    just picked up a G29, ordered a grip plug and mag extensions.......no to see what holsters are out there that work by regular folks who use them every day....thinking of the "el cheapo" Glock holster....seems to do what i want and at a very good price but i'd like to hear from the everyday Joe/Jane on what they use....

    ha ha, nice but not a G29.

    kip thats nice.....

    one thing i see about some of the IWB hybred rigs is all the polymer (plastic) span on the rig....while it helps make it stable it doesnt form to the shape of your body like leather. also, many use plastic belt clips instead of leather belt loops.

    i guess in a perfect world i could buy a rig like the Milt Sparks "Watch Six" without the $135.00+ price tag.

    Haven't got the hang of posting pics yet, but I've carried a G29 in a Galco Concealable since Sept. of '97.
    4 different gun shop jobs, 1 gun, 1 holster.
    The Galco isn't cheap, but they last.
    My oldest Galco isn't even marked Galco, it's marked as being from "The Original Jackass Leather Co." & was made when they were still in Glenview, IL.
    It's for a 4" S&W "N" frame & has been in use almost forever.
    The only time I don't use a Galco is for USPSA/IPSC competition, as Kydex is faster. But I wouldn't want to wear one all day.

    My G29 is my hiking gun. So it gets carried in my Blackhawk waist pack. :)

    yeah, ive pondered that but im trying to stay away from the whole man purse thing.:rofl:


    seriously, the man purse doesnt go with just any dress code. i need something that i can use when casually dressed or suited up for Sunday dinner so to speak. you know, to carry a gun without looking like youre carrying a gun or a first aid kit or girl scout cookies or a portable oxygen can.....

    I know everyone has a tendency to look a little sideways at the fanny pack like a old retired tourist doing the full Sarasota ( straw sun hat, plaid shorts up to the chest, black socks and sandals), but if you hike for a long distance a holster is a little uncomfortable. Those packs are mutil-purpose.

    i see your point, but if you only hike 10% of the time youre up and about......just saying.

    im not looking for a hiking rig or wilderness rig, or out in the woods rig.......im talking about regular everyday going to the grocery store, movie theater, resturant, social gatherings, parties, school plays and school sports....


    id like a Milt Sparks W6 clone without the Milt Sparks W6 price....

    thanks for input just the same though.

    The Galco Royal Guard is the IWB holster I keep coming back to. It's expensive but you only have to buy it once.

    I haven't found a great OWB holster yet, but the Glock holster works pretty well and you can't beat the price.

    On a more serious note. check this out it may just be what you are looking for and you can customize to your liking.

    Just saw that the pics are gone. I saved a copy to my MS Word. I put a copy of the pic in my albums so go to my profile.

    It's not only about the dreaded gender-confusion issue of a "man purse," ;) ... but in many parts of the Republic a fanny/waist pack SCREAMS:

    "I have a pistol in here!"

    It's well-known among civies, BadGuys and LE what packs of that recognizable shape are designed to hold - especially in black (whether "tactical" or otherwise).

    I use to like them, but they've long since lost their "discreetness" in public venues. Plus I've found, having handled several makes of them, that waist packs are generally slower to draw from, certainly slower than the SideArmor IWB holding my G29 at my 4 o'clock.

    In the same time needed to pull down the front of the pack in order to access the interior holster or holder, I could have my G29 drawn from IWB and leveled at the "target's" face.

    And the SideArmor makes for a friggin' quick 10mm-in-your-face draw stroke. :shocked:

    :cool:

    The 29 is in the smaller Safepacker. The one on the right holds a G20.

    I ordered a Galco Concealable Belt holster for my G29 SF as it looks to hold the gun close to the waist and should be no problem with one of my polos over it.

    How's it going brother been a while. How are the TFO's holding up on your G29?

    I'm considering them for my G29SF but worried about the longevity issues some have had with them.

    Thanks :wavey:
