  • Is there an actual good waistband holster to conceal a Glock 17?

    Posted by Mateo on November 12, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    I have a Glock 17 Gen 4 I would love to EDC, but I am an average sized man (5’11 and 180) so unless I am wearing a lot of clothing, I have found EDCing a Glock 17 to be difficult. I have been trying to trade for a Glock 19, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a good polymer waist band holster to conceal a weapon as large as a Glock 17. I know they arent Huge, but they certainly are not small.

    Good owb holster at 4 o’clock and heavy belt hides it well, I carried a 17 for 5 years and now a 20.

    IWB with a 17 can be uncomfortable depending on body shape.

    If you go Appendix, I have carried my G34 in an AnR Design holster with no issue. I’m 6’2 200lbs

    Where do you carry? A full size frame is probably a little big for your size to conceal in any position other than appendix. We’re close enough in size that I can kinda speak from experience. I run my 17 appendix at work where I’m constantly bending over picking up heavy shit and having to moving around in all different positions and it doesn’t bother me and stays hidden. I wear LAPG Terrain flex pants and a t-shirt and it conceals. Also, an undershirt makes a world of difference in comfortability and not ripping stomach hair out on the draw.

    This one is pretty solid. In general, the glock 17 is pretty large. Not terrible though.

    Glock 17 IWB Gun Holster

    I’m about the same size as you.

    I’d save up for an IWB for a 19 so when you get one, you’ll have a holster. The 17 is way to big to CCW every day. F that. Been there, tried that. At 6’1″ 280lbs I could not CCW my G22. I ended up getting a 43 & absolutely love it for CCW.

    I prefer Remora holsters when it comes to IWB carry. Outside the waistband, I use a Fobus evolution holster. The really nice feature about the Fobus is that it fits my 19 and 17 equally well.

    Depending on where you carry will change which holster im 6′ 220ish and can comfortably conceal a 19x with a x300u at appendix position again your mileage may vary. I use a trex arms sidecar v2 or a LAS concealment ronin 3.0L i dont know if the extra inch makes that much of a difference but definitely being skinnier helps have you tried buying a shirt size up? As if it prints just a little bit here and there most wont notice as people are clueless however if its printing as if youre wearing an underarmour athletic shirt then thats a no go.
