View Full Version : advice on holsters for G23

January 25, 2013, 10:07 PM
just got a G23 and looking to pick up a quick holster for now. Then in a 2-3 months (when my concealed permits hopefully arrives) going to invest in a top quality IWB holster. But for now I saw on glock.com homesite they sell their basic "sport" holster for only 14$. Thats a killer deal. or is it? is this thing a waste of money and I should spend the 15 bucks extra for a blackhawk or fobus or a like brand? Thanks for everyones help. I would also like to use this one for future OWB use on winter days or days I'm wearing larger clothing.

Check out CDNN for Israeli Retention holsters for $16.99.Bought two and so far they have been great.

I'm not too impressed by their holster, to be honest. I'm not seeing much, if any, retention to it, which you really kinda need for an OWB holster. I carry my CZ75 in a pancake holster from Barsony leather, and it's held up nicely. It keeps my gun close, and can be used for OC or CC. They generally run about $40, but worth every penny and then some.

I am strong side carry guy myself. This Kramer horse hide belt scabbard is 17 years old daily carry.

If I needed one fast like you do I would go to Galco's websight and find the holster that I wanted, then buy it from opticsplanet. You might not want to change. I use a Milt Sparks VMII, but it takes about 7 months to get one. Galco now makes a copy of that and if you order from opticsplant you should get it in a week with free shipping.

Bianchi #5. Its for a G17, but fits my 23 like a glove. I inherited mine from a cousin. I probably wouldn't have bought it on looks, but it is so comfortable i don't notice I'm wearing it.
