What OWB holster do you wear with your Glock 21?

I'm on the hunt for an OWB holster either leather or kydex or high grade plastic to fit a Glock 21.

I'd like to know what you like with your experience for concealed carry with this Glock model.

Thanks!

Lena,

Thanks for your input.

I have yet to buy the Glock 21, but thought I'd look around for a holster in the mean time.

Galco makes what look like a great, leather holster, called the Combat Master. It gets good reviews.

Though whatever I eventually get, be it leather or kydex/high grade plastic, I want to use it primarily for CC.

How much are you selling it for? Will you ship?

He doesn't have one for sale. He is looking for one and so he asking what others use.

carlson1,

Thank you.

Exactly Right!

Hhhhmmm, maybe I'm the only one to ever consider concealed carry a Glock 21 given the under-whelming response to my query?

Yes?

No?

In the past I have favored Raven Concealment or Bravo Concealment for OWB kydex. I also just ordered from http://www.kt-mech.com/index.html

I am carrying one right now, in a Galco Summer Comfort IWB. Conceals reasonably well at 3 o’clock under my suit jacket. I’ve carried it at 5 o’clock under a loose shirt.

The 21 is a bulky pistol, though, so it helps if you are not too self-conscious about printing.

BSHII,

That's for your recommendation.

I've been looking for comparison, that is, side by side photos of the G19 next to the G21.

Yes, I'm sure the G21 is bigger, but all that much...? I'm not certain...

As to fear of printing not a problem for me.

Thanks again.

P.S. Just before I started looking at other threads, I just saw you posted IWB and while that works well for some, I prefer an OWB.

I don't have a G19 to give you a comparison shot, but I can tell you the G21 is substantially bigger. It is noticeably bigger than even a G17--the size difference is more apparent when holding it or carrying it than when looking at it.

I find it considerably bulkier than a government-frame 1911, but is also considerably lighter. It weighs about as much loaded as a 1911 weighs unloaded.

I am a huge fan of the pistol overall. I've owned mine for over 15 years. I've put countless rounds through it, with not one malfunction with factory ammo and factory parts. The only malfunctions I've ever had have either been with my own crappy semi-wadcutter reloads or with an aftermarket steel guide rod I put in to deal with the squeak the factory rod makes when working the slide. It isn't pretty, but it is an easy shooter if your hands are big enough. You certainly never feel inadequately-armed with 13+1 rounds of .45.

I am looking for an OWB concealment holster for mine as well, because OWB is certainly better when you are wearing a jacket. I've heard good things about the Galco Combat Master. I just ordered what one might consider its competitor, the Bianchi No. 7 Shadow II, for my S&W model 60. The only OWB holster I currently have for the G21 is the injection-molded Blade-Tech one.

I don't own a Glock of any model. I use a Fobus OWB for my Beretta PX-4 SC.
It is a paddle holster and I like it a lot.
I am not certain if they make a belt version for this gun. I also have one of these, but I prefer the paddle.

My folks have had good results with Bravo Concealment, Raven Concealment, and Remora RFT for carrying concealed. Sorry about not replying, but I don't own a Glock and I carry my full size M&P openly in a Safariland ALS. :biggrinjester:
