Wow! In my Fobus, the GLOCK 22 actually conceals!
I was skeptical when I got my GLOCK 22 a few weeks ago. I didn't think that, even in a Fobus paddle holster, it would feel comfortable, and not be noticeable, concealed on my frame.
I'm not small but not huge: 5'11", 172 lb. Except for a small layer of blubber that didn't use to be around my middle (which I have sworn to eventually combat), I could even be called sort of slender.
Tonight, I was headed out to . . . <drumroll> Walmart (by way of Denny's for a late dinner) to do some shopping.
I decided to try to carry the G22 for the first time ever. (I have taken it to the range to test it out, but never CCW'd it.) I put the holster on, put a "Punisher" black t-shirt w/ skull logo on, and an unbuttoned collared shirt over that. This is what I usually do when concealing the GLOCK 27 I've had for years.
Well, this Fobus holds the G22 at a more pronounced forward angle than the Fobus for my G27 does -- presumably to draw the butt of the grip forward so it doesn't stick out behind you. The end result was that I felt confident, looking in the mirror, that the gun could not be easily detected on my person under the shirt. I even squatted down and the gun did not protrude out the hem of the shirts.
I went out, spent an hour or so at Denny's and another hour and a half or so at Walmart. Felt very confident in my choice of sidearm, by the way. I had never realized that any gun could feel better to have on than the G27. Nothing wrong with the 27, but the 22 is just that much more gun.
What a great discovery! I'll probably carry the G22 a lot more now; it's competition for the 27! :hand10:
