    G19 Holsters

    I've recently decided to commit myself to daily carry (new gun helped out this decision) and have been doing some research into IWB holsters. I think the reason that I've never carried beyond leaving the gun in the car very much is that my only holster is a less than comfortable Uncle Mikes IWB. Anyone have any major cons of any of these? From what I gather they all should work pretty well. Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Seems like people like these.

    Comp-Tac C-Tac - Comp-Tac : Top-Quality Firearm Accessories
    Equally impressive reviews. Expensive though.

    Kholster - Kholster
    Similar to CrossBreed in many ways except for price. I like what I've read so far.

    Applegate Holster Works - Applegate Holster Works
    Found them on Ebay and like what I've read as well. Can't find any reviews online. Anyone have any?

  3. GFGrant I would like to know the answer to this as well. I just bought a Glock 19 and am currently looking for a holster. I'll let you know if I find something as well.

    I've had the Supertuck for about three weeks carrying G19 at 3-4 o'clock. I tuck my shirt, blouse it a little and cinch the belt.

    I also use on occasion the SmartCarry. But I like the Supertuck better; more comfortable and gun is way more accessible.

    Comparing to the pictures of the Kholster and Applegate, it seems like Supertuck puts a lot more time in finishing the holster edges, cut and design. Looks like that is where the price difference is. The designs are comparable, though.

    The C-Tac is really nice looking there. But the idea behind the other designs is the leather between the grip/rear sight and your body. For a C-Tac style holster, I would get a SkyOps from Galco. But really don't need one.

    Supertuck gets my vote. Hope that helps.

    The Milt Sparks Summer Special II is one of the most popular IWB but: is not tuckable, has about a 6 month wait, and is about $170 ($120 on ebay).

    I narrowed down my search between the Supertuck and the Mtac by Comp-Tac. I went with the Mtac because I believe it is better built and the holster body is replaceable, and like the adjustable cant. Received my order in less than a week. It is more comfortable than I anticipated. Highly recommend it.

    A bit pricey, but this will be my next IWB holster;

    "Ultra Cover" Holster

    I like the feature that allows the shirt to fall between the belt and holster. I like to wear my shirts tucked in.

  7. Kramer IWB #3 is a fine rig for the G19.

    After some amount of internal debate I've decided to go with the "Slim" model by Applegate Holster Works. I really like what I see and am really excited. They carry a return policy so if I don't like it I'll return it (hopefully that won't happen). They're similar to the others and not quite as expensive. Sadly not everyone is rich. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Holster is located here fyi: Applegate Holster Works

    Has anyone done business with them? I can't find anything online and am a little wary but am going to try it anyways. Now all I have to do is wait on it to come in (which I hate doing). Thanks for the advice everyone!

    Just carried the Comp-tac Minataur IWB for my G19 for an Advanced Combat Pistol class. More than 18 hours, hundreds of draws and reholsters. Love it. Very comfortable and never a hiccup. Every reholster was effortless and as easy as an OWB holster.

    Highly recommend the class as well: The Defensive Shooting Academy of Tulsa Homepage

    CrossBreed has been a long time supporter of our sites, so I may be a bit biased..... but, that being said, we did a review of their Super Tuck and really liked it. In fact, we STILL like it. In our review we used a G23.

    You can find the review at: IWB Holsters, Kydex Holsters, IWB Holster Review - Holster Vault

    I posted this on GlockTalk but figured I'd share it on here for those that are interested in what I ended up with. As stated earlier I ended up purchasing the "Slim" model by Applegate Holster Works. It came in a little while ago so I figured I should let everyone know what I think.

    First thought: It's pretty darn ugly, and is definitely not fancy. Not a surprise though if you read through their website. Second thought: I've just learned ugly isn't always a bad thing. I actually like the holster. It took a little bit of time but now it holds the form of my body after I take it out (instructions that came with it likened it to breaking in a baseball glove). I've found I like the thickness of the holster. Can't say I absolutely can't feel it but I do forget that I have it on. I don't really sweat all that much with it either.

    Gun retention is good as well. The gun snaps in and stays put while I carry it. No visible printing either. I can't say I have any similar holsters to compare it to but this one will work for me for now. All in all not a bad purchase I figure. I'll be sure to post a comparative review if I get anything else anytime soon.

    Best of all.....I got $5 returned via PayPal today for asking if anyone knew about the holster online(many thanks to psychman of GlockTalk for reminding me).
