    I carry concield and have a Glock 26.
    Before I had a Kel Tec P11 and just a cheap IWB canvas like holster but it wouldn't stay put worth a crap!

    I wanted a CrossBreed but didn't want to wait and didn't really want to pay THAT much for a holster...
    So I found "theis" holsters. Look JUST like the crossbreed but get them sooner and cheaper!

    It takes some getting use to.. but stays put very well! Comfy too.

    Can't really tell i'm wearing it either!

    From the back you can see a little bulge with the tight shirt but probably couldn't tell it's a gun.



    What do you have? Review on it?

    I personally have a variety of holsters for each gun that I carry...i dont like to limit how i carry

    Don't have a supertuck or anything similar because I dont typically have a need for such a holster

    More often than not I have something in a pocket or an OWB with some sort of retention device

    I have several pocket and cheap IWB that work for me, along with a Bianchi Carry-Lok and a handful of other kydex and leather OWB stuff plus a nice ankle holster that works for several of my guns

    Nice!!!!

    Yea no way I could spend that much on a holster!!!! And the holster I have now with the glock is enough weight.. I have issues with my jeans staying up in the first place. Adding a gun (even with a belt) I still have to keep pulling them up. Apparently I need more of a backside.... :eek:

    I probably should have gotten a .22 to carry since it would be lighter and smaller so I wouldn't need a supertuck kind of thing. But with limited funds and the love of shooting a 9 ;) actually I like bigger cal but only in full frames.. can't shoot any compacts bigger than the 9mm :( don't do well at all.


    45acp - I always wondered what advantage is there to the horse hide?

    uhm not really. It's not on my side but not on the small of my back. Kinda in between but closer to my side than anything?

    I had to change at the gym and put it on and on my way out no one seemed to notice it. I'm pretty sure one of them would have said something if they did. (was going to meet someone off of craigslist.. always carry when meeting those I don't know)

    Trust me there worth it, plus it can take up to 6 months to get one and they dont charge you till they ship so you can save up... Mind me asking what kind of belt your using? if your just using a normal leather belt that is gonna cause alot of your carry problems. Think about it this way, you didnt skimp on your gun, dont skimp on your carry set up...

    The one you posted doesnt meet what I need for the most part

    Carry-Lok has retention other than just friction...I use this one for both work and off-duty and unlike the average CCP holder, my incidents could quickly turn into foot pursuits and I want to make sure that gun is still in the holster when I'm running

    Thats why I like pocket carry too, because I know it's not coming out unless I want it to

    If you've ever been in a struggle with a guy and FELT him pull up on your gun, you'll thank whatever God you follow that you had more than just friction retention



    I'm not saying that how anyone else carries is wrong, but I need something different
