Safariland model 0701. It's a level 2 holster, meaning two levels of retention. You can't lose your weapon, and it can't be taken from you. Comfortable to wear all day, and I'm 6'1" and 230. So not skinny either.

I just got an MTAC by Comp-Tac for my Ultra CDP II. Very comfortable.

I have 4 holsters used for two guns.

Bianchi Slide holster - nice OWB, cheap, good retention. Barrel hangs exposed, but doesn't bother me.

High Noon Hidden Ally - Tuckable IWB. Basic, functional, and allows me to tuck my shirt in to conceal. My only complaint is having 1 large clip, which I find to be rather noticable for such deep concealment offered by a tuckable holster.

Glock 36:
Don Hume JIT Slide - Nice OWB holster. Simple, minimal size, good retention, pretty cheap.

K&D Leather custom holster - The model I purchased is not made anymore, but the Thunder Bird is similar. Tuckable, this holster conceals very well, using 2 small clips on the front and back of my hip. I've replaced the standard clips with C-clips to make them nearly invisibile. Extremely comfortable, this holster makes carrying a breeze.

I am considering a new holster for my Sp101 to allow OWB with easier concealment. My current one allows the gun to hand too low to be conveniently covered with out a jacket.
