I don't have an accurate count of what we have any more, at one time we did a complete holster inventory....it was large.

Alright, kiddies, let's play a around of: Whatchya got?
Here's a poll to see what the most-common holsters are. Think of all the different kinds you've got in the safe, dresser (or wherever). Though there are plenty of other subtle variants to carrying, let's stick with the basic options. Check as many as you have: IWB, OWB, pocket, ankle, shoulder, leather, kydex, hybrid, other.
Photos are absolutely encouraged (), if you're willing to show even a little bit of your collection ... embarrassing though the pile might be.
Let 'er rip.
My first holster was a Blackhawk SERPA for my 1911, which I used until my Galco OWB Avenger arrived, which I had ordered online. Next came a Galco IWB Summer comfort. Then, after I bought a S&W 642, came a Nemesis pocket holster for it by DeSantis, a Galco paddle holster, and a Summer comfort for it. My latest, which arrived yesterday, is a Miami Classic II by Galco for my 1911. They are like rabbits--they just keep multiplying! However, I think I'm done now since I have one of just about every type. Until the next gun joins the inventory. Oh wait! I just remembered another one. My first holster was actually a leather shoulder holster for my S&W Model 29 with an 8 3/8" barrel that I got for Silhouette shooting and that I used for deer hunting a couple of times. Never tried to carry it concealed.

I have a total of four holsters I use, all IWB: heavily-modified one-of-a-kind kydex Shark-Tak I use to carry my DeltaPoint-equipped Glock 17; an off-the-shelf kydex made by X-Concealment for the same gun; and right and left-handed Brommeland Max-Con V's for my Glock 19. I have an OWB coming for the 17 by Brommeland, as well.

My current holster supply is pretty small.
Galco king tuck for glocks, galco concealable for p220, mika pocket holster for j frame.
I have an extreme concealment kydex holster coming for my glock 19 and a custom appendix holster from Ryan Grizzle on order as well.
I'm probably going to get a dale fricke archangel coming soon for glock 17 this week. That should have me covered for a while...at least my wife says so.

My collection is still really small, as is my gun collection. Bought a Don Hume h715 when I got my XDsc9. It is still my transportation holster for throwing it in a bag and such. Since then I have bought a Crossbreed Supertuck and a Blackhawk Serpa 2. I recently bought a S&W 638 and purchased a Blackhawk Pocket Carry holster.
So that's 4 holsters total for 2 guns.
I plan to start messing around with DIY kydex soon, so these numbers should be increasing.
Well beyond two dozen, I stopped counting.
Let's see ... Mitch Rosen, Galco, HBE, K&D, Fist, BladeTech, Garrity, RKBA, Simply Rugged, with multiples of several. All for the S&W 442, Kahr PM9, Kahr P380, Kahr CW9, KelTec P3AT, KelTec PF9, CZ P-01, H&K P2000SK, Browning BDM, Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan. Can't even count the different mag carriers.
I'm sure I am missing something.
Apparently the disease hasn't progressed as far in me as others. I use the same holster everyday: Comp-tac Minotaur MTAC with a single TT Gunleather magazine holder. I also have an Uncle Mikes pocket holster somewhere and a Remora 5Art that I use driving back and forth to work. I plan on adding an OWB holster soon so I can wear some of my pants that can't accomodate the MTAC. I'm leaning towards:

One DeSantis Speed Scabbard, one JIT and the rest (IWB, OWB, shoulder) are customs from Little Bear Holsters.

Too many to list. I probably have on average of 3 per handgun.
Most have an OWB option, one mistake, and a IWB config. I've moved away from kydex/hybrids to all leather.

At the moment, I have 7 on hand: Blade-Tech UCH for my Glock 26, DeSantis Tuck This II, also for the Glock, Uncle Mike's pocket holster. Tagua Gunleather (OWB), Glock Sport Combat holster, and a Fobus paddle holster. I'm currently waiting on my new CrossBreed Quick-Clip to arrive. May eventually get a CrossBreed SuperTuck if I like the Quick-Clip.

Ive got one each. IWB, OWB and a homemade pocket holster. It was actually a pocket case for an old cellphone. Cut a slit in the bottom of it and it works well for a few pocket rockets.
I'm in the process of deciding on holsters for various uses & the info I've received on this site is invaluable.
I want to start with one each OWB, IWB & shoulder. That should cover about most contingencies that I'll encounter. Of course I also suspect that I'll keep looking for the "right" one & when I get a bigger collection of handguns I'll need more & different types. To me concealment is the key & I'll keep working toward the one that conceals the best. There again the info that I've found here on that subject is great.

I have IWB and OWB. Leather, and Kydex. Have to sa7y, my favorite is my Bianchi CarryLoks, due to the retention factor.
