There are many more concealable OWB options for CCW. Make sure you have a good, dedicated carry belt and check out the Glock Sport/Combat (inexpensive, high & tight), Don Hume 721OT (good value and very comfy), etc.

Fobus paddles are great for the range, though.

I bought a roto for my G23..Hated it, it's in a drawer somewhere..The roto makes it stick out farther..It would make a good range holster I guess...

Friends don't let friends use Fobus.

Comp-Tac has a great paddle holster.

I personally do not like paddle holsters. Under stress you can draw and the gun will come out with holster and all. I found this out during a Tac pistol class and will never use in a every day carry rig.

Some really good points. For many a high riding OWB will work better, IMO . I agree on the Comp-Tac they make very well put together holsters far better than some that get a lot of hype.

I have a Safariland paddle holster for a G19 that not only locks the G19 in, but locks the holster to my belt/pants. It actually took me a while to get proficient at getting the holster off without getting undressed.
The release for the G19 is very easy to use, but also secures the G19 against grabs very well.

This. I got the roto for my G30SF. It sticks out a country mile. I use it as a range holster, but mostly it never sees the light of day.

Have this same holster too. OWB but love it for use at the range.

I have a Fobus paddle for my model 19. I got a model 38 a couple months ago and didn't like the Fobus model for it, too long. I bought Comp Tac paddle holster and will never go back to Fobus. The Fobus is thinner plastic and is made of several pieces riveted together. The Comp Tac is one piece of much thicker plastic that is folded and molded to make the holster and paddle with the only mechanical connection under the (behind) the lower receiver. If you have a Fobus on your hip and snag it on something it might tear the holster off the paddle. I haven't tried it but if that happened with the Comp Tac I'd be willing to bet it would rip your belt off before the holster broke.

Here's a comparison with photos that I posted a while back: http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1411965

I'll second that. Not very concealable but great holster nonetheless. The ALS locking mechanism is simple, fast, and safe. This holster is also ridiculously inexpensive.

I use the Safariland 6378 for work and some off duty carry, I also have the Comp-Tac paddle holster. The CT is great for off duty use with shorts and a t-shirt, it rides nice and close and is secure. The great thing about CT is their return policy, if you don't like the holster they allow returns w/in thirty days as I recall.

Never had that happen with any of my Comp-Tac paddles in the 7yrs I've been using them. Been through all sorts of training and competition in that time. Rolling around, H2H, Force on Force, what have you. Always stayed right where I put it.

I've never used a Comp-Tac, but my issues were with a Blackhawk Serpa paddle holster. I do have a Comp-Tac Minotaur IWB holster that is amazing.

The Fobus holster isn't a bad holster. Any paddle holster can give you fits on being secure in the pants. I have found out, make sure you have a good belt and the you are putting the paddle all the way in. Several friends were having problems with their 'paddle' holsters; upon further review, they were not getting the holster all the way down and locked under the paints belt.

The key to using any holster is training/practicing with it.

Good luck!

Another vote for the Comp-tac paddle holsters. I have several of them and never a problem. These days I pretty much carry any of my pistols in various Comp-tac holsters. Bill

Ah. Gotcha. I'm not a fan of the way Blackhawk does their paddles, either. Very flimsy. I can certainly see that letting go on you!

I second that statement. I made the same mistake with a G21.
