Here is my Baby
What are you guys using I am getting my CCL this month and I wanted to know your OP's on the best IWB Holster for under $75.
Here is my Baby
I don't know the price but Galco has them. Go to the top of the page and click on the banner.
I've found it a bit bulky to carry IWB. I carry mine in a Fobus paddle holster and it conceals pretty well when carried at 4 O'Clock. It is nice and light to tote around all day.
If I'm carrying IWB, I carry my Kimber CDP II due to it's light weight and thin profile.
For the Sigma, just go up a size in shirts and wear them untucked with the paddle holster. I recommend against the nylon/flimsy leather-like IWB's you will come across with the metal band/belt clip. If you're set on IWB, there are some on all leather ones on Ebay from "The Gun Store".
I use a Galco Summer Comfort for my GP100 revolver and plan to get one for my M&P40 as soon as they start producing them in black. It is so comfortable I forget the GP100 is strapped on.
Galco actually doesn't list any IWB holster as an "official" specific fit for the Sigma. However, I just pulled a Sigma pistol and a Summer Comfort for the M&P, and the Sigma is a great fit in the M&P holster!
Thanks to you all for the help!
Got a Fobus Belt on Sale and I am still waiting to order the Galco I am putting braces on my daughter and it has pinched my cash flow temporally
I obtained a natural color Summer Comfort for my M&P shortly after your opening post. I have been carrying it every since and couldent be happier. I obtained a second one in black and my buddy decided to slide his 9MM Glock into my natural color spare one day. It fit and he likes it so well I haven't been able to get it back.
I forgot I have had the M&P on for the past 9 hours untill opening this thread.
I don't know how to reccomend it any stronger.
Does your gun fit well enough in the Summer Comfort that it will not fall out? Is there any level of retention? I want to get one for my MP 40 but may steer towards a IWB blackhawk i seen with a strap that comes over the top, if the SC does not hold the weapon well enough.
Any more comparisons on the SC Galco and the crossbreed supertuck. Both about the same price, big difference is the supertuck has a piece of hide that goes against your body, and of course the clips and snaps are different. Has anyone ever compared both of them or have both of them.
You guys that carry IWB....How is it to have the gun in place and sit..like in driving a car? It seems like it would be very uncomfy...I would be looking at carrying my XD9 service..
Also if you carry OWB at 4 o'clock...how is that if you sit as in driving?
Gould and Bianchi make an IWB for about anything. I've got them in all kinds of shapes and sizes. I have got a few IWBs at places like http://www.copquest.com/ and http://www.copsplus.com/
I've found when I had a Sigma that I could look for holsters in comparable Glock sizes and they work just fine.
Thanks....The supertuck is a holster I was looking closely at...
I have a blackhawk serpa and it works ok for OWB, but when I try to put it inside it feels like a pointy brick in there...
Supertucks are supposed to be very comfy...
I do always have a T shirt on between the gun/holster and skin.
I was hesitant to go IWB for the same concerns but expect you will find it to be an excellent carry method if you once try it. If you do, go leather, plastic is uncomfortable.
Good luck and stay safe.

I hear a lot of good things about the summer comfort but they don't make it for the XDSC.
You can find just about any holster for any gun, in any carry style at Desantis holsters, I bought an IWB with spare clip pouch for my sigma for 35 bucks, shipping and all.
