    Very happy with my High Noon stuff... (nice to see people actually posting about them here nowdays)...

    1. It's very difficult to really offer a suggestion, when you didn't even mention what type of holster you tried and didn't like.

    2. What type of belt are you using? If you are not using a GUN BELT (ie, not a JC Penny, Wal Mart or "thick belt I got a tractor supply"). If you don't have a quality belt, it's very possible your belt is the issue, not the holster.

    I have used several different holsters for CC over the years. Right now I am partial to my N82 Tactical holster (pro model).

    I carry a G29 using a Glocktech MIC holster. I'm a big boned guy (read: fat) and have yet to be uncomfortable carrying it IWB.

    I'm a big guy and carry my G23 in a Galco M5X http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=3225&GunID=49 Since it is a OWB paddle, if it does hit you wrong when sitting, it is easy to shift to a more comfortable spot. It conceals very well for me. Not sure if you want IWB or OWB, I may have missed that.

    Oh, and these can be bought for $20 local retail.

    Good luck!

    Here's my trusty gen 3 in a horsehide, combat-cut White Hat. It's a clone of the Supertuk, but with a shorter delivery time and a bit cheaper. No issues.

    BTW: the extra leather below the muzzle works well when I slip my G19 in it once in a while.

    Comp-Tac MTAC for me. Tommy Theis holster would be my second choice.

    Since it has not been mentioned, the Glock sport/combat works well. It's inexpensive so you can try out owb and if you like then upgrade your holster. Also a good gun belt is a requirement no matter the gear. HTH

    Glock Sport for OWB and a M-TAC for IWB at 3:30-4:00. for AIWB carry I use a High Noon Mr. Softy. these have worked great for carrying a 27 or 23. I'm 5'11'' 230.

    I use a Comp Tac MTac, for my 17, 19, and 26.
    Very comfortable, very concealable.
    Ditto on the GUN BELT it really does make that much difference.

    Thank you everyone for all your suggestions. You brought up some holsters I did not even know existed and I checked everyone of them out online. I ended up buying a high noon holster (Yaqui Slide) black, I tend to like the smaller open style holsters. I also went online and bought myself a new 5.11 tactical gun belt, I have never used an actual gun belt, I have always tried to get by with regular belts. I may also end up buying one of the Remora #6 holsters, I found those holsters very interesting and very versatile looking. Lots of good ideas from everyone...!!!!

    I really like my bare assets, also!! I wear them around 3:30 depending on my pants. I will have to say a GOOD gun belt is just as important as the holster it self.

    We can all recommend holsters to you all day long but what works for us may not work for you for many reasons.

    My best advice for you is to find a holster distributor that will allow you to bring your unloaded gun in and try various holsters on before you purchase one.

    Otherwise, you'll probably end up with alot of holsters you don't need or don't like by the time you find the one or two that actually work for you.

    As alternate advise, I'd try to find someone that carries that has the same build and body type as yourself and ask them what holster they like and use. This would probably be more helpful than asking a 135 pound female what works for her.

    Good luck!

    As far as I'm concerned Don Hume makes the best fair priced leather holsters in existence. The quality is top notch without the top notch price and the designs are well thought out. I only wish they made holsters for more models of guns than they currently do.

    Don Hume=Good stuff! :cool:

    Another MTAC user here with a G27. I am also a bigger guy 6'5" 230 lbs. I went through a handful of holsters before I fell in love with my MTAC. I like a holster to ride very low and the MTAC was one of the few that would adjust down to where I like it. It is also very comfortable and makes the g27 disappear not only visually but I can barely feel that it is there.

    Holsters are tricky. You can get all of the advice you want but until you try them on and break them in you will not know what works best for you since we all have different body types.
