Went to a gunshow 2 weeks ago not looking for anything specific, but had a bit of cash in my wallet. I'd gotten about halfway thru the show without spending anything when I saw a new in the box G2C on a dealer's table for an almost unbelieveable price. Not really "needing" one I passed on by. Even passed it on my second go round of the show - but I couldn't put that price out of my mind.
Finally went back to the table and talked to the dealer. He's a reputable dealer and goes to all the local shows, but I still had to ask how he could price it so low. Turns out he is retired from a career in banking and has connections to buy occasional bank foreclosure merchandise. So I became the proud owner (or at least the owner!) of a G2C! Weather's been so bad I've only run a few magazines of hardball thru it so far, but no problems at all.
The only problem seems to be holsters, which really surprised me because they've sold truckloads of these things the last few years. I went on Midway's site, used the holster finder and came up with a grand total of 9 holsters for it - all besides one are more or less cheap holsters of the type you try once and throw in the big holster box never to be used again.
After more research it appears there are a lot of independent one man operations making (mostly kydex) holsters for it, but almost nothing from the major holster makers. After doing more research it looks like some of the leather holsters made for the Glock 26 may be a decent fit. I ordered one from Midway and we'll see how it works out when it gets here next week.
Anyone else have any suggestions for a leather open top OWB to fit it without spending big bucks for custom made?
