Trying to determine whats best for my Glock 23/Gen4 in terms of comfortable positions, concealment, ease of taking it off, safety and such. I normally don't wear a belt, but looks like I'll start having to do so. Also I wear all shirts outside my pants. I want to get a good one, but don't want to drop 50-100 bucks on something that I don't like and many of my friends don't carry, so I cannot "test" theirs. What works for you, what do you like/dislike about a particular holster that you have tried/used?

I prefer a wallet holster for my everyday concealed carry. Here is one that I like:

miami classic for winter and cotton leather for edc
The issue with the Galco Miami Classic Horizontal Shoulder Holster,besides the $160ish price, is that the muzzle of the Glock would be pointed at whoever is behind you. And we all know how Glocks just discharge all by themselves. When you do draw the gun, you have to be careful not to shoot yourself in the artery, or sweep innocents. I do like mine for driving in a car though.

I have homemade kydex, Tagua leather quick draw open top belt holster, . I use a Uncle Mikes IWB holster that's $15 , it's comfy, but difficult to reholster and the trigger isn't real protected in the flimsy fabric.

You'll probably wind up with a drawer full of holsters you don't use until you find a good one.

I carry a Glock 23 on duty and use a Blackhawk Serpa , also have a similar type made by Taurus that came with my 1911. It's comfortable,safe, and easy to draw from.

I carry my pistols (mostly my 92FS these days) in a variety of holsters. I prefer and find an open top 2 slot the most comfortable to wear throughout a day and fast to draw from. But even wearing the belt through the loops around the outside of the holster which pulls it in tighter it still prints on all but the loosest shirts of heavy material. So I wear IWB's most of the time and a Blackhawk black leather IWB with open top most. It pulls the pistol in tighter and sits lower so the print is much less. Not as comfortable to wear all day, but it has to be. In winter/fall when I can wear a coat no matter how light over my cover shirt, thanit's the OWB 2 slot every time. It's hard to find a good open top 2 slot for a 92FS/M9,(I'm also a lefty) but the one I got from Tagua leather is great and was a great price for top quality also.

Asking what my holster of choice is kind of like asking what kind of clothes I like best. It depends on the occasion.

I have 3 holsters I use for personal protection. First is IWB type by Cross Breed Super Tuck, second is a OWB which is a Galco Concealable Belt Holster Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters and a Galco Jackass shoulder rig Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters. Now I have these to fit 3 guns but in the case of the shoulder holster I simply change the magazine holder and holster using the same straps to use with 2 different guns. I carry the OWB, IWB and Shoulder rig with a 1911 compact, OWB with a Taurus PT111 Pro only and a PT 92 in shoulder holster only. I choose based on dress at time.

Obviously not everyday clothing. Like I said the top one was for a photo shoot, the bottom one was going to a party. Typically I am a jeans and tshirt girl.

That pretty much sums up my answer. There are different holsters I wear on a regular basis and a lot of it depends on what I am wearing clothes wise that day. When I am at work, there is my Bianchi Accumold "Wonder Woman" belt, short of the "Magic Lasso" of course,with a Accumold High Ride forward canted holster for my 1911. No concealing that baby or the fact that you are carrying! The back up to my duty rig, is a cheap nylon holster with light padding that attaches through the velcro flaps that hold my Threat Level IIIA vest closed that holds my PT-99. If I am wearing a suit I have a shoulder holster rig simular to the Galco Miami but it orients the muzzle of my 1911 down and two mags on the other side to kind of balance out the weight. Then most of the time I usually I opt for a SOB holster that does a great job of hiding my 1911. I really like this one a lot cause if I am accosted I can always have the option of reaching behind myself and producing my wallet or the business end of my 1911 without raising any alarm until its too late for the "opposition party"!

This is usually something that your just going to have to play around with until you find something thats comfortable and something that works. Thats something is probably going to cost you a little jingle too more times than not.

I know, I was just playing. Jeans and tshirts are actually part of my bugout rig. The way I see it, there's two types of needed camouflage, in the wild and in the city. A person may need both. Just depends on what happens and where they may need to blend in.
