Recommend a Holster for Glock 43
 
I just bought a Glock 43 today. I'm looking for a kydex AIWB holster with mag caddy. Currently, I'm using G-Code Incog holsters for my Glock 19 and Shield. I love them. I think they're great but I want to try other manufacturers. Thanks in advance.

Will you have any accessories on the 43?

I have a Stealth Gear Revolution for my Glock 19 and the CYA from Amazon for my Shield. I use them when I donít want to carry with an extra mag. Iím looking for a holster with mag caddy for the Glock 43.

Tier 1 concealed hands down best out there

They look fantastic. Iím liking the AGIS and AXIS. Do you have any experience with either?

If youíre 100% set on a mag caddy tier 1 concealed, been reading a lot on them and their axis or agis look great (whichever has the para cord not the leather). If youíre flexible, veil solutions apex or ghost. I have the apex for my 26 and itís super comfortable.

I have the axis slim, 3 of them actually lol. Sucks the wait is a few weeks to a month but itís worth it.

I use Osborn Holsters for my Glock 43.
I switch between the SuperMini Apendex IWB and TacticalTuck IWB depending on my attire.

Osborn Holsters has sales almost every major holiday, which typically drops the price to around $60 for two holsters.

The axis slim is the one I prefer the most. I’m a little worried about the clip being closer together. On my Revolution, the clips are too close together and it annoys the crap out of me. There’s a bulge. I carry at the 12:30 position so the left clip doesn’t clear the jean’s button. I like the right clip before the first right belt loop so it holds the holster in place. I then shift my buckle to the right to sandwich the clip between the buckle and belt loop. It’s rock solid. My first priority is concealment. I’m willing to sacrifice a little comfort. All my other setups are completely concealed when I carry. I feel it’s your top priority not to print.

Tier 1 Concealed hands down

polymerfarmer 11-23-2018 11:13 AM

Ever try llod? Last line of defense... They have a really great rig. Also have you ever tried the armalaser green laser on it? That's my setup and I absolutely love it!

If your in Orange County and either want to meet us at the OC Gun Show or come to our Lake Forest Concealed Carry store you well come to try on a great holster for your G43. We give 10% of to LEO's so be sure to let us know. We have single and double mag holsters for the G43 that are tuckable like our holsters and super comfortable, and we have +2 mag extensions for the G43 all in stock.

Can someone explain to me the pros of an attached mag caddie? What makes an attached mag caddy better than a stand alone mag pouch positioned in essentially the same place? Seems like a stand alone mag pouch would offer greater flexibility for positioning and allow the holster to tuck in better along the body line...but I know Tier 1 has solved that problem with their flexible attachment.

I bought a Tier 1 Concealed AGIS and have been using it for about three months now. Itís gnarly. I can detach the mag caddy. I donít usually do it because having it attached makes a more solid rig and it flows a lot better on the body. I love it so much I bought another one for my P365. Thereís another thread about T1C holsters.

Thatís a good looking holster. I donít like the one clip though. I was using a Stealth Gear Scorpion Plus Ventcore and I didnít like it one bit. After a week I gave it to my friend.

This is for Appendix carry only, anywhere else and having the mag attached to the holster is generally a mistake. This also anticipates you only want to carry one mag, and that your physique allows for the space required with the gun you choose to carry.

#1 easy access to the mag, if you were able to draw the gun you should still be able to reach down and pull a mag, everything is towards your center, and a natural reach, you don't have to look to undo your belt or pull down your zipper same for the mag.

#2 most of the better rigs have followed down the same path and are flexible at the joint between the holster and mag and some like the Icog allow you to remove the mag holder should you want for some reason.

#3 if your going to carry appendix and one mag on center line the attached rig will usually be more comfortable and efficient than a split system.

#4 being just a little tongue in cheek or snarky all the cool former special ops operators conceal carry this way. i.e. Travis Haley, John Lovell, etc. However remember these individuals are trained and experienced at creating space if an event starts at touch distances.



If your going to carry more than one mag then a dual mag holster at the 8 to 9 position for the right handed person would be preferable.

Tenicor. If you don't like it you can send it back.

Some former operators carry sidecar style holsters, many do not (Defoor, Pannone, McNamara). It's all personal preference.

I guess I'm still not seeing it. You could position a stand alone mag in exactly the same spot as if it were attached to the holster. And yes, a lot of the newer/better rigs are now flexing in the middle because I think folks (finally) realized that not flexing, is a negative to this form factor. But I still see no appreciable benefit to having the mag attached.

MAYBE it's a little easier when you go to put it all on because it's one piece, but that seems like a pretty trivial "plus" to me...if it even is one. And the downside to having the mag attached is that you have far more flexibility with regards to positioning both the mag carrier and the holster if they are stand alone pieces.

Personally I think sidecars are a solution looking for a problem. But to each his own. :)

polymerfarmer 11-30-2018 4:51 PM

Yeah everybody's different. I prefer the extra mag all-in-one unit. And I actually prefer the single solid piece with an angle to it. When it flexes it tends to flatten out and I like the angle actually pushing the grip back into my body. Thanks and take care

Really it gets down to the fit. On the rigs that use one clip it can be (each persons build is different) fit better because it lays to one side of the belt buckle. A two clip rig can be OK, but depends on the separation between the clips and the size of belt buckle you wear. The AIWB with mag also assumes you only carry one spare mag which for all the tough guys outside of California carrying a Glock 19 with standard (California High Capacity) mags can work OK. If your carrying a G43 or Shield realizing most situations wont require even on reload, I still like to carry two. Personal choice.
