Default Need recomendations for economical, minimalist IWB holster for G19....

I'm looking around for a IWB holster, prefering a clip over belt loops, and kydex/polymer over anything soft and moisture absorbent (like leather or nylon). Also prefer something as small and minimalist as possible, so no light option is necessary.
Not looking for the best, most expensive othing around. I'm not likely to wear this everyday (gonna be tough to dethrone my trusty little Airweight), I just want to have a decent,functional holster for when I do.
Any good info is much appreciated......

Or just go get any of the $25-30 Kydex holsters on ebay, they all work fine

Yeah, I already kinda figured that was likely my best bet, but I thought I'd ask first, just in case there was another nice option I was missing.
A year or two ago, several guys on another forum were recommending a small operation that advertises on ebay, called foxtrotconcealment. I got one of their holsters for an XDS , and it was solid and well made (the whole package later traded).
I just dug through my old purchases to find this guy again, and he's got one for the G19, at $23.50 delivered.
Anyway, no worries, it'll work itself out, thanks for the replies.....

While it doesn't meet one of the criteria I have been carrying either a Glock 23 or Glock 17 in this holster daily for two years now and it still works like new. Adjustable cant and the material doesn't cut into your side.

I've got a galco King tuk that fits my G26, G34, and G41 MOS with tall sights and a RMR. It should have no problem with a G19. They're a bit pricey, but they're sold at stores that have gift cards and coupons. If you're a savvy shopper, you can get them pretty reasonably priced.

I've also got a couple holsters off amazon that work pretty well.
Minimal trigger guard cover. It snaps on and holds on really tight. This one might be too minimal. there's no clips. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013TLA07O

I have the G43 kydex IWB holster from these guys and it works great. Its my EDC holster during the summer. They make one for the G19 as well. https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/14962299011

If you weren't so dead set on polymer or Kydex I would have suggested High Noon Holsters IWB lite duty. They are leather and pretty basic. Around $30. I've had their Hidden Ally and Bare Asset holsters. They aren't reinforced and pretty thin so they will collapse once you draw. But they are pretty comfortable too.
Don Hume makes some more sturdy IWB leather holsters reinforced top, but you're going up to around $40 there.

LOL, I had myself a lil' ol' flashback, so I went digging through a box of stuff, and sure enough, I had an older model Galco King Tuk IWB holster, for the
G17/19 !!
It looks to be great quality, and completely unused. I don't have any clue how I got it. I know I never bought ithe damn thing, so it obviously came as part of some deal I did somewhere along the line.
But, it definitely ain't minimalist, it looks like it'll be a bit more of a production to set up, versus the simple little kydex units I've had my eye on.
It's one of these here....

edit: I double-checked the fit on this holster, and while it will hold a Glock in place, it's obviously sized for something else, most likely a Sig (but at least now I know where it must've come from ! )

I use the Blackhawk ARC holster for my G43 and absolutely love it. It’s rigid, yet pliable. It stays open enough for you to reholster wth one hand and it’s very comfortable.

Thank you for the tip. I have been wanting something nice for my G 36. It is amazing how little support there is for one of the sweetest little guns Glock ever made. I appreciate the info. I like the holster they offer!

Yeah, that operation was very well spoken of by at least a couple guys (on whatever forum I was on), and I was impressed with the fit, solidity, and workmanship of the one I had. I may well go with another from them.
If anyone's interested, this is what we're talking about....https://www.ebay.com/itm/Glock-19-23...8AAOSwqrtWmULD

I like the belt-slide concept, like the (surprisingly reasonable) Safariland 'ba ba booey' just posted above. I actually have a pretty nice one already, made by some small leather company up in Tenn. (IIRC), that I also found on ebay a good while back. It even works great with a 1911 (which I never carry....but it's good to know I can ! ).
Come to think of it, I may just go dig up this belt slide unit, and run with it until I get whatever it is I'm looking for.

Thanks for the continuing support for the thread RR .
I used to have a JIT holster, for an SP101. I really liked it with that pistol, and it's probably what first hipped me to the idea of minimalist holsters.
But, these are great for walking around, but for getting in and out of a vehicle,with a larger (than a Sp101) pistol, maybe not. A Glock rides pretty high in these, and it doesn't take much for it to slide further up.
Also, this wouldn't me much of a difference or improvement over the leather belt slide holster I already have.
I like the kydex/IWB thing because it better secures the pistol in place, and keeps the trigger covered.
