I've had great success with the following:

Comp-Tac Minotaur Kydex Hybrid

Mackenzie Enterprises Kydex Hybrid

Remora (clipless IWB/Pocket)

I carry a full size CZ 75 B or a CZ 75 Compact in the Mackenzie IWB or the Remora. My wife and I (infrequently) carry a Sig P238 HD in a Remora. I carried a Glock 30SF (45 acp) for about 2 years in the Comp-Tac IWB - it was very, very comfortable).

All these holster work great a concealing and comfortable carry for an entire day.

Good luck.

The holster is inside your pants rather than outside... More concealable

I have a Galco for my little SW wheel gun and a CrossBreed for my G27...

Just dont like em....

I can't stand mine. Not cheap by any standard and it sucks.

Maybe it will work better when I get older and need elastic waist bands plus a belt.

The problem is in South Florida its difficult to layer your clothing in the summer - so printing is an issue... Thats why I pocket carry a small 38 most of the time....

I've carried IWB my entire adult life. I have always carried single stack semi autos and mostly without a holster.

Try strong side small of back. Doesn't seem to get in the way there. Also, without a holster you can carry lower and thus won't print.

You should be able to get a belt clip for almost any gun for very little money too. I once got a universal clip that simply glued onto the gun with the supplied adhesive - it lasted almost four years before it started to come loose.

I have a Comp-Tac setup as well, it works well. I never wear it though.

I rarely wear anything more than a pair of board shorts and a t shirt so it's impossible to safely carry anything.

Way up North here, we bundle up year 'round, so IWB works really well.

Galco V-Hawk IWB with a Glock 19. Fits me, comfy.

Old school Milt Sparks leather for the last 20+ years for the CC Colt's 1911's, Clip my Glocks when not in Kydex, belly ban or ankle rig for the air weight 38's. Pocket carry as a last resort.
