Understanding Different Types of Glock Gun Holsters

Before diving into the specifics, it's important to understand the different types of holsters available for your Glock. Each type offers unique benefits and is designed for a particular use.

The two most popular varieties are Outside the Waistband (OWB) and Inside the Waistband (IWB).

Outside the Waistband (OWB) Holsters

Ideal for both open carry and concealed carry under a jacket or loose shirt, OWB holsters like the Glock-Compatible OWB Orion Holster feature a paddle attachment. This holster enables swift and effortless attachment directly to the waistband, eliminating the requirement for a separate belt. It accommodates belts up to 2 inches wide.

Known for their user-friendly design, sleek profile, and comfortable fit, OWB paddle holsters offer an excellent option for individuals seeking a versatile and convenient hoster solution.

Inside the Waistband (IWB) Holsters

For those who prioritize concealment and comfort, an IWB holster like the Glock-Compatible IWB Intrepid Holster from Eclipse Holsters is ideal. This holster is specifically designed to be worn inside the waistband, allowing you to carry your Glock discreetly without the need for a belt. The slim design keeps your firearm close enough to be accessible while providing a secure fit. Crafted from durable Kydex®, the Intrepid Holster provides a secure fit that ensures your Glock is always within easy reach.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Glock Gun Holster

When choosing your Glock holster, consider the right balance between comfort, concealment, accessibility, and retention. Let's break down each of these important considerations:

  • Comfort: Choose a holster that integrates naturally with your daily wear, whether it's classic leather or lightweight Kydex®. A comfortable holster encourages regular use, which is key for effective defense.

  • Concealment: IWB holsters are great for concealment, though OWB holsters can also work with the right clothing.

  • Accessibility: The holster must ensure your Glock is readily accessible, supporting a quick, smooth draw.

  • Retention: Your holster must securely hold your firearm to prevent accidental drops or unauthorized access.

Customizing Your Glock Gun Holster for Optimal Fit and Function

Customization is key to getting the most out of your holster. It allows you to tailor your holster to fit your Glock perfectly and to accommodate any modifications you might have on your firearm.

Accommodating RMR, Raised Sights, and Threaded Barrels

Many Glock owners customize their firearms with accessories like RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) sights, raised sights, or threaded barrels for suppressors. Your holster must be able to accommodate these additions without compromising on fit or function. Eclipse Holsters offers options that are designed for these customizations, ensuring that your Glock still fits securely and remains easy to draw.

Adjustable Retention Systems

Adjustable retention in your holster enhances your carrying experience by giving you control over how tightly your Glock is held. This customization ensures security while allowing for quick draws when needed. Eclipse Holsters offers this feature, ensuring the perfect fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use one holster for multiple Glock models?

While some holsters may accommodate similar-sized models, for optimal safety and performance, it's best to use a holster designed specifically for your Glock model. A custom fit ensures proper retention and accessibility, reducing the risk of accidental drops or difficulty in drawing.

What is the break-in period for a new holster?

A new holster may require a break-in period for the best fit and comfort. Leather holsters typically take longer to break in, sometimes a few weeks, as the material naturally conforms to the shape of your firearm. On the other hand, Kydex® retains its shape and rigidity from the start.
