what's your go to holster for your go to gun and why?

Is it leather for concealment or kydex for IDPA. Whats the "best" that you've used.

Before you get bent out of shape and say "best holster for what new guy" relax... tell me what you think is the best for what you use it for.

I just use a blackhawk locking holster..CQC or something or another..didn't know too much about it when I bought it.

The only time I conceal, is when I'm wearing a jacket in the winter time :) other than that, it's always open carry

Aw yes... another open carrier. I work in missouri, which is an open carry state, and live in Ark, which is not. I must admit that since I carry every day I have "forgetten" and pumped gas armed in Ark. I did get some looks, but the average folk assume that I'm LE (which I'd never claim if asked) and go on. I don't make it a habit though.

My choice is too the CQC, Love the level II security with an open top. I never use it for concealment though, as I'm too scrawny to hide it under my jacket. I have an Old Dillion leather belt slide (made by Alessi ? in the late 90's) that's my go to for coverin' the well worn G-lock 17 that travels with me daily.

This is a holster I picked up awhile back from makarov.com and it's exceptionally well made. Leather IWB with thumb break. I use it for my Browning BDA .380

Blade Tech kydex IWB. Milt Sparks VMII isnt bad if you just have to have leather.

I have the Milt Sparks VM2HS and love it. Ordered another for a different gun. Most comfortable carry that I have found for me.

I have two favorites, they are very similar to each other, both are OWB and hold H&K guns. A Galco Concealable holds my P2000SK. I like it because it is a perfect, snug fit that holds close to the body, yet is a smooth, quick, easy draw. quality is very good. My P7 PSP rides in a KD Holster, Eagle defender. I like it for the same reasons. Both of these holsters are reasonably priced at about $70 and $60 respectively and both ride on a Galco COP belt.

Until I can afford a really good rig, this rides with me my off days, when I carry concealed. It works very well, but I would like snap loops instead of the clip.


Going to and from work, open carry in uniform, an old HBE Specialty Leatherworks Belt Holster. Older pic, taken with wifes' now dearly departed PCR, with Hakan Pek grips. Still have the grips somewhere...

Check out Tucker.


I've been using the Texas Heritage for years now and still love it.
