    I'm going broke!!

    Is it just me, or do most people spend about as much on holsters as they do on the pistol they're trying to holster??
    I dont know what my problem is but I've purchased a Kholster, Don Hume, and a OWB Blackhawk for a Glock 26 thats barely a week old!

    The problem is you can't see it until you get it. If there were a local store where you could walk in and try out holsters, like shoes, you would have far fewer of them.

    And if you would like to buy one or two of mine, as Jimmy Durante once said, "I have a million of them."

    Thats absolutely correct. I spend hours online reading reviews and crossing my fingers while they're on the way. Maybe you and I should open up a strictly holster store and make our fortune..... mmmmm....

    Appreciate the offer, and if my many "on the way" holsters don't work out, I'll P.M you.

    Try being a southpaw ... nobody carries much of anything for us. I have to do all my purchasing online. Sure I might find a holster for a right handed user and see if it fits the gun, but it's not the same when trying the draw, etc. At least not to me.

    Like i say for fishing ... can't have too many flies tied; can't have too many holsters :)

    Fortunately, I've kept my holster expenses pretty low. I caught wind of the Remora holsters on this forum, and they are great. $35 for one with a sweat shield is just the ticket. That kept my holster expenses low, and they work like a charm.

    If it is IWB, just get a crossbreed supertuck and be done with it. I have 2 holsters for each carry gun. A crossbreed and an uncle mikes. Fills every need I have yet had. Then you can worry about the gun on the next statement instead of a bunch of kydex or leather that fill drawers.

    I've got a CBST for my beretta. Your are right. They are very good. I just thought that I'd give Kholster a try with my Glock since they are half the cost and take half the time to get here. Then I Thought that I'd need a OWB then an easy to attach IWB and before I'd realized it, I'd ordered all three.
    I'll probably regret all of them and end up with the Supertuck after all.

    I believe some people think/believe the nonsense/statements from others, "This holster is like a dream, I can't even tell its there."

    Then they get it, put it on, and cry foul!
    People are too fussy, have too high an expectation of what a holster will feel like while wearing it, and too often are trying to wear it with the wrong clothing/belt, and in the wrong circumstances.

    "Awe crap, you mean I can't wear it with a speedo?" mentallity.

    Folks need to get realistic in your understanding of holsters.

    I have two holsters for my XD, both with different jobs. Maybe I'm in the minority then

    I do think it is ridiculous that most stores only sell a few types of holsters. De Santis, Galco, Fobus and Uncle Mike's. The first two are fine, but the other two...

    I have a Beretta PX4 Storm SC, and ordered the Crossbreed Supertuck as my first holster.
    It works great.....I wore it twelve hours yesterday, and the same amount of time last week with no problems.

    Well, thankfully i don't buy into that mentality at all. I believe that holsters CAN be extremely comfortable and a pleasure to wear. Thats why they sell a magnitude of different kinds. Maybe if we were back 50 or 60 years ago, that may have been true. But with today's lighter pistols and Kydex/leather one's like the Supertuck for instance, its not unreasonable to expect a level of comfort.
