Anyways I would add this to the IWB holsters to check out: Crossbreed Supertuck. I've never tried it but they are very highly reviewed for comfort and quality in the various dedicated gun forums. Galco also has a cheaper copy cat model of this as well.
Took the words out of my mouth.

You WILL end up with more than one holster.

I have two Supertuck holsters, and while I don't typically use them (I prefer OWB carry), they are by far the most comfortable IWB holsters I've ever tried.

It really depends on where on your body you want to carry. Crossbreed, Bianchi, Simply Rugged and Deltech Force are some of my favorites.

Thanks everyone for their advice. I think I'm going to go ahead with Crossbreed as my first IWB rig. I've heard nothing but good reviews so far. They are pretty pricey, but to hear everyone else talk, may as well spend the money the first time around to avoid wasting money trying out a lot of other holsters that I'll never use.

Keep up the recommendations if you have any more though. I've been checking them all out as they are being posted. Still waiting for my permit to go through, so no immediate rush.

Don't know..... now I'm kinda taking a closer look at the Alien Gear holsters. They have great reviews to, and they cost about half the price of Crossbreed.

I was going to list Alien Gear, not from experience but from the # of positive reviews/suggestions for them I see on a S&W forum. High Noon Holsters seem to pop up there as well, but Alien Gear with it's solid pricing and warranty would likely be the 1st place i'd start with for my 1st holster. Especially if it is true that one ends up with multiple holsters in their 'collection'.

The only downside I've really heard about them is they have really inconsistent shipping methods. One said his took six weeks to arrive, others have said they've got them in seven or eight days. Most people say it takes awhile though.

I have a bunch of holsters. Then I bought a Crossbreed Supertuck and quit looking. I have four or so for various handguns. I would not have wasted so much money if I had bought a decent holster from the beginning.

There are knockoffs that are cheaper if price is an issue, but that type of holster is very good.

When I ordered my second and subsequent holsters, I asked for more retention by deepening the kydex imprinting, and was very happy with it. If I run or move around, I want certain things to stay put. A tighter draw is a small sacrifice to me. I carry Glock 23, 19, or Sig Sauer P226 or P229 in CB Supertuck holsters with or without lasers. FWIW, they offered to fix my first holster, too. Their service is good.

Check out Cabelas. I found a quality Galco holster for my Glock 32 for under $100. In store, in left hand none the less! My Galco is very comfortable.

Thanks for the suggestions! I went with an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 2.0 to start. We'll see how that goes. { if they ever decide to ship it, that is } But I heard the Crossbreeds lead time can be up to 11 weeks depending, so it seems like I was going to wait no matter what.

The Crossbreeds are one of the most popular holsters on the market. I cannot speak to it because I have not worn one, but I assure you there are a ton of quality holsters on the market.
