    paddle holster

    I am looking for a paddle holster for my Taurus 24/7 compact .45. I want something that rides close and I can conceal under a jacket or polo shirt. I called comp-tac and apparently there holster won't fit because my gun is the compact, any insight will be appreciated.

    Well a Paddle holster of any type will not ride nearly as close as you thik it should. They are a trade off for conveninece. I have several. I am a plainclothes quasi LEO and the Padle is perfect for me, for that purpose. The best one availaible I have found is Kramer MSP, or the Galco CCP. Look there.

    nick315,

    I agree the paddle is easy on and off but will not conceal that well. Why don't you try one of the CQC/s type of holsters. I have several from Lou Alessi. They ride close and tight. Love mine. You might want to contact Rocky @ Pure Kustoms. A nice guy and does a great job with leather. Also, Ray at Lobo Leather has one.

    Good luck.

    I have a blackhawk serpa holster but it does not ride close at all. My only issue why I preferred a paddle was that you where not limited to its position on the body belt loops.

    Comp-Tac paddles are my favorites. They carry better for me than most others I've tried. I'm a big fan of paddle holsters but they aren't all equal. Some are great, some are terrible. In leather, Kramer's MSP is hard to beat.

    Kramer. Comfortable leather paddle, tough as nails horsehide, rides tight for concealment.

    I bought this for my Glock-36. Rides tightly against the body...expensive, but well worth it!

    i wanted a comptac paddle, however, when i called they said they do not fit the taurus 24/7 compact only the full size 24/7. i thought the only difference was barrel length. i really want a kydex holster and if not paddle and owb.

    While I'm not a huge fan of the Fobus holsters, I use their paddle types around the house because they're light (= comfortable). For a cheap, probably "bidegradable" holster, the Fobus holds the gun butt in tight to the beltline remarkably well compared to some pricey leather models from Galco and DeSantis. I have Fobus paddles for a PT111, CW9 and G23... all of which are compact to smallish.

    The worst feature of the Fobus is that they won't withstand a knowledgeable gun-grab, because the paddle (or belt loops) are riveted to the holster and can tear the plastic under heavy torque. But if your needs are modest, or you're in a low-threat environment (e.g., just want the gun on your person around the house), for $25 a throw you can't beat 'em.

    Dittos! While lots of people hate Fobus I think they are decent holsters for the money. I have 3 of them and they do hold the gun butt in tight. I wear my G27 in one sometimes with a T-shirt and shorts, no problem. I also have one for my SP101, but the Fobus like to eat up the finish on the gun so I dont wear it much. But for my Glocks they work great. I also have a Serpa that sucks. Its hard to get on and off and hangs the gun way off my belt.

    The "ECP" (Extreme Cant Paddle) from rmholsters.com will conceal as well as any belt holster that I have ever tried. However, it is made for a limited selection of pistols so you might need to talk to the owner to see if he can fit yours. BTW, it is kydex; I know that some people insist on leather.
