Crossbreed is pretty chunky. Anything else out there that's thinner

    Greetings form the newb to the forum. I have been a lurker for months but just picked up my 3rd XD yesterday needed some help.

    Some background:
    After owning a couple Glocks (23 and 27), a Beretta 96D an MP40 4" a Ruger Super Blackhawk, a Kahr K40 and a Kahr CM9 I decided I wanted a Glock-like pistol with extra passive safety enhancements. So I bought an XD40 service a couple years ago. Loved it so much I bought the 9mm service a few weeks back. Loved it so much I bought the 9mmSC yesterday. Hard to find right now but if you know where to go.....

    I Carry concealed. Have carried a Kahr PM9 for a few months after carrying a Kahr CM9 before that. However as with another Kahr I had in the past I'm just not 100% comfortable with how it shoots - I know I know - go shoot it more and I intend to do that. It's a great gun - just need to adjust the sights a little and practice (maybe). I carry the Kahr in front pocket or Crossbreed Mini-tuck. Love the mini-tuck.

    So today I found a local guy selling his left handed XD9SC super tuck. Go figure - I find a used LEFTY super tuck for the gun I just bought. I thought the planets were aligning. It's in great shape. Paid $40 for it. I tried it on with the new 9SC and it's pretty chunky. When I wear my Kahr I can barely fit it in my regular jeans. It fit's but it isn't extremely comfy. I have a pair of 1 size up jeans that the Kahr fits great in. However even with the 1 size up jeans the 9SC is pretty snug.

    Now to my question. Does anyone out there make a more low profile or thinner IWB holster (than the Crossbreed) for the 9SC or is there a better solution? I've never really considered an OWB holster for CCW. I's a 6' guy in a 6'2 torso so shirts really don't run that long on me.

    Let me know and thanks in advance.

    3/16" for the leather backing (at most) and 1/16" for the kydex portion - how much thinner do you think you can go and still retain rigidity of the holster :confused:

    Chunky is not the first thing that comes to mind when I think about my super tucks :)

    In all the years I have been on here and heard positive things about Crossbreed. I have NEVER heard them being call chunky.:?:

    any thinner and you may as well go with a fabric holster, it will collapse.

    For inside the waist band you are not going to find anything better. Its not the holster that is chunky, its the gun. If you want more space inside your belt line get a single stack gun.
