    Anything from Comp Tac will serve you well.

    Learn to make them yourself?

    Im always a fan of the DIY option. That is what I started doing about 3 years ago. Now I get to make bad *** holsters at my leisure to whatever spec I want. Plus its WAY cheaper than the "top" name brands.

    All this crap about "copied by many, equaled by none" nonsense is hog wash. There are only so many silhouettes to use and its all the same thing. Mold your stuff, Cut it out to the spec you want and put it together.

    Just get one of the Raven Concealment 'quick order' holsters...they keep the basic Glock models available on quick-order....every other model is a 5-6 month wait. hth

    I have the shorter one. I haven't tried one with the full, since I was worried it would dig into my hip (My holster rides at 3 oclock)

    I bought one of these to CCW my G26 OWB and it is a great holster.

    I have probably five different Comp-Tacs and they are fine holsters but I like the X holster for range/CCW use.

    If it's a range holster / competition holster take a look at what shooters who went to the IDPA Nationals used this past year. These are the results from 2011: http://www.idpa.com/tj.asp?ID=331

    Notice that Blade Tech had 118 holsters and that Comp-Tac had 113 holsters used at the event. The next closest competitor was Safariland with 23. If I didn't know what I wanted I would be looking hard at Comp-Tac or Blade Tech OWB belt holsters and be perfectly happy. :cool:

    Are you looking for something strictly for use as a range holster? If so, no need to spend large sums of money on "fancy" super hooty holsters. Buy a Fobus, Uncle Mikes (both can be had with either belt or paddle attachments), or as suggested above, a Glock sport holster. With any of these, you're in under $25 and they work just fine.

    I have over a half dozen kydex holsters from EDCHolsters, a member here on GT. His gear is top notch. Send him a PM. His ad is in the classifieds. Good luck.
