    Starter Holster?

    So I've been taking you guy's advice and I'm probably going to eventually get a HBE holster but I'm going to need something to use to help me get a feel for what I want and to carry my weapon in for the next 3-5 months. What's a good intermediate level holster that I could get at a local store or online?

    I'm no expert on holsters by any means but if you already think you know what holster you will be getting why are you looking for something else? Is the holster you planning to get on 3 to 5 month backorder? If not, I would get that holster and use that as a starting point.

    It is custom and would take 3-5 months(and around $100) to make. I hve no problem either waiting that long or paying that much...just would like to try some stuff out first.

    Check with Sam, about a McDanial II and then you'll have two great holsters. http://www.andrewsleather.com/

    I like Comp-Tac. Do you prefer leather or kydex? If leather there are several mass produced brands out there. Others will know better. I'm ordering an In-cognito Deluxe from Mark Garrity.

    +1 on the Galco. I love the "Concealable" model. I have several.

    Don Hume H721 OT, I carry my Sig P226 in one every day, I prefer it to the Galco models.

    I have one of these holsters (open top) for my Sig P245 and it's a very comfortable carry.

    You might look at one of Galco or DeSantis' 3-slot pancake holsters. They allow you to choose a vertical or a canted carry position. Ordinarily, I think the extra belt slot is awful (extra leather), but if you're trying to decide on a holster, I think the choice of carry positions will help you decide better for your high-end holster.

    But any of the standard 2-slot pancake rigs work well...most are forward (FBI) cant. Just browse Galco, Desantis, Bianchi, etc., and choose one that looks good for you. Or, better, go see what the local gun stores and cop shops have in stock and try one or two out.

    +1 on that holster, my favorite. He has some standard pistol models more or less in stock and ready for delivery after a little work. Or at least he did last time I talked to him!

    Usually within three weeks, most of the time sooner. Give him a call and he will usually be pretty darn close to when he says.
