I recently purchased the Glock G40 in 10MM - waiting on it to ship to me. I am looking for an OWB holster. I will add the Burris Fast Fire III optic to it so I need to take that into account. Anyone currently have this model and carry in the field and prefer a certain kind of holster?
There are a few online, but the selection seems to be limited.

You may have to go custom once you add the optic to it.

I have the Glock G20, G29, G21, and G40. All will fit in the same 2 holsters I use. The frame is the same, just the barrel length is different. My Cross Breed IWB holster mold comes right up to the base of the optic mount on the G40, and could easily be made to fit the G40 frame. If you find a holster you want, I'm sure the mfg could tell you if it will fit in there with the optic or not. It depends on what type of holster you go with. What are you looking at?

I would like an outside the waistband holster because this will be my hunting sidearm and not my daily carrier.
As far as material goes, I prefer leather, but am open to the other materials.

The leather holsters generally come up higher on the firearm, so you would want to find this out. You would have to check with the mfg to know. They should know.

Contact East and get him to build you exactly what you want. FFR holsters. No leather, but quality holster.

I didn't have a G40 but I had a FNP-45 tac w/ RMR and I had a Bladetech holster made for it and it was pretty nice. I also really like Stealth Gear USA holsters although I have not tried one of their OWB models but I'm sure it would be just as nice as the IWB stuff.

I use a repro M3 Tanker rig and it is perfect for field carry. I have the G40 with a Vortex Venom and the tanker is easy on, easy off and super comfortable for a $30 rig.

Yes I did. I have other holsters from them. They currently do not make them for the G40
