The Minotaur - Half Breed IWB


Product Description

**THIS IS A CUSTOM PRODUCT and is subject to a 20-30 day lead time, which is listed on our homepage** 




In Greek mythology, The Minotaur was a powerful, monstrous creature with the head of a bull on the body of a man.

The Minotaur is our Half-Breed Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster, and is so named because it is part handgun holster, part single magazine carrier.


  • The Minotaur is designed to be worn in the appendix position (12-2 o'clock), but we've found that it performs best right at the 12 o'clock position - the holster hooks onto your belt and is worn inside your pants. When carrying in the 12 o'clock position, it is sometimes helpful to offset your belt buckle by about an inch to either the right or left side; this gives the holster enough room to hook onto your belt without interfering with the belt buckle.
  • Depending on your body type, this holster is a good option for carrying concealed in the appendix position.

About This Holster

The Minotaur is molded to fit a specific handgun model and matching single magazine; your handgun will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. This holster does not accommodate any weapon-mounted lights, such as the TLR1 or Inforce APL. If you are running a light on your gun, you’ll want to check out the light-bearing version of The Minotaur, The Centaur.

HELPFUL TIP: Because of its large design, The Minotaur is definitely not the holster for everyone. A large number of customers swear by it, but others find that it can feel a bit bulky in your waistline, depending on your body type, the size of the gun you're carrying, and whether or not you're running extended base plates on your magazines. It may be wise to read this blog post before ordering The Minotaur, as we do have a no-cancellation/no-return policy.

The Minotaur comes with two of our Appendix Clips, which hook onto your belt. The clips are available in two different sizes: 1.5", which most belts will fit through, or 1.75". The clips also come with multiple predrilled holes, which allows for adjustable ride height and adjustable cant. You choose which size Appendix Clips you prefer during checkout.  If you're not sure which size you need, you can always head over to our Extra Hardware section to purchase larger Appendix Clips. This style of clip also allows the customer to tuck their shirt in.

The holster comes with adjustable retention, which allows the customer to select a tighter or looser fit on both their gun and spare magazine. It is controlled by three screws that adjust the retention of the handgun and the magazine separately - the two screws that hold into place the appendix clip near the trigger guard will adjust the handgun retention. The screw at the top of the holster in between the gun and the magazine will adjust the magazine retention. 

The spare magazine carrier is molded with the bullets facing the gun.

This holster is made from one piece of Kydex, strategically molded around the gun and spare magazine, and fastened together with quality hardware. All of the hardware comes with a lifetime guarantee, and if at any time it breaks or is lost, we will replace it at no cost to the customer.

The holster can be customized in your choice of 33 different colors or patterns. Click here to view color options.

  1. Literal Perfection!

    Posted by Carston Shields on 10th Apr 2017

    A part of me was worried that at least something would have been wrong with my order; but I have probably never been as happy with an online purchase as I am with this one! Very good quality, incredible retention, so much lighter than I ever expected, and so much more comfortable that I had ever expected! Will most definitely be shopping with Alpha Concealment again!

  2. Amazing product

    Amazing company customer service and the holster is like it isn't even there.

  3. great holster

    Posted by Todd Springer on 3rd Mar 2017

    The holster I ordered was for a half breed appendix for a full size 1911. Yes that may seem a little much, and in some instances it is. For this particular application you can't wear it with just a t-shirt. But the holster fits very close to the body and secures well, it conceals very well under a light hoodie. The holstster has really refined edges that don't cut or jab at you. Magazine and firearm are very snugg and secure with an audible click when holstering. The lead time was long. But given the fact that I wanted a holster that could support the weight of full size handgun, it was worth the wait. Customer service was great, I made an error on the initial order, called the next day and they corrected it for me no questions asked. Great product.

  4. Solid holster

    Posted by Colin on 2nd Mar 2017

    This thing looks great in carbon fiber, and the quality is top notch. Lead time was about on par with other companies.

  6. Very comfortable appendix holster!

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Dec 2016

    Coming from an Incog holster, this holster by far is my favorite! The moment i put it on the feeling of it felt heavenly! So comfortable like its not even there! My draw / reloads is smoother and faster. Amazing what a good holster can do to help increase your ability to defend yourself or loved ones! Again, amazing product! Very pleased with my purchase! Thank you and God bless!

  7. solid setup

    Posted by Dan on 1st Dec 2016

    Got the holster for my Glock 19 and fits perfect. The clips are pretty solid and is pretty comfortable. Looks good feels good what else could you want. Worth the money.

  8. super uncomfortable

    Posted by Skyler Hamilton on 23rd Nov 2016

    I bought this on recommendation and I was told that it would be very comfortable to wear. Then I had to wait forever to get it. I finally got it after 42 days and it was super uncomfortable to wear and I just hate it. 8 like the design of it but to wear is a no go.

  9. Great Holster!

    Posted by Roman on 22nd Nov 2016

    5-star holster!

  10. best appendix carry option!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Oct 2016

    If you are looking to carry appendix, this is the best option. There's a lot of choices out there, and a lot are more expensive and less comfortable. Alpha concealment it what I choose to put on everyday!!
