    My G30 rides in a Sidearmor IWB. My 1911 rides in an Aker Flatsider. I might get a Flatsider for my G30 but am too lazy to order one.

    I carry a G21SF in a Comp-Tac CTAC IWB rig. :eek: I am sure a decent OWB setup would be much more comfy, but I work with the mentally ill and concealment is most important. The bump in the front of my shirt is rarely glanced at, and if anyone gets too pesky I'll probably just tell 'em it's a TENS unit/battery pack for a spinal stimulator.

    What I wouldn't give to get away with OWB or open carry, but in the uber-liberal atmosphere of mental health one cannot take chances, plus this population is one where the old "inciting panic" argument might have something to it... :(

    So yeah, chalk me up as one who finds OWB to be more comfortable.

    I carry a G27 or G23 in a Don Hume IWB. cross draw. I have found this is very comfortable especially for driving.

    Crossdraw IWB is an interesting thought. Thanks for all the great responses guys.

    I carry a Ruger P90 in a Minotaur MTAC holster IWB. I don't even realize that it's there most of the time. More than once I’ve had to return to the house when leaving for work. I forgot about it until I got into my truck. I get a nudge from it when I get into a vehicle.

    Alright so obviously OWB concealed carry can be done but what's the best holster for it? I know "what's the best holster" is a pretty stupid question but i'm sure most of you know what i mean. What holster can you use to get away with concealing OWB. What holster will minimize printing?

    Well...thats honestly like asking what combination of mouthwash,toothpaste and tooth brush is the best?!?!

    There is no best holster, trust me...Ive been trying to make it for years.
    Look at what you want it to do......is comfort or concealment or reholstering or stability or tuckable or spring clips/snap loops????????? Your number one requirement? what is your second? Third??????????

    Analyze what you want it to do and look for the best you can find given the criteria you come up with........

    If your still lost, call me and Ill help steer you the right way.

    Shoot well and god bless
