Chest holster recommendations.....
« on: October 31, 2016, 06:47:05 PM »
I am looking for suggestions for a chest holster for my G-21. I have a 10mm conversion for it and I would like to pack it in the field for hunting and hiking.

I have a Guides Choice chest rig from Diamond D leathers for my Ruger Super Blackhawk and it is a great set up. I was doing some research on the net and found the Kenai chest holster from Gunfighters Inc. Does anyone have any experience with this company?

I have 3 chest holsters and they are all good.

1. DD
2. Grizzly Tuff
3. Simply Rugged

Not sure number 2 is still in business but it is an outstanding rig.

Both the leather ones are top notch quality.

Simply Rugged is more versitile as you can use the ho,step by its self for strong side or cross or attached to the chest straps.

Does anybody make a good shoulder holster for the Glock G40 MOS with a red dot optic attached?

Seems like a lot of the holsters I've seen on-line have a support strap right where the optics attach to the slide!

My buddy and I are going to try hunting whitetail deer with our 10mm pistols next month, but we are having trouble finding the right holster.

Please help!

I have a Kenai and Ronin from Gunfightersinc. They make excellent stuff, their customer support is also top notch.
My Kenai is for A S&W 4506/1006.

This is copied from another thread: http://10mm-firearms.com/gearequipment/g20-night-sights-recommendation/


I just check to see if my Glock 20/21 will fit in my Bianchi M-12 holster. It does.  ;D ;D ;D



The only bad thing is that it doesn't look like it will work with the 6" barrel. I think 5.3" is all that can fit in the M-12 (the stock Glock barrel is 4.6")

You can get a hip extender and mag pouch.



Here is the chest harness.



and the shoulder harness.




I have all these parts.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I bought them about 30 years ago.

I am happy now.


P.S. I think the hip extender can be used with the chest harness, but I am not 100% sure.

If not already mentioned,  ManGearAlaska makes a very nice chest rig. It's what holds my glock 20 when I'm in the woods.
I tend to get wet alot when fishing and prefer the non leather holster options.

I like the Kenai, but would love to buy their harness and then make my own holster of leather to avoid the noise of drawing from Kydex in a hunting situation.

Anyone know of anything similar to the bianchi M-12 that will fit the Glock 40?  I would prefer nylon over leather or molded plastic if I can. Main uses are Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, and working in northern Minnesota woods.

I have two that I like a aweful lot..

 1) Double Diamond Holsters out of Alaska. https://www.diamonddcustomleather.com/

  2) Hill People gear. https://hillpeoplegear.com/Products/tabid/762/CategoryID/1/Default.aspx

The HP is a pack with a holster and better for social affairs in the outdoors requiring a side arm and quick access as well as incontestability.



I really like the HP kit Bag. I wear mine all the time!



The Diamond is just that absolutely beautiful and built for life. Excellent quality and performance.

I can also recommend the Hill People gear kit bag. I have the recon and carry a Glock G40 with a Deltapoint Pro mounted to it and it fits nicely. It's a good idea to watch the video on how to draw. Once you have it down, it works very nicely.

I ordered a "custom" chest holster from Paradise Valley Leather for my RIA 52000---spoke with Gordon Dellwo and he told me they have not yet made one for a 6" slide 1911 but he would try if I wanted to be the guinea pig ----I'll report back once I get it, should be a few weeks more till it shows up at my door

here is a link to the one I ordered http://paradisevalleyleather.com/leather-chest-holster-for-semi-autos/

I would recommend Hill People kit bag as you can also stow compass map etc in a front access bag. Just did a 9 mile hike yesterday with one and my Glock.  I put velcro on a hard index holster to position it in pouch for a good draw. Good stuff.
