    I am 6'2".... 200lbs and I am currently carrying a G20 in the glock combat holster. My question is there anything better for OWB, and what feels best for IWB, with this weapon

    I'm a big fan of the Safariland ALS holster for my G19. I've been wearing it as a paddle for several years, and recently swapped the paddle out for the belt slide attachment, and I like it a lot better. It was very good with the paddle, and it's great with the belt slide. I don't IWB anything but my LCP, so I can't offer any advice on that. I'm 6'3/260 BTW.

    check in the classifieds for Casino Customs holsters. he makes custom kydex holster that can be worn IWB and OWB. Ive only used it for OWB so far but it is very tight to the body, comfortable, and has good retention. i had been using the Glock holster for OWB until i got one of these. it is heads and shoulders above the glock holster. also, this holster is much more sturdy and high quality than the glock holster. i also had it "slide cut" to fit my 23 and 27. *edit- and im 6'2" 265 and it works great for me.

    i also had him add a little more forward cant than he usually does because i prefer it that way. he fulfilled my request with no questions asked....and it only took 6 days to get to my door from the day i ordered and that was with the 1 day delay for Presidents Day. Casino Customs is top notch.

    Weather here is normally on the cool side, so I normally wear a very lightweight shoftshell jacket or loose sweatshirt. If it's warm enough for t-shirt only, I often wear my LCP in a Galco USA IWB holster

    I'm 5'9" @200lbs and use a Crossbreed everyday. I hardly notice it. For an OWB I've been considering something from Seth's Gunleather.

    I carry a G21 IWB with a Comptac Infidel, everyday. I've had an Infidel for my G30, when I carried it. One for a G17, and one for a G19. All I can say, is whatever weapon, I decide on carrying, it will be carried in an Infidel!!!!!!!! It's secure, comfortable, and most of all, with the belt clip, easy on and off. Hope this helps.
