Sidearmor, Sidearmor, Sidearmor, IWB, IWB ,IWB. That's all I heard while searching for a holster about 9 months ago for my G27. Can't say I like it. I know, I know, I should have went to a store and looked at different kinds or tried some on, but I didn't. After eight months of wearing it I am fed up.

The thing stretches out my pants to begin with. Not to mention, I am physically fit so it digs into my hip bone like no tomorrow. It is just all around uncomfortable to me. Here in Utah and Wyoming, we just have to make a reasonable attempt to conceal the gun. So I can see why this is good for others, but I don't really care if people see the fact that I'm packing. Hell I have friends that tuck in thier shirts and where a duty holster. No one gives them any shit.

So my questions are: How many of you also dislike the Sidearmor IWB? and what is a good comfortable holster?

Can't really comment on the Sidearmor since i've never used it, but I have used other IWB holsters. From my experience, IWB's take the tradeoff of comfort for concealability. Now that its cold and you'll be wearing a jacket or at least heavier clothing, you can probably get by with a high riding holster that is close fitting. For me, a sweatshirt and this type of holster works great for my G26. Still working on summer concealment though.

I ordered a Fist K1 in the ultrathin kydex for a Hahr P9, and it is about as close as you can get to no holster at all. It honestly feel like you have the pistol with no holster on. It is less than a mm thick.

I use a Kramer #2 for my G19.

My head just can't get my brain to wrap around the idea of using a plastic holster, not even for a plastic pistol.

I know this isn't a holster, but I wouldn't trade my "fag bag" (waist pouch) for the world. Easy on, easy off, ultra-comfortable, complete protection of weapon, easy deployment, ect. Just can't wear it when you're "dressed up".
