so i'm sitting around one day going though my holster drawer and got to thinking. not one of my holsters is from the same company. each holster has a different brand name. question is, do you pretty much stick with one company or do you pick a company for different types of ccw. just curoius.

FIST tends to get the bulk of my business. I just caught a friend pocket-carrying an unholstered Glock the other day, and I have one on order for him as well.
Although I also have a comp-tac mtac, a superb piece of craftsmanship from Rocky at Pure Custom, as well as some scrub Don Humes, and a box full of just pure crap.

My three holsters are all different manufacturers. I think each one has their finer points for my purposes.

I suppose it all depends on how many holsters you own. If you only own a few, most likely they are from different makers. Trial and error and all that.
I imagine that many of us who own a large number of guns (with holsters for each) have probably settled on one or two makers that work best for that person's individual needs/requirements.
Of course, there are always the butterflies that just have to have one of EVERYTHING!

I have one from Bianchi, one from Hunter, one from Uncle Mike, and several I made over the last 3 years.

I have a Kramer, a few of my own, and several Alessi holsters. Have a couple of plastic holsters that I bought to see me through until the maker holsters showed up. Still waiting on the CQC-S for the M&P. Be nice to carry 15 rounds of 357 SIG.

I have one hybrid for each of my three carry choices and either a leather IWB are OWB holster for all but my 45. My wife has 5-6 assorted holsters for her ONE EDC. As for the companies they are very sorted Crossbreed, com-tac, Galco and five-shot. while I hate to admit it i do have a couple of no-name OWB holsters also that were ordered off of EBAY, mainly used for range and loaner gear.

I've got the usual drawerful of stuff, IWB's, OWB's, belly bands, concealment T-shirts, and crossdraws. Through it all, the most comfortable for me is an OWB with a forward cant worn at 4 o'clock. It conceals with a cover shirt or jacket and it's comfortable enough to wear all day without giving me fits.

Pure Kustom, Milt Sparks and Occidental Leather are my go to holsters. I own more than 1 product from each manufacturer b/c of their outstanding quality and customer service.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

Like most of you gentlemen I have a few stuck in my drawer, some that work and some that are junk. I recently started carrying a Kimber Ultra Raptor and I am having difficulty finding a good ISW or OSW rig. This Kimber Ultras are butt end heavy and want to lay away from the body, would love some recomendations on this one.
