Can anyone point me towards a list of the top 10 holster manufacturers by sales? In general, where would I find industry statistics on holsters and other tactical gear? Thanks!

Can I vote for myself?!?

But really, there are a lot of good holsters out there, and a lot of really crappy ones too. The topic is pretty broad to boot... Tactical holsters, duty holsters, concealment holsters, "range holsters", the list goes on and on. Ask 10 guys their favorite holster (and/ or maker) and I bet you get at least 8 different answers. Small-time guys and companies like me are popping up all over the place, so it's pretty easy to get affordable custom gear these days. And now in all seriousness, you can add me to your list:D:D:D (see signature if you're interested).

Here is an ever growing, comprehensive list of holster makers from another website:

Holster makers and tactical gear makers don't report sales to any industry association. I doubt that any statistics you found would be anything more than a wild guess based on who knows what.

Unless a company is publicly traded, you probably won't get any sales figures out of them directly. Private companies aren't obligated to report financial information to anyone but the IRS and their creditors.

Are you looking for sales or product quality information? Uncle Mike's is likely in the top 10 of sales but no one would put them up against a Mitch Rosen.

I agree that Uncle Mike's is probably on that list, along with Safariland and Blackhawk. Where they'd be is another question entirely.
