    I was just talked into working a weekend security gig for $25hr to sit on my butt all day, but I have to use a company provided weapon which is either a Glock 9 or 40cal. The guy I spoke with doesn't know the model number and they don't issue but a cheap leather holster. I am looking at getting a Safariland 6360 or similar from Ebay but they don't know which model Glocks they have. Will a 19 fit a 17/22 holster? I know nothing about Glock (S&W) fan here.

    Yes. The ALS system locks on the barrel hood area and the only difference in dimensions between the G19 and G17 are the bottom of the grip and the front of the slide.

    SOME kydex holsters that lock onto the WML will not work for both, but nearly all G17/22 holsters will also work for G19/23.

    Thanks, I knew it locked onto the barrel hood just wasn't sure if it would line up. I have a 6360 for my M&P. I wanted to stick with the same. I also have a Blackhawk Serpa Level 3 for the M&P I know a glock fits, but I don't like mix matching.

    Just got off the phone with them and they ordered a brand new G19 with night sights that will be here next week.

    Just me thinking here but I wouldn't lay out a dime for a holster for someone else's gun (especially not for what sounds like a warm body gig) unless I knew I was going to be there long enough to make it worth my while.

    Good advice but you can get used Safarilands for like $30 on eBay so it’s not a huge risk.

    They have a several year contract with this retail store and another one is a high level corporation that sometimes needs armed guards for whatever reason. Seems to pop up quiet a bit. I figured under $50 would be good insurance seeing how I will be around a lot of people.

    I mean if it's an ongoing gig it would be worth it. Just when you said you were going to spend most of your time sitting on your ass I ASS-U-ME-d it was a warm body job and there weren't going to be too many people around

    The corporation gets threatened a lot I guess and brings in armed services for a month or two so I would assume it’s sitting in a lobby. The other is a grocery chain that I would just be hanging at the door and register area.

    I've been night watchman at an empty warehouse for 6 month. I have the entire place to myself and all I have to do is walk the fence line twice an hour. I'm getting spoiled

    Did that around 2007 or so for a faucet factory that closed up. Got up and walked the inside and outside and found the boiler room door open that was closed an hour before. Only way to open it was from the inside too. The place had minimal power so I called the local PD and they sent K9. He says he’s pretty sure someone was in there at one point and left. After that I kept my butt in that office and watched cameras. It was so dark in there at 2am I could have walked right past the guy and never knew. Still no idea how they got in and for how long. I’m just doing these gigs on weekends to help out a friend and make some extra money.

    Most holsters will work for a series of firearms of similar builds, depending on how tight the kydex fits. So 17/19 will normally fit in the same holster. Same thing for G 22/23. You can play it really safe and use the issued crappy holster until you know for sure what firearm it is, then order your own holster.

    The Glock factory holsters are dirt cheap and work better than most. The come in 2 sizes, one for any 9mm, 40, 357 sig frame and another for the larger 10mm and 45 frames.

    Another that I like. The Phalanx holsters will fit almost any pistol. I can use the same holster for Glock, Smith M&P, Ruger or Sig. They make several versions. IWB, OWB, left and right handed as well as one long enough to cover the slide and barrel and another shorter version.

    I’m a big fan of safariland 5199 for G23.
    level 1 retention with an easy on/off clip, matter of fact I used the same model for my M&P40 also.

    I am in need of a duty holster. Level 2 at minimum and preferred level 3. They don’t want me conceal carrying it. I’ll be cargo pants and polo shirt. They want full duty belt from what I was told. Due to insurance reasons and this being one of the largest security firms in the country I must use their firearm and taser if issued.

    Nope. Let’s put it this way we use a lot of their products several times a day. Mostly when we wake up and before we go to bed.

    I can imagine, but there's no point in potentially doxxing yourself over it. Congrats (on it not being Comcast) and good luck!

    As for the holster, I used a few different rigs in the military and a Safariland was far and away the best fit/finish. It's where I'd start if I had to do it all over again. Hopefully your belt won't be too crowded for the gun, but if is you might look at drop leg if that's an option.

    I’d still go with safariland reasonable prices.
