View Full Version : Deep concealment OWB holster... does it exist

I have been trying to CC OWB my G27 lately and have not found a setup I like. I have tried the cheapo glock sports holster, a little bear hybrid holster, and a few others in my friends network and they all have the same problem. The belt is lower on the gun than I like it so the bottom of the grip is much higher than I want it. I am trying to replicate the same deep position my G27 rides IWB but OWB. Does a hostler exist like this. Below is a crude diagram of what I am looking for: Red = The general belt position of every OWB holster I have tried, Green = where I want the belt to sit relative to the gun. (Even a little higher would be OK.)

Fist K2 High Ride. It's my daily carry and perfect in every way. It sits higher than where you want, but that shouldn't defer you from understanding that this holster has a great cant and tucks right into your side extremely well. I have no flop out whatsoever. Granted, you have to use a good firm belt too.

you're not really a serious gun owner until you have at least one drawer/big box/big bag/bottom of the closet/suitcase full of holsters you thought would do the trick....happy hunting,

Quick observation: If the belt is higher in relation to the gun, that means the barrel will be sitting lower. IWB that's fine, because it's covered by your pants/slacks/jeans/whatever.

But OWB, I would be concerned that moving the gun lower will lead to that much more of a risk of your cover-garment coming up and revealing more than you want.

Just something to think about while you're shopping.

If you carry more than one make, type or model of handguns it get even bigger!

Galco Matrix 7X works very well with my Glock G26. It tucks in very tight against my body and is about the same width as my belt. The fore and aft mounting points make it very stable (if never shifts around on you).

You can install and remove it from your belt without having to drop your pants or un-thread your belt. It provides decent weapon retention, easy draw, easy re-holstering and is very inexpensive. I like mine and bought one for my son's 92FS.

My all-time favorite holster is my Milt Sparks VMII, but the Matrix is my favorite OWB holster. The Maxtrix works equally well for my G17 also.

Regarding the ride height. I have a Galco 2nd Amendment Holster that rides about like you want. It is very difficult to get a clean draw from that holster because the pistol grip is almost touching the belt. This should be less of a problem with OWB carry, but I am not enamored of holsters that ride too low on the belt.

For OWB carry having the gun ride higher above your belt also means it is less likely to show below your cover garment. You don't really think any OWB holster is going to be covert without a cover garment do you?

Be sure you can still get a good purchase on the grip..

Tucked too far below your belt, may be a problem..

Exactly this. I make my own Kydex holsters. The above is very good advice.
Depending on the position on your belt where you wear your weapon, you may want more of a forward cant to help hide it.

Also, more forward cant, a little lower on the waist it can ride, and you can still get good purchase on your grip.
