    Glock19 appendix carry options

    Good morning. For those that have IWB appendix carried a G19, what holster do you prefer? I like the looks of the Mtac neutral holster but haven't tried one. I'm trying to avoid buying a bunch of holsters (yeah, good luck with that huh). Printing isn't an issue for me but comfort is.

    I understand that nothing is 100% when you strap an extra 2+ pounds to your waste but, in your experience, is there one IWB holster that does multiple carry positions (2 Oclock to 4 Oclock) well?

    Appendix carry

    Although it's not truly "Appendix carry", I carry a G19 with a spare G17 mag, 5 days a week in a SmartCarry holster. It is, by far, the most comfortable carry setup I have and could not recommend it highly enough!

    I wear this with dress slacks, button down shirt, and a tie! It only gets easier when I have worn it with jeans though.

    MTAC

    I currently carry my G19 in a MTAC neutral cant holster. It allows adjustments in terms of depth (how low it rides in your pants) and cant that adds to the concealment. I've also used the MTAC non-neutral cant holster for appendix and 3'oclock, 4:30 positions. The canted draw at the appendix position is not too bad for me, but some folks prefers the neutral cant.

    Both holsters are very comfortable and secure (I have the standard belt clips), and conceals well for me. For reference, I am 5'10", around 140 lbs with slight belly bulge developing. :)

    I have tried a few holsters for appendix carry and settled on the CompTac MTAC. It allows enough of a cant adjustment for me and is very comfortable. I have since purchased the Neutral Cant version but haven't felt the need to use it over the standard MTAC. I have been tempted to try the CompTac 2 O'clock just because I haven't tried it yet. I have yet to find the ultimate OWB for appendix carry in the winter but have settled on the Mitch Rosen Upper Limit which is not bad.

    For me the Comp-Tac 2 o-clock sits too low and it is difficult to grasp the grip aggressively. Glock 19.

    I use a galco summer comfort/royal guard model iwb for my glcok 19. It has two snaps so it is easy on and off and can be snapped on at any position you need. Very strong durable and well built holster

    G26 in a High Noon Hidden Ally (tuckable version of Mr Softy) was my first carry setup, and I was very pleased with it, but I picked up some belly since then.

    UBG Holsters' "Nassar" model was designed for appendix IWB. I have one for my Glock 19. It's very comfortable & works.

    I've used kydex for that, too (Blade-Tech & FIST), but they're just not as comfortable as leather.

    One thing I noticed about appendix carry, for me, is that duel clip holsters are just too wide & bulky, making it harder to get it in a comfortable position.

    And when you sit down the barrel goes were?? Even with my UC9 anything not inline with my leg either stabs in my leg or "other" and in the back it hangs out like a tree branch when bending or sitting. Maybe if I were my pants like Erkel it will be all good.
