    I recently purchased a G36 and am planning on giving it a try as a primary carry gun. Been carrying 1911's for years but they seems to get a little heavier every day or perhaps I am just getting order.

    Anyways looking for some holster suggestions. What are you G36 guys using for IWB?


    Thanks

    Andy

    Not a 36, but I carry my G30sf in a Milt Spark VMII. Very comfortable and secure. But I guess recommending a Milt Sparks isn't exactly adding much new information, huh? I have carried with a blade tech IWB, but that was pretty uncomfortable.

    VMII are super nice and I definitely prefer that style of holster. But don't want to wait 6-7 months for one. Perhaps after I decide it keep it in the carry rotation. Would be nice to find something more readily available and in the $50 - $70 range.

    Andy,

    Be aware that with in the pants carry you have to be extra careful with the glocks. It's easy to get your cover garmet caught in the trigger resulting in an AD. That being said the best holster I would recomend is made by Hansons Holsters of Lincoln City.

    It is made with a single holder on the belt with a double snap. It has a re-enforced top so it won't close after you draw the gun. It is smoothe out so it won't irritate you if you carry it all day. The fit is so good you don't need any safety straps.

    Best ITPC holster bar none.

    I don't know about a website. He is a cop and builds holsters on the side. Had good writeups in some of the magazines.

    I carry a G26 in a Comp-Tac MTAC. Very comfortable holster, even with my not-so-compact USP .45 Compact it conceals well and remains comfortable. Some people say the retention on it isn't tight enough, but I've done a lot of moving around and haven't had a problem yet.

    They're a little more expensive at $80, but in my mind worth it. The Spartan is essentially the same only less the leather backing over the t-nuts and less money. Great customer service as well. Placed my order on a Friday and it shipped the following Tuesday, had it by Friday that week even though their website claimed a 7-day production time.

    They carry real nice in a Crossbreed super tuck. Comfort, easy draw and reholster and in that price range. DoubleTap turned me on to these a while back, he carries a 36 in one as well.

    I carried a G19 in a Blade Tech kydex holster for the better part of a decade. The wear was about what I have seen in leather.

    So far no wear, but I've only carried it for 6 weeks.

    I have a Comp-Tac Shirt Tucker for a G36 that has been sitting in my drawer for a while. Let me know if you are interested and we can work something out.

    +1 on the Comp-Tac products. I carry a G27 most of the time in an MTAC, and also carry a G30SF in an MTAC.... They are both very concealable, and extremely comfortable. Wearing a T-Shirt under your outer garment definitely makes it more comfy though. Good luck.
    With the colder weather setting in, I have been carrying with an Aker Flatsider also. Certainly not as concealable as the MTAC, but it is crazy comfortable. Good luck.
    Oh ya, about the Kydex. I think it wears on the gun less than the leather holster does. my $0.02.

    I carry a G17 almost daily in a Comp-Tac Infidel holster. It has caused NO finish issues, however, if you are worried about holster wear on your pistol, you should probably be carrying a different pistol.

    I understand wondering if it's going to strip the finish right off of your pistol and make it look destroyed after a month of carrying (which it wont, at least with a quality pistol).

    Up until today..I carried my 36 in a Crossbreed Supertuck.. Excellent holster.. As for finish wear..mine was Hardchromed..and that finish DOES NOT wear.. But..my experience has been that kydex is no harder on a finsh than leather..and holds it's shape better..unless you want to get serious..and go Horsehide..
