How do you carry your G17?

Traded for an early Glock 17 yesterday
because I liked the 20 rd. capacity,
and now I'm wondering what kind of holster to get for it so I can carry it at work. I have Alessi Talon + IWB holsters that work well for me with a 3" S&W M65 & Kimber Compact, but the grips on this Glock just seem too big to conceal IWB....although I may be wrong.

Anyone here have a carry method that both hides the gun well & is comfortable all day while you are relatively active? I'd sure appreciate any suggestions!

At work I usually wear jeans & tucked T-shirt with a vest in winter.... shorts with untucked T in summer.

I carry a Glock 21, which is actually a tad bigger than the 17. I find it works well both IWB and OWB. For IWB I use a Sidearmor with a 20 degree cant. OWB I use a Dillon Master, which is a pretty basic pancake holster. It doesn't vanish under just a T-shirt, though, and I'm not sure I could get it to do so. So, I wear a lightweight photographer's vest - yeah, I know it screams gun to those in our community, but I don't think the vast majority of people have any idea.

Thanks for the reply. I forgot to mention that I'm a lefty, and don't see either of the holsters you mention available left handed. :(

I use a Gould & Goodrich 3 slot Pancake Holster (http://www.gouldusa.com/catalog/showProduct.asp?modelID=85&color=Black&size=undefined&Hand=Right+Hand&Hardware=undefined&gunID=105&gunMan=GLOCK&gunModel=17) .
I got the tan model but now wish I had the black. It has 3 slots so you can wear it straight and high or slightly lower and cocked. It's a nice OWB holster. Glock-17 is to big for me to carry IWB, it would never fit in my pants. You can find this model for about $30 on various online stores. It is what most of the police supply places offer also for the Glock so I guess they use that model allot also.

A Glock-17 is really kinda large for concealed carry unless you live up north or something. I usually carry my tiny Kel-Tec P-11 9mm instead. But I have an old model Glock-17 like you and sometimes I just feel like having more firepower. :rolleyes:

I'm pretty much with you, as I usually carry a Keltec P40, which is really quite enough gun. I just would like to have the option of carrying the G17 & was wondering if anyone here carried one concealed & how they make it work for them.

Bianchi Model 7/7L Shadow - Strong side belt holster - use an oversized shirt over T-shirt for concealment.

Comp-Tac Ghurka, IWB holster, at what could be considered the 4:30 postion. It has two clips that attach to your belt and is very stable.

LH here also.
Use a KyTac Braveheart gor my 17.......
When I had a 23 used a Cen-Dex IWB.

Have his "Storm" for a 34 I shoot in IDPA & for G36 CCW
his "Taylor Nighthawk".

Both Cen-Dex IWB & the Nighthawk are Superb CCW Holsters.

All of Comp-Tac's holsters are available in left-handed versions. Good customer service, and fast delivery as well.

I carry my G17 in a Safari Land 0701. It keeps it concealed well, and looks great when open carrying. I also have a spare mag/handcuff paddle holster from Safari Land. Great combo.

Lefty too here.

Though I dont have a G17, my G19 loves to ride in a Comp-Tac Undercover.
