Favorite HK Fullsize holsters, holsters for hot weather.

I'm trying to find a good holster that holds the HK 45 Fullsize really well. I would like an inside waistband holster or paddle, leather or kydex.

Also, any hints on carrying in hot weather for this or the 45 compact? Type of holster, clothing?

I would highly recomend you contact Mark Garrity of Garrity's gunleather.
On the custom makers section I posted a thread DiFabio's custom gun pics, in it you will see some of Mark's work including one of the best pancake holsters I have ever used for the USP full size in black shark skin.
If you look in the same picture you will also see an IWB model that resembles a pancake holster with outside loops and snaps with a Glock 27 in it, this model is Mark's Incognito and it is the easiest, most comfortable holster I have found to carry a full size pistol securely for extended periods of time while walking, driving, and sitting. The snaps allow it to go on and off quickly with the speed of a paddle, I purchased my first SharkSkin and Horsehide Incognito from Mark in 1994 and I still wear it comfortably.
Mark has been a full time police officer/Swat Team member/instructor here in PA for over a decade and he knows what works.

For a kydex rig I would suggest one of Tim Wegners blade tech paddle rigs or Kevin McClungs MD Labs Thunderbolt rigs. Both are highly durable, well designed, and both makers stand behind thier products.

Will ans, to Kydex only. You can't go wrong with David Elderton's Superb Ky-Tac "Braveheart" IWB though delivery time can be as long as for a true custom Leather make. http://hometown.aol.com/kytac Two other exceptional hand made & hand formed & finished Kydex makers are Mad Dog's "Gun Glove" & Frank Spezzano's Cen-Dex. http://www.mdenterprise.com/holsters.htm & http://www.cen-dex.com
