the double phalanx by shielded holsters at the 4 0'clock postion. a one man operation. i swear by his well made, resonably priced holsters.

I use the Comp-Tac C-Tac Slide holster. It fits my 19 and my 17 perfectly and it used to carry my 27 and 23 quite nicely as well. I wear it in the 3:30 position on my right side. I like it because it is all Kydex and it makes for easy re-holstering when doing concealed carry training drills.

Garrett Industries Silent Thunder leather lined kydex.

Many styles to consider in his line.

Bad cellphone pic of mine. Crazy fast delivery times, too.

I have a 23 and 27.

I have tried the Galco Summer Comfort, Galco Stow and Go, but the one I use and find most effective is my Shielded Holster Phalanx. I bought mine for $50. It came to me in less than a week:

Shielded Holsters: IWB/OWB Option - YouTube.

My 23/27/36 fit the same holster.

I've been wearing mine for almost 2 years and I have one for my G30 and my Snubby revolvers. I also have a 2 magazine carrier by him.

Galco Tuck-N-Go. Not to be confused with a Stow-N-Go.
~ $30 shipped. 2:00, 3:00 4:00 IWB. Finds a natural, comfortable angle according to my body's contours wherever I'm wearing my G23.

My other carry is a Comp-Tac Paddle, OWB, ~$65 shipped.

I sold a bunch of holsters that I didn't wear to buy these. Including two MTACs - Very bulky on me.

The Kholster Holster is okay but, I just can't seem to find the right place on me that won't cause obvious printing when I'm moving around a lot.

I really like the MIC (Minimum Inside Carry) holster for appendix carry. Using a MIC is very similar to using a slide clip but, unlike the slide clip the MIC holster offer much greater trigger protection for preventing an AD. However, just like the slide clip there is a lot of gun to skin contact if don't regularly wear an undershirt. This is not an option for high humidity, 85++ degree tropical weather.

I am now trying out the CCW Breakaway shorts and recently purchased two more CCW Breakaway slacks for times when casual wear is not appropriate. The shorts are very comfortable, well made and are quickly becoming my favorite EDC holsters. If you are considering on trying out the CCW Breakaway pants, I'd suggest also getting their pocket trigger shield because it is an added layer of assurance for preventing any chance of printing.

N82 (Pronounced Nate Squared) Tactical

The reviews say they are very comfortable and it falls in my price range for now at about $40.

Appendix carry, Uncle Mike's Mr. Softie - I no longer have great concern for 'rapid re-holstering' of a 'hot' firearm... I'll take my time re-holstering, or placing it on the ground on 'command'... :supergrin:

Very comfortable, better access while driving...

Working so far, and my *back* really appreciates it! :cool:

I prefer OWB. But I am issued a crossbreed supertuck for suit details. It's a good holster. I already had one for my 1911.

When I carry a G17 in VT I do an IWB at 11 o'clock with no holster. It conceals VERY well and I carry Cond I. :supergrin:

I found a guy who makes holsters and he does a tremendous job. The one problem I always had with IWB clip holsters was there was no cant to them. He puts a cant in the clip, and the inside is so smooth it's unbelievable. I wear this normally at 4 o'clock and it is super comfortable.

I stopped using single clip holsters a long time ago. For ccw, they may get you by. Carry all the time, something more stable is appropriate.

I love TT Gunleather's Mike's Special slim. It's by far one of the best I've used. I also use the Comp-Tac Infidel. Its easy on,easy off and is very sturdy.

Custom leather only.

If money is an issue, NMHolsters #1 for $75. Actually works at 3:00.

If you are a leather snob and have the wallet to back it up, Brommeland Max Con V. 4:00 only.

I'll let you look 'em up. They have pics.

Any good reviews on the White Hat holsters??

Yes. I have both White Hat and Crossbreed. Both are excellent. White Hat is a bit less expensive and faster delivery. I started a thread comparing them here: http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1386701

I wear a G27 at about 4:00.

I am still trying to find the right set up. Started with CTAC at about 4:00.... then tried VM2, MTAC, Shielded, Brommeland MCV, CBST, MS 55BN, Fist K2, Rusty Sherrick High Ride, Secret City, and probably a few others. Still not 100% content. (yes, I have a box full of quality holsters).

I recently bought a Raven MD cut, and I need to give this a worthy test drive. Also, I should have a Raven standard cut for a G26 in my mail box today, and I will give this a worthy test drive. But until then, I think the CTAC comes the closest to the attributes I want:


Quality of draw (some holsters I've owned snags the front site, or does not provide a smooth draw otherwise - definitely unacceptable)
Comfort for all-day carry
Concealability
Stability/not shifting
Ease of reholstering (primarily want this for draw/dry-fire practice)
Easy on/off


I will decide and settle on a set up soon. For 4:00 carry, I'll try the Ravens, and possibly a Comp-Tac Infidel. I would love to make AIWB work, but have yet to give that an earnest attempt. Before deciding, I might try a Remora and Dale Fricke Archangel (albeit, if I go with AIWB, it will be with a G26 or G27).
