    I have used a much mocked and very cheap Fobus belt holster for many years now. It works just fine. You have to dress like a rag bag to conceal the weapon, but it works and there isn't any real art to drawing the weapon, just grab it and go. I CC either a 23 or a 17 depending on my mood.

    I'll be wearing a FOBUS ankle holster for the winter with my G27 when it comes in. Spring and summer time I'll prolly go back to my Theis IWB holster.

    This, only Washington and two years.
    The crossbreed is outstanding and there is a two week, money back trial period.
    For owb get a Glock Sport Combat holster. It will be the best $14 you spend on gun accessories. It holds the gun high and tight to the side. Every Glock owner should have one. I don't know why they are not included in the box with every new pistol.

    +1 for the CrossBreed SuperTuck! I have several for my different pistols and have found, after spending a LOT of money on others, that they work best for me. You can't beat their comfort, either.

    Is Kydex better than leather or is it personal preference?

    and
    a left handed one I carry in the rear when I have a
    long coat on.


    Great holster, love it, no issues

    I received my IWB Basetuck from Whitehat Holsters a few weeks ago, great company to deal with. I have been carrying my G19 in it since it came. Conceals great, holds the gun tight and with the cant adjusted just right for me, allows for a good fast draw. I also have an MTAC for a PF9 that I used daily for almost 2 years and that is super comfortable too.

    That's weird OP. I have exactly the OPPOSITE phobia. I can't seem to think of my Glocks as reliable UNTIL they show wear, and trust me... that takes a LONG time! Mine have always been 100% reliable, but I love them once they show some silver and have some knocks and dings. For some reason they have "proven themselves" when they've been carried and shot that much.

    What kind of holster do you prefer? Kydex or Leather?

    It's definitely a personal preference.

    My personal preference is Kydex. The nice thing about the CrossBreed holsters is you have the advantage of Kydex on the pistol for fit and leather against your body for comfort.

    For OWB holsters, you can't beat Raven Concealment, as others have stated.

    I have tried both leather and Kydex. During the summer I sweat too much for leather and the poor Glock was actually showing signs of rust. I go Kydex year round because I can wipe dry the holster and Glock as needed. PJ Holster from this site is good and I currently use an X-Concealment IWB. And yes the G21 is showing signs of carry/wear but that is exactly why I chose it.
    Good luck and stay safe,
    Mike

    I have a bunch of holsters for my Glocks (sparks VM2, M-Tac, C-Tac, Raven, Alesi CQC-S, Galco concealable, Galco SOB, Galco Miami Classic, etc..). I like the C-Tac and VM2 for IWB carry. But honestly, when I carry OWB, I use the Glock concealment holster. With a riggers belt, it holds the weapon close and tight. Its easy to reholster, good for left or right side carry and only cost $15. I've had mine for years and its still going strong. It works for me for OWB. Every now and then I buy something expensive to replace it and I end up right back to it.

    Try it, you might like it for OWB carry.

    Yeah, that ^^. It's a GLOCK, a tool, a weapon, and nothing more. Sweat on it, beat it, pound it, shoot the hell out of it and get GOOD with it because your life depends on it as well as everyone near you should you have to use it.

    I carry a G19 or G36 in a Galco tac slide OWB. Can't stand IWB carry. The holster fits BOTH pistols too.

    I carry my G19 all days on Old Faithful Holster, very comfortable, sometimes I forgot that I'm carrying a gun.

    Ok. I've seen a lot of great suggestions. I have been looking at all of them. My next question is this after reading several IWB or OWB comments. Is it easy to conceal a G19 on an OWB rig? I personally having never carried think that I would be more comfortable carrying OWB. I just don't want to be that guy that just screams hey look at me I have a gun. I'm 6'2" 205lbs. I'm not obese but obviously not completely slim either.

    That is really going to depend on what you wear. Some people can conceal full size guns with ease, while for others it might be impossible.

    I carry a G27 in a SHTF Gear hybrid holster. I have yet to find a holster better than this one. Carrying IWB will take sometime to get used to, so don't give up on it right away.

    Depends on your attire. In addition to all the other considerations you have when you decide to carry a gun, you have to think about what you wear. With an IWB holster, barrel/slide length isn't an issue. With IWB and OWB, the grip length can be a problem for some folks. Also, some states CCW laws wont even alow "printing" of a firearm. VA is not that stringent. Know the laws and try some different holster/clothing combinations. You will end up trying several holsters until you find the one that works for you. The good thing is that you can post the ones that don't in the classifieds and get some money back.

    Crossbreed Supertuck with my G26, it's been the most comfortable holster I've used so far.
