    i have several belt holsters and am looking to try a pancaker. i want it for open carry so would prefer a thumbstrap, and leather so i look good. also i know the high-ride style is all the rage but that leaves me with the grip dug into my rather shapely love handle. does anyone make a low-rider (i dont know the term for it) where the grip is about even with the belt line?

    btw application is a glock 23

    In order to keep the butt out of your tactical padding, you'll need to go with a duty holster.

    Any pancake holster is going to dig-in to some degree.

    i know but my tactical padding is all above the belt. so if the holster was low enough to position the tip of the grip even with the belt it wont be a problem.

    Do you want a "pancake" or a "paddle" holster.

    All pancakes (as far as I know) slide on the belt since that is one of their features with the widely set apart belt loops to provide good support.

    A paddle holster will allow you to hook it onto your belt (and remove it) typically with a spring type attachment.

    Not leather, but how about a Blade-Tech drop and offset holster with the tech-lock attachment?
