    My wonderful wife surprised me with a g19 today :) I need a holster, something ccw, thinking small or back. Wouldnt mind something I can draw out of that the holster will stay still. Also if I can use it on my back, front, and side, even better. Something cheap would be great

    Hands down http://www.concealmentsolutions.com/

    I can carry my G19 all day long as in 14 hours in total comfort. And I've used this concealment holster in IDPA fun shoot competitions.

    Love it, every one of my friends who have tried these holsters are still wearing them today. =)

    I carry a g19 in a White Hat Holsters MaxxTuck. I love mine. I've had it for a couple months and it is very comfortable.

    Welcome by the way!!

    Just so happens that we have a native here at the forum who makes holsters. MikeP at defensiveholsters.com.

    I personally use a crossbreed super tuck. I like the kydex holsters from mike but the leather feels better on my hip...

    All of the above are good choices for holsters, as for SOB carry be careful as a bad fall may lead to spinal injury. SOB is the only way I will not carry for this reason. Good luck and try several different positions while in front of a mirror, you will find what works for you.

    You can't go wrong with any of the vendors on this site. They all make high quality holsters. You just need to decide what style suits you best. I personally have a crossbreed supertuck (very similar to Foxx Holsters - vendor), RCS Phantom Modular (very similar to TROTAC & Defensive Holsters - both vendors), and will be receiving an appendix rig from TROTAC.

    The crossbreed I use for IWB at the 4-5 oclock position
    The RCS I use for OWB, but can also be used IWB
    The TROTAC appendix is IWB

    The first two were purchased before I knew anything about these guys, but I would not hesitate in the least.

    I also would not recommend SOB carry...just my opinion.

    N82 has some nice holsters.

    n82tactical.com

    Many of those listed already would work best with a belt. There are some concealed carry options with a holster/pouch built in to the clothing or that utilize a strap...similar to a fanny pack.

    Disclaimer: I have no experience with the above two options. Others may like them while some would say they hate them. You can check them out though.

    I recommend you use a belt, any holster you choose will be much more comfortable and provide that retention you said you desire upon drawing the weapon.

    In order for a holster or gun to stay put when you draw you'll need a belt, or else you'll be like those guys you see on Cops with the gun falling out of your pant leg. What kind of holster do you want, IWB OR OWB? Kydex, leather or even a hybrid? Mike P's holsters are good to go. I personally run Blackhawk Serpas and kydex holsters from leadfarmerinc.com. But you can't go wrong with the suggestions from the forum, all are good holsters but it comes down to your comfort and how you run your gun.
