This is a discussion on Best IWB for Glock 23 within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I have been using the High Noon Public Secret for several years now for my Glock 23 and would recommended it highly. Slide guard, re-enforced ...

Thanks for all the advice guys, I took your advice whododat and picked up a Don Hume soft pocket (H715) for $20 at the gun show this weekend to see if it is my type of carry, I looked at the Remora's they had there too,, could probably use one for casual wear.
MTAC, High Noon, AKJ, Brommeland,and Dale Fricke, oh yeah, and the UBG Becker all look good, (Kydex looks thin and really stiff) and I think a cant at 4:30 will be the ticket.
As far as an outside, I was looking at the Tagua BH1-130 leather with thumbbreak, I like the forward cant and the thumbbreak acts as a slide guard. Any thoughts? (seemed like a good go between at $45 bucks, the high noon was pretty sweet, maybe it's worth it to step up and buy a better one the first time around and save the dough!)
Great community,, thanks again!
Just in case someone else sees this thread and wants more info on the Remora. My Brother-in-Law, up until 3 weeks ago used a belt held Kydex/Leather holster. Not sure of the brand. But he went and tried the Remora for his Glock 23 (size 10 ART with Tuck In option so he can wear a dress shirt tucked in and it stays put like it always does). He now swears that he will not go back, nor use anything else. He says it is comfortable, is flexible enough so it can be put at any clock position with any angle he likes.
I have one for my PF9 and will be getting one for my M&P .45.
So, anyway, if you want a good IWB holster that is very flexible in how you can wear it and it is $29.95 (+ $12.50 if you want the tuck in option), Remora is a way to go.

If you like Iwb. It's worth it to step up and buy a better holster.= You will save $$. I like the ones that re holster. But not really needed. When you carry your not going to pull it out and put it back much. I like them for the range ect.. IMO you will always want if you don't. Becker works good with my G27. Simple ~8:oclock. Can tuck in shirt if I want. Good retention. Under $90 with FB discount. 4 weeks to get it.
I use a Galco King Tuk for my G23. I love it.
I carry my Glock 19 (same size as the 23) in a Comptac CTAC with C clips. I forget I'm wearing it and it conceals great under a t-shirt.

I am wearing it right now with my Glock 19.
Fear the man with one gun. Especially if that gun is a Glock 19.

Comp-Tac MTAC.... Been using it almost every day for about 2 years... Haven't found anything better yet... YMMV..
Crossbreed Holsters > Home I own five of the Super Tuck Deluxe including one that makes my Glock 30 disappear even under a t-shirt and so comfortable I've fallen asleep in my "DAD'S EASY CHAIR" while wearing it! Super fast draw and comfy and so concealable, I've been armed in the presence of the Secret Service and it's not been detected.
