How to Choose the Best Taurus GX4 Holster?

With its lightweight, slimline design, the Taurus GX4 has become a popular concealed carry pistol. Maximizing the benefits of the GX4 requires selecting a CCW holster optimized for comfort, concealability, and accessibility during daily wear.

  1. Holster type. Determine whether you prefer an inside the waistband (IWB), outside-the-waistband (OWB), or appendix carry holster.
  2. Retention. Look for adjustable retention to keep the GX4 securely holstered while allowing a smooth, quick draw.
  3. Comfort. Prioritize padding, moisture-wicking materials, and ergonomic design for all-day carry comfort. Our memory foam holster pads create a comfortable cushion to prevent hard holsters from digging into your body.
  4. Accessibility. Opt for a holster with adjustable cant and smooth draw stroke for fast, easy access to your GX4.
  5. Concealment. Minimize printing through features like tuckable design and concealed carry clips.
  6. Material quality. Choose durable, high-performing materials like KYDEX or leather to properly protect your firearm.
  7. Versatility. If you have multiple carry positions, select an adjustable holster that can adapt as needed.

What is the Best Taurus GX4 Holster For Guns With a Light?

Finding a holster for a Taurus GX4 outfitted with a light can feel overwhelming given the specific fit required. We cut through the noise to recommend two holsters purpose-built for secure, comfortable carry of a light-bearing GX4

  1. The Blackpoint Tactical Leather Wing Light Mounted Holster is specifically designed for carrying a Taurus GX4 with a Streamlight TLR-6 69288 light mounted accessory. It offers a unique design that eliminates "hot spots" on the hip, providing comfort during extended periods of wear. The holster features leather "wings" that naturally curve with the body, resulting in a slimmer and more comfortable fit. The side-mounted belt attachment points reduce the overall thickness of the platform, allowing the gun to ride as close to the body as possible for optimal concealment.
  2. The Comp-Tac DCH Taurus Branded Holster GX4/GX4XL + TLR-6 Light Bearing RH is a versatile holster offering both inside-the-waistband (IWB) and outside-the-waistband (OWB) options. It comes with an easy-on, easy-off Infidel Clip for IWB wear and a paddle attachment for OWB wear. The paddle is adjustable for straight/speed cant or 15 FBI cant, providing easy concealment and a comfortable draw. The KYDEX body is custom-molded for a precise fit, while the high-quality KYDEX material ensures a smooth and fast draw. The holster is compatible with red-dot optics and co-witnessing sights, and it features two retention adjustment screws for customizable firearm retention. 

What are the Best Taurus GX4 Accessories?

The Taurus GX4 has many accessory options to enhance the functionality of this popular concealed carry pistol. Here are some top accessories to consider:

  • Magazine carriers (also called mag carriers) are essential for securely carrying extra magazines on your belt. They provide easy access to spare mags for fast reloads while shooting or training.
  • Extended magazines provide higher ammo capacity without increasing the pistol's compact size—great for more trigger time at the range or increased readiness for self-defense.
  • Night sights improve aim in low-light settings. Tritium night sights make the sights visible even in dark conditions.
  • Lasers like the Crimson Trace LG-422 attach to the trigger guard and project a dot on your target, improving shooting accuracy.
  • Reliable KYDEX or leather holsters provide secure concealed carry and quick draw access.
