Thread: OC Holster for running.
20 years old and can't get my CCDW until August but I run around my neighborhood usually around sunrise but is still dark, but never know if I'm am going to need my firearm. I have a belly band for when I start CC'ing but I carry a Glock 27 so not a lot will be visible and don't want to leave any reason for a LEO to stop me. Anyone have a solution or a holster than would stay pretty stable while running?
Similar to a Serpa, but can rotate 360 degrees and be locked in any position. Paddle or belt loop available. Black Kydex. About $30.
DeSantis Thumb Break Scabbard
Leather 3 slot for different positions. Vertical. forward cant or cross draw. Black or tan. Plain or basketweave, lined or unlined. About $70-$80.
I have both and like them. Good retention on both. Both will secure your weapon while running. The DeSantis is a great holster. I know it's a lot of money, but it is open ended (as is the Itac) so it will fit any 9mm, .357 or .40 cal. Glock. I'll always own one, so it's a lifetime investment or a valuable accessory if you want to sell the gun.

I actually have a Level II retention holster that looks almost Identical to that iTac. I love it and it does have great retention and love the trigger release so that it would be more difficult for someone to try to upholster my weapon from behind. But I have tried to run with it before, for athletic pants or sweat pants or anything like that it sags and bounces around a lot. I have tried just running for a short distance in jeans when I have a belt on and it is pretty stable then but for sweats, or athletic pants/shorts just doesn't feel to stable for me. I wonder if wearing my belly band on the outside of my clothes would raise any concerns with LEOs that may be in the area...
If I am wearing athletic shorts I just put a belt on underneath my shorts, and slip on my safariland 6378 paddle holster. That has worked out very well for me.
