    OWB Kydex Holster sugestions

    Looking for a decent OWB Kydex/Polymer holster with level 2 retention system for 24/7 carry (CC and Open). Paddle or belt, better both.

    Any ideas? Personal experiences?

    Candidates are : Bladetech 5.11 , Serpa , Uncle Mikes with Internal Retention , Comp Tac (superb quality but level 1 retention only).

    Thanx,


    PS for Glock 19

    I only us Kydex for my range holster (Blade-Tech) but have tried the Serpa and think if I ever open carried, that would be a good choice for security.

    The only holster I carry out in public in, openly or concealed is my Blackhawk SERPA. It is a level II holster and is tough as steel.

    I do not know if they make one for the 24/7 but I'd check that out.

    If you re read the OP's post , he is asking about a G 19 ( I know , I misse read it the first time too)

    I like both my SERPA holsters as well.

    Ok, I am biased but...

    Galco makes a injection molded plastic belt holster. They just released an auto lock for the G19.

    I haven't used the ALS, but have used the SLS duty holster for years. Safariland makes a great product. I currently use the Serpa for action pistol games or open carry. Like it a lot too. Either one should serve you well.

    I use a blackhawk on duty, and for concealed carry I use the blackhawk as well. both have never failed and work reliably (even after rolling around in the mud, blood and grime). For a short while I tried the als system as a few of the older deputies swore by safariland, but I found that the als didn't always reliably release, and if I didn't pull perfectly up the gun bound up in the holster.

    Although as a note, the blackhawk cqc serpa concealment holsters are technically level 1 as they have an open front.

    The Safariland 6378 ALS holster is by far the fastest and safest OWB kydex holster I ever seen. The locking lever is between you and your weapon, not on the outside where a BG can get to it. The Serpa holster with it's retention button on the outside, activated by the trigger finger is a AD waiting to happen. Go to your nearest LE supply and see the Safariland 6378 for yourself.
    I believe the part# you want is 6378-283-411-K15 for RH.
