I've spent a small fortune on IWBs in the last couple months since purchasing my G19. I have issues with every holster I've purchased thus far when it comes to comfort. My son and I were at a small gun show at our local German-American Club last month where I saw this laying on a vendors table; the table was full of nothing but used holsters. So I started rummaging through them and found this Gun-Mate (still in the original bag)...5 bucks. MidwayUSA has them new for $6.99. The reason I continued on a quest for a different "perfect" holster was because I don't know if I'm completely comfortable carrying 'Condition 1' with this cloth holster. I know I wouldn't be if I carried behind the hip but carrying at 9:00 (lefty), it's perfect and very secure. It's not like the Uncle Mikes, which is very soft material. This is a more secure, stiffer nylon type. Like a heavy canvas. Anyone have an opinion on carrying one in the pipe with this holster? Thanks.
