    Question IWB for a G22RTF

    Hey folks,

    I've got a Glock 22 with the rough texture finish, which I love. The only issue I've got is that, unless I wear an undershirt, the rough texture acts like sand paper on my skin.

    I'm looking for an IWB holster which has material in the grip area; any recommendations? There's a guy here in Minnesota who makes holsters who I'll contact to see what he can do (MNBurl on this board, with Side Guard Holsters).

    Thanks.

    Material in the 'grip area'? The grip on sidearms is usually exposed when a holster.

    Do you mean having a holster with a body protector? If so, this still will not keep the grip away from your skin.
    I can't imagine a holster that would be preventing skin contact for the pistol grip.

    One simple solution would be to wear a 'wifebeater' under your T-shirt, that's what I do, this will keep the grip from touching your skin.

    Try an undershirt..."wifebeater" as they are called or a regular white t-shirt. They actually help wick away sweat and can be cooler in the summer.

    Yeah, you definitely don't want any leather between your body and the grip of the pistol... All of my holsters have "slide guard" leather on them (to keep safeties and sights off my body), but that doesn't impact acquisition of a proper firing grip on the draw - Leather between the grip and your body could potentially impact your ability to draw quickly, efficiently, and consistently.

    As others have said - A wife-beater is the better (and cheaper) way to go here... Even with the "slide-guard" leather on all my holsters, I still wear a wife-beater 100% of the time I'm carrying (if nothing else, it keeps my sweat off the grip of my pistol)

    Regards,
