Always in search of the perfect holster..

or so it seems...

My Glock 27 has presented some problems carry wise. I'm a big guy and the Blackhawk Serpa, although good for open carry, like when I'm on my farm is fine, it sticks out too much when I'm trying to carry it under a shirt...

I bought a Fobus, had all sorts of problems with it, mainly it was too tight and I darn near jerked my pants up to my ears when drawing..

Anyway, I was looking at some Bianchi and Galco leather at a gunstore and I also saw a Tagua paddleholster.....the leather is thicker on the Tagua and the paddle seems to work better,,and it was almost half the price, so I bought it and I've been using it for a week now and it seems to be doing the trick..

I'm of the mindset no one holster or carry method fits all situations. With that in mind I don't mind the holster box with various options.

One of the main variables often is semi-open/woods carry to deeper concealment.

I'm digging my very affordable Galco Matrix (M7X) with snap-on belt loops. It is light, compact, and fits my G-26 and G-17. It is also easy on and off. It's like a Glock Sport/Combat holster with snap-on belt loops. I also have on for my PM9.

The first holster I bought for my Glock fit fine and I quickly learned that if I pulled the pistol directly up from the holster I had no problems.

I too have been in search of the perfect carry holster.

Although pricey, I really like the Alesis CQC-S for an OWB holster.

Bucky, I like your holster thread and reviews. I'm trying to stop short of that level though.

Check out RM Holsters. I did a ton of research and looking around before making my first holster purchase. I decided on this one for my G23 and I love it. Check out the "Low Rider". Its very comfortable and disappears pretty darn well even with a normal shirt.

Fobus is bottom of the barrel. The glock sport is about the best, most cost effective option out there Avoid gimmicks and settling for what barely works instead of a quality holster. Choose a holster with two clips or loops. After clear of holsters that use only the tackiness of neoprene instead of properly attaching to your gunbelt. Run from trigger shoes that claim to be holsters. Most of the holsters suggested above are good holsters.

Alienware Cloak Tuck 2.0 seems good.

MIC Holster

I also am a big guy, and I found the MIC Holster by Glocktech to be the answer for me. $18 and it perfectly protects the trigger, adds ZERO width to your carry and I use it during the summers and winters. So far for me, all the other holsters are too bulky, though I do like the Uncle Mikes for my IWB. Yes, it is different, but so am I.

A holster model could be perfect for one gun but wrong for another gun.

A holster is a far better choice than a trigger shoe. The mention of Uncle Mike's takes me back. I haven't settled for a holster with a one size fits most sizing and a do-it-yourself Velcro retention strap in decades. They'd work fine if you couldn't get a quality holster. And that was often the case in those days. It was find a guy with a catalog, find a number of a mfr and call long distance, or settle for what you found locally. I remember paying long distance charges and driving hours for a pair of hiking boots or a holster. If you knew good gear, often the cost of locating and obtaining it was more than the cost of the equipment itself.

Take a look at N82 (Nate Squared.) They holster separates the entire pistol from your body; instead of having the grip digging into you.

My favorite Go-To holster now that I am older and will carry a BIG spare mag and a small pistol (G27) is...

Uncle Mikes #12 - Under $20, works well appendix, 3:00, and 4:00! At the end of the summer, or sooner, I wash it, rinse it, let it dry and we are good for another year.

IT's a floppy holster, so one handed reholster isn't speedy... but I just haven't found a legitimate reason to SPEED re-holster yet...

It will hold a G19, but it's not my first choice for the G19...
