    With 30 degrees of cant, you will need to wear the holster practically in the small of your back to get a proper grip on the gun without cocking your wrist. If this is what you wanted and what it was designed for, fine.

    I can't see any quality to it at all. Poor workmanship and it can't be made from good quality leather at that price. Personally I don't care for basket weave when it's done right and his isn't.

    You do pretty work even if it is basket weave, rcmodel. ;)

    OP Here, lesson learned

    Ok, I recieved the holster in the mail the other day. First, the good:

    30 degree cant really helps to conceal the Glock 19 when worn at 3 oclock, can still draw. Like the sweat guard

    Now the bad:
    Leather is as hard as a rock. Bad leather dye smell. When I tried to clean holster with a leather cleaning wipe (same I use on my sofa) it took the dye right off :what:

    I cant use this thing knowing that black dye will come off on my belt, clothes and gun, especially when perspiration is a factor in the summer. I took a chance because I liked the features, price and wanted to support a small business.

    I'm sending it back for a refund. Based on everything I've read I'm ordering a crossbreed supertuck. I dont like the idea of kydex, but if it will last and the holster is very concealable and comfortable thats what counts.

    I've got to agree with The Lone Haranguer, 30 degrees of cant should really put that holster far back. I'd really think a draw stroke from 3:00 with 30 degrees of cant would be quite odd.

    I can do 30 degrees at 3 Oclock. Its not the most comfortable draw but keeps the gun from profiling on my frame.

    so...

    Crossbreed Supertuck vs 5 shot leather IBS
    looking for: comfort, concealabilty, durability. I'm really close to ordering a Crossbreek Supertuck but the things that concern me are 1. clips instead of loops, this seems like it could be less secure and 2. kydex, which although thinner seems more brittle. Is it true that it wears the guns finish out faster than leather? (for a Glock 19)

    3:00 is the widest point on your body. Putting a gun there makes it stick out even farther. It is a good spot for a competition fast draw, with a straight drop holster, but usually not a good spot for concealment.

    Most will carry just forward of the hip or just behind the hip to use the hip as a concealment point.

    Wide spaced loops are usually handy for heavy guns as it spreads the weight out. Small profile holsters like the IBS usually work well for slim guys as they have less belt real-estate to place those wide spaced loops.

    Kydex will wear a finish faster than leather, but you have a Glock, I'd consider that a non-issue.

    Here is a nice review of the IBS by none other than Jason Burton of Heirloom Precision fame, the "B" in IBS.

    Not a fan of carrying at greater than 3 O clock. Would normally cary at 2 or 230 but with the 30 degree cant couldnt get a good draw with that holster

    If you are an appendix carry guy, you don't want a Crossbreed Supertuck. That is way too much holster to try and stick in front of your hip. I don't think the 5 Shot IBS is suited to appendix carry either as it has more cant than you'd want.

    Look for a straight drop, small profile holster, for appendix carry. Kydex is a good option for Glock's.

    Here are a couple of makers that may have some good options.

    Check out Theis holsters as well. (www.theisholsters.com)

    Tommy Theis (one man shop) makes "crossbreed style" holsters, WAY cheaper than crossbreed does. I own one for my Kahr CM9 and love it..

    I'm not a fan of the Crossbreed holsters, either.

    I have bought a couple nice Kydex holsters on Ebay for a good price. I bought a shoulder holster on Ebay that worked very well. I could not see paying a name brand price when I was going to have to take the holster to a seamstress regardless. By the time the seamstress was done with the holster you could use it for a strap to pull a truck out of the mud.

    I picked up a holster for my Ruger Blackhawk that fit it perfectly. The holster has six ammo loops on the front and an ambidexterous design with metal clip so the holster can be used IWB or OWB. I thought it was an excellent value for $13 shipped to my front door. The holster is similar to a Bulldog or Blackhawk in quality and design.

    ba ba booey,

    These fellers have all got lots of opinions on holsters, but I'll bet a dollar to a donut, they all got a box of holsters that din't work out just like I do.:evil:

    You'll have one too before you find the one that's just right..;)

    Enjoy the quest.

    +1 for Mr. Theis! I have one of his for my XD45, the quality and customer service are top notch. I have no problem concealing a 4" XD, and I'm 5'7" and 165lbs.
