure it is geared towards the "tactical experts", I think it is a great choice for those new to carrying because it is so versatile.
I have the standard OWB mounts (they come standard) and the IWB Soft Loops and the IWB Offset Wings. I don't use the Offset Wing attachments much since I have the older style and they weren't very flexible and since they are so far apart you really need some flexibility to wrap around your body. I think they have fixed that with their new design. I primarily use the IWB Soft Loops attachment as the Raven is my only IWB holster. It works pretty well carrying the pistol rather high IWB which means you'll get a good grip for the draw and you won't have to worry about sitting on your barrel.

I sit at a desk or in the car most of the day. The large leather back of the Supertuck prevents the gun from digging in. I generally wear it at 4:00 kidney and find it very comfortable. I think it was delivered in 3 weeks.

Thanks guys, I think I'll pick one or both of those up and give em a try.

The G19 is my duty gun and I recommend the IWB/ race cut/ horsehide from THeis holsters. About 18 months ago they were about 40 shipped within 10 days. Today I believe he has higher prices and a wait, but definitely worth it. The CB ST I have is just not as comfortable for being in vehicles as much as we are.

I'm going to plug Theis as well. I have his cowhide holster for my G19 and it's really comfortable. The cut of the leather lets me get a good grip for the draw. With the trigger guard just at 3-4:00 on my waist I can sit in the car without problems.

Hmm another option to consider.
This is why I had to ask, some makers out there I've never even heard of :)
