Favorite Carry Holster

This is a discussion on Favorite Carry Holster within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I have come to prefer various holsters from Lou Alessi, the GWH and PCH for IWB, CQC-S for OWB and the Bodyguard shoulder rig....

    I love my two COM IWB holster made for the Kahr 9mm's and CZ-40B respectively by Eric Larsen at HBE Speciality Leather. Awesome stuff.

    I'm also becoming a fan of holstermaker Ron Graham. I purchased one of his Blackbird IWB holsters which is the same basic style as the COM IWB but rides higher. Graham made one up for me with a sweatshield for my Steyr M and S series semiautos. Only $59 delivered!

    Here are photos of the Blackbird from the front....



    ....the rear (note Graham's stamp on the sweatshield)....



    ....and in a comparion photo with my HBE COM holster for my CZ-40B.



    Note that the Blackbird has a sealed bottom. If I get another Blackbird I may ask Mr. G if he can keep the bottom open like Larsen's COM holsters.

    Let's face it, there are a ton of holster maker's out there and it isn't practical to try them all. There are many holster's that I like that I have seen! some in person and most from the net. That said I have determand for me I like a certain type of holster and hadn't found one until I saw the Brommeland Max-Con V IWB. It was everything that I was looking for and didn't really know it until I saw it! if that make's sense. A holster is like your carry weapon! it has to fit you, you have to like it and it has to be functional. The Max-Con does this for me.

    In the summer when wearing short's and all I like the Law Concealment System, the LCS-II work's best for me.

    As far as sholder holsters go! haven't tried them yet and doubt that I will. I like IWB for concealment and OWB for the range, don't like paddle holsters either.

    I agree with Rocky on the SOB holster, seems like a good idea but in reality it has serious issues as mentioned. For me, I've found a fairly low-end production holster that fits the bill perfectly in this Galco OWB and mag pouches. It's contoured to fit the body close, the gun has a solid "click-fit" and is well made.

    HighNoon Slideguard

    I have a holster draw that says "take me, take me" when I open it up. I keep going back to my Highnoon Slideguards (OWB worn strongside at 3-4 O'clock)) for Ruger P97 and Kahr PM9. Great holsters...well made, fit great, good retention and very comfortable.

    We're fortunate to have a lot of options in holsters from many great holster makers...eventually, most folks find the one that's right for them.

    My favorite OWB is a Tucker HF1 with a double mag pouch. High Noon also makes a good holster, but I like the Tucker better. About two week's ago I received my Alessi Bodyguard shoulder holster with pull through snap. I haven't had a shoulder holster before, but read only good stuff about the Alessi. I can already tell it is going to be easy to wear and very comfortable. If anyone is interested in a shoulder holster the Alessi is one to consider.

    That is the Galco "concealable" model and I already have one in a thumbreak for a 1911. But I'm getting another one to go with my new H&K USP 45 that will be open topped. Very comfortable, very smooth, fast draw. That plus my new Blade-Tech OWB holster should take care of me.

    I love Sam Andrews, but he has gotten just a tad to pricey for my blood.

    You are correct EX, it is the "concealable" series. Nice comfortable holster, very well made, and a good value for the money. I CCW as well as IDPA with mine...do you? I also like the quick detach "clip" single mag pouches, although I also have some single and double
    "thru belt" concealable series mag pouches.

    Cool Galco: Best Value IMHO

    I got mine for my 1911 which I no longer carry, but I do at times compete IDPA with it. I plan on getting another of this model for my new H&K USP 45. Last time, I wussed out and got it with a thumb break. This time, strictly open top. I think the "Concealable" is probably one of the prettiest holsters I've ever seen.

    The "J" hook mag holders are all I ever use. Easy on and off and super secure and available for both double and single stack mags.

    My favorite IWB is the McDaniel II from Andrews Leather. I have two with a third on the way and it's the only IWB I'll use.

    My favorite shoulder rig is also from Andrews Leather -- the Monarch.
    This is the best IWB holster I have found... ever! :)
