What is your favorite IWB CC holster, esp for sig p239?

Please tell me why it's your favorite and any other things I need to know about it in order to make a purchasing decision.

EDIT: I'm especially interested in your experience with CC'ing a Sig p239 IWB, but please don't restrict your answers to that gun. If you have a IWB CC holster that you just love, for any gun, I'd like to hear what brand and model it is.

I only have one IWB holster as I am new to concealed carry and have limited funds. I bought the DC Tuckable holster from Eric Larsen at HBE Leatherworks (http://hbeleatherworks.com/). I carry a full size M&P9. I think Eric did a great job. Order to receipt of holster took two months. Communication with him was good. He was very helpful in the process of choosing which holster and what features I wanted. I've worn it for a few months now and it has broken in well. It is probably as comfortable as any IWP holster can be and I like it. I would purchase from him again without hesitation.

I'm still waiting for my permit, but I picked up a Don Hume IWB with a clip for my carry holster for my Glock 23. The holster model is 715. I've been wearing it around the house getting used to carry and such, but I really like it. It was a good price, quality work, and it conceals well because my wife didn't even notice when I was carrying it around the house. The only way she figured out that I had it on was when she hugged me and felt it. :D

I have a Crossbreed Supertuck and it's great. It's very concealable and comfortable. (Even with a full-size Glock.)

I have three IWB holsters:
  • Crossbreed SuperTuck - Now that I've got the sweet spot (cant & position), this is a great holster -- very comfortable and I can tuck my dress shirt in over it. The only drawback is that it takes me longer to put that holster on in the morning and tuck in my shirt than if I use another holster.[/*]
  • DeSantis Cozy Partner - I've been carrying with this holster for nearly five years. Very comfortable![/*]
  • Uncle Mike's Sidekick IWB - Cheapie. Not terribly comfortable. Doesn't retain shape when the gun is drawn, so reholstering is tough. I use this one for bedside storage.[/*]
IWB isn't the only way I carry. I also use a SmartCarry holster and have been doing so for around four years. This is a great deep-concealment holster.

p.s. I don't have a Sig.

I use a Crossbreed Super Tuck with my Sig P220 Carry. It is very comfortable and very adjustable. I sit at a computer most of the day but still walk around a lot and have not found any problems with it. It is also comfortable when I am driving and is still fairly accessible. The only way I know that it is there is the weight of it on my belt. It does take a few days to find the "sweet spot" by adjusting it and moving it back and forth, but once you find that spot it is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this holster.

+1 on the CrossBreed Supertuck. I have had Uncle Mikes IWB, High Noon IWB, and by far the CrossBreed is the best and most comfy that I have used.

You just described my feelings (and holsters) exactly.

Get the Crossbreed!

I checked out the supertuck. Looks pretty nice. One question, though: what is "cant" ? CrossBreed's website says "The SuperTuck is ... adjustable for ride depth AND cant". (Sorry for the newbie question)

Cant is the ability to adjust the tilt of the firearm. You can adjust the cant (tilt) by moving a couple screws so the gun tilts a little forward, therefore making it a bit easier to pull your firearm out of the holster. I'll post a couple pictures that will show a little better what it means. They won't be anything amazing, but you'll get the idea.

The first picture is of a firearm with no cant. The second is a picture of a firearm with a forward cant. This is what they mean by adjustable cant. You can move the tilt of the gun to your liking. I hope this is helpful.

Wow, pictures and everything!!! Very Cool.

Is that a sig in those pictures? which model?

So, about this CrossBreed supertuck... it doesnt have a retaining strap on the top, does it? Does it matter? Have you supertuck wearers ever had a firearm fall out?

I've carried for about 12 years. Most of that has been IWB with a Bianchi 100 Professional. This holster has no retention, but has worked well... I just don't go upside down.

For a while now I've used a Blade-Tech UCH. This, like the Crossbreed Supertuck, is an IWB tuckable holster. For the most part I like it, but as I move the cant needs adjusting from time to time. This holster has only one belt loop.

After reading all the hype about the Crossbreed, especially on ucc, I decided to give it a try. Well, I'm a bit disappointed. It does stay in place very well and it is comfortable so I give it high marks for that. The problem I have had is that my magazine keeps getting released. The first time I noticed it was while removing my gun from the holster, I found that the magazine was not securely in place. After that I paid attention and felt the magazine release three different times while wearing it. I carry at about the 4-o'clock position. I'm not sure exactly what is different about this holster from others I've used over the years, but it certainly doesn't instill much confidence. So for a tuckable holster, my vote goes to the Blade-Tech UCH.

I haven't had the supertuck for 30 days yet so it may be going back, unless I can figure out how to remedy the situation.

What firearm are you carrying and how is the mag being released? Perhaps if you adjusted the cant, whatever is pressing on the mag release button would stop. Sorry to hear you are having problems. I have only heard good things about the Supertuck (I don't own one).

I carry a Beretta 8000F. The mag is being released because the leather panel is pressing the mag release button. I'm not willing to adjust the cant to fix a problem like this as the weapon's position is where it needs to be. It may be an issue of how tight my pants were at the time. If that turns out to be the problem then it may not be a big issue. I'll still have to do a lot of testing to prove to myself that it won't happen again, but the fact that it happened at all gives me an uneasy feeling.

Maybe cut a hole in the leather panel so that it doesn't press on the mag release? You'd want to make very sure that the hole didn't create a spot that could catch the gun during a draw, though.

Yeah, that's an interesting problem. Try out a few different things and let us know.

Oh, and don't cut the hole until you are sure you are going to keep it - might be hard to return afterwards :lol2:
