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.
Types of Holsters for A 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.
Inside The Waistband (IWB) Holsters
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.
This Glock 20 holster is an OWB option, or is to be worn outside the waist band and has versions for both left and right handed people. It makes drawing and re-holstering convenient for its users and is made from laminated Cordura nylon. It has an adjustable thumb break and retention strap.
It has waterproof closed cell foam padding for comfort, and also has a smooth nylon lining
It is made from high quality materials and with quality stitching
It has a steel belt clip that is strong and durable and has a leather backing for a belt clip carry
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.
Glock 20 Holsters Final Thoughts
Upon looking at the different holsters for your Glock 20, I can say that the Concealment Express IWB KYDEX Holster would be my ultimate top pick. This Glock 20 holster trumps the rest I compared because of its top notch quality and its efficiency as a concealed carrying holster. It’s also very comfortable which is an essential consideration and its craftsmanship is admired by many.
On last note – if you’re a Glock lover than please let us know your best choice for either – Glock 17 or Glock 19. Thanks!
