For IWB am using the Theis hybirds, and am another suspender wearer. Shoulder holster is Null upside down for 638. Have several Galco owb leather holsters for field revolvers, but am rarely using them.

The Blade Tech Klipt kydex IWB for the LCR was perfect (for me). There are no adjustments, but I wouldn't have changed anything. I really liked how the clip was over the trigger to make it fit slimmer. About $30 on Amazon.

I sold the LCR, but am keeping the holster jic.

I like leather, but have a few kydex rigs, too.
For the gun I carry most, I have a leather OWB from Done Hume, of the "avenger" style.
For IWB, I have a K Rounds kydex for appendix carry, which has a pivoting arm that allows the gun to be holstered, then the holstered gun pushed down into position behind the waistband.
I have a Clinger sticky holster for pocket carry.
Last, is a compression-style t-shirt from UnderTech, with built-in shoulder holsters and pockets on both sides.

For range use, I mostly use either a Davis Omega or Blocker Thunder, which are both steel-lined leather, but I also have a couple of Safariland 567/568, which is a good, inexpensive, suede-lined synthetic.
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.

I carry mostly IWB, in a leather holster by DeSantis. I have been pleased with its stability and with its longevity. I use a Remora for a pocket holster, for a Sig P238. I have occasionally used it as an IWB, and was pleasantly surprised at its performance. My wife has used her Remora, also for a P238, quite extensively for IWB, and is happy with it.

Like some others, I am not a kydex fan. Never tried a paddle holster - just never appealed to me enough for me to part with my money.

Over the last 50 years I've bought , tried out and used a lot of holsters .
I just took inventory on all of them and discovered something ...amazing !
All the holsters I have and use , except for one cheap Uncle Mike's fabric type holster (I never bought another) are all Bianchi and are all leather . 3 are black and the other 9 are brown leather . The Galco I thought I had is actually a Bianchi .
Recently I had to replace the gunbelt and holster for my 1970 Ruger Blackhawk and after looking at a bunch and considering prices etc ... I ended up ordering a Bianchi #1L Lawman for $59.95 on sale .

Questions #2 & #3 I can't help you with .
