Remora clipless! Stays in place! Even with shorts and no belt, very comfortable. Have one for my Solo, Sig P-238, and Ruger LPC. The next sale I will get one for my CDP II ultra.

I too like the looks of the Brigade Holsters. I called them once but I didn't order anything yet. Keep us informed on how you like it after you receive it.
Hope it comes in soon for you.

I've never owned a holster before and since my state (Illinois) just recently lost a legal battle to keep the residents from legally carrying I am going to need one to qualify for my permit. We're required to complete 16 hours of classroom and then qualify on the range drawing and firing from a concealed holster. I think 30 rounds are required but I'm not sure of the distance or score required to pass. The only holsters I've seen at the LGS are those cheap plastic jobs that I wouldn't put any of my Kimbers in. It didn't take much once I clicked on the link Sonofagun posted for Brigade Holsters. I started looking around and ended up ordering an M-11 in black. I've often read that the best holster is only so so without a good belt so I ordered a matching belt to go with it. Who would have thought that reading a free forum could be so expensive hahaha.

Do you happen to remember what they said about why a belt makes such a difference? I have a Desantis pocket tuk and it is NOT comfortable at all. But after reading this, perhaps it's my belt?

Basically what I read is that a good belt will keep your holster from moving around and it will make your carrying experience more pleasant. The belt is what actually holds the gun on your body. A thick comfortable belt helps distributing the weight of the weapon across your entire waist. Remember this is what I've read on a lot of holster sights while shopping for my first belt and holster and not my personal experience. I am the waiting list for my belt and holster to be built, it will probably be another 5 months before I receive it.

I don't really carry mine all that much- practically never- so I bought a Galco OWB holster for it. It's a surprisingly nice holster.

A real gun belt makes all the difference in the world. I think the best belts are from Gun Belts by The Belt Man

I've had four of his belts ( I lost some weight) and they really make the difference. You cannot get a real gunbelt at a department store. Sure, some guys like to think a heavy belt will do the trick, but it doesn't.

A gun belt will keep the gun in the right position, keep it from pulling down your pants, keep it from twisting.

I have a local leather shop make my belts for me. They are double stitched in the "carry area" and single layer in the buckle/holes area. It serves to give the appearance of a standard belt while offering the support needed to properly carry the weapon. Something like this except I have the extra leather on the inside.
