    I recently purchased a Glock 20, and was instantly hooked. got the 40 barrel for practice and now have a 29 on the way. It is going to be my CCW if I can locate a good holster. Keep in mind, I am slowly converting from being a 1911 guy, as I love the platform and the flat slide is hard to beat. However, I don't like the weight, and I am much better at the range with the glock. Anyway, the slide of the Glock is about 3/8 of an inch wider than the 1911. Which holsters have you guys tried for the 29, and which did you find to be best for all-round use? (I know Milt Sparks VM-II is a great holster, but it is also pretty pricey, not to mention the long wait to get one. I also like the easy draw characteristics of Kydex, although it is slightly thicker on the downside.)

    I'll be the first to recommend the C-Tac from Comp-Tac. Excellent company and a great holster for around $70.

    I carry my G30 (same as 29 but 45acp) in an Alessi Talon IWB. I tried a Kramer Horsehide IWB and it was just way too thick.
    The VMII is a great holster but you're right, it's pricey. I haven't tried any kydex IWB for the large frame Glocks but I imagine they would work pretty well since the material is so thin. Plastic holsters don't do it for me though.

    I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I have a question that I think applies... Will a Glock 29 fit a Glock 36 holster? If not, why not? Is the single-stack .45 that much different at the top of the holster? Or, are they using a different slide on the 36 than the 30/29?

    The Sparks VMII is a great hoslter. Well worth the money. If the wait is the issue, Lightning Arms can usually hook you up inside of a week.

    check out the lowrider from RM holsters. http://rmholsters.com . Kydex, molded for glock, pretty cheap about 50, can be used with a gunbelt, heavy belt or no belt. I have a milt sparks but I use my lowrider more.
