Kydex holster for Glock 34

Hello

I just bought a Glock 34 and I am looking for a kydex holster that is IDPA approved for it. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I purchased a KyTac for IDPA for my Glock 34. It's actualy faster than my Safariland IPSC holster and reasonably priced.

Try the web site: www.kytac.com.

Gotta agree with SB. Cen-Dex is a quality product and Frank Spezzano is a good guy to deal with. Also, he has numerous models to choose from, seemingly adding more monthly!

Tenifer and kydex are my favorite combo! :lol:

Thanx to all for the suggestions. I also prefer Kydex for games, but I think Glocks were made for this stuff.

Well, I believe that kydex is not just for games.

As posted before, I worked in the Caribbean for years, and I found that leather will mold up and rot, and that nylon will pretty much disintegrate when solvent such as avgas or fuel gets near them. So I started looking for something to fill the void, and at that time Mad Dog was making this new holster made from this wonder material called "kydex."

I got one in, and started using it, and it fit the bill. Think of this:

A patrol officer or Customs inspector is scooting on the pavement under a car looking for contraband, and has to slide a little on his/her holster. Want to do that with a piece of custom Gallagher horsehide, for example? It might hold up, but will be forever scarred.

How about making a traffic stop in El Paso, TX in April. For those that don't know, in the Spring sustained winds in this part of the country run in excess of 30 to 60 mph - blowing all the dust and desert particles everywhere - to include into the pores of leather or nylon. With kydex, you get in the car, take out your gun and wipe the holster, and stuff the gun back in. No more sandpaper abrasions on your gun.

How about someone who works on boats or in Florida? Salt water impervious.

Lots of good things about using kydex, and there are lots to select from. I have what my friend Rob Garret calls "A classic kydex collection," and have found many that I like.

I still have and use lots of leather, but for the most part, kydex fits my bill.

And they sure are fast for games, aren't they?!!!! :wink:

Just my .02 worth.

We have more good holsters now than we used to. I still like a good leather holster, but have been using a Blade Tech fits all IWB for my Glock .40's (EDITED: including a G35). It works well, no problems. That said, my next holster will be a Side Armor, great quality& customer service, and when you phone, you get the folks that run the place.

When I got a g34, I tried one of Mike Benedicts Talon Tactical holsters. Its a good design, well-made and priced right. Quality was as good as a blade-tech, but better designed. I won a Comp-Tac at an IDPA match and got to meet the maker who was also shooting, and was sufficiently impressed to order another. Hope that helps.

I use a Uncle Mike's Kydex belt holster. There cheap and work fine for IDPA/SSP & USPSA/PRODUCTION. Sooner or later you'll decide that plastic is plastic so why not get a cheap one.
The UM mag holders work fine too.
