    Where do you want to carry? What gun are you trying to conceal?

    For IWB under a polo or tshirt, I use a Blade-Tech injection molded:

    http://www.blade-tech.com/In-the-Waistband-Universal-Fits-All-Holster-pr-814.html

    I order it with the J-hook instead of the straps.

    For carry under a jacket or heavier garments, I like the DeSantis Speed Scabbard, it's a super comfortable "pancake" design that conceals well under a sport coat.

    For IDPA and range training, either a Blackhawk or Blade-Tech kydex belt holster.

    I have the same set of holsters for every gun I've carried. Don't forget to get a few mag pouches and a good stiff belt.

    There is a wealth of knowledge and opinions on this forum. What weapon and how do you plan on carrying? Also, you may want to check the threads in the forum sponser section for forum members who make holsters.

    I second the Comp tac M-TAC
    mine is brand new and already comfy
    Owb-I actually like the Glock combat/sport(if you have a Glock)
    and I also like some of the Yaqui slides

    Almost any of the Custom or Semi Custom Holsters work well, But this is a very personal area and what works for mew may not for you, I used a Glock sport holster for many years while in plain clothes, BUT IT WAS ALWAYS UNDER A JACKET, I went to a desantis but did not like it since it printed badlyI then found a Bianchii speed scabard type that worked for my G-21 and my G-27. I found that by positioning it so that the Barrel slipped into my back pocket it stayed hidden even with an untucked T- Shirt as long as the shirt was a size larger and my Belt was tight. But you have to dress for what you carry and carry to fit your body type

    Kholster either full or crecent moon, cut to shape you want, and super comfy.

    Welcome!

    Many options on holsters, with much information and several opinions found in this forum. Personally, I've been carrying a G30 in a Bianchi 100 Professional (IWB) this winter with great results. IMHO, it's inexpensive, easy on/off, good quality leather, and is comfortable and works great with or without a belt. Won't break the bank if deciding on how / where you want to carry a G30.

    Winner, winner, chicken dinner. I use this same holster for both my G23 and G27 for the last 5 years or so. Great holster.

    With a box full of expensive holsters I just want to recommend that if you do not buy the M-Tac you will be using the second best holster, at best.

    Alabama Holster Co makes several models of IWB. The Hooker is designed for appendix carry, but can be had with a cant to it for more rearward carry. Same model with a full loop is called the 360. They have another model called the Offside but I haven't used that one yet.
