    I've always liked the inexpensive Fobus holsters. (Old G26 holster fits the G23)

    The paddle holster works well enough for a product priced below $30, and the retention strength is excellent.

    But here in the tropical swamps undershirts are not an option, and the rubber backing on the paddle is uncomfortable against bare skin.

    fix = applying a small piece of thin, auto upholstery leather

    Nice, any Kydex IWB would also benefit form that. Another option is Moleskin, sold @ any groc/drug store.
