which type/style of IWB CC holster?

I got lucky and got a cool enough job that lets me CC my service weapon and it's time to pick out a IWB holster but I've never worn one and it seems like some would be more uncomfortable then others. I've found a few and some have more surface area then others. I would just like to hear what others think that carry with a IWB holster.
What would be more comfortable, leather or kydex or the plastic holsters? I'm not concerned with price since I will be carrying just about everyday for who knows how many hours, walking, standing, sitting, etc...
I'll be carrying a H&K p2000 .40

I like how this has a spot for a extra mag and is adjustable
http://www.desantisholster.com/m24.html


This one doesn't seem bad either but they don't list the p2000
http://www.desantisholster.com/057.html


http://www.miltsparks.com/SS-2.htm


http://www.opticsplanet.net/galco-su...-holsters.html



This one seems like it might be the most comfortable walking around and such with the wide weight distribution but not sure if the extra leather backing would get in the way when sitting.

I use a BladeTech IWB for my g19 (with j-hooks for easy removal).

http://blade-tech.com/Inside-Waist-Band-c-260.html

Personally, I wouldnt want the mag on the same side as the holster for two reasons. First, the more you have on one side the less comfortable and less concealable it will be. Second, if I were in a situation that I needed to get to that mag, I wouldnt want to be fumbling for it on my strong side. Get a pouch for your support side, either inside or out.

Blade Tech IWB. Your spare mag goes on your support hand side. Are you going to set the pistol down to draw another mag? You should be manipulating the gun to eject the old mag as you draw the spare mag from the support side.

I use the Galco Royal Guard which is very similar to the summer comfort you posted as well as their Sky Ops.

I like both. The SkyOps is a tuckable IWB.

I sell Galco

I use a Versa-Max II by Milt Sparks. I'm a skinny bastard and it spreads out the weight better.

Some folks are ambidexterous

Transision to left hand from a 2 handed grip prior to running out of ammo.

I have one of the crossbreed holsters for my S&W .357 revolver that I CC and I love it. Very comfortable, and it conceals well, which was something hard for me to find being a bigger guy.

I was thinking since my mag pouch is usually on my right and I reach over with my support hand easily to reload but wasn't thinking about the mag being further over and vertical in that holster.

Screw that, I shoot with my weak hand just enough to qualify and be comfortable with it in case I ever do have to shoot that way

Can you pm me a price for a galco skyops for a p2000.
The only question I have is how sturdy is the y-hook. From the pics it looks like it might be flimsy due to it's length and being thin.

Check out these holsters as well:

http://www.jmgholsters.com/iwb.htm

Not expensive, and seem to be decent quality/well regarded. I have one on order myself.

If you are going with leather- look for one that does not have the belt loops directly over the body of the pistol. That makes the whole thing stick out more. Holsters with the loops fore and aft of the body of the gun sit flatter and are often adjustable for riding height.

I have been very happy with mine. No issues with the hook at all.

The SkyOps are 65, but I do not see one listed for the P2000 only the USP Compact

ps. to anyone reading this.... best way to get a quote is to email me.

Another vote for Comp-Tac. I carry my XDsc in a CTAC and I am thinking about an MTAC for my Sig 226 for winter.

Also, don't forget the most important part of a concealed carry rig... THE BELT!

Speaking of belts...are there any non-dress gun belts!? I have a couple of leather ones but I'm looking for something more casual.

I don't remember who made it but I have a nylon instructors belt thats stiffer and thicker then some typical leathers.

Most leather belts have the ability to swap out the buckle

i bought a p2000 when they first came out. i couldn't find anyone who offered an inside the waist holster for it. what i found was that every holster for a usp compact 9/40 fit the p2000 very well. i ended up with a blade tech IWB holster for a USP compact. the only part that was a little different was that the usp holster was clearanced for a safety, but it didn't cause a problem.
