    BTW: I have used a pair of compression shorts with the pocket for a sports 'cup'. The pocket for the cup is inside the shorts, so it takes lots of practice to present the gun. It is kind of inconvenient when sitting down, too. However nobody looks at your 'private area' as much as they might notice a bulge at your hip. Other than your partner/spouse/significant other, not many people will touch you there. It also works well for the ladies, too. It's another option...

    I suppose I could just go buy all new pants and shirts to fit the crossbreed.
    Another thing about the super tuck I'm not wild about: it creaks like an old house with every step. Doesn't matter how invisible it is (or isn't, it bulges pretty severely on an average size guy like me 5'9", 160), my wife can tell the days I'm leaving with the supertuck without opening her eyes.

    The horsehide is worse about that than the cowhide is. If you put some self stick felt pads between the clips and the leather it will reduce that. If you treat the leather regularly with something like mink oil it will reduce it even further. I ordered my second SuperTuck in horsehide because it was supposed to be better resistant to sweating in a hot climate. I now have four SuperTucks and that is the only one I'll ever own in horsehide, for the very reason you mention. Even though I have greatly reduced the creaking noises, the creaking is still annoying at times. Fortunately for me, I no longer carry the gun that holster is made for. But even with that minor drawback, I have yet to see any holster that even comes close to the SuperTuck in overall quality, not even the numerous SuperTuck clones that keep popping up.

  6. I too like the CBST but sometimes I still old school it depending on the weapon and just carry stuffed inside the waist with no holster. I know this will draw heat from some but it is what it is.

  7. I just ordered a Crossbreed minituck and with all the wonderful things said about these holsters I'm eager to get it.

  8. I have been using a N8 squared to carry my G30 in shorts and casual wear. Honestly the most comfortable holster I have ever used.

    I have a kholster and a couple Ace holsters (both OWB, and IWB). Depending on the clothing, and season I'll select the holster that works best. Alot of times I just slip my TCP in my pocket, and don't even need a holster.

    try wrapping the UNLOADED AND CLEARED gun in plastic wrap / Saran Wrap, insert the UNLOADED AND CLEARED gun into the holster, use mink oil or baseball glove oil to soften the leather. Once the leather is soft, put the gun on as you normally would and wear it all day with no breaks. The reason is this: The oil softens up the leather, and worn the way you normally wear it, the holster will conform to your body contours fairly quickly.

    Cheap IWB holsters

    Someone recently asked me why I don't like the cheap nylon, cheap leather/suede holsters. This is why: When you remove your gun from the holster, the nylon/suede will collapse with nothing to keep it 'open'. This is especially true with IWB carry. The pressure of your waist-band will cause the holster to collapse and it is difficult to re-holster without opening your belt and pants. As nylon/suede/leather get on with age, they become softer and softer and this becomes especially true.

    Also, as long as I'm on my soap-box, when you carry a pocket gun (Ruger LCP, Kel-Tec P3AT/P-32, etc) in your front pocket, ALWAYS use a pocket holster that covers the trigger area. DON'T EVER put a pocket gun in the same pocket as any keys, change, pill bottles, or 'stuff' can get caught in the trigger and...you get the point. That guy is a friend of mine and a member of my gun club. The story makes me cringe!
    Please read these articles and please don't make the same mistake.
