Default glock concealed carry holster suggestions

I recently purchased a Glock 19 rtf and a galco concealed carry holster. The holster is nice and it is comfortable and secures the trigger well. The problem is, when I try to pull it out of the holster it doesn't come as easily as I'd like it to and makes for a dangerous self defense situation should one arise. Any suggestions on a better holster for my glock?

I have became a big fan of the cross breed Holsters. It fits very well and has good retention but not too much. I can't remember the site so just google it.

The holster prob needs to be broken in is all, and you need to practice drawing your weapon over and over (unloaded) and that will help it....

I have been trying to get use to it for the past few weeks, practice every other night on avg and it doesn't seem to be loosening up. Its a hard plastic holster so im not sure if it has all that much give to it

I use a crossbreed for my g17, most comfortable holster I own. I would try one out. Or you can give Tommy theis holsters a try. Heard nothing but excellent things about the theis holsters. Either one would be a wise choice, they're two of the best out there.

I have a Crossbreed Super Tuck. Very comfortable holster. When I don't need deep concealment, I use a Fobus paddle holster. Super comfortable and easy on/off.

Take a look at a Blackhawk SERPA. Great retention that you soon forget is even there when you draw. Maybe I was lucky, but the retention release was exactly where my index finger naturally went on the draw.

I also have a G19 rtf and I carry concealed every day. I would suggest the Minotaur holster from comp-tac. They are very similar to the cross-breed holsters, but I've seen reviews that give the Minotaur the slight edge. I've been wearing mine for almost 2 years now and I absolutely love it for IWB!
