I just purchased a Glock 19 for CC. (my 1st Glock, I wasn't really fond of them before) I got a Don Hume J168046R IWB RH snap on leather holster. It really imprints bad IMHO. My question is what would be a good holster to IWB carry the Glock 19?

Thanks, Hellbent

An IWB holster such as made by Milt Sparks. I have an ISP (IWB) from Del Fatti, that makes my G19 disappear quite nice like-- just behind the hip.

Lots of nice holsters out there. It's a matter of style. I like the IWB, though I use an FBI on occasion or even an Avenger style like the Milt Sparks 55BN.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I need it at a reasonable price, around $50ish. The other thing is I think the Don Hume holds the weapon too high past the waistband. I need something that carries it lower. My normal clothes are jeans and a t-shirt so it has to hide in that.

Thanks, Hellbent

When I Googled "Don Hume J168046R" only one hit came up; this thread. I don't think I've ever had that happen before. What's the "generic" name of the Don Hume holster that you're having difficulty with?

I don't really know the generic name...Sorry it's just what I bought off the shelf... Try # 36-4 RH or H715-m snap on open top

It is a right hand open top, snap on holster that claims "will fit: Glock 19, 23, 32, 36"

Looked on Don Hume and found nothing under the search function for "Glock 19"

I'm really discouraged as I've never owned a glock and bought this gun to replace a Kel-tec PF9 that was stolen and I'm considering selling it and going back to the kel tec! I was under the impression that "this is the most popular concealed gun in the area" and "everyone" conceals it "well."

I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, let me look... Hellbent

If you're on a tight budget, I recommend this guy:

http://rogholsters.com/index.html

He makes a Summer Special type IWB that's really good quality for the money, $40. I bought one from him a couple of years ago when I was hurting for cash and I was really impressed with the holster. And he delivers quick too.

Nowadays, I prefer an IWB holster with offset loops and I like the Canute from UBG.

I've got a couple of those and they're great but he gets $70 for them. If you have the extra money I highly recommend the UBG, but the ROG is a good value.

I have a K&D for my G23 it's a great holster, but you will have to wait about 4 months and it is around $65.00. Kevin is good to deal with, he will get back with you.

I've have a c-tac from Comp-Tac. The price is right and it's very comfy.

Check out their IWB holsters by Don Hume. Inexpensive but work nicely.

Which specific holster do you suggest for best concealment made by Don Hume?

IWB doesn't work very well for me, even though I think it conceals better. I've finally given up and started using a Bianchi black widow. Combined with a slightly oversize shirt, it conceals as well as I could hope for. FWIW, shirts with some sort of print or pattern really help with concealment.

The Milt Sparks IWB is the finest CCW concealment holster on the market in my opinion.
Long wait from Milt Sparks BUT www.brownells.com usually has them in stock !

Yep, that's the route I recommend as well. Its an industry benchmark, and for good reason.

I've been carrying my G19 in a Comp-Tac C.T.A.C. for about six months. It hides under a T-shirt no problem.

I'm 6' 1" 210 lbs.

I carry it at just early of 3 O'Clock.

THANKS for the link, this stuff looks great for the money. I was looking for something for my XD Compact.

I carry mine in a FIST. Right around your price range, great quality and nice people to deal with. I put a lot of miles on my G19 holster with zero complaints.
