    Hi!
    I have searched this forum and the Blade-Tech Nano seems to be recommended most often. However, I also like the looks of the Raven Ghost. Has anyone used both of these holsters? Pros and cons of each?
    TIA!

    I have both, like both, but prefer the Ghost. Pictured below is a G38/Nano on the left and a G19/traditional Blade-tech on the right. Also, a photo of the G38 in a Ghost, which is not IWB.

    I'm running my G39 in a MTAC, and I can't imagine a better holster exsisting. I have tried many many brands, for IWB carry, and none were as comfortable.

    OWB carry, I like any of the kydex holsters, but I think Uncle Mikes makes the most sturdy product.


    You will notice my holster extends down past where my slide stops. It has the slide style body on it, and I could carry a 37, 38, or 39 in it.

    I have the same holster, albeit left-handed. You can carry just about any Glock in it.

    In fact, I use it for my G17 (which I rarely carry anymore); today, my wife tried it out with her S&W M&P 9c to see if she liked the holster (she did, ordering a right-handed M&P version for her today).

    I just received my MTAC with the 37, 38, 39 slide kydex Thursday and have been carrying my 38 since to get a good feel for it. I am very impressed with it so far. Very comfortable, so comfortable on my bike, in the car and on the couch I forgot it was on until I actually stood up and could feel the weight.

    I think it's time to adjust the cant but so far the way they shipped it has done just fine.

    Below is a photo of the Raven Phantom holster, which is a modular design.

    I carry my G38 in a Blade-Tech Nano and I'm very happy with it.

    I've been carrying my G38 in a Comp-tac paddle slide, and I like it very much. I have an M-tac for the 9/40 Glocks and endorse it for IWB carry.

    The Raven stuff looks well made, and all of the reviews seem to be positive, but I have no firsthand experience.

    I have been reading reviews yesterday and this morning for the mentioned holsters and from what I have seen, it appears that the Raven Ghost holds the weapon higher and tighter to the body than others. Also, Danny recommended it and I have come to respect his opinions so I will order the Ghost. :supergrin: Thanks to all for your responses.

    How loose are the 'small frames' in it? Just thinking about ordering one for my new-to-me G29, but this sounds like it might allow all of the others to fit if I decided to carry them (everything from a G20 down to the G27). I like 'multi-purpose'. :cool:

    I got this for my G39 on Ebay. This shop always has auctions for this holster. Wears real well off duty w/ jeans at 5 o'clock (above right rear pocket). It is light and cheap. I think it was The Holsterstore.com

    Good luck finding one, but my choice is a Bluegrass Hybrid IWB/OWB:

    Oh no, the holster bodys are made to fit specific frames. I had to swap out the body, where I did carry a G23, to one that fits the GAP's.

    Try carrying the slimmer G23 with the GAP kydex body. That's what I do with my G17.
