    I'm getting a Hillsman Holster "flatliner" for my G19. They'll make it to your exact specs for cant and ride height. A little spendy, but it has all the features I was looking for. Since I don't have it yet though, technically I can't say I recommend it. Nice guys too, for Texans! (ha ha, just kidding, I saw you were an Okie)

    Here's what I put my Glock-36 into...on foot, on the Harley (recently sold), in the car, or around the house.
    http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/holster/12.htm Note the holster with the Glock in it...just like mine.
    The #12 Basic holds the gun tightly against the body and still allow one-hand re-holstering.

    My usual recommendation for comfortable concealed carry is a pancake-style holster, strong-side at 3:30 to 4:00 position, with 10-15 degrees butt-forward cant. This works well for most users.

    The pancake-style typically rides high and belt tension pulls it snugly into the body. Fore-and-aft belt attachment points spread the weight over a wide area and anchor the holster in place. The smooth outer shell allows the cover garment to glide over the holstered weapon without snagging.

    The Glocks, with very thick cross-sections, benefit especially from this style of holster.

    I bought a Kydex holster similar to the Hillman noted above; didn't take to it: the Kydex was thicker than it appeared in photos and, although sized to my Milt Sparks gunbelt, it hung loosely and flopped against my hip. Just wasn't right for me. I use the following for appendix carry and it should work for what you want, plus the price is nice:

    This is much more substantial than most nylon rigs; heavier material and good stitching.

    And, one size fits all my Glocks

    I recently bought the CID Holster from Simply Rugged for my Glock 17.
    i like it to ride nice and tight agaisnt my side; I wear at 3:30 or 4:00 O'clock
    These are my requirements as well and the CID does the job. At $50.00 plus shipping it's pretty satisfactory.

    I always went with a Don Hume J.I.T. for my OWB G30 carry. Both have gone on down the road, so take it for what it's worth.

    Why did you get rid of the G-30?

    It was too muzzle heavy for me. While it fit my hand rather well, I was used to the G27 and the feel and fit. At the time, I was seriously wanting back into a full size 1911 anyway. I also had a G21 for several years. Just wasn't that concealable for me. Just like range guns vs carry guns. I don't own and range guns that aren't carry guns. My G30 got me into my SIG P220 SAO, and that's where the love lies now. One of those things that over-writes history and a brand name that I'm overly fond of. Looked outside Glock for my favorite 45ACP. It can happen. I never want to be without a 45ACP pistol, and if I didn't have one lined up, I'd never trade for anything else. Seldom carried the G30 (always an OWB deal for me). That's actually before I got into this forum, and learned what I have to this day. Still.......I have no remorse for the decisions I've made. Glock to the bone with one exception. They didn't have what I needed at the time.

    My Black Ops Pro from Pure Kustom, is the only OWB I've been able to carry comfortably at the 3 o'clock position. I used to wear at 3:30-4 position, but preferred 3. Snugs up tight & doesn't put pressure on my hip bone.

    I have a Fobus for mine. Everybody hates Fobus. I like mine as a range holster. It's just so "loose" and hangs off your hip. It's hard to conceal even under a jacket sometimes. Other than that, I love my Fobus holster.

    I just ordered Glock's "combat" holster. It's ridiculously cheap and I hear it's actually not too bad. I only held one a friend of mine has (he hates it) and it has good retention. It holds it tight to your body like a pancake holster which will be nice for CC with a jacket on. I usually carry IWB in a Blade-Tech. I figure if I end up not liking the Glock holster, it was cheap, so who cares. But if I do like it, which I expect to, then I'll be happy that I found a cheap solution.

    My G30 was my first gun and I don't think I could ever get rid of it :)

    I have owned a lot of holsters over the years; kydex and leather. This one is the finest, most secure and most concealable OWB I have. A little pricey, but worth every cent. Had mine in two weeks which was just astounding give it's craftsmanship (I'm sure his shipping times vary): http://www.taurisholsters.com/enhighride.cfm
