I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to get for my first holster for a G23. I'd like something that would be secure enough when riding 4 wheelers, and also could be concealed if necessary. Maybe I should be looking for a couple of different bolsters for each specific purpose.

So would it be best to look at an OWB type holster, that had some kind of strap that snaps down? Sorry but I just don't have a clue.

My favorite is the Blackhawk Serpa. It's an OWB, but it can be concealed with a loose shirt or jacket.

The Blackhawk is nice but for OWB I have become a big fan of the Safariland ALS. The Blackhawks finger release is sometimes difficult to find in high stress situations. The thumb break on the Safariland is quick and it has great retention. Plus it's felt-lined so the finish stays good.

For IWB I love my White Hat Max Tuck.

Just try some different holsters and you will find what you like

I have a White Hat Holster Maxtuck for my CC, and a cheap Blackhawk! with level 2 retention thumbreak from Wal-Mart. It will in fact stay in place while riding a four-wheeler because I have done it. It is a simple holster, OWB, and it gets the job done. It protects my gun and the trigger.

does that scratch your gun up?I have the fz on it i don't know how it will do with that.
No scratching on the stock finish whatsoever.

As far as draw...practice, practice, practice. My fingers know exactly what to do. Very quickly at that.

Blackhawk Serpa for sure.

I know someone who has a Gen 2 G17 which he holsters in the old Glock polymer holster which seems more abrasive than the serpa, and his finish is still in great shape. His gun is over 15 years old, I think a plastic holster will be fine.

I like my Fobus holster and will go with Foxx holsters for concealed carry

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I think I will try the Safariland ALS or Blackhawks Serpa for starters. They are cheap enough, so if I don't like can try something else.

Serpa holsters are garbage (honest no offense to anyone, it's all opinion). I would buy a Fobus before I paid the money for a Serpa. The Safariland ALS holsters are nice, and you will be amazed at how fast you can defeat the retention with just a little practice. The suede lining is nice too. They are as slim as they state, and can actually be concealed under a light jacket.

I will add, as well, this holster does not dig into the hip as with some others. It is super comfortable when sitting. Oh, and I would shy away from leather holsters as much as possible. They retain moisture, which is one reason why I will never buy one.

I have a Blackhawk Serpa as well. They're designed for the specific gun and the locking mechanism works very well. The release is right where your finger wants to go so with practice you should have no problem.

I've also just ordered a MIC holster for IWB. It looks like something that will work well for me in the warmer month. I'll have to get back to everyone on how that works out.

Mic holster is okay I just don't like the idea of perspiration on my weapon . I own 1 and have used it for a long time . and this is no joke make sure you practice practice practice .it is something that you will have to get use to drawing your weapon you really have to use force when drawing your weapon.
