How To Choose The Perfect OWB Holster For Your Glock 45 

Glock 45 is the most widely used pistol by civilians. It is also used by militaries and law enforcement agencies around the world and now has a home in the industry’s best secret holster.

If you are a Glock 45 owner, having the best holster for your Glock 45 is important. Holsters are an important part of your concealed carry setup and can make or break your weapon experience. The only thing worse than not having your gun with you all the time is carrying it in a big holster that makes you look like the bad guy. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The type of holster that suits you best depends on your outfit and how often you want to use your weapon.

Finding the best holster for your Glock can be difficult. There are so many different options in the market, each with its advantages and disadvantages. This guide will help you find a good holster without making any mistakes. Follow this guide now to learn more about how to find a great Glock 45 holster! This will save you time, money, and frustration in the future.

The belt holster (OWB) attaches to your belt and lies outside the belt on your hips. These holsters are more comfortable than IWB holsters because the fabric of your belt doesn’t force the gun against your thighs. The OWB holster also allows for a faster draw because the gun’s entire grip is open and not pressed firmly against your body. They ensure comfort and easy access, and the OWB holster remains the most commonly used holster today.

6 Factors To Consider When Choosing A Holster For Your Glock 45


A holster that doesn’t hold your gun properly isn’t worth carrying, even if you wear it in a way that won’t let you escape gravity. Why? Because when the unexpected happens, you don’t want to add loose weapons to the equation. That old baggy holster may always be fun, but you won’t appreciate it if you find a gun flying around because you tripped, jumped, or had an accident. Also, make sure you can get a full shot grip when the gun is holstered. This way, you don’t have to adjust the handle after you drag.


It doesn’t matter how good your holster looks, feels, grips, and protects if it rubs you the wrong way every time you put it on. If you’re in concealed carry, you’ll get away with it pretty quickly by playing with the gun coming your way. You may also find that you wear your holster less often to avoid discomfort or that you wear your holster incorrectly to minimize discomfort, thereby lowering it. So make sure you are comfortable with the holster before buying it.


It can be dangerous to carry out your daily activities with the trigger constantly exposed, so it is important that your holster properly protects the trigger. An exposed trigger can easily hit or become caught, resulting in an indiscriminate release that could have serious consequences.


You should be able to quickly and easily remove the gun from your concealed holster. The holster should allow you to fully hold the gun while still being able to release any holding devices. The drawn line should be a relatively straight line leading to the target and aligning your line of sight.


When you look at the holster you’ve chosen, is it easy to put on and take off into your everyday wardrobe? In the end, if you find that the holster is not easy to put on or take off, you can choose to leave it alone.


You should be able to grab your weapon right away when you need it. Two components can be accessed. This is the physical grip of a firearm and the ability to detach it from a holster or other means of carrying it. Whichever carry mode you choose, you should be able to reach and present your firearm as quickly as possible.

Which Holster Should I choose?

Ultimately, the holster you choose will depend on your preferences and the situation in which you will be carrying your weapon. Think about the six qualities a holster should possess – hold, convenience, concealment, drawing, removability, and access – and decide which qualities are most important to you.

While each type of holster has its pros and cons, our opinion, and that of many concealed carry permit holders, is that the most perfect holsters in terms of concealability, comfort, and speed of pulling are OWB holsters.
