I have one Galco IWB Holster. I don't use it because it is uncomfortable for me to wear. I have to buy my pants a size larger for it to work. Therefore its OWB holsters for me"!
Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe with Crossbreed gun belt.
How do you like the Crossbreed belt?
I like my Blackhawk CQC carbon fiber belts with jeans, but they don't work with a suit and tie- and they all look very "well-loved". There used to be a leather belt with a metal or polymer stiffener inside. I can't find it again, which is why I ask the question 'how do you like it.
Nautica or J Crew (or someone like that) had a belt that had holes all around the belt, to accomodate my ever-changing waistline... Most belts don't stand a chance against my Springfield- they simply roll outward.
Who else has any ideas where I can get a top-of-the-line belt?
I use a so called cheap holster if and when I need to pull my gun from it, it will stay out untill the threat has passed. As for discharges, that go's straight to individual responsiablity. Inspect your equipment prior to use. You check your vehicle out before a long trip, or daily quickly or weekly extensively, Not just for your safety but for others on the roadways with you in your privately owned property.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.

SAFETY WARNING! Worn Leather Holsters Can Cause Accidental Discharges!
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!

The Crossbreed belt is an excellent belt. With the 1-1/2" width, it works with pretty much anything I wear from informal to Suit. I've been wearing this belt for over a year and it shows no sign of wear, bending or losing shape.
Does it have some sort of metal or polymer stiffener inside? What keeps it from rolling outwards? I have a double-thick leather belt, but then I can't attach my cell phone case, as the belt is too thick....
