I went to The Bullet Ranch in Pataskala today and they only carry one kind

I didnt feel comfortable with this. I feel since it is so soft it may make re-holstering difficult and there is no thumb-break.

Did you find anything yet? I just got an Alien Gear IWB thru Amazon and it seems to be breaking in nicely.

I've been through many holsters and I have settled on thin Kydex IWB to be the best fit for me. I wear Foxx Trap holsters mostly because they are thin, securely hold the weapon are easy to draw from and easy to re-holster without worry of danger of negligent discharge. I find one clip holsters the easiest to put on and remove if you have to do that a few times daily. I also wear a Shark Tac two clip holster occasionally that is a good holster too but is more difficult to put on and remove from your belt.

Foxx Trap's and Shark Tac's are also ride height adjustable and you can adjust the cant too which I find a bonus when looking for a good holster.

I don't like leather holsters due to the added thickness and easier printing They also collapse when the weapon is removed. I don't like leather / Kydex hybrids either because of the extra thickness of the leather and the leather absorbs sweat and makes the leather go soft and limp. I also don't like the feel of leather against my bare skin though some don't like Kydex against their bare skin either.

Get a quality belt too. That makes all the difference when carrying.
