    Indeed, get a good holster for your G19. The rig you have been using with your first pistol is your starter holster; no need to repeat that pattern with your Glock. A comparable pistol I have carried is a slightly thicker G29, and I used a Galco Concealable to carry it. That is a really good rig. I used a Blade-tech vertical-draw kydex holster to carry a G22, but it was more of a field and range holster design, not as concealable as a true concealment rig, but quite usable with some full-cut cover garments. Blade-tech now makes some more concealment-oriented products, than was available back when I bought my rigs.

    I just acquired a G17, my first Glock I have owned since 2005. While this Glock was on layaway, I bought a pre-owned but pristine Raven Concealment Phantom, which seems to be a very good kydex OWB rig, which can be used IWB with the appropriate hardware.

By cheap i mean the $50 and less range. IWB or OWB doesnt matter much to me. I carry concealed most of the time so something that is concealable is best. I currently use a Fobus paddle holster for my Taurus pt111 mil pro and conceal that easily enough. I'm six feet tall and 220 lbs if that matters at all. Just looking for a hold me over till I can get a real good one as i see they get expensive.
    For that price range, you might want to check out the "BaseMax" from White Hat Holsters $39.50 BaseMax IWB Holster - Cowhide or Horsehide leather backings or you could go $9.95 over your budget and get the "MaxTuck" MaxTuck IWB Holster - Cowhide or Horsehide leather backings

    I got the MaxTuck Horsehide and love it.

    In case you are wondering...No, I do not work for the company...I'm just a satisfied customer.

    I'm not comfortable recommending "cheap" holsters for a $500+ weapon. It's unsafe for you and those around you. The POS one-size-fits-some nylon holsters are the worst and are never a good option for civilian CC, IMO.

    The DeSantis Speed Scabbard is a decent choice and can be had for less than $45 at Cheaper Than Dirt. I'm using one to carry my CZ75 Compact until I can acquire an RGrizzle or UBG.

    Looper makes a nice 2-slot leather OWB that retails for $60. I used one when I carried a CW45. Good leather and retention for the price.

    Sorry for not getting back on sooner. I got my Glock and a Galco King Tuk and love it. I love the hybrid compared to other holsters I have tried. I'm thinking of getting a white hat or crossbread for my 1911.

    A good option for IWB are the N82 holsters. I have the original and it was around $40. Very comfortable.

    What's a "starter holster"?

    Re: Getting a new carry gun

    I carry my Glock 17 owb in a Fobus paddle & iwb with a DeSantis Tuck This. My belt (cabella's double duty) makes pretty much anything work. So you may want to invest there first.
