IWB Conceal Suggestions

Just purchased my first Glock. I bought a 23 GEN 4 for conceal carry. I am having difficulties with which IWB holster would work best for me. I am 6ft and 170lbs. Slim build. Looking at the Galco SC2 or King Tuk. For my size, are these ideal or are there better options? Hoping for ideas from similar builds. Thanks

I have just about your same frame. I just recently got the comp-tac Minotaur and I love it. I carry a full size G21 in it and it conceals very well and is really comfortable.

Are you already set on your carry "position"? If you are slim I believe appendix carry has much to offer. I tried carrying behind my hip and just could not get comfortable with that position. If you are interested in appendix carry I can offer holster suggestions.....

I have been thinking about carrying behind my hip. Not sure what would be better. Open to suggestions.

6'3" and 177 lbs. I go the inexpensive route and carry both my G26 and G19 in Remora holsters http://www.remoraholsters.com/

You can move your weapon all around, take it out (if/when needed) and use it stuck between the seat and console of a vehicle if desired. All using one holster.

+1 on the Remora holster. I have one with the full sweat shield for my G27 and it is great. Check them out!

Remora is too thick for my g26. I've been using a $10 Uncle mikes and it works really well actually. Looking to pickup a PJs soon.

IWB behind your hip is the position usually described as 3:30 or 4 if your right handed, and 8 or 8:30 if your left handed. You will likely have to buy a couple of holsters before you find the one that just works perfectly for you. That said, I highly recommend http://www.hhholsters.com/. The guy who makes these is fantastic and will customize your holster to just about any desire you could have. Great customer service and amazing quality. Cross Breed Super Tucks (it is often abbreviated here on Glock Talk as CBST) are also popular, but will run you much more than what you get from H.H. Holsters. Seriously, check them out.

Do a search as there are at least 100 threads on this subject.
I use a Crossbreed Supertuck. Great holster only topped by better customer service.

I have a holster from them or my ruger SR40C. I am thinking about ordering another one for my G26. I was also thinking about the Galco Kingtuk.

I'm 6'-2" 170lbs, my 23 in a CompTac MTac at about the 4-4:30 position on my right hip disappears under even just a T-Shirt.

Whatever holster you get, try various combinations of, cant both forward and rearward, and height along with slight variations around your desired position of carry.

I did this and now carry a 4" barrel .357 Mag revolver with no problem at all. No printing and a T shirt or Sweatshirt cover.

I'm 6'2" and 220 lbs. My favorite is Crossbreed and TheisHolsters.

There are a lot of holsters out there so you have a lot to choose from. I'm 6 ft 6 in and 220 lbs. I carry a glock 30 in a blade-tech "razor" holster behind my right hip and it is very comfortable. Its kydex so its very slim and almost indestructable. I also have one for a g 27. Its not the only good holster out there, but it works for me.

And lets not forget, even the best holster is no good without a good belt.

I use a Stickyholster (similar to Remora) for my EMP9 & BP9cc. For my G19 my favorite IWB is Blade-Tech Nano.

I'm a little heavier (6'2" and about 190) but find my G27 or G23 in a Galco King Tuk behind the right hip and under a loose shirt or other outer garment to be comfortable all day, with or without a T shirt between it and the skin.

6'0, 190 lbs, slim build & should weigh 175.... darn that Thanksgiving turkey! I'm not a fan of hybrid holsters, but hey, that's me. I've used Blade-Tech NANO, Galco & Kramer IWB holsters. Liked 'em all but with a preference toward leather. I've read some good advice here regarding holster cant. For me, different firearms carry, well, differently. I like a straight drop for my Kimber Solo and an FBI forward cant for my G19.... so for me it's been a try/wear and see method of determining the right holster/gun combo. I think that's why we all end up with a dresser drawer dedicated to 'spare' holsters.

If you or anyone else would like to try a Remora holster in the Denver area go to the gun show at the Denver Merchandise Mart this weekend. (12/1 & 12/2)

There is one vendor there that sells Remoras for many different sized pistols. The vendor is Western Images Leatherworks, and yes, they make and sell their own leather belts, holsters, and mag holders. But, they also sell Remora holsters.

As you walk in the front door of the gun show go past the restrooms, their tables are on the back side of the restrooms near the entrance.

The advantage of the Remoras is that there is no clip on the holster. You can place it anywhere in your waistband at any cant angle. You can even move it to another spot in your waistband for standing, sitting, driving, etc. throughout the day.

I don't work for Western Images, but know they let you try out holsters with their blue guns. I have bought two Remoras from them.

Bill

I have to vote for the remora/sticky hoslter . I have the sticky for my G23/G36 and one for my S&W 649 J frame. The comfort is great , you can move it around to fit what position you are in, and I can also tuck my shirt in and you can't see anything. I also use a White Hat Max Tuck(which I like very much) but the Sticky is better. The Remora and the Sticky is petty much the same thing. I believe the two owners were partners in Remora.

I'm 5'10, 160 lbs, and I stuff a glock 26 is a holster similar to a galco King-tuk. Had that been available for lefty, I wouldn't have had to make my holster. They were slated to start production on them for another 6 months at the time, I didn't want to wait.

It's an ideal holster, the option to tuck a shirt in is awesome. Obviously, you don't have to, and the holster still works fine. Great setup.
