The steel spring clip of the Vedder keeps the gun right where it needs to be all day no problem, but after 6 months or so I tend to wear out the clip and have to buy a new one (for $6, I keep a number of spares).

Tradeoffs I guess.

After the SS this is my next favorite IWB, designed by one of the best and a true gentleman, that we lost several years ago, Lou Alessi. If you like the concept of a clip you should consider one, mine is still on the original clip after 15 years. Skip worked with Lou for quite a few years.
