    Hi folks,

    I'm looking for a leather OWB holster for my Glock 22, daily carry, along with a leather gun belt.

    Requirements:
    -Open-bottomed design (I'm open to a closed bottomed design)
    -Open-topped design (NO retention clips/straps)
    -boned outward for comfort, rather than a flat pancake design
    -NO retention screws
    -preferred to have it stay open when I draw, for one-handed reholstering.

    I wear an undershirt, so sweat-guards are not a requirement.

    I'm also looking for a gun-belt to go with it. Price of both of these together CANNOT exceed $150; preferrably less than that!

    So far, Gould & Goodrich looks good.

    Thanks everyone!

    Holster:
    Galco Concealable

    Belt:
    Aker B21

    To make sure they somewhat match, I recommend getting them in Black.

    To the people replying to this thread:
    Pay attention to the OP's requirements!
    Everyone seems to be recommending holsters that do not fit the OP's requirements.
    The Kholster is a hybrid, not solid leather.
    All the holsters listed by Reswob are pancake style, the OP is looking for something like the Galco Concealable or Aker Flatsider series (but without the tension screw that the Aker's have).

    The OP is looking for a holster that is formed like "A"...not "B"

    I use Mitch Rosen for all my leather holster/belt needs.

    I currently use a premier express holster with his express belt.


    The holster is $100 shipped and the belt is 80 shipped. You don't necessarily have to go with both at the same time. The holster works with your belt as it is a custom made holster.

    Seems like "A" would stick out from your body much more than "B". I can attest to the first holster I linked to being very concealable, and comfortable to wear. Only reason I got rid of it was I'm not a leather fan.

    "A" looks like the holster is worn above the hip. "B" looks like a belly carry.

    When done right, there is no difference in concealability between the two. There is, however, a difference in comfort.

    I have an HF-1. They're excellent holsters. Not necessarily the absolute best for permitee carry (there are flatter options) but just plain awesome holsters, and worth every penny.

    How about a professional style holster?

    -Open top and bottom design
    -metal reinforcement piece for easy re-holstering
    -not a pancake style
    - no sweat guard on this model
