    I have a Kahr MK40 and am looking for a good IWB holster. Hoping to get your ideas on which ones to consider.

    That and some forum searching should get you started, you can find pictures and opinions on just about any model of holster through search.
    Skip the generic holsters, get something molded for your specific gun.

    My favorite holsters by FAR are Peters Custom Holsters. They are a thin kydex holster with just the right retention and its super comfortable for carry. I actually glue a piece of thin leather on the back of it where it contacts my body. It feels like a leather holster on the hip but has all the advantages of kydex. The thin kydex is SOOOOO much less bulky than thicker kydex or leather. My holster has seen several years of carry and several thousand presentations. My holster AND the weapon both still look like new. I couldn't ask for more in a holster. I'm ordering another for my new P220.

    UBG all the way!

    Nate makes some of the most comfortable and affordable custom rigs that I've worn. I have a Canute for my full-size Kimber Classic and my EDC Glock 27.

    I sometimes use a comp tac minotaur holster for my pm9 and had been very satisfied with it.. UNTIL NOW.
    I JUST. discovered that it's possible for the kydex part near the trigger guard to get hung up on the trigger while reholstering. I was even able to dry fire the gun by pushing it downward. it doent happen easily, but it shouldn't happen at all. I don't know how comp tac's other holsters for other guns work, but mine has got me pretty upset/worried. as I said, I just discovered this and haven't decided what to do about it..

    I don't know if you can see what's going on here, but if gun goes in crooked, the kydex flap by the trigger could get lodged in the trigger guard.. theses minotaur holster frames should be recalled. (this one is for a kahr pm9)

    Another vote for CrossBreed.

    Jason, if you draw enough, both leather and Kydex will "polish" your gun a bit. However, I wouldn't worry about that in a carry gun.

    I am solidly in the Kydex camp. I've tried leather holsters and the ability of kydex to be much thinner than leather yet retain its shape and retention are superior unless you spend a LOT more for a really well made leather holster (yet it will still be thicker than the kydex). I've been carrying my M&P in a sheet kydes holster for several years now and I can't see any holster wear on it at all. My LCP is carried in my Alabama Holster pocket holster. I just ordered a Galco Triton Kydex IWB for my LCP. I plan on carrying it IWB on my strong side or on the belt weak side in BUG mode. I'll let you know what I think of it when I get it.

    Edit: The kydex holster I carry my LCP in has caused a bit of holster wear on the muzzle end of the slide. Kydex will cause some finish wear if grit is getting inside of it. The pocket is a harsh environment for a pistol. The upside is that kydex is very easy to clean and getting grit out of it is easier than leather and you won't damage the kydex by cleaning it out.

    I can't enough good things about this holster and the price is great too.



    I'm small, 118lbs and IWB and concealed carry has always been hard. This holster makes it easy.




    I don't use mine for LE, I'm uniformed, but I told my two friends who work undercover about them, they bought them and love them.

    Gentlemen, I have been encouraged to join the club and advertize. I am in the business of making custom leather holsters. If you go to ebay and look up "kiddingmyself" under leather pocket holsters, you will find me. I have sold over 200 holsters in the past 6 months and the only negative was from a lady who bought a pair of my wifes running shoes. Never one negative on any holster. I can make any type of holster, and if you are not satisfied, I guarantee a full refund. I appreciate the opportunity to serve. I am moving into the IWB category and am posting a first holster tonight on ebay for the LCP. The next will be for the keltec pf-9. Please look me up,
    thanks- Mr. Hard Pressed

    Do not over look the Kholster, it works just as well as the crossbreed. Mine is is just as comfortable as my crossbreed and a lot cheeper. You can modify it as much as you want with out voiding the warr. Jimmy is great to talk to and has 90 day return policy.

    These folks deserve your interest

    Remora holsters are a new company that manufactures in Florida.
    The products are intended as IWB , and due to clipless design could also be used as a pocket holster.
    Lifetime warranty. Fast shipping. Very reasonable pricing.
    Just may be the answer to your needs.

    How much do you want to spend?
    Do you need tuckable?
    Can you wait for a custom?
    Leather or Kydex?

    You've gotten good suggestions. Also depends some of the above.

    Hey Mrhardpressed.

    Was looking for a pocket holster and checked out your offerings on Ebay. Your site says you do not accept returns. How's that a guarantee? How does that work? If you sold 200 hundred holsters in the last 6 months, I don't understand how that could be if you just offered up your first holster October 25th less than a month ago. Were you selling them somewhere else? I was looking for feedback on the sales of those holsters but I don't see feedback for those sales on EBay.

    I kinda thought custom holsters would be original design holsters. All I see is holsters copied from other makers. I see you are now offering a holster that is copied from the Uncle Georges Wallet Holster. Is this one of your custom holsters?

    I guess there's no problems with the original holster makers so can I get you to make me a knock-off for same low price as the other holsters? If so, I'd like for you to make me a Bear Creek Holster with the snap on back. Those are really nice but pricey! Maybe change it a little so it won't look like you copied it, sorta like you did with the UG holster. Wouldn't want you to get into any negative business with the maker. http://www.bearcreekholsters.com/

    Thanks for clearing this up for me. Your prices are certainly good and am interested but the "no return policy" isn't helpful. Please let me know if you can help me with the Bear Creek Holster. Great prices! I might buy 2 of them. I like the Bear Creek IWB holster too. thanks, les

    Oh forgot to ask. Will you be making the Crossbreed Supertuck in the future? thanks
