However, the difference in concealability is huge. I always carry in an IWB, and this hides about as easily as a G26.

I also carry in an IWB holster.

This Kramer horsehide holster was designed to carry my G33, but after I sold that handgun, I wasn't about to pay another $100 or so for a new G20 one.

Excellent holster quality BTW.

It covers the trigger like it's supposed to and holds the G20 very well, but there was a slight hesitation when inserting my Glock that gave me the impression of something pressing against the trigger, even though there wasn't anything doing so. :o

That is why I rounded the front of the trigger guard, and now it slides in a lot smoother without that scary (am I about to get Glock leg) pause it once had.  :D

The grip reduction works perfect with no problems encountered ever, and of course you can still use the original 15 round magazines without problems if desired.

Best of both worlds IMO.  8)

That is pretty slick.

I use a Theis Hybrid Holster that is very comfortable.  I'm a big fan of the hybrid format.  However, thanks to a Midway USA gift certificate I got for Christmas, I've got a Galco Summer Comfort on the way, to try out that form of holster.

If I fall in love with the Galco, later on I will invest in a Milt Sparks Summer Special.

Had the Milt Sparks Summer Special for a Colt Govt. Model and it is a very nice holster with a metal band reinforcement to hold the holster mouth open.

However, at one time I cocked and locked the pistol on an empty chamber and took it  quad ridding with me into the woods, and at the end of the day the safety had somehow worked itself off! :o

The Kramer has had no such problem even after years of rough trail use.

Probably because the Glock doesn't have thumb safety to begin with.  :))

Just didn't like that hesitation when inserting the Glock into the IWB Kramer.

May not even had been the holster's fault because of course it was originally not made for the G20, but now it does work well with the rounded front trigger guard.
