    Question Handgun holster for use in combination with plate carrier/chest rig

    So here is my situation.

    I'm 6'1" 205lbs, athletic. I use either a PC or chest rig with 8 mag pouches in combination with a HSGI padded molle battle belt. I currently have a G17 Mission First holster on the right hand side of the belt. Whenever I draw from the holster while wearing all of this, my pistol hand hits the PC/chest rig and I need to contort my body to the left and push my right hip out in order to draw the pistol. This is bad for several reasons and I need to be able to draw my pistol without getting hung up on PC/chest rig.

    I know I could use a drop leg holster, but those come with other issues. I'd much prefer a belt holster w/ molle attachment that allows me to draw smoothly. Here's what I would like in the holster:

    -G17
    -Kydex (or something similar)
    -Level 2 retention
    -Molle Compatible
    -Sits low, but not a thigh holster
    -Offset away from the body

    I used the search function and didn't find exactly what I was looking for. Any insight?

    Is there a reason you can’t attach a Safariland duty style holder to the belt itself instead of usukng the MOLLE? Say like the 6395 with a QLS?

    The molle covers the belt, so I donít think so. Will check when I get home just to make sure.

    I use one of these, but Iím using the HSGI belt with micro pad. No complaints yet. I donít know if it will work with your setup.

    It should have a slot to mount holsters directly to the belt. Look at the bottom of the MOLLE for a seam.

    First, why are you carrying eight mags? Most dudes on deployment carry six on them and one in the gun, max. Second, Safariland ALS with a variety of mounting options. I prefer the G-Code MULE since I had the same issue as you (except with side plates instead of mags) but they have an optimal drop mount option and there is also the S&S precision mount that is adjustable. The G-Code RTI or Safariland QLS/QMS(?) is probably the most stand off that youíre going to get.

    I use an Uncle Mike's Reflex holster with the Removable Rotating Belt Loop. It drops the holster down a few inches and then you can also rotate it if sitting. Works great for me.

    Iím in a program that requires 9 mags total. However, I believe they dropped it down to 7.


    So I checked and the padded belt does have a slot for the holster. I appreciate you guys pointing that out. Saves a lot of pain and suffering. Just bought a G Code SOC RTI with drop belt attachment. Thanks for the help all.

    I'm a little late, but the Safariland Drop Flex Adaptor and Leg Shroud with your choice of Safariland holster would do everything you want. I use one every day with my G17 and X300U to keep it out of the way of my outer carrier for soft armor and plate carrier should I need to put it on.

    I do have to ask, what program has you packing around that much ammo?
