    I've narrowed down what I am looking for in functionality:
    • Inside Waist Band
    • Tuckable
    • Appendix carry
    • Molded for P3AT II, not generic
    • Comfy without undershirt
    • Instant gratification. I don't want to wait 3+ months for it.

    Comp-tac two o'clock, $55, worried that the kydex against the gut isn't going to be very comfy.

    K&D Mini IWB Defender, $65, 14+ weeks!

    High-noon Hidden Ally, $35, in stock, but upper part of gun is bare against skin.

    JS Holsters Tuckable, $60. ? delivery, ? comfort.

    HBE leatherworks Tuckable Pro TL, $99+, fully customizable, handmade, 2-4 wks delivery. Might be the best choice! Yes, I know this is a pic of a seacamp, not a P3AT...

    Any recommendations on the above or any other ideas?

    Pics and/or links would be great if you do!

    Sir KD. I have 2 one made only for me. You will like them. Call Keven and tell him what you need and he will make it for you. Yes a long wait but worth it.
    Just my .02 OK?

    (K&D Mini IWB Defender, $65, 14+ weeks)

    Are either the Galco or the Hume tuckable? I had previously reviewed them and neither specified that they were tuckable, so I assumed they where not.

    The picture you posted is our Cochise Defender, which is for larger sized guns. I would suggest considering our Custom Belt Defender:


    Also, I would recommed doing some research/google search about HBE Leatherworks.

    I got a Kydex holster from FIST recently, and I didn't have to wait incredibly long for it to be made. Maybe you should check them out.

    Yes, upon further research, HBE is either out or nearly out of business. 3.4 weeks delivery, evidently, was a complete fantasy.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I think the best approach might be to buy a less expensive, in stock IWB tuckable appendix holster, make sure I like that carry position, then order a nicer holster from K&D.

    That sounds like an excellent plan.

    You mentioned appendix carry so I'm pretty sure you'd want to skip those holsters you show that are not straight drop. I think a a slight reverse cant would be ideal for appendix carry but can't remember ever seeing, reading or hearing about such an IWB holster.

    Take care ...

    I am not built for appendix carry, but find the K&D mini-IWB-Defender extremely comfortable at 3:30. Actually the Cochise Defender there right now with a 1911 in it is pretty comfy.... ::)

    I just got a Comp-tac Two O'clock holster after using a K&D IWB Defender.
    I use the Comp-Tac on the hip like the K&D.
    Just think it's great. You couldn't go wrong with this. Took about 4 days from the time I ordered it.
