Holster for Glock17

To be carried with on in the chamber. I know not the safest but looking for a holster that would give me that option if the need arose.

Thanks in advance.

any holster that covers the triggergaurd.

I know thats not a very good answer but its not a very specific question.

Google "glock holsters" and look around. until you have more specific requirements any holster will fit your bill.

I hope this doesnt come off as sarcastic in text. i dont mean it that way at all.

Try This: heres the sarcastic part.

Good answer, I am ignorant of this because I never really thought I would want to carry one in the chamber.
Just didn't know if there was anyone out there that does carry like this and has a holster preference.

I have both Blade Tech kydex and Millt Sparks leather holsters for mine, and both work well.

I also have a couple of the the trigger guard type like the one in the link (no that specific model though), they work, but I find them to be a distraction in the draw.

Dont get to nervous about carrying a Glock loaded. People do it all the time, even without a holster. As long as youre reasonably safe with your gun handling, its really not an issue.

Is this your first carry holster?

Do you want to carry inside waist, outside, paddle holster? There are a great many holsters for the block family, if you can give any insight as to how you think you want to carry that will help narrow the field.

And no I don't work for them, just like the company.

You might take a look at Fist holsters. I've always found them to be very high quality and not overly expensive. Try www.fist-inc.com.

One other thing: Based on my personal experience, good, quality leather holsters are preferable to cheesy nylon holsters. If you carry every day [as you should], the el cheapo nylon rig that was so affordable won't last long. By contrast, a leather holster from a reputable manufacturer will last many years. I can't speak about Kydex holsters, no experience with those; but from the outside looking in, a lot of folks sure seem satisfied with them.

Striker fired pistol without ambi or manual safety levers...

For some striker fired pistols like the Glock, XD, Walther P99, SD9, etc, I suggest a well made holster that fully covers the trigger guard but does not touch or block the pistol's trigger.
The SFS holster could work but the Blackhawk SERPA or ALS designs seem to be less than ideal.
Traditional thumb break styles can do okay but the polymer/kydex offer a lot.
You must consider issues like speed, draws & security/retention.
