Glock 17 holsters

Hey does anyone know of a good small of the back (SOB) holster for a 17 Gen 4. Also looking for a good IDPA holster for the same pistol.

For small of the back I recommend Theis. IDPA, maybe a Don Hume 721...

I have a Galco SOB. Pretty good holster for summer carrry under a shirt, but I don't use it often. For IDPA I like either the non-serpa Blackhawks or Blade Tech.

Have you carried a large firearm SOB previously? If not I wouldn't start now, it is generally considered about the worst possible carry position, no matter how cool it looks on TV and in the movies. Why would you want a large blocky object sitting directly over the base of your spine where it's going to cause all kinds of problems if you slip and fall on your back. There is also a tendency for cover garments to get caught on the firearm leaving it completely exposed to everyone but you.

I'm partial to Comp-Tac for synthetic holsters, Sideguard Holsters for leather. If you want a real challenge, shoot IDPA with your carry rig.

+1 agree 100%
even if you never fall or get hit at SOB holster this kind of carrying might get you some health problem from body moisture got between holster and skin - it's my own experience, not hearsay. I would never carry that way again.

It's also impossible to get at in a car, from the driving position, and when you crouch, you either print or show off to everyone.

+1 for IDPA with your carry rig. That's what I do, and I love it.

I have to agree I have a Desantis SOB holster that rarely gets used. Its not possible to draw from when in the car not to mention uncomfortable. I personally feel that a compact glock or larger pistol is too large for that type of carry. And it prints or shows really easily as others have said without you being aware of it. Standing in the line at a store with you being unaware your gun is on display is not a good thing.

I forgot to mention - Glocktalkers also live in fear of falling on their backs and being paralyzed by a gun carried there, so if you want an SOB holster, don't mention it here.

My dad mexican carried a 1911 when he drove truck. Years of abuse to his lower spine. It's not about GT, it's about experience. If it's comfortable to you, no one's stoppin ya, just trying to save you some grief we all went through.

I use a SideArmor for IDPA. It works great for me. I'm going to use it for USPSA also when I get started in that a couple of weeks from now.
