IWB Holster for Glock 23 gen 4

Hello all,

I'm wondering what the opinions are you all concerning concealed carry with a glock in regards to IWB holsters.

I have a glock 23 gen 4. 4/12 inch barrel. The handgun itself i believe is just under 6 1/2 inches long

I'm currently in the market for a IWB holster here are the stipulations I need for this holster.

1. Under 50$
2. Non Kydex
3. does not need a belt to be secured in your pants ( so i can use it with my gym shorts)
4. Preferably deep carry
5. No top strap
6. NOT a belly band
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i wouldn't advise carrying anything on the waist w/out a belt, definitely not gym shorts...

that said, you might be looking at a paddle style holster, ...but i doubt there are many paddle holsters out there that are concealable..

You may want to look into thigh holsters; they may suit your need of "deep concealment" while not relying on a belt. I'm assuming that you could pull up your shorts to draw (like basketball shorts as opposed to running shorts). You could also try to make/modify a drop-leg holster for concealment if you don't want to wear the weapon on the inside of your leg.



You can also look into Uncle Mike's neoprene IWB holsters:

http://www.unclemikes.com/products/i..._holsters.html

I carried a 1911 in one of these for a while, but ended up buying a smaller gun for IWB carry because the full size weapon was too cumbersome and uncomfortable in this holster.

can't hotlink the image


Mr. Softy is what I think I've got, it's been a while and I looked at a ton of their options but my buddy who owns a gunshop has carried with his highnoon holster for 12 years and it just gets softer and doesn't fall apart. The one that I have is a tuckable holster so I can tuck a shirt in with the holster IWB and all you see is the metal clip over my belt, hard to tell what it is.

Well worth the money great product. IMO if you're going to spend $20 on an Uncle Mikes neo (i've used them, they're a decent product) you may as well spend $30-35 on a leather one that'll last forever.

I use a Don Hume (leather) IWB w/ clip (no thumb break) for my Glock 23. But carrying a Glock 23 for gym shorts isn't happening much I can assure you as I have tried to clip and carry on some sport pants and shorts. Even with a draw string, the weight of the gun is too much. Look into a Velcro spandex waist strap for use on that.

That's a good one too, which I have but I don't use. If its the one I'm thinking with the soft leather and a plastic clip, my problem I had with it was using it at the range. Practicing draw and shoot was difficult because the leather collapses upon draw and it became difficult to reholster my weapon.

I like my Elite IWB holsters.

I know you said no Kydex, but the Mic Holster is handy. I love mine, even if you dont wear its nice to keep in your truck or on the night stand with the trigger guard secured.

I was skeptical about it at first too but it is actually the easiest for me to conceal there.
