    Glock MIC Holsters

    I did a few searches to see if there were any threads on this topic yet and could not find any. So, excuse me if this has already been discussed, but what is the consensus on the MIC holsters, which work on all of the Glock line of pistols? I have been looking into getting a glock 19 for IDPA, but never really considered carrying it until I saw these holsters. I am mostly interested in pocket carry which is my preferred method, but this looks like it could be very convenient and easy. Although, I am not sure how well the gun would stay in place if you were to just "Mexican carry." Not to mention that is mode of carry makes you look like a BG.

    I just found this to be interesting and will probably look into this and the Remora holster that I have been reading a lot about on here as some options for carrying once I save up enough to nab the 19.

    Here is a link to the video I found about the MIC Holster and the site where they are sold.

    Great review! I don't own a Glock, and have never carried IWB, but this would work if you wanted to do so.

    Is there enough there to qualify as a holster?

    Just seems like a way to mexican carry a bit safer. I'd still rather have an actual holster, its not for me.

    The biggest issue I saw with it is that it requires you to make a rather significant movement away from your body to remove the "holster". This is fine in the demo, but if you are fighting with someone and need to make a contact shot, you may not have the room to do this and the tactical risk of moving the gun that far toward the perp is rather high.

    I'll take a McNothankyou on this as well. A good holster not only protects the trigger, it controls the firearm. There's no way I would want to walk around with a firearm flopping around loose in my pocket or in my waist band.

    I have on eand it is great for very situational use but would not want it for EDC. Search my screen name and I posted a thread review about mine.

    ETA:

    New alternative method of carry....surprisingly comfy.

    jwhite, thanks for the link I figured this must have been brought up on here before, but I could not find anything with a search. How often do you use yours?

    I have a similar (Zac) rig from Dale Fricke that I reviewed on this site, you can probably find it with the search feature. For certain situations I'll carry my XD Service with it AIWB. It doesn't replace a standard holster, but for limited use it works as designed. Where this type of device really comes into play is when carrying in a bag, glove box, pack, bed side night stand, etc. while a round is chambered in a striker fired weapon.

    Not enough holster there to control the gun's position. None for me, thanks.

    I use it in anumber of ways...first off I am way too fat to carry it appendix. I carry at the 3:00 with it It works fine for me the onwer of the company sold mine to me at a show, he said it would work but it does for me. My wife has one also she uses it a lot for a purse holster wraps the string around the strap and makes it very easy for her to draw in a quick SD draw. I would definitely not use it everyday, YMMV. I use it to run errands etc when I dont feel like strapping on my HBE Com III or other IWB or OWB holster. Its made well and several other companies like Fricke who has it for more gun types than MIC. I like that he makes them in various thicknesses of kydex for varied retention.

    To answer your question I probably wear mine about 10% of the time. I could see how some minimalist people could do every day just not my personal preference. I work in an LE setting and am used to more substantial rigs.

    I thought I liked the idea, I tried sticking my Glock 20 in my belt as the guy was suggesting-----the glock 20 is too big for comfort carried that way.

    I have a 19 with a MIC and a Remora. I wouldn't think either of these would be that useful for competition, but they work pretty well for concealed carry. I use the MIC in my small of my back. It just works for me and is quite secure. And the Remora, well, it fits well anywhere and does not move. If you decide to try a Remora, consider the ART model. I like the extra cutout near the trigger.

    There are two other holsters using this concept: the Zack and the Vanguard. This is good to know because each is available for a somewhat different set of guns. I have one for my Kahr CW9 and another for my Springfield XD45.

    These are outstanding trigger covers. They snap on and off with a firm click, and will not be dislodged by accident.

    As holsters, once you loop the string around your belt, snap your gun into the holster, and jam it into your belt, the slack on the string is taken up and thereafter the string helps stabilize the gun and keep it from moving around or falling into your pants as with unassisted Mexican carry.

    When drawing, you do have to pull it up high to take up the slack on the string and yank on it to get the holster to snap off.

    And yes, it takes two hands to snap it back on when you want to reholster.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.
