    Just ordered a jm custom iwb 3 light bearing holsters for my p320 with a streamlight tlr 1, already have one Jm custom "George" that came with my sig p239 from a forum member, really like that set up and I can conceal it with only a t shirt. I like aiwb but I'm still not comfortable carrying a striker fired gun there, to much in front of the muzzle lol!

    AIWB everyday, mostly Dale Fricke Arch Angel, But more lately a Raven VG2 with claw and overhook. Man that thing is comfy. If I “dress up”, 4:00 with a Milt Sparks Versa-Max or Summer Special II.

    Currently, Kramer OWB. I have been ogling over Tucker gun leather lately.

    I've had holsters from JM Custom Kydex before, and always been impressed with their design and quality, but this one really takes the cake. It's the most stable AIWB holster I've used, it tucks the gun in against my side extremely well and has really nice retention. It's hard for me to experiment with anything other than JMCK these days.

    Upgraded my Dark Star Gear Orion holster with one of his new Darkwing attachments to help tuck the grip.

    I also picked up one of his new Koala adjustable mag pouches. You can adjust ride height to carry almost any size Glock mag at almost any height.

    That's the Darkwing. Your belt contacts it to tuck the grip both horizontally and vertically, aiding in concealment. This design is supposed to help folks that use a foam wedge on the back of the holster (that rotates the grip inward and the muzzle outward) to use a smaller wedge (or pad or whatever) or ditch it all together.

    Here's a pic of the back of my holster with my current foam wedge. 20190411_094127.jpg

    Makes a huge difference in my experience. And allows for carrying a larger firearm that would stick out and 'print' more easily without the claw/wedge.

    They work really well. I can conceal the G17 AIWB with a plain holster, but with a wedge and claw/wing it totally disappears, even under a normal tshirt on windy day.

    I've been using the Raven Concealment Claw/Wings thus far. This one looks like it will work even better while having a smaller footprint.

    I got nothing as cool as the above posters. Just a couple Alien Gear IWB and a Safariland retention holster for OWB.

    As an update, I'm really liking both the Darkwing and the Koala.
    Both work great.

    For the Glock 45 I use a locally made kydex holster (Condition Red)- works fine for IWB.

    For the spare mag - also their product:

    So far I am happy with them for urban carry. For outdoors I will look for something to be carried OWB. I am actually waiting them to release such a mode.

    Don't use a holster since it's a Kahr PM9.

    Ebay find for my Glock 34. Took some conservative use with a file to accommodate the extended mag release but not bad for $20. Still looking for an AIWB for my CZ 83, very limited because they are not popular I guess. Was recommended to take an incog for a 19 and "reshape" it.

    Lucky Gunner posted about a CZ 83 before. He found a holster for it, but the belt attachment needed to be modified to work for AIWB.

    These are the 2 rigs I use the most depending on where I am and what I'm doing.

    This is the Ringler. I wear it over the shoulder offside carry. 20190901_154708.jpg

    I don't carry yet (my immigration status makes background checks nightmare), so I only use a holster while training or outdoors. I got a T-Rex Arms Ragnarok on a Tek-Lok. Bought it with a drop leg setup, but can't get used to it. Easier to draw from the waist for me, plus it's a much lower profile.

    Anyways, the holster is pretty solid, thick Kydex with adjustable retention. Nothing fancy, just pure function.
