Advice needed on pistol holster

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

So I have taken up the role of sniper now and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. I am now purchasing a Glock 18c as a sidearm and I am looking for the best way to holster it.

 

In my sniper role all my kit is stored about my person in pockets, in other words I am not using webbing of any sort.

 

What options do I have for the pistol? Leg holster, shoulder holster??? What experience could you guys share with me. May be a hip belt and carry a limited webbing system of sorts??

 

Jon

Are you right-handed? If so, get a left-handed paddle holster and put it in the small of your back. Really comfortable, and very easy access if you're in the prone position. I use a Fobus and can really recommend it.

Either mounted on chest rig / plate carrier, on waist (paddle or on a belt rig) would be my preference.

Leg holsters are okay if adjusted properly, shoulder holsters I don't think are very good. Compared to other options, shoulder holsters are only really good for concealed carry IMO. When I hear shoulder holster I think agent / secret service sort of thing.

With a shoulder holster, have to reach up and across your chest to get it, so it takes a lot longer.

Furthermore it means you can't quickly engage a target straight after drawing your weapon (which you can do if your holster is at the waist)

 

WE and TM Glocks aren't exactly real dimensions but it will fit a wider Fobus holster

(designed for the G21 chambered in .45 instead of 9x19mm) Unfortunately the other big moulded holster manufacturers such as Blackhawk / IMI don't make Glock 21 holsters.
