I gave up on Kahrs because a) it freaked me out to put that butter smooth long trigger into a IWB, b) they weren't 100% reliable, or soon wouldn't be.

I feel better about my DA/SA sidearms but still hesitate at that last little push down into the holster.

What IWB holsters (or other things for CCW) do Glock owners use?

Please do not add to this conversation if a)you never holstered with one in the tube, b) you have only holstered your service sidearm, c) you don't know why I am asking, d) you think a safety fixes the problem, e) all of the above.

The question can extend to the Croatian Springfields, as well, since it seems easy to activate the grip safety while holstering.

Don't make this a fanboi thread. Or do. I don't care.

For my summer edc Glock 27 it goes into a Old Faithful Stealth Tuck, basically a clone of the Crossbreed Super Tuck. I just liked the option of being able to make my own, rather then going with the one size fits all approach. I've never really concerned myself with an nd while holstering. I know it can, and does happen, I just don't consciously think about it. Other than booger hook off the bang lever, when holstering.

so, Highlander, you just insert it without looking, no hesitation, etc?

I have 10 lb DA on my CZ and unless I clear my undershirt, other shirt, pants, and underpants, I don't reholster, and even then, I am ready for the bang.

No, I always look at the gun when holstering, but not when drawing. And I also use the Carry Clip without hesitation, the belt serves as the trigger guard.

Never hesitated when going back to concealment, never even thought about a ND when re-holstering to be honest.

That being said, I have only drawn from concealment in a real life, high stress situation once before. And in that instance I kept my 26 trained on the guy until the SD arrived 1-2 min later at which point i put my gun down on the ground and let the Sheriffs do their thing. Gun went back after I had calmed down a bit.

If you are LEO and are holstering to put said guy in cuffs, I guess in the heat of the moment bad things could happen... but that is where safe training comes into play.

I re-holster my 17 in an IWB all the time for IPDA, Granted it is not super high stress, but right after the RO says make ready, my heart does go up a couple BPM.

I have Crossbreeds for my 26 and 36. Prior to my first Crossbreed I carried the 26 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II.

I carry a Glock 36 every day in a Galco deep cover in the left hand model. I carry the gun in the middle of my back for a right hand draw. I have never had a problem but I don't put my finger on the trigger until I am ready to shoot. When I re-holster my finger is off the trigger.

Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC IWB holster (I like this one because you can buy extra kydex bodies for as many guns as you own and swap them out and still use the same frame)

I carry a g22 with one in the pipe using the raven concealment vanguard 2(without lanyard) at 4 O'clock. It's a minimalist holster but it is my favorite kind after trying IWB and OWB kydex.

i tried carrying my glock 23 with that same holster, and it was just super SUPER uncomfy, i dont understand how anyone can use it, maybe because im using a glock 23?

Where do you carry it? Appendix carry was not comfortable to me, but 4-5 O'clock is. I wear 10 hours per day on average.

I too have some hesitation at times when holstering. I remind myself to do it carefully, making sure there is nothing to catch in the triggerguard. There is nothing to be won by holstering quickly.

For leather I like TT Gunleather, and Occidental Leather is their quick ship holster line. I'd say that they are on par with Milt Sparks.

For kydex I like JM Custom Kydex. Not the popular Raven-like holsters but comfortable and effective nonetheless. You also get a short wait time in comparison to the industry standard.

I EDC my Glock 27 or 23 in my Kholster half-moon and have been for 2 years.

http://www.kholster.com/

I carry at 3 o'clock. I don't look when unholstering and practice my draw from concealment at the action range. I always look when holstering; even when carrying OWB. I did a little trimming on the bottom piece of leather on the kholster so it fit me a little more comfortably.

I've been using an N8 2 Pro for about a year, for my G27. Very comfortable. Holstering is never a concern .. obviously need to make sure clothing is clear with any holster.

And yes I carry will on in the pipe.

I made the holster with a kit for about $30

Comp-Tac M-Tac for my 17. The leather's comfortable, and the kydex ensured even pressure on the whole gun. Also because of the kydex, draw and reholstering was easy to do without looking. Heck, I've taken defensive pistol classes with it, and even with drawing from under a t-shirt, could beat the average shooter to the target.

I understand your hesitation on re-holstering a Glock. I carry a G26 in a CompTac MTAC, and have not had any problems with re-holstering. Once in a while, I feel the pucker factor, but I normally don't think much of it. Just take your time re-holstering the pistol, and feel for any resistance. Never force or jam the weapon into the holster.

That said, on a normal daily routine I try to unholster/re-holster as little as possible. The gun stays loaded in the holster pretty much 24/7. I take the holster/gun off at night and put it in the nightstand or in the safe. In the morning, I put the rig back on. Easy peasy. No reason to unnecessarily handle the pistol.

Don't Laugh. (I hear that, dammit)


Shootingsystems - IWB - Size 5C (http://shootingsystems.com/concealment_holsters/inside_the_waistband_belt_clip_holster_iwb/) (Glock 23)


I have used this little rig for my G23, and now my G36... for Decades.

W/ a 3:30 - 4:00 carry it is Extremely comfortable and secure.

Hike/hunt/EDC w/it.

It is a SD holster, not a duty holster. I don't worry that it is soft mouthed and a little tricky to reholster. When I pull from it, I am usually going to shoot something and have time to put it away when I'm done - not wave it around and then reholster and continue a foot pursuit.

The only mod I made was to cut off the clip-loop on the other side (it's ambi and don't use it) that made it even slimmer and more comfortable.

And taking the trigger guard horn off the Glock goes a long way to ease reholstering, as that damn thing hangs on everything.


And it's inexpensive... which I also like a lot. :D

Comp-Tac CTAC is the ideal IWB holster for my Glock 19.

I will never understand how people can carry with a massive leather pad pressed up against their skin. Of course I live in Phoenix, where my Glock has sweat dripping off of the muzzle when I unholster at the end of a long day of IWB carry.

Or get a proper holster instead of grinding down your Glock...

+1 For N82tactical, I have one of their IWB holster, not the pro, just their basic model, and I love it, used to carry my G27 in there all the time, and yes 1 in the chamber, but I think carrying without a chambered round is foolish...seriously, get a good holster that covers the trigger guard and keep your booger hook away from the bang-switch until you are on target and you will never have a problem :p

I have since sold the G27 but still use the holster for my G19 on occasion, though it is rare that I carry that since I have several other guns that are much easier to conceal...but for jacket weather the Glock does get carried, and it gets carried in the N82 holster.
