Default Pocket carry of Glock 27 - Perfect setup.

I have been carrying for 10 years. I hate IWB. I hate AIWB. I have tried a dozen or more holsters. For what it is worth, I am fit. 165lbs, 32" waist.

I found the perfect way to pocket carry my Glock 27. The Borai Holster. As you pull the gun out of your pocket, the holster detaches from the gun. The hook catches on your pants.

http://www.boraii.com/store/c4/GLOCK.html

It works perfect in jeans with an untucked shirt. Because of the design, there is no extra bulk. When the Borai holster is used alone, there is some printing because the gun rides at the bottom of your pocket. So, I found a solution. Combine the Borai with a universal pocket clip from Morse Industries.

The great thing about the clip is it makes the gun no longer print. The weight of the gun is no longer carried by the bottom of your pocket. It is carried by the top of the pocket higher up and covered by your shirt. The clip makes the gun more stable and easy to access. I have a strong Wilderness 5 stitch belt to support the weight.

I used to pocket carry my S&W 642. I tried the Galco Glock pocket holster. It looked like I had a brick in my pocket. The Borai works without the bulk.

To the haters ... Yes. It is pocket carry. I admit pocket carry will never be as fast as IWB. But, I hated IWB and didn't do it. I would rather be killed by terrorists than endure IWB. Fortunately, I can carry a real fighting gun.

This is the best setup I have ever tried. I am not affiliated with either company.

No problem. As you can tell, I am pretty excited about it. I have used it for 3 weeks straight. No downsides other than the fact it is pocket carry. The clip is the finishing touch that makes it workable.

Thank you, OP, this looks like a holster that I might seriously consider buying. However, the Morse clip at $25 before shipping makes me hesitant to go down that route. Does it really print that badly without the clip?

The problem with any pocket holster is that the weight of the gun rides at the bottom of the pocket. The bottom of the pocket is most visible by other people. The clip transfers this weight to the top of the pocket that is covered by your shirt.

It is a heavy gun. Without the clip it does print. Personally, I don't care about printing when I am not at work. At work, I don't want people wondering what the heck is in my pocket.

I saw the video on YouTube from the president of the company. It brings up a question about your set up.
Does the clip prevent you from getting a proper grip on the pistol? It seems to me the clip holds the right side of the pistol close to the outside of the pocket, which seems like it makes for a tight space to get your right hand between the pistol and the pocket?
Hard to tell from pics.

The clip does not cause a problem. I can actually get a better grip on it than when it is deep in the pocket.

But, it is still pocket carry. Pocket carry is slower than IWB.

But, I don't IWB because I don't feel like being uncomfortable every single hour of the day. There is a reason why there are SO MANY IWB holsters out there ... IWB sucks from a comfort standpoint.

So, now have a way to carry a real fighting gun. Not perfect. But, I actually do it.

The Universal Clip says it uses an adhesive to attach to the gun.

What is the nature of that adhesive....how strong is it....does it come off, either on purpose or not on purpose....liquid, gel, 3M tape or what?

I agree this is a great way to Pocket carry.

I have the same for my Ruger LC9S PRO. Hardly know it's there.

You've convinced me to go ahead and get the Glock 26/27. I have both.

Thanks

Bob

Oceanbob, that Ruger with the Borai looks like a nice setup. 9mm. Small. Looks perfect. If I didn't already have my G27, I would definitely consider that.

Just an update. It has been a month. I still love this holster. I got rid of the clip. I didn't like the feel of the clip on the slide when manipulating the gun. I use the Borai holster with my G27 every single day.

This holster has been the single best gun accessory I have purchased in 30 years. Hands down, no contest.
