    Glock 23/27: Galco Summer Comfort

    I have been using a Galco Stow and Go but given the vertical orientation, it has not been comfortable in the appendix or 330 position. It works well for the snubby 357s given the much shorter barrel. I have been experimenting wearing my Blackhawk Serpa, adjusting the canting angle at the 330 position with an untucked unbuttoned oxford-style shirt. However, I want the option to just wear my Polo style shirts, also, untucked.

    I saw the crossbreed supertuck but that's a lot of leather material. I tend to feel uncomfortable with a design like that. With that being said, I want a smaller footprint that allows for something to be snug against me ITWB, has retention that won't lead to my gun falling out from activity, and feels comfortable. I was looking at the Galco Summer Comfort which appears to offer that.

    I know the CrossBreed looks bulky and it's not the prettiest holster but it is comfortable! Don't let looks deceive you. It conceals well and you will forget you have it on. I got one for my Glock 19 and I love it. I went ahead and ordered one for my Sig P228 as well.

    i carry a 27 in a summer comfort. the only downside i notice is that the belt loops accommodate 1.75 inch belts, mine is 1.5 inch. this allows a some holster shift but overall i am very happy with mine.

    I'm a little chunky, but I like to carry my 23/27 in a High Noon down under at about 830 or 9 (left handed), I just cant the holster more on the belt than the already 15 degrees the holster gives me.

    I got a DeSantis Intruder IWB holster for my 26 from Midway

    It is a hybrid style kydex- leather IWB tuckable holster similar to a Crossbreed fits Glocks, the cant is adjustable and it runs about $55.

    I bought a Crossbreed QwikClip for a Taurus 745, grew to hate the gun and sent the holster back to be re-kydexed for a G26. Neither holster will hold the gun securely; rather the set-up depends on the tension of the waistband/belt to clamp the weapon in place. I couldn't trust it in any vigorous activity and I don't find it to be any more comfortable than other IBW setups. But; it is well constructed and the CS from Crossbreed is top notch.

    I often carry my 23 in a SC. It's comfortable, and it doesn't shift much if you place it with a belt loop between the straps.

    I ordered a SuperTuck, it'll likely replace the SC once it comes in.

    I have not tried the SC with my 33, but I rarely carry it now.

    Glock 23/27: Galco Summer Comfort

    I grabbed the Summer Comfort yesterday. The Supertuck looks very comfortable but I don't want something that wide.

    Glock 23/27: Galco Summer Comfort

    I have been wearing the Galco Summer Comfort for the whole day today, and I don't notice that it is even there. It does not appear to print. The Glock is snug and secure.

    Very pleased with AKJ Concealco. Have his select grade for my G23, G27 and Kimber Pro. The way he positions the front strap makes the holster comfortable and very secure. Fit and finish is excellent especially the edge work.

    Glock 23/27: Galco Summer Comfort

    I love the Summer Carry for my Glock 27. However, I want something for my Glock 23. The extra little bit of grip is harder to keep from printing.

    I saw a Supertuck design from another Holster maker and will likely get that.

    Summer Comfort works well for my G23, I never tried with the G33.

    With it being hot here, I tend to wear loose clothing. Haven't had a problem with the grip printing.

    I carry my G23 in a Highnoon Public Secret in the 2 O'Clock posistion. The Public Secret has no cant. The Highnoon Down Under is the same holster with a forward cant. Go to their web page and take a look at their line as they show photos of all their holsters from all angles.

    Glock 23/27: Galco Summer Comfort

    I am going to try a Hybrid Holster like a CB ST. It is worth a look.

    Right now, I find my 27 to work well for me.

    If I decide to use the 23 at night, I will get night sights, also.

    Thanks, everyone!
