Hi folks,

I'm looking for a leather OWB holster for my Glock 22, daily carry, along with a leather gun belt.

Requirements:
-Open-bottomed design (I'm open to a closed bottomed design)
-Open-topped design (NO retention clips/straps)
-boned outward for comfort, rather than a flat pancake design
-NO retention screws
-preferred to have it stay open when I draw, for one-handed reholstering.

I wear an undershirt, so sweat-guards are not a requirement.

I'm also looking for a gun-belt to go with it. Price of both of these together CANNOT exceed $150; preferrably less than that!

So far, Gould & Goodrich looks good.

Thanks everyone!

Holster:
Galco Concealable

Belt:
Aker B21

To make sure they somewhat match, I recommend getting them in Black.

To the people replying to this thread:
Pay attention to the OP's requirements!
Everyone seems to be recommending holsters that do not fit the OP's requirements.
The Kholster is a hybrid, not solid leather.
All the holsters listed by Reswob are pancake style, the OP is looking for something like the Galco Concealable or Aker Flatsider series (but without the tension screw that the Aker's have).

The OP is looking for a holster that is formed like "A"...not "B"

I use Mitch Rosen for all my leather holster/belt needs.

I currently use a premier express holster with his express belt.


The holster is $100 shipped and the belt is 80 shipped. You don't necessarily have to go with both at the same time. The holster works with your belt as it is a custom made holster.

Seems like "A" would stick out from your body much more than "B". I can attest to the first holster I linked to being very concealable, and comfortable to wear. Only reason I got rid of it was I'm not a leather fan.

"A" looks like the holster is worn above the hip. "B" looks like a belly carry.

When done right, there is no difference in concealability between the two. There is, however, a difference in comfort.

Wm. Tucker, 'HF-1' and tooled gun belt. Some of the best quality gunleather I've ever worn! Pistol's butt is held in nice 'n tight to my side, and never, 'patterns'.

I have an HF-1. They're excellent holsters. Not necessarily the absolute best for permitee carry (there are flatter options) but just plain awesome holsters, and worth every penny.

How about a professional style holster?

-Open top and bottom design
-metal reinforcement piece for easy re-holstering
-not a pancake style
- no sweat guard on this model

:shocked: Hot damn!

This has to be the first time you, and I have agreed on anything! :supergrin:



NOTE: Triage, that is beautiful work! I'll buy my next gun belt from you. :)

I also like Tucker http://www.tuckergunleather.com/ and I also like Ryan Grizzle holsters http://www.rgrizzleleather.com/index.html

There are other people that make great products, but the wait times can be very long so I will not mention them.

I like the speed scabbard by desantis works well for all my pistols.

My old Bianchi Model 4/4L works great after 23 years.

I have found that Falco offers a tremendous value on their leather. Many are made as ordered so there is usually about a 4 week wait to get them but the quality you get for the price is hard to beat. Made in Europe.

One word...FIST.
FIST holsters are as close to custom as you will find and VERY affordable.
Superior to any Galco I've ever owned and right up there with Kramer, IMO.
