Need help with holsters - Glock 27


Post by Pig Renter » Sun Sep 25, 2016 6:14 pm

My very first post on this website (and the main reason I originally signed up) was for advice on a good holster for my Ruger 380 while biking. The feedback was awesome and I used it to purchase a paddle holster that I was very pleased with and actually began using it not only for biking but almost for all other outings too. It was just much more comfortable than my glocks iwb holster.

However now I am looking for a good owb holster for my glock 27. I considered the same focus paddle holster I have for my 380 but am concerned that the hard plastic will be too bulky. Ideally I would like to carry owb with a thin undershirt and thick button up shirt both untucked to conceal it. This is how I do my 380 and I find it extremely comfortable.

I bought a "Galco Concealable" pancake holster and have used it twice so far but I'm not super pleased. I feel that the tilt on it creates an obvious bulge in my shirt. It is comfortable though and it would be great for open carry only, but I can't help but wonder if there is another holster that hugs by beltline better and is tilted for better concealment.

I know I can't be too picky with a gun that thick but I am open to good advise from experienced patriots.

I am leaning toward leather but will consider anything that is practical.

I wear 26 in ... Sw8gVX5QWZ
May be cheaper elsewhere

Lots of choices for Glock 26/27 in Bianchi holsters ... refv3=none

I wear a TALL 2XLarge or 2XLT Tee shirt untucked with a XLarge or 2XLGuyabarra shirt (Cuban/Mexican wedding shirt) on top with stuff in all 4 pockets to make bulges ... to distract from any gun bulge ... been doing that for years .

Bianchi Snaplock
I have this for my 27; also for a 1911 Officer and love them. They are getting harder to find, so for my Glock 30 bought the Bianchi Evader Bianchi Evader. Both holsters snap onto your belt, so easy on/off, and I find the retention feature very intuitive and easy to use. YMMV

All Glocks I've ever carried IWB were either in crossbreed supertuck or alien gear. Very comfortable, reasonably priced, great quality.

I use a kydex holster made here locally. Here's his Facebook page. If he doesn't have it in stock I'm sure he can make it. ... 742185386/

There's also another local guy that makes them. Although I prefer storm, these are good also. ... n-holsters

In my opinion these kydex holsters are thin enough and sturdy enough for owb carry.
