Default Need a recomendation for holsters

Hello,

I am currently searching for concealed carry holsters. The holster will be used with a Glock 23. What brands are good? What do you use? Any advice is appreciated.

Thank You,
Doug

I carry a Glock G19 in a paddle holster I cant remember the brand name now because its been a few years. I have been looking at Black Hawk tactical holsters as they seem to fit closer to the body. My holster sticks out a little and after looking at how close the black hawk holsters fit to the body Im going to be getting one. I also like the security feature in that when you grab it you push a small button and it releases. Keep us posted.

Thanks for the responses. There is soo many choices I want to be sure I am well informed before making a purchase.

I like the "inside the waistband" style. Do I need bigger pants for it to fit? I buy my pants a little big but only by an inch.

No, an extra inch should do; and, you won't get better concealment.

You can get much better comfort though. Let face it, if a rig is uncomfortable, you'll be less likely to wear it. If not worn, a holster is useless.

OK, but, 'Why' would it be uncomfortable? I recommended one of the most popular undercover law enforcement holsters on the market - The Kramer IWB #3! I've never heard of this holster bothering anyone. Just the opposite, actually. Greg Kramer can't built them fast enough!

i use a Galco Summer Comfort for my sig p239. i also wear a belt made my desantis or boston leather. all my pants are one size larger. i'm really not bothered by wearing an IWB. i guess i just got used to it. this rig seems to work for me. my only suggestion is that you don't go cheap. spend a little extra money on a quality holster and you won't regret it.

What do you recommend for comfort?
