    I also have a Glock 27 and I would not buy a holster with a retention strap since the flap could get caught inside the trigger guard while holstering and cause the gun to accidentally discharge if the safe action trigger is actuated. I would rather recommend a holster with a retention screw and the tension can be adjusted. I bought a IWB cantable and tuckable Kydex holster from FIST. Just my .02 cents!

    In my opinion, you're barking up the wrong tree. I do however wish you luck in your quest.

    My department requires off duty weapon holsters to have some form of retention. I was interested in a iwb holster if I could find one with it.

    K&D Holsters. Their Dakota Defender is an incredibly comfortable, well made, durable and stable rig which can be provided with a thumb break retention strap.

    It is also tuckable should you wish to do so.

    I would go with the K&D like Musketeer said. I personally have a Minataur from CompTac which is very similar, but is not provided with retention straps.
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

    If it was a tuckable, wouldn't that essentially count as a form of retention? Maybe I'm just splitting hairs. Requiring retention on the holster but how do you force someone to use it; if it were a retention strap, isn't useful if a person didn't engage it. Straps or snaps would be dangerous in the case of a Glock. The model with the adjustable tension screw sounds like the best way to go. I've seen those things adjusted where you almost need two hands to get it out of the holster.

    I have a retention strap on my minimalist OWB. When I'm wearing it, the strap is folded back and trapped between my belt and the holster. If I have to remove the rig, I use the strap to keep the gun from coming out of the holster and ensure trigger protection.

    If that only means a thumb break then that's a ridiculous policy. All duty and off duty holsters in my department are approved by me (Supervising Firearms Instructor) who has knowledge of what a decent holster is; not my administration, who is clueless. All on duty holsters must have a retention level.

    Without even going into the fact that a concealed holster is the best security level, a quality IWB does not require a thumb break since it's held in place by your belt and form fitting molding (leather or kydex).

    Be the change that you want to see in your department and submit for a change of policy along with a good example of an IWB as show and tell. I bet Comp_tac would send you a T&E MTAC. If your Firearms Instructors aren't on board with that then they're behind the times.

    A quality holster with thumb break will have a thumb break large enough to not fit inside the trigger guard.

    On another note, could you carry without a thumb break as a "citizen" not an off duty LEO??
