    At what position have you found this holster to be most comfortable? I've seen pics of people wearing them at 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock, and 5 o'clock. I've got the holster on order and was just curious where everyone is wearing theirs. Thanks!

    You need to find out for yourself. It varies with your body type & gun & dress. You can adjust ride heaigh & cant. Only way for you to know is to try it. Most do wear at 4 or so.

    I wear my G30 at 4 o'clock with the cant set nearly as far forward as it will go.

    If you guy's like the crossbreed holsters your going to love these holsters from THEIS HOLSTERS & they are only $50.00 in cowhide or horsehide, other forums are raving about these holsters,Check out Tom Theis web site he is located in North Little Rock AR.

    +1 for Theis, I wear both my Theis and CBST at about 3:30 with a pretty good forward cant.

    Good luck, and remember that it takes some time to figure out the best place for yourself, and the horsehide, takes quite a bit longer to break in.

    I'm closer to 5. Easier for me to conceal. Great holster.

    Good well made holsters.

    But my three Crossbreeds have joined the wealth of other holsters including CTac's and other well known brands in my used holster box. Never have been able to make traditional IWB or OWB carry work for me and I've got a Beltman belt (which is great.)

    Just the way I'm built along with a bad back, I guess. Hope you have better luck.

    This. Carry a G30 all the time comfortably like this. Nothing is very comfortable sitting in a car but this is not bad. Walking, all day no problem.

    Mine settled in about 4:00 or so. Adjusted cant slightly and the top rim of the KYDEX sits even with the top of my pants/shorts. Took about 10 days or so for the cowhide to mold to my 12-pack :)

    It varies with what I'm wearing but I usually carry my G36 in my CST at about 2:30 to 4:00 ...

    First. Thanks to the OP. I've always wondered this. I used to carry mine at 5 o clock and when I bent over my gun would print or show. UGH! well now I wear mine at 3 oclock and it works out very well.

    Does anyone here carry a P30 in a CBST? I've only carried a HK p2k and HK45c in a CBST and they conceal very well. I'm getting a P30 soon and I wanted to know if anyone had any experience carrying one. I'm kinda nervous because of the grip size, nervous that I won't be able to conceal it well.

    It is different for each person. What works great for one person will not necessarily work for someone else. Best to just put on what you will wear when you carry and experiment with an unloaded gun until you find the sweet spot.

    I have actually have two of these holsters and each is worn a little different. One for my SP101 which I wear at 3:00, the other is for my G33 and I wear it around 3:30-4:00. That is where I have a found a good mix of comfort and concealment so far. The SP101 disappears in this holster. The G33 I am still testing out. Only had the holster about 1.5 weeks so i am still testing. I might move the 33 to 3:00 too once the holster breaks in more.

    Ditto this X2. My G30SF is at 4:00 and max forward cant.

    I wear mine at 3:30-4:00.

    Far enough back so it doesn't look like a growth on my hip.
    Far enough forward so it doesn't bang on seats or hard surfaces.
    Even 1/2" either way can make a big difference.

    As low on the belt as I can without making it difficult to reholster with one hand.

    Enough forward cant that the bottom of the grip is directly over the muzzle so it doesn't protrude rearward.

    Like others above, mine rides best at 4 o'clock set for the most cant I can get with a Glock 23 or Kahr K40.
