    Getting a new carry gun

    I just put a down payment on a used Gen 3 Glock G19 and will have it within a month. My question is do you guys know of any reliable starter holsters for cheap? 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.

    Don't throw away fifty now. Invest it with another $50 with Tim at TT Gunleather. It will be worth the sacrifice.

    Blade tech Nano, Blade tech Phantom, or Galco Triton... all inexpensive kydex offerings that work well. I have used them in competition and training...

    I have a Remora for IWB and it works great for my G-19.

    Yeah I'm actually thinking about a Galco King Tuck or a Crossbread Supertuck. Is the Galco Triton as comfortable as the other IWB holsters I mentioned? It doesn't look like it would be to me but I have very limited experience with IWB holsters. Any more input.

    Just stay away from the Fobus - Ive run my course with a few, and I'm done with them.

    I got a Crossbreed Supertuck for that price on their seconds site for my Glock 26. It's very comfortable, in fact, it is the only concealed holster I use.

    Do yourself a big favor, don't buy a cheapie holster to get started with. You will be unhappy very quickly and end up spending even more to get another holster to replace it. First you need to decide IWB or OWB. Then go from there. There is an endless supply of holster threads here. Do a lot of reading. Then make your best choice. I like IWB best. I use a Comptac Mtac holster for my Glocks. But most any of the hybrid type will work. I suggest you go to the crossbreedseconds.com site. You can get more bang for your buck here.

    Save up a little here and there and do it right, like I did. Bought 3rd gen GLOCK 19, some Remington Golden Sabres, and some range ammo and ordered a Crossbreed Supertuck in horsehide with the combat cut and a Crossbreed belt (a good belt is very important). I later bought a GLOCK sport holster (less than $15.00) but haven't really used it. Yup, I'm the exception to the rule. I do not have the proverbial drawer full of holsters, I bought the best on the first try.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. After a lot of research I think I'm going to go with a hybrid. Most likely the galco king tuk. Mainly because of the issue of waiting for the crossbread.

    Next Holster Guardian I have this and couldn't be more satisfied. I carry OWB, but you can switch the clips and carry IWB if you desire. Quality for a reasonable price...JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Glock 19 will be an easy gun to find a good holster for. Maybe too easy (too many options). I like Galco as starter, but Milt Sparks makes some super nice stuff too. I also like IWB as opposed to outside. I think if you go to the Galocusa website an search by gun type you'll get a good idea on what's available (I wouldn't buy it from there however...)

    I carry daily with a Galco V-Hawk (pricey but comfy) G-19 or G-26. That said I also have a box full of holster for different applications, I seem to collect them...Good luck!
