Rugged Holster

I am looking for a tough holster for woods use. Camping, hunting, hiking etc. It will be for the G20, so a holster for the G21 should fit too.

Thought about a good leather one but it would probably break down quicker from moisture, dirt and grime etc.

I checked for the blackhawk serpa but didn't see one, maybe I missed it. Also thought about the cheap nylon ones at Wal-mart or something but I don't really like them.

I already have IWB, looking for OWB.

Thanks guys!

How do you like these for the range? Would they serve the purpose for a hiking carry option?

Check out opticsplanet.com, they have lots of cheap owb holsters. I got one for six bucks that I really like. And if it gets torn up, theyre cheap enough to just buy another.

Thanks for the input guys! Looks like I have some looking to do.

It seems like the Glock holster might be a little wobbly on the belt?? True or no?

I like the Bianchi, have their stuff for duty gear and it is pretty awesome.

I must have missed the Serpa rig, I will look again.

Doesn't have to be cheap either. If it is sturdy and has good quality I am willing to pay the money for it.

I use the Serpa or sometimes just my old Fobus. People make fun of the cheap Fobii, but mine work just fine around the house/property.

I know it is leather but I have used this holster with my 17 for 3 years and it is awesome. I will not let go of your gun either. I showed it to the guys at a local gunshop and 2 of them ordered them, and they noew stock them. I have changed motors in cars with this on, rode four wheelers, hunted driven from WV to AZ to OR to MT and back to WV with this on in the car. Not one stitch is coming out yet, well worth the money.

I actually really like that holster and hadn't thought about it. Lots of our guys use that holster while off duty or office duty.

The Glock combat holster is my "go to holster" for hiking, camping, fishing, ATV riding, range, concealed, etc.
It is tough as nails, cheap, and holds the weapon very close to the body.
It is UnGlockly not to own one!!!

Not saying you can't draw fast from there but I would say I could draw faster from my hip. That's where it always is, that's where I train from.

Ill second Blade Tech.

The holster on the right was worn daily for over 10 years, much of that in the woods (I work and play outside). The one on the left was a new unused back up. I still have the one on the right, although it hasnt been used for a number of years now. Its still fine and Id use it again without hesitation. In all those years, I broke a piece of the sweat shield off, and replaced the straps a couple of times. Othher than that, it was trouble free. Before that holster, I was going through two Galco Royal Guards a year at about $75 a pop. That holster cost me about $50. That 1911 lasted a year in the Glaco's before it rusted heavily and had to be refinished. Never had much of a rust problem once I went to Blade Tech.

I went to the Blackhawk site to order a Serpa for my 30sf. That being said, I'd go with a Simply Rugged pancake holster. Leather will last a long time if you take care of it and you can wear big guns with the Simply Rugged holsters all day long.

Hiking is what I used it for when I lived in Tennessee. I never used it for the range. There I used its baby brother, which I still use for OWB today.

BTW - MidwayUSA usually has them both in stock for under $15 each. The police supply house who's name cannot be spelled here also has them usually. (Rhymes with Motach)No tax or shipping there.

I'd say my blade-tech is my most sturdy holster. They are built with pretty thick kydex and have sturdy attachments. I'd spring for a blade-tech if I were you.
