    Solid choice in the G19; I'm carrying one right now and do it every day. My only piece of advice now is not to skimp on your belt; pony up the money for a good one and you won't think twice about carrying your pistol for twelve hours at a stretch. I'm not an expert on gun belts, but I got mine from forum supporter A&G Leather and it's worth every penny. You're also going to hear about the "box o' holsters" you'll wind up with, but I've used the second (and last) holster I bought for well over a year every day; it's a FIST #1A. Not saying it'd be perfect for you, but you might check 'em out. Have fun with your G19; it'll soon be the only centerfire pistol I own and I'm not one bit sad or worried by that.

    I do recomend the CBST or the kholster. I carry my G23 and 30 IWB everyday in either one, supported very well be a Wilderness instructor 5 stitch belt. this setup works very well for me.

    The belt makes a differencei n the comfort of a CCW? I didnt even give the belt a thought. I figured my old dress/casual leather belt would be fine?

    No, they make all the difference in the world. A good thick (double straps of leather) belt is what keeps the gun tight to your body, balanced and, most importantly, helps distribute the weight. I wore a regular but thick belt for a few months of concealed carry and then bought a good belt and the difference was incredible. I know it sounds like something that shouldn't make that drastic of a difference, but it definitely does. You almost have to try a good belt out to believe it.

    I agree that a good holster along with a good belt makes all the difference.

    any good sites on a quality belt? What would be the advantages/disadvantages of a synthetic tactical belt or a thick leather belt?

    Congrats on your new GLOCK 19, the first and last 9x19 pistol you'll ever need.

    Crossbreed Supertuck in horsehide with the combat cut supported by a Crossbreed belt in black. My GLOCK 19 has been comforting me in this set-up going on 2 years now. Excellent customer service and warranty on this holster. Horsehide would probably be real good for you where you are located.

    Is this holster comfortable sitting down? Driving, work, eating, etc.? Is the crossbreed belt leather?

    Yes, yes, yes (as is true with any method of waistband concealed carry you will need to modify how you pick things up off of the ground, how you reach for things, and how you hold a counter top down), yes? And yes it is leather and looks like an ordinary belt, just more of it.
