Trusted by militaries, law enforcement, and civilians across the globe, Glock makes some of the most popular and reliable handguns in the world. Because of their popularity and easy availability, owners often wonder what’s the best holster for their Glock. I’ve come up with a list of great, affordable Glock holsters and outlined them below.
The popularity of Glocks also means that most of the holsters I’ve featured below are available for most other Glock models. You really can’t go wrong with a Glock, and you won’t go wrong holstering your Glock in any of these great options.
Tuck-N-Go 2.0: Carrying the Small Glock 43
Perfect for everyday carry, the compact Glock 43 is a popular concealed carry option chambered in 9mm. You can conceal the Glock 43 comfortably and discretely in a Galco leather holster like the Tuck-N-Go 2.0 IWB – inside the waistband – holster. The Tuck-N-Go 2.0 features an open top, allowing for a fast, smooth draw. The reinforced mouth makes it easy to return your handgun to the holster.
The belt clips are adjustable for cant, making it perfect for strongside, cross draw, or appendix carry positions. The clip is also reversible. That makes the Tuck-N-Go a solid choice for right and left-handed shooters. It comes with a UniClip that is designed to go over a belt, but an Ultimate Stealth Clip option fits on a trouser waistband under or behind a belt with just the clip showing.
The Glock 17 is a full-size defensive handgun. If you’re carrying it, there’s a good chance you’re either open carrying or you’re concealing it in a belt holster with a cover garment. Either way, a great choice is the 1791 BH2.1 OWB – outside the waistband – leather belt holster. It’s a great choice because the open-top design allows for a quick draw.
The BH2.1 features reinforced stitching, and it’s handcrafted to fit multiple similar-sized firearms. Just make sure to check the fits before holstering a different handgun to ensure it’s designed for that gun as well. Because it’s designed to fit a variety of Glock pistols, it’s a perfect choice for those of us who own more than one.
Smaller in size than the Glock 17, the Glock 19 is one of the most popular and versatile Glocks available today. Because many people choose to conceal carry the Glock 19, a perfect holster choice is the Galco Summer Comfort IWB holster. While the Summer Comfort is great in warmer weather, it’s actually fit for all seasons. This unique design allows you to both attach and detach the holster without taking off your belt.
It’s handcrafted with reinforced steerhide to make sure it retains its shape when the handgun is removed. This provides for easy reholstering. The smooth leather construction is comfortable against the body, and the full firing grip clearance allows for a quick draw. The Summer Comfort for the Glock 19 also fits several other Glock models.
Bianchi Professional: Great for Your Glock 30 Subcompact
The Glock 30 is popular among law enforcement and concealed carriers looking for something chambered for the trusty .45 ACP. An excellent choice of holsters for the Glock 30 is the Bianchi Professional IWB holster. It’s perfect for deep concealment. The Professional features a raised sweat guard that protects your body from the handgun and protects the handgun from sweat.
The heavy-duty belt clip allows you to easily slide the holster on and off while still keeping the holster stable and secure when carrying. The holster rides at the optimum angle to ensure you can draw quickly with a proper firing grip. The Professional from Bianchi also fits several other Glock models.
DeSantis Nemesis: Subcompact Carry With the Glock 26
Nicknamed the “Baby Glock,” the Glock 26 is a popular model for security personnel, law enforcement, and everyday concealed carriers because of its size and reliability. Thanks to its size, the Glock 26 also allows for pocket carry. A good holster choice for the Glock 26 is the DeSantis Gunhide Nemesis pocket holster.
DeSantis claims this holster will absolutely not move out of position in your front pocket due to the “viscous” outer material. The inside of the holster is made of slick cloth, which offers a low-friction draw. The foam body also breaks up the outline of the gun.
The Glock 22 chambered in .40 caliber has been a staple for law enforcement for years. Similarly sized to the Glock 17, the Glock 22 carries well in an Alien Gear ShapeShift AIWB holster. Constructed of a breathable, perforated neoprene base, the ShapeShift AIWB also offers an option for a single point of attachment. This makes it fit for concealed carry even if you prefer appendix carry. Like all ShapeShift holsters, they’re compatible with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System, so it’s a versatile choice you’ll go to over and over again.
While the Glock 21 is a larger handgun chambered in .45, you can still carry it concealed. All it takes is the right holster. That holster? Galco’s KingTuk IWB holster. This hybrid design combines the best of both worlds. The backing is made of saddle leather and lined with premium center cut steerhide. The handgun is secured with a rigid Kydex shell that’s a custom fit for your model handgun to ensure a proper, safe fit.
This IWB holster has two attachment points to properly distribute the weight of a larger handgun, and it offers two different clips to ensure proper fit with your clothing choice. The clips are adjustable for carry height to suit your individual preference. The KingTuk is available for most Glock models, and it's my go-to EDC holster.
Sure, there are many other Glock models I could have gone with, but the ones I chose are very popular. The beautiful thing about Glocks is that they have multiple models with varying calibers that are similarly sized. That means holsters are readily available for every model. Choose the holster that best suits your needs and practice your draw often to keep that muscle memory sharp. You can’t go wrong with any of these choices or combinations.
