    I fancy carrying a 34 both IWB, and OWB. Please no second hand opinions. I carry glocks, IWB only, but think an OWB open carry option for the 4th of July party might be good... I prefer wide spread loops, and can't appreciate the aesthetics of the crossbreed type holster. Single loops seem unstable...

    Please share some experiences:

    Holster maker Nick Matthews, made me a IWB that I use for both my G34, and G35. It carries and looks just like the ones I have from him for my 1911 full size. Carries the same as well.

    Rocky is a guy that, if at all possible, will make whatever you want. Give him a call and ask.

    I've been on this quest lately as well Sugarcreek but for a Glock 35 Gen4.

    So far I've tried:

    1. Galco King-Tuk (which does work fine for G34/G35)
    2. Comp-Tac Infidel

    I'm waiting for:

    1. Milt Sparks VM-2 (...will be here next Friday!)

    I'm considering:

    1. Galco "Quick Slide" holster for OWB.
    2. Kirkpatrick Leather TCC (similar to SS-2) (8 week wait)
    3. Raven Concealment Phantom (long wait)

    Notes:

    1. The King-Tuk works just fine for IWB carry although after a few carry sessions the "putting on" aspect (with those damn metal clips) is really irritating. After dealing with those clips, I'll never complain about having to put on/remove a belt loop holster again!

    2. The Comp-Tac Infidel looked like a great holster on paper (or on the web site) but it does not have the usual "kydex lock" of the trigger guard. The CT Infidel has a really odd retention. You slide the pistol in and it's sort of a mushy feeling. Really didn't like this... I prefer the typical "klock" sound of a Glock snapping into kydex.

    3. One holster I love is the Galco Triton. I called Galco's custom shop but they're pretty useless if they don't already make the model of holster you want. They won't make any custom Tritons. :crying:

    4. Having owned several VM-2 holsters for 1911's I've never actually owned one for a Glock. I got lucky and found one in the GT Classifieds... it'll be here next week.

    Conclusions:

    1. Looking forward to the VM-2. I think this will be my primary holster. The Glaco Quick Slide looks interesting for OWB carry but will go with VM-2 for now. The King-Tuk will be a backup IWB holster as I have the Galco Tritions for all of my other Glocks.

    Well, you won't be using an ankle holster with those large Glocks. :)

    MTAC for IWB whatever belt holster tickles your fancy. I use a Dale Fricke Gideon for OWB.

    As promised, here's the VM-2 I received from a GT member. It fits like a glove and is sweet! I've been carrying it all weekend. It just doesn't want to come off. :p

    I forgot how comfortable the VM-2 can be... even with this "large" pistol...
