Your new Glock 20 packs quite a punch, but now you’re looking for the right holster. We’ve done all the research comparing the different Glock 20 holsters on the market.
We have picked 5 Glock 20 holsters we think deserve your attention, but lets talk a little about the types of holsters for your Glock 20.
This is by far the most common way of carrying a gun with you. This type of holster is attached to your belt using either loops or slots.
It can also use a paddle so that you can remove it more easily.
If you’re looking for a belt holster for concealed carrying purposes, you may want to get one that is attached with loops rather than a paddle as it will be less visible and stay on better during a physical struggle.
Belt holsters are often made of one of three materials: leather, kydex, or nylon. While all work well for a holster, the cheaper ones (nylon and kydex) are a bit more bulky than their leather counterparts.
Leather holsters will need to be ‘broken in’ as they may need to stretch to be able to accommodate your Glock 20.
For better concealment, you may want to use an IWB holster. It’s available in the same materials as a belt holster
This type has better retention as it keeps the gun lower and closer to your body, which makes it harder for your assailant to take the gun away from you.
Make sure that you can re-holster your gun with one hand when you’re using an IWB holster. This is important because you may need one of your hands to be free for combat or safety purposes, or even to get someone else to safety.
Get an IWB that sits high enough for you to reach it comfortably. Some tend to sit too low and that extra moment you take when drawing may mean the difference between life and serious harm or death.
Don’t be tempted to attach your Glock with just a grip or clip with no holster because the trigger movement is short for Glocks and can cause unwanted incidences.
Not very many firearm carriers use a shoulder holster for their guns due to the fact that they can be uncomfortable to wear for long durations of time.
If you’re a woman, anatomy may also come into play, rendering shoulder holsters extremely uncomfortable.
Its high position allows you to conceal them under a jacket and makes them far more comfortable for seated use than an inside-the-waistband or paddle holster.
There are other holster options for your Glock 20, like a pocket holster or ankle holster, but because of the Glock 20’s size they wouldn’t be very practical. Now that we’ve covered the types of holster for a Glock 20, we can get to the actual holsters we picked.

We suggest searching Amazon, for a holster specific to the light you have. Here is an example of a Glock 20 with light holster option we found. You can also go on Etsy and find custom holster makers.
The best chest holster for a Glock 20 is by far the Kenai Chest Holster.
The buckles are strategically located to be out of way of pack straps and minimize any rub spots. It’s adjustable for most body types and can be worn low or high on the chest.

Do you know anyone who actually ankle carries a Glock 20 ?
Disappointing that you left out High Threat Concealment – they offer very high quality IWB and OWB holsters for the G20, with and without weapon lights.
They also offer a kydex (?) belt loop set that is rigid and attaches at both ends, so it is absolutely secure and doesn’t deform. Most belt clips, whether mon or dual clip are designed to clip over the belt and have an unsecured bottom end – these deform in use and ultimately stretch away from the holster, making them vulnerable to slipping over the belt and loosing your weapon.
Raven concealment also has OWB & IWB holsters, with and without weaponlight. The Phantom was an excellent holster, but is no longer available. I haven’t used the newer models.
