    Above waist band holster??

    First off my go to carry gun is a gen 4 glock 19 in a remora holster or the glock tactical holster( or whatever it's called)
    The other night I was watching a tv show "arrow". One of the characters carries a glock 17 at the 6 o'clock position. When I saw him turn around his holster looked to be an owb but it was above the waist. I've been searching for days for a pic of that scene but cannot find it. But of anyone knows what I'm talking about can you tell me what kind of holster would allow me to carry like that?
    Basically a holster that is owb and allow me to carry at the 6 o'clock position comfortably. Need to be able to sit and walk comfortably to which the remora is allowin me to do. Really just curious about that holster because I would like to try and carry that way since most of my pants are pretty fitted and iwb isn't always comfortable at the position

    Sounds like he had his 'shoulder holster' on the wrong way.

    I'm not familiar with a holster design you speak of...

    Actually I think the movie was Die Hard and it wasn't a holster, it was duct tape.

    If it can't be accomplished with duct tape then it can't be accomplished.

    I've heard bad things about carrying small of the back at 6 o'clock. It's a good way of harming your spine if you go down backwards.

    Haha maybe i was just seeing things. But it looked pretty cool when I saw it. The holster was just above his waist and had the glock upside down so that the grip was facing up. I guess I'll just stick to my current carry positions since they serve me pretty well so far

    Isn't that show a cartoon? Might be hard to peg that to a real holster!

    Belly band style holsters or SOB holsters might allow that sort of carry.

    For example ...

    I don't know everyone, but I sure don't pick a holster or carry position cause "it looked really cool". Most of us put a little more thought into it than that.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    go to pistolwear.com, they have an above waist holster that I use and it carries at the 6 o'clock position in front, I love it, very comfortable to wear and no one can tell you are carrying. my wife says she can never tell if I am armed or not.

    I would think that would be a very awkward draw.
