Do you have holsters for all your guns?

Do you own a holster for all your guns? I have a few of my range only guns that I do not. I transport then in a case when I shoot them. Sometimes I catch myself shopping for holsters for them, but wonder why spend the money ?

I have holsters for my carry guns. Cannot justify buying a holster for a range gun preferring to spend the money on ammo.

Short answer, yes. Long answer, some carry guns I have multiple holsters for from trying new ones over the years.
Every sidearm has a holster.

All but one. It is a new revolver, and the holster has been ordered. Lead time is 8 to 10 weeks for completion.

Carry guns only for the most part.

I do. Even for my guns that I don't carry very often such as my S&W 686.

I believe every good handgun deserves an equally good holster, and I do not mind spending the money for them.

Technically, yes. I have a cheap thing for the Beretta, and the holster I use for my Glock 19 Gen 4 obviously accommodates my Glock 23 Gen 4. In reality, I carry the same firearm in the same holster, every day.

Everything except the Mark II Target. Not always very usable holsters, though.

Not even close, but I do have a pile of holsters, even a few for guns I no longer own or have never owned. I've been meaning to get a table at a gunshow to unload some of my less useful doodads, but haven't yet.

Yes, I have a holster for each of my handguns. I have three for my carry gun.

All but 2- I have a Security Six and a RIA 1911 that I am still looking for holsters for. I technically have one for the 1911, but its a nylon shoulder holster, and I had it for another gun, so I don't really count it.

I have holsters for all but 1 of my hand guns. My Colt New Service 7.5" barrel in .38-40 does not have one. I don't even know if some one makes one, but it being an antique and ammo at 35 bucks a box I doubt I will ever shoot it so no need for a holster. Plus with its size it does not make a good carry gun.

Yes - for some more than one . . . but then I make holsters, etc. and do leatherwork for a hobby.

Only for my carry gun. There is no point having a holster if I'm not going to carry that particular gun.

Some of friends have a holster fetish and need to have a holster for every gun, which I don't see the point for.

The only time I need a holster is at the Ranch when I'm hunting. So I only have specific holsters for guns that I carry out there. Though I also have one of those OD Green military holsters, which can carry a bunch of different guns.

I have my own land/shooting range, so I have holsters for all of them if only to carry out to the Pole Barn/range and sit in my woods. I make most of my own holsters and when I get another gun, I make a holster to fit it and my purpose for the gun.

Yes, because I like to shoot all of my handguns ...in tactical drills...drawing from a holster....( double taps, reloads, etc...)...for fun, if nothing else...

so I have holsters for my 1911's, my Sig's and all of my revolvers...

but its not as ridiculous as it sounds ...when one holster ( like a Kramer leather - which I prefer ) ... for a 1911....will fit any one of several 1911's I own in 4" or 5"...( I don't need 7 different holsters ) .....same on my K frame S&W revolvers...( I have about 7 K frame revolvers...in 2 1/2" and 4" barrels ) but I only need one good Kramer holster for a K frame...it will fit all of my guns.

I do have more than one holster for a model of gun ....like 1911's ...because I like to have a Scabbard style for training and an Inside Waist Band for carry..../ some guns, like my double stack Sig 226's I'll never carry because they're just too heavy compared to a 5" 1911 ...so I only have a scabbard style holster for my Sig 226's.

Holsters are not cheap ....but if you buy good ones / chances are you'll keep them a long time / and they'll maintain their value if you decide you want to sell the gun. That's partly why I buy Kramer horsehide leather, with a forward FBI tilt ...over the years, I've figured out it the best holster for my needs.

Just carry guns. I don't spend the money on holsters for pistols that are only for the range, or even for the ones that are for home defense only without being carried.

Same here-even for guns relegated for mostly "range" use.
