    I would like to find a nice right-hand belt holster with a thumb break for my G19. I tried a Tagua holster for my last Glock because it was only $19, but the leather on the inside of the holster started to wear off and stain the gun. I'm not opposed to the plastic holsters like the Fobus, but I would rather have a nice quality leather holster. Thanks for your help fellas :)

    yep they are crap. if your holster cost less than your check at apple bees something is wrong. Don Hume does make good stuff, and if you have to have leather, and you have to have a thumb break, neither one of which i am a fan, then don hume would be a good choice for you.

    I will agree that you usually get what you pay for but their are exceptions. The best holster I have ever had for my Glock has been a Glock Combat holster. It's only fault is it's level of retention is not good enough for OC in my opinion.

    Thanks for the replies fellas. Do the plastic holsters like Fobus scar up your slide?

    Fobus holster are so thick and not comfortable for CCW.. I highly advise Blade-Tech IWB Nano holsters..

    Cheers,

    Desantis Mini-Slide works great. Holds the gun nice and tight and is very comfortable. I wear one all day every day (most days).

    Galco also makes some nice ones, but they're quite proud of their stuff.

    Safariland makes a nifty little belt slide, #527-83-61 RH, 527-83-62 LH, and is reasonably priced and also comfortable.

    Thanks fellas. I think ill be staying away from IWB holsters. I just want an outside belt holster but I don't know whether to get leather or plastic. Do the plastic ones scar up your gun?

    don't get a plastic one get a kydex if you are going with synthetic material. you shoudln't hve an issue with it scaring your handgun, bu what if it does , the handgun is a tool same as the holster.

    I just picked up a G 19 and ordered an OWB pancake holster from Adams Leatherworks. His work looks great, and comes at a very good price. Check his site out.

    Bianchi AccuMold size 11 is a perfect fit for the G19.

    I have a safariland 5188 without the thumb break. It's suede lined and kydex outside with a paddle. I have carried it for a year now and it's holding up great (industrial shop environment 40 hours a week). My blackhawk holster only lasted 11 months before the paddle broke.

    Shameless plug for my favorite, UBG Holsters. Prices are very reasonable.

    Google this: glock sport combat holster

    I use one for a glock 30, and for ME, it is the best OWB holster under $100.

    and it's cheap too.

    Carried my G19 in a horsehide Kramer #3 IWB for years and it wore some of the finish off the slide near the muzzle. Not too bad. Standard holster wear.

    Then I switched to a kydex holster (plastic), which seems to generate almost all of its retention at the front of the trigger guard, which is now slightly worn. Not too bad. Standard holster wear.

    In other words, on my Glock, you'd notice the wear from the leather holster sooner than you'd notice the wear from the kydex one, if you noticed the latter at all.

    This one claims to be perfect and is < 11 bucks at Optics Planet. I like it OK and it's ambi if the need ever arises. You never know when you might need that.

    My advise is do away with the strap and get a good opentop pancake or modified pancake...if you gotta have the strap the Galco fletch high ride.....without you can look to the Desantis speed scabbard...or a little nicer that Galco concealment holster (front molded modified pancake...very nice around $85 Any good holster maker should have a good stronside pancake or modified pancake...check midwayusa and you can read reviews for some. I had a fletch for a 1911...I use open top now.

    Thanks a lot man!! Wow that Don Hume H721 is a nice lookin piece :) I also like the 721 O.T. so I guess I need to decide whether I want/need the thumbbreak or not. Obviously the thumbbreak is just there for safety purposes right?

    On a concealed holster a safety strap is not really necessary. A properly fitted holster will retain the gun just fine. I would want some extra retention against outside forces on an open carry holster, however.
