    Thanks for the detailed reply. You make a lot of good points. I think the issue I keep coming back to is that due to the fact that I work at a federal building, I can't ccw to and from work, so that limits my potential ccw use. I have to park on base so leaving in the car is not an option either. Thus since I won't use it as often as most, I'm afraid to sink big bucks into one until I realize what I like and dislike about holsters in general.

    Also, I'm afraid that if I get one with offset clips, instead of those Jhooks, the the greater complexity may deter me from using it.. as a 1st time CCWer..at least until I get used to doing so.

    I think that is where part of me wants to get a less expensive one, use it for a bit, and at least find out my likes and dislikes. Does that makes sense? I, like CoRoMo, am FRUGAL, and maybe am afraid to make a bad pick.

    I think I really need to go try some of these options on! ; )

    Nobody has mentioned the Black Hawk IWB holsters so I will throw in my 2cts. I have been using one for a couple weeks for mid sized Glocks and like it. The cost was about $50 and I got the model with the steel clip rather than the belt loop.
    The clip is very stiff and the steel ridge that is opposite the clip helps to secure it so it stays in place during the draw.

    Well you're packing a Glock so if you buy a holster and end up not liking it you should be able to get much of your money back out of it by selling it here on the Trading Post (lots of Glock packers out there so it should go quick).

    With the Crossbreed and the MTAC the clips are interchangeable so if you want to, for pocket change you can just order a second set of different style clips and swap them out (additional clips for the Crossbreed are between $5 and $10 depending on style, and additional clips for the MTAC are $8.50).

    Most of the time you carry that Glock 19 in the Galco 2nd Amendment you will be very uncomfortable, and especially if you don't get a good gun belt. That one J hook will be dragging on you all day long, and you will be constantly adjusting the holster. Also the pressure point on your body from that holster will be in a small area and uncomfortable. I know, I had one for a Kahr P40 which is a smaller gun than the Glock you want to carry.

    The stability from a holster like a MTAC or Supertuck will make your time carrying much more enjoyable, because you won't be tugging at your trousers every 5 minutes or adjusting your holster because it changed it's position when you sat down or stood up. The comfort will greatly increase due to the wider/bigger pressure point on your body(waist area). It will not be as nagging. Most people can tolerate pressure on there body as long as it is over a wide area. It gets really uncomfortable when the pressure is concentrated into a small area. But I will say this, the longer you do it the more your body becomes accustom to it. Just trying to supply you with some more information. Good luck with your search.

    ETA: The MTACs and Supertucks or any other holster like them are wide, but they have very thin profiles front to back. In other words, they are less bulky than most other holsters.
