Looking to get a new one very shortly, a AIWB, but want to hear some testimonials about what IWB you use and at what position. Also can't hurt to hear about the leather belts you've picked up to hold said holsters.

I'm sub 1 sec on draw/chambering a round with my Cozy Partner but it's not AIWB.
I can back that up too.

I'm looking at JM Custom Kydex The George model, with wedge. Any users?

Favorite by far is milt sparks executive carry, mine is at least 15 years old and fits like a glove. It has a stabilizer that keeps it motionless as I move, so no adjusting. It is exceptionally well made, and you wait for that level of craftsmanship.

On belt, my preference is 1.75-2" width, double ply. The problem with gun belts is they look like gun belts; the problem with non-gun belts is they don''t do a good job supporting a gun..

Of course I'll forgive you Steelbenz! Always looking to improve!

Liger belts are great gun belts and dont look like them. I have had rwo of them for 10ish years and they still look excellent.

My goto is a 2" wide shark skin, black, it is very stable and has held up very well for 10+ years. I'"ll try to get a pic.

I dont remeber where exactly i bought them. I did a google search and it looks like lots of places sell them. Nice thing about them is they are a synthetic. So unlike leather the never strectch or change shape at all. I honestly don't think they will ever wearout. 10+ years of daily wear and they are perfect other than some surface marks.

Agreed, I've seen them all over the place, unfortunately they don't have my size right now. Apparently they are biothane and I didn't know that. I figured they were just quality leather.

Just ordered a Kore belt, X3, I think.  Looks intriguing.

I have had mine a few years, I like it a lot primarily due to it looks more like a dress belt than a regular gun belt. Also the trackline is great for adjusting for different carry styles and guns.

So I managed to buy a new holster after reading a lot of reviews and comparing prices, ordered on Saturday and it's already here. I picked up the Tulster Holster, which is made from kydex and has one solid clip for retention around the belt. Great fit so far, and there is a audible click when reholstering. So far I'm truly impressed with it and can't wait to finish this little post and apply the provided thread locker and set my holster up so I can practice my draws. It's smaller than my Cozy Partner too.

Holy cow, Kore belt is awesome, not sure how I missed that before.

If you need a belt that bridges business and gun belt, it is the ticket. Mine has the rigidity of a double-ply belt while being far thinner. And the adjusting track is great, easy to go from IWB to on the belt, and easy to go from hungry as hell to I just ate way too much.
