What's the most comfortable holster for CC? I have a Glock 23. Just curious.
I like the crossbreed type, easy to make and very comfortable to wear all day. Just remember to make clean cuts on the horse hide. For OWB I use a Blackhawk CQC, great retention and also comfortable, just harder to conceal.
Try on several if you can. One persons "most comfortable holster in the world" is someone elses "unwearable piece of crap".
OWB are more comfortable but not as concealable as IWB, but there are some really comfortable IWB like the Crossbread and even the cheap DeSantic Soft Tuc
You'll probably end up with a drawer full before you find the "perfect" holster. I picked up an IWB off of ebay. I didn't like it at first, but now it's my favorite and always my go to holster.
I have a couple of OWB's that I wear depending on my mood/dress. But you'll also have to learn to dress around your gun. I can conceal my 23 in shorts and a t shirt without any problems.
The comment about a drawer full of holsters is right on the money.
Save yourself some money and studythink about your situation and when you plan on wearing the firearm.
In the south, and carrying all day in the summer heat. I sweat. I wear/use several made of Keydex plastic. I prefer the SideArmor product because it is thick plastic and the attachments can vary the angle of wear. Most important is the fact it comes with a sweatguard to help protect my firearm from my body salts.
I used to do a lot of automobile work were I had to lay down and in some crazy positions. SideArmor never failed me. Now, I have broken some of the belt loops by catching them on different objects throughout the years but those are replaced easily enough.
I own several of these holsters for storing my firearms in different places now. Very good trigger protection and easy tension adjustment.
lots of good advice here. I wanted the Crossbreed supertuck but wasn't willing to wait for it. I went with the Galco King Tuk and have loved it. But it's a trial and error process for sure.
Thanks for the info guys, I have already started my collection
I was looking at the crossbreed for my next go around.
Any opinions on the holster that GLOCK makes?. Looks to be about 14 bucks or so.
Believe it or not, not too bad for outside the waistband (OWB) carry. It too does a good job of covering the trigger. I don't have any idea how long it will last but when new I have heard reviews on it.
What do you guys think of the MIC?
I ordered a Whitehat Max Tuck on Monday.. I will let you know what I think of it when it arrives. (hopefully before Christmas). I t seemed to be very similar to the Crossbreed SuperTuck except you can change the kydex scabbard for different types of guns instead of having to buy a complete new holster. and the original cost was less.
Something I have always done for with a good leather holster. Buy something that you like that will meet your style but remember they are like a new pair of shoes. You have to wear it a while and get it broke in before you have a true opinion of like or dislike for it.
Been carrying for over 23 years
The two best holsters I've ever had are both "plastic". I wear and swear by the DeSantis Scorpion for IWB and the Blackhawk serpa for OWB. Can't beat the Blackhawk for range re-quals either. I find that the wide attachment clips on the Scorpion keep the holster from swiveling and keeps the weapon in perfect position. Also because it's not swiveling and rubbing, it's a lot more comfortable.
My G19C and my G36 both fit in the same holsters. And you can't beat the prices, unlike the Galco's which I think use thread made out of gold for what they cost.
I primarily use a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB and occasionally use a Galco Combat Master OWB. I prefer the IWB so that I can be more comfortable knowing that my gun is better concealed. Live in a windy, warm climate.
I primarily carry my G23 in a Kholster which is comparable to a Super Tuck. Kholsters are a little less refined than the Cross Breed's but they are nearly half the price. An excellent holster and one I've bought for each of my carry guns.
The Max Tuck from White Hat Holsters arrived yesterday! I will have to say it is a quality holster and the one I like the best out of the selection I have in the drawer that is getting full.
I carry my G23 in a multiholster IWB kydex and a X-concealment OWB.
Fobus by far IMO.
I just ordered my very first holster for my g27 the galco king tuk I will let ya know what I think of it. All I hear are good things.
my friend and I built this custom IWB holster for my Gen-I G19 a couple of weeks ago; we worked on the holster project together, and it took us a little over two hours to complete it (from 'start to finish') with a couple of coffee breaks during the process.
we started off molding the Kydex® then we trimmed the Kydex® to shape; we then cut a section of cowhide, and trimmed it to shape, and then treated it with a leather a conditioner; we then drilled the Kydex® and we used a hole punch on the leather; and then we riveted the Kydex® to the leather section; the final step was attaching the metal clips, an using a heat-gun, we added a slight radius to the holster, to make it more comfortable.
