    Dedicated OC setup

    I've been looking for a way to open carry with a jacket/coat on because living in Alaska, it is cold most of the year and CC can be a PITA sometimes. I've always wondered why LEO holsters stick out so far from their body and now I know why.

    I recently picked up a Blackhawk Serpa LE Level II duty holster for my Glock 19 and also bought an Uncle Mike's duty belt and nylon belt keepers. Some people might consider that to be too "mall ninja" ish but I don't care. It is easier to just remove the belt keepers and take the gun belt off rather than having to un-thread my usual belt to get the holster off when I get home. It will be used for winter carry mostly when I do choose to OC.

    This is by far the most comfortable way I found to open carry with a jacket, and if I want to I can go with my t-shirt untucked during the summer.

    Not a bad setup, what do you have rigged on there for your mag(s)?

    It is just barely showing on my left side, I have a DeSantis leather double mag carrier that is snapped onto the duty belt.

    nice, I will keep an eye about town for you then. ;-)

    What I like about the Safari Land style holsters is how you can tuck your shirt down around your belt - It does look a little "Mall Ninja-esque" with the shirt tucked in, but with the belt concealed under th other shirt it just looks like you are OC'ing.

    An armed society IS a polite society.

    With the shirt over the belt it looks great. :) With the belt exposed you are right about looking a little like a mall ninja, but hey you are dealing with unique circumstances in AK.

    I was thinking the same thing! Thought there might be unused Glock accessories for sale and I need a reason to go to Alaska!

    I wanted another holster for open carry so I ordered a paddle holster from Comp-tac. I havent recieved the holster yet. I wanted something I could take on and off easily.
    I didnt think I'd like a paddle holster until I tried out the holster that came with my XD. A belt holster use to come with the XD, it was pretty much worthless, but the paddle that comes with it now is amazingly comfortable. I carry a Tactical 5" , so its heavy. I've never found an OWB holster that carries the weight better than that paddle holster. I would'nt wear it out anywhere but I wear it around the house alot.
    Prepare for the worst and hope it never happens

    Like I said this setup will be mainly used for winter when I am wearing a coat or a jacket over the belt so nobody but me will know its a duty belt. I tried using my regular belt but I didn't like having to unscrew the holster every time I wanted to take it off.

    Nice rig you have there. I like it. I also carry in a SERPA, as does my wife. We both use the paddle attachment but I can really see the logic in the belt attachment in your situation.

    Well done solving your problem. I think you have an excellent solution.
