    I'm rocking a G23. I have a kingtuk that I wear when its warm out but now that its getting cold, I'm wanting something owb.

    Here's what I'd like:
    Small enough that its concealable
    Easily comes on and off belt without worrying about it falling off
    Dependable
    Not over $100

    Any tips?

    I would recommend the Don Hume 721 OT or the Glock Combat sport holster.

    No reason not to start with the Sport Combat and go from there, which you probably won't need to.

    By "easy on and off" do you mean like a paddle or strap-on? FWIW, I've used a Hume JIT slide for years and love it. Simple, rides high & tight, VERY comfortable, and cheap.

    I don't really know what I mean. I can't carry inside my job and I don't like worrying about someone seeing my holster and freaking out. I invested in a good belt, so that's not a concern

    Are you going to give him a reason or just drive through with an ad for your product? How is it easy on/off?

    OP, generally holsters that are easy on/off i.e. don't require you to take your belt off, are less stable than those that do. I believe the Sideguard holster I referenced above is the exception to that but if concealment is that much of an issue for you look at a Bianchi PaddleLok. They fit almost as tight to the body as the belt holster.

    Ours is a little over your price, but very close. Easy on and off with one way locking snaps. It conceals very well.

    I don't know why, but there's just something about faux stitching on a Kydex holster that seems strange and out of place to me. I'm in the market for an OWB and mag carrier, but I just can't get over that stitching. Makes it look like a Fist or something.

    I actually thinks it looks good. It is a nice detail that tries to achieve the look of leather. :tongueout: All kidding aside, I do like the look.

    So its ok for sellers to spam here?

    I'm looking for personal reco's, not people trying to make a profit.

    Their way of "advertising" has persuaded me to never buy a single product of theirs. Good job guys!

    When I look at these holsters, the stitching makes them look more like cheap vinyl reproductions of leather holsters. I just think that leather holsters and Kydex holsters have their own separate place, unless it's a hybrid of course. It just looks so strange to me when you have a Kydex holster that's molded to look like it has leather features. It's almost like a children's toy. That's like the Fist holsters... Who the hell stitches Kydex together? It may work great, but it's just odd to me. :)

    And for the OP, I'm leaning heavily towards the swinkster setup found here: http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1313937

    It's a cheaper Raven Phantom alternative with awesome build quality and 1 week turnaround instead of months. I want to give OWB a shot with my 19 now that it's starting to cool down here in central FL.

    It's a personal suggestion, by no means trying to push a sale. Thought it might be a new alternative that a lot of folks haven't bumpped into in the kydex world that's flooded with Raven style holsters, which we also make as well. The stitching is sufface engraving, nothing like Fist. We've build many of our compact holsters per customers request without the engraving, just plain kydex. It's a personal preference just for the look. If the desing or my post has offended anybody, I'm sincerely appologize!:embarassed: Taking full responsibility here!

    I like these two:

    1. Mini Slide by DeSantis.It has an exposed muzzle, it’s tight fitting, it has an adjustable-tension device. Price: $65.00

    http://www.desantisholster.com/store/SEARCH-BY-GUN-MANUFACTURER/GLOCK/19-23-32/BELT-HOLSTERS/Mini-Slide

    2. Hume JIT slide as already pointed out by Bushflyr
    Open bottom, wrap around front, belt loop at center and a covered slot pulls the weapon close to the body. Price: $26.75

    http://www.donhume.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=53&zenid=5rt2bagbj6hhbif8f1snshprm2

    I have and use both. I’m satisfied. :thumbsup:
