Been carrying AIWB for years now using a Don Hume H715 with either a G27 or G29. Now I'm ready for other options! What holsters would you reccomend for AIWB? Anything below $60? This holster would be for the G29 as that is the CCW I carry most. Anyways, any opinions, thoughts, or otherwise input?

I wear an appendix holster. I removed the belt plate from a Serpa Level I and mounted a 8/9 ounce leather strip for the belt to go through. Holds it much closer to the body. A little radical butt to the rear. I strongly believe in ergonomics and that is the most normal draw position.
Since the early 80s, all my competition rigs were/are worn in that area.

I carry all 3 of my carry guns in Appendix IWB. I'm 6 feet tall and 145 lbs, so I don't have much other option for concealing on my belt.
I'm a big fan of High Noon holsters. Their straight drop holsters work great for me. They're around 60$, depending what model you want. The tuckable ones are nice if you need that feature, but the non-tuckable is a little more stable on the belt.
My daily carry setup is a Smith and Wesson 3913 in a High Noon Alter Ego. Very comfy.
If it matters to you, High Noon is based in Tampa, FL. Everything is manufactured in the US, and they have pretty fast turnaround time. Their satisfaction guarantee is pretty good too. I like the company. I have a belt and 4 holsters from them.

Google Dale Fricke. His AIWB rigs come highly recommend.

Pricier than you were looking for (gonna run about $100) but I hear lots of good things about Raven Concealment Systems (http://www.ravenconcealment.com/holsters/appendix-carry-rig-acr/acr-holster/acr-holster-glock)
Not to beat the drum too loudly, but I compared a Raven holster and a Dale Fricke holster side by side, then returned the Raven for a refund. No comparison IMO.

I have a kydex appendix holster from Alabama Holster that I like a lot. I think it was 65 bucks. Just be prepared to wait - mine took 4 months to arrive.

I just use my standard PJ's holster when I appendix carry. I have PJ's, one for my Shield and my Kahr PM9. It works great for both of them. The forward cant brings the butt of the gun up my mid line and is very light and comfortable. I am 6"2" and 205 lbs.
