    Yup. Not cool, not flashy, not high speed / low drag, just a single piece of molded plastic with no character at all, but it's ridiculously cheap, it's durable as all heck, and it simply WORKS.

    Hard to been the Glock Sport/Combat "belt slide" holster. Unless, of course, you wear belts that aren't paper-thin. In which case holsters like the Blade-Tech Total Eclipse, and JM Custom Kydex OWB 1 or OWB 2 really start to become a much better option.

    acroreef You will probably find a paddle rig fits tightest to your body but there are a number of models pick from still .

    I had a low cost safariland 568 for some years I use with a 4" DW 357mag revolver . Its work far better than some far costlier highly rated pancake holsters I tried for a far lighter lw commander . This holsters a laminate and lined but held up well and has tension adjustment alone with mounting options

    Galco has leather body model along with 1791 holsters , and many others really .

    The $16 Glock Sport/Combat holster fits very tight to the body and carefully using heat you can make it conform to the shape of the hip. It's a good start anyway.

    The Glock Sport is ok for what it is but I don't consider it a replacement for a proper holster.

    Kydex, pancake style will ride high & tight. Lots of good choices out. Vedder, Comptac, Bravo, etc. A good rigid belt is very important for owb.

    How is it not a "proper holster" ?

    Probably 'cause it doesn't cost 150 bucks.

    I'm kinda late to the party here, but Winthrop holsters has a really nice OWB pancake holster for more than half the price of a custom made and a good bit less than Galco, etc......give them an eyeball, you may like what you see....

    YMMV

    Seriously, I have gone through a whole lot of holsters, and the best will not be expensive or do you need to look very far. I bought one after thinking I had the holster(s) that I needed, and now this is the only holster (I bought another just in case too) I will use with my G26 or G19 And where do I(you) get these? Oh, they cost, (sitting down?), $14. Here is a link: https://store.teamglock.com/accessories/glock-sport-combat-holster.html

    These hug the G19/G26 right to your body, very closely. You may heap my praise and throw flowers in my path whenever we meet. :dancing:

    Aw [email protected], somebody beat me to it. Oh well, I have had many holsters and of course the holster snobs will look down their respective noses, but it is perfect for what you asked for.

    Sold all my expensive holsters and now only use the Sport/Combat. Do I carry much? Just everyday. For several hours.

    Try a Kramer vertical scabbard or their Speed Scabbard holster. Both holsters hold tight to the body.

    Agree with several other posters. Glock Sport/Combat holster.
    Very inexpensive, sturdy enough; and can make it even tighter to the body by lopping your belt over the outside of the holster instead of behind it.
