Hello, I started selling hybrid holsters here on ebay in 2010 after I obtained my CCW permit and began a search for a good conceal holster. I wanted the hybrid style, but wasn't going to pay the prices I was seeing for something I was sure I could make myself. So I did. With extra material, I made holsters for some family members. From there I set out to design a holster that was high quality, maximum comfort, very versatile for an affordable price that I could sell. I believe I have succeeded as I have received very positive feedback. Couple that with great customer service and you can't go wrong with TW Holsters. These hybrid holsters are made with 7 to 8 oz cowhide. The black is dyed from the manufacture and is as flexible as the natural tan so there is virtually no break in period. The Kydex is .093, so it is very sturdy. They can be worn IWB or OWB and have plenty of cant, and retention adjustment. Your search is over. For more options visit twholsters.com. "Carry On"
