Retention in crossbreed holster

Does anyone care to share experiences on how crossbreed holsters retain the weapon? I'm thinking about getting one for my XD 45.

Thanks.

I've got an XD sub that I carry in a Crossbreed. Can't compare it to another IWB, but I can run in it without problems. If you want more than average retention you can tell him with your order and he'll accomodate, you can send it back and he'll adjust, or he's got DIY instructions using a hairdryer and wet towels.

I have used one with a 5" 1911 for a year and had zero problems. There was an intial break in after which I have seen no further loosening. Holds it tight and secure but with a fast draw and an easy rehoster.

Great Retention

I carry my Glock 30 in mine, and it stays put very well.

Thanks

Thanks, guys. I think I'll get one. Seems relatively underpriced, and your input helps.
