I got one of the Bianchi ISW Clip On holsters for an employee for his 1911.  I like it when others are the test dummies and he carried it for a few weeks and gave it two thumbs up.  So, I got for my Defender and my Mustang Plus II since I carry both in different situations.   I don't like ISW so I either run my belt over the outside of the holster or carry it in my right front pocket with my shirt tail out.   I am short (5'5") but large chested and wear a 16 1/2 to 17 shirt so my shirt tails are long and covers the weapon just fine.   Plus if I have to go to the weapon it is right there were my had is and I don't have to telegraph by raising my shoulder and my elbow extending out as the draw is below the perps line of sight.

These holsters are very well made, snug my weapon and large tab keeps the weapon from jabbing me when I sit.  I am guessing on the retail that you can pick these up for around $40 to $45 which is a good price for a holster of this quality.   I am not going to carry these on the store as there are just to many models out there and I can't put $50 in stocking holsters.  I do have the Officer Model 100 in left hand on the store as the idiot ordering these (me) got the wrong one first order and I won't send it back as it will sell one day.

Here's picks of my Defender and Mustang all tucked away and happy and one of my pocket carry of the Defender.  The pic is in a mirror so that is my right side.

And here I was thinking I was the only one that did the "inside the belt but outside the pants" thing!  Bianchi makes a good product, you should get plenty of use out of it.  My only real gripe with many of the IWB holsters is they tend to put the clip over the biggest part of the gun with revolvers.  I wish more would put it at the trigger guard area.  Not such a big deal with autos but can make a big difference with revolvers.

Great minds think alike Dave.  Well that and inside the belt put outside the pants does not stick you as bad when you sit down.  It also allows me to pull the shirt up with my thumb and grip the weapon faster as the grip is not tight up against my waist as much as inside the pants.

I would also add to those reading this to always train with your carry gun from the carry holster.  Many public ranges won't allow it so occasionally find an outdoor range that does.   You need to draw and fire in training in the exact same manner you would when your ass is on the line.   Don't let the first time you draw your carry weapon and fire be the real thing.
