    Glock 19 carry holster

    I'm googling good options. I'm 5' 7", 145. Any suggestions on what to look for or look out for? I'm probably going to add a loose open front cover shirt to my style. I'm pretty new to guns in general, I'm going to take a 2 day pistol course designed around use with a concealed weapon. I just got my first gun, the Glock 19 but I need a holster for the class, ...and to carry with also

    Holster choice tends to be fairly idiosyncratic, and many of us who carry go through multiple holsters before finding the right one . . . or right oneS as different holsters might serve us best in different situations.

    So that said, don't expect that your first holster will be your last.

    If you're going to wear an unbuttoned shirt, you can conceal way more gun and even conceal an OWB (outside-the-waistband) holster. For IWB holsters, there are so many styles - hybrids, single clips, kydex only, no clip, trigger guard only, etc.

    Outside the waistband is more comfortable than inside the waistband, open carry is more comfortable than is concealed. Different holsters for different applications, no one holster will do it all. I just made these for a Glock 19 Customer who's a lefty.

    For what it's worth, I'll tell you what I carry my G19 with.

    For IWB I use a BladeTech Nano

    NANO IWB :: Competition Series Products :: Blade-Tech Industries

    For OWB I carry mine in an X-Concealment Gen 2 "C" Series

    X-Concealment Holster; Holsters, Gun holster, pistol holsters, Mag pouch, Magazine pouch, Kydex Holster, Concealment Holster, Glock holsters, Pmag pouch, and Tactical Gear

    Personally, I like them both for their purpose, but there are tons of good choices available so a lot of it is going to come down to personal preference and trial and error. It's why most of us have a holster box or drawer

    If you are going to carry IWB (Inside waist band) check out the CBST (CrossBreed SuperTuck). 2 week try it guarantee and a lifetime warranty. Great product, even better customer service. It is tuckable, which means you can carry the pistol and tuck in a shirt over the pistol easily. I don't tuck in my shirts but the feature is there.

    My GLOCK 19 has been riding in a CBST made with horsehide (handles sweat better) with a combat cut (better grip when drawing) for 3 years.

    I would be concerned about OWB carry and an unbuttoned shirt for concealment, maybe you live in utopia but here in Kansas the wind blows and I would worry about accidental exposure when the wind blows.

    You picked a great pistol, I sincerely hope you never have to use it for it's intended purpose. Welcome to the forum.

    Carry my G19 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special (horsehide) most everyday. I've bought/tried/tossed a bunch of options before deciding on this one. It would take one darn comfortable holster to change my mind.

    Alessi lasts forever. If you want leather IWB.
    I'm a little heavier in the middle than in my 20's so now I prefer OWB. I use a Blackhawk Serpa.

    IWB: Desantis Scorpion, Comp-Tac Gurkha (no long made but their new "modular" holsters are sweeeet!)

    OWB: ... AND THE BEST 'CHEAP' HOLSTER I EVER HAD...Galco MX7 Matrix. I like it so much I modified one as a bed holster on the underside of my platform bed. Best $19 (each) on a holster I ever spent.

    Both the comp-tacs and the Galco Matrix should be available for immediate delivery.

    ...and I'm still using a very old Fobus Glock single mag carrier (paddle style). Have for years and years and years.

    Congrats on your purchase. You have chosen wiseley, grasshopper. The G19 is the best of the brand IMO and I've owned and shot nearly all of them at one time or another.

    I just got a Milt Sparks VMII horsehide. Easily the best, IMO. In fact, I need to post some pics and show it off.......

    My Brommeland Max Con V is incredible for an IWB. Quality workmanship but a bit of a wait. Turns out my wait for a High Noon Slide Guard was longer. Go figure.
