I'm a cheap bastard. If it's on e-bay and it fits an M and it's less than ten bones I'm all over it. Ahhhh, poverty That said, I picked up a Blade-tech IWB 'Ultimate Concealment' holster a few weeks back for a dollar. http://www.blade-tech.com/frontend?comm ... ionId=4368 Owner modifed the belt clip, cutting off the S-curve so that it hangs on your pants instead of holding the underside of yoru belt. I contacted the company and they said they could replace the retention arm for cheap. When I got the holster I gave it a try for fit and function. Both perfect, though the hard shell was a little more intrusive than I'd expected. A few draw drills and a day later (Bear in mind, I'm only carrying to the truck, to the house and around the house until the CCW comes around) I find the giant scratch. Now I don't mind a little wear. Thank God, my GF doesn't either, but it's not often I get something nice. You know that feeling you get when a bird shits on your brand new car? Imagine your garage leaving an 8-inch scar down the side of your fender. I did give the retention screw in the front a quarter-twist when I fit the holster. I've since pulled that quarter-twist out, but I haven't had the gumption to try the holster again, and I'll be damned if I spend more of my hard-earned peanuts to improve it. Being new to pistols and new to carrying I'm still feeling my way through the accessories forest here, but I'm surprised to find that the cheap codura slide-style holster I got when i purchased the gun still functions better than anything else I've picked up cheap on e-bay, including the Galco shoulder and a very nice leather paperweight I couldn't stretch by Don Hume. I'd love to hear what everyone else has experienced with kydex holsters, whether there's a method for minimizing the wear on the finish or any tips on fitting holsters to the pistol. Experience, be my guide!
