We’ve put some good info below to help you find the right Taurus G2c Holster for you. Everyone is built and dresses a little differently. So you’ll need to choose the right holster for your needs. Whether you’re looking for a Taurus G2c OWB Holster or a slick AIWB Rig we’ll give you the info you need to find the right one.
The Taurus G2c has been around for quite some time. Taurus has since introduced the G3c, an updated version. The bad news is they changed enough of the exterior that holsters are not cross-compatible in most cases. Using CAD technology we’ve designed our holsters so both guns will fit perfectly with complete cross-compatibility. They’ll also fit the longer G3 Holsters.
If you’re purchasing a holster other than a Harry’s Holster you’ll want to make sure to email the company to confirm their G3c holster will fit a G2c or the other way around. The slightest difference in a gun can make a big difference in fit if the mold isn’t designed properly.
Taurus G2c Concealed Holster
There are multiple ways to conceal a gun. The most important thing is determining the position you want to carry your Taurus G2c Concealed Holster. First, you’ll want to decide if you want to carry IWB or OWB. Both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. IWB is going to be the most concealable for the majority of people. There are definitely situations where OWB makes more sense as well.
Taurus G2c IWB Holster
A great thing about IWB is the gun naturally sits closer to your body. This means it’ll make it easier on your body to carry the weight. The closer it is to your body the less leverage gravity has to make it seem heavier. When carrying IWB you’ll do it at one of two areas. Either AIWB (Appendix) or Strong-Side (On the Hip/Behind The Hip). You might see people suggest small of the back or cross draw but both of those have fatal flaws so I would not suggest carrying in either of those positions.
The issue with small of the back is the pressure it can place on your spine. Especially from a long term perspective. With cross draw the gun isn’t shaped to be carried that way as the muzzle will poke directly into your leg. A lot of people love old westerns(myself included) and see cross draw utilized a lot. Those holsters were for revolvers with thin barrels and carried OWB. The shape of modern firearms makes it a more difficult position to carry. The draw stroke is also slower than appendix or strong side carry.
No matter what position you’re carrying having a well-designed holster devoid of sharp edges is very important. The small pointy edge can cause a hot spot that will lead to pain. That’s one of the great things about our Singleton holster. We tested the Singleton G2c/G3c prototype non-polished edges straight off our CNC Router. The raw edges of the trimmed Kydex are incredibly sharp before polishing. So if the shape of the holster is smooth enough to be carried without polishing the edges it’ll likely be comfortable for most people.
Appendix carry typing means in front of the hip to the centerline of your stomach. This position is very concealable for most people and is also easier on the back. A lot of people are concerned about comfort when sitting down. For some people, this is an issue but for most, it isn’t. There is a natural pocket in that area of the body and for most of us, it can be very comfortable to carry in that pocket. As I mentioned earlier having the weight of the gun forward of the hips is a big advantage. At the end of the day we’re carrying to protect so we should try to protect our long-term health as well.
Another thing you might want to consider is using a longer holster. This might seem counterintuitive but if you’re carrying with a high ride height more of the gun will sit above the belt. That means more weight higher up giving gravity an easier way to pull the gun out from the body. A longer holster like our Taurus G3 Holster will help counter that. That tip out with a shorter holster also focuses pressure between the holster and the body. A longer holster helps spread out that pressure.
But for it to be concealable it has to be set up the right way. For that, you’ll need the right accessories. I suggest a Wing/Claw and a Wedge. Both of these will aid in concealment.
A wedge is just a foam or rubber pad placed between the Taurus G2c Concealed Holster and your body. It will help counteract the tipping we were talking about earlier. If you develop a hot spot you can place a wedge in that position or near it. That will alleviate the hot spot. This makes a huge difference in comfort as well as concealment. If you have a holster that’s not working for you this one accessory might make the difference.
Printing is a major issue at the appendix unless you find a way to tuck the grip in close to the body. A claw or wing is the best way to accomplish it. They use the belt to apply leverage to the Taurus G2c IWB Holster canting the grip in towards the body. It also changes the angle your hand meets the grip making your draw stroke more natural as well.
This position cover 3-5 o’clock for a right-handed carrier or 9-7 if you’re left-handed. Carrying on the hip at 3 or 9 isn’t the most comfortable position as the G2c Holster will be sitting right on your hip bone with nothing to protect it. Move the holster back just a little bit makes a huge difference.
The most important feature for strong-side concealment is adjustable cant. We all have different body builds and making sure the grip of the gun is angled so it doesn’t print is very important. Claws and wedges aren’t as effective at this position but cant works wonders. Having 15-30 degrees is advisable for a gun the size of the G2c. This is probably the most important aspect of a Taurus G2c IWB Holster.
Taurus G2c Holster With Mag Pouch
At this time we don’t have a Taurus G2c Holster With Mag Pouch. It’s something we’re considering but it’s a very expensive product to produce right and we’re not sure the demand will justify the R&D costs.
Taurus G2c Holster OWB
If you want to conceal your G2c with an OWB holster then it needs to sit close to the body. The Taurus has a small outline but it’s fairly thick for its size and unless you’re wearing a baggy shirt or jacket it can be hard to conceal. When you’re shopping for an OWB Concealment Holster you want to make sure it has adjustable cant. Adjustable cant is a rare feature on an OWB concealment holster. Which is sad considering it’s very important.
When you’re carrying OWB you need every advantage for concealment. Having the ability to adjust the cant of the holster means you can optimize the grip angle for your body type. This is a major advantage for concealment for your Taurus G2c Holster OWB.
Taurus G2c Pocket Holster
For most users, the G2c is going to be much to large for a pocket gun. It’s also quite heavy for pocket carry weighing almost 27 ounces. I would suggest going with a smaller lighter options like the Glock 42, Ruger LCP/LPC 2, Sig P365 or the Springfield Hellcat. We are working on an IWB Holster that can be turned in a Taurus G2c Pocket Holster.
This holster works great for IWB carry while still giving you the ability to try pocket carry.
