When i carry my g23, i use uncle mikes iwb holster and carry at my 5 o'clock. I wear a utility belt with a 1.5" width. Its possible that its just the way i carry it but i carry my 27 with a cobra iwb leather holster and its fine. However, the cobra holster is open on the bottom while the uncle mikes has that little bit of fabric covering the end. Im always looking at new holsters. I LOVE the cobra though.
