    Need a little experience help with G23 4th gen

    Hey Guys I just purchased a G23 4th gen and am looking for a good non collapsable holster (kydex most likely). Now a little background on me I have a G27 that I carry in a crossbreed supertuck which I love most everything about this holster except that I have to carry at about 4 ish or 4:30 ish which hurts my herniated disc in lower back. So I recently switched my carry to a Sig Sauer 1911 carry in a bladetech which I absolutely love cause it conceals great and its 45 and I can carry at 3 with (cant) which basically makes the grip run perfect on my love handle.

    So here is the problem I cant get over the whole Glock lover thing. Are there any suggestions from anyone who has back issues also, and carries at 3ish comfortably

    you might want to try a paddle holster, those are the only type of holsters Ive found to be comfortable to carry at 3 Oclock postion, I have a white hat holster and carry it at prob 3:30-3:45 postion and its very very comfy, if ya cant find the right holster for that Glock you can go ahead and send it my way LOL..

    Take a look at Remora. They have a reinforced top option as well as a couple of other options. It's comfortable, and you can place the weapon where ever you please, and it stays.

    I have two herniated discs (L4-L5, L5-L6), a pinched nerve in my middle back, and hip dysplasia. High school lacrosse ruined my body, but I carry my G19 without a problem. I use a Galco Summer Comfort and wear it at 5:00 ish. A better belt will make a huge difference if you carry anywhere other than right on your hip

    I tried the crossbreed belt and also a 5.11 tactical nothing seems to help

    How long ago was your injury? You will not be able to carry anything IWB if your injury is fresh. Try a shoulder rig if you've been hurt for a while and IWB just isn't going to cut it.

    Went and shot the gen 4 today and oh boy what a sweetheart The changes Glock did are amazing. I shot the gen 3 along side the gen 4 and there is a tremendous difference in felt recoil.
