    Hey guys, looking for suggestions for an IWB holster for an M&P9c. I've always carried in a OWB slide and want to try something new.
    Thanks

    Look into the Don Hume line. Quality holsters at a very afforable price.

    I've got a Texas Heritage by Tucker and I like it a lot. I'd like to get a Milt and a CB so that I can compare the three, but I'm very satisfied with the Tucker.

    raven concealment. or blade tech, you can't go wrong either way. the raven is thinner and better for carry but they are both great choices.

    I've tried a few holsters, and my go-to is the crossbreed supertuck (+3?).

    My brother uses one for his M&P9c and loves it.

    Thanks guys. I'll do some more research, but it looks like the Crossbreed maybe what I'm looking for. Thanks again.

    I know it's on the cheaper end and many people claim that you get what you pay for, most of the time I agree. I had been given the same advice on my IWB and since the suggestion was so cheap I figured that either way, I wouldn't be hurt too bad financially even if I didn't like it. Either way, I bought the HighNoon Split Decision, $42 including S&H. I love it for my M&P40c. This one has the 15degree cant and you're still able to tuck your shirt in if you want, they have another identical without the cant, but this has been nothing but perfect for me. That being said, I don't have a lot of experience with the ultra-high end holsters but this has been confortable even when wearing it for 12+hrs. I generally wear it in the 3:30 position. I'm sure there are better IWB's out there, but this has worked great for me. Just giving you a cheaper option to look at.

    The Comp-Tac and Crossbreed seem to be very similar and both seemed to be preferred over most others. Seems like you should just pick one of those two and get which one you like the looks of the most as they both seem to get amazing reviews.

    I'm going to go ahead and speak out AGAINST the crossbreed. Everyone on here loves them, and I just don't get why.

    Based on recommendations here, I bought a crossbreed for my G27. Honestly, it was a waste of money. It's a royal pain to get on, and it's not any more comfortable than my basic Don Hume iwb holster. In fact, I think it's actually LESS comfortable, and I think the gun feels heavier in the crossbreed than it does in the Hume.

    I will say I can draw from the crossbreed very quickly, but that's really the only good thing I have to say about it.

    This $18 don hume holster: http://www.donhume.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=67_368_124&products_id=789 is super comfortable and tucks my g27 nice and tight against my body.

    Same here, I've used one and just don't see what people think is so great about them. :confused:

    I'm a leather person so I've never considered CrossBreed and the like, but I believe CB have 2-weeks buy back guarantee? That's a very good gesture, at least you can return it.

    Well some may not like them, but CrossBreed rocks in my book.

    This is the most people I've ever seen talking about not liking CrossBreeds. I can certainly say that for a guy built like me (6'1" @ 160 lbs), the Supertuck is a godsend. I definitely haven't tried them all, but all the other IWBs I have tried are either super uncomfortable, always drifting around, or ride weird and print really bad. Adjustable depth and cant makes a big difference for me.

    I've tried several, I got the Crossbreed and I'm DONE.

    Hey thanks everyone I ordered a crossbreed. When it gets here I'll let you how I like it. Seems like everyone has their own favorites, and that's what makes life interesting. And sometimes maddening. Thanks.

    I thought the same thing about the crossbreed initially, but you gotta give it a few weeks of wearing to break in. Initially it wasn't very comfortable, but once it broke in and gets that personal fit it really made sense to me.

    That said, I used to carry in a cheapie like the $18 don hume link, and it wasn't bad. The single clip is very nice if you need to pull the whole gun/holster often to go into 'off-limits' places. For me, it just tended to shift a bit when you changed positions that required a bit of adjustment often.

    i once carried my g27 in the crossbreed for an evening out with the fiancee and it got pretty uncomfortable. walking across large parking lots, through big stores, etc., just didn't feel good at all. i'm more comfortable doing that with the cheapie don hume :eek:

    in fact, that experience bugged me so much, that when i know i'll be out for an entire afternoon or an entire night, and am not wearing pants conducive to pocket carrying the g27, i'll carry my 442 iwb, or my lcp in a pocket, instead :eek: i hate to downgrade firepower that much, but, man, was i uncomfortable that night.
