    I Found a Holster at Walmart? LMAO

    So I've been looking for a retention holster for the winter season here in Indiana. OWB for comfort.
    I spend 32 bucks on a ITAC Roto-Holster. Works great but still prints a little due to design.

    Tonight I'm in Wally World and see this cheap ($12) nylon holster with a basic strap/snap break.
    Comfy in the car...Very low print..Love it!

    Works great for my Glock-27. Sometimes simpler is better I suppose. Yeesh!

    It's an insidious plot by the ChiComms to get unsuspecting Americans to carry in cheap holsters.

    I'm not a big fan of one size fits most nylon holsters,I would bet money that most of the guns falling on the floors in public places are being carried in cheap holsters that if the thumbsnap is inadvertently unsnapped and you bend over deposits your gun in plain view

    You may be right; we'll see. For now, it solves a problem..cheaply.

    As far as the ChiComs..Ya, I know. I was in Wally World. I beg your forgiveness.

    Some pocket holsters are basically a cloth or nylon pouch, and I sure wouldn't spend more than $12 on one. Gun show last weekend had boxes full of them for $10. I passed because I don't carry a pea-shooter.

    There are uses for each. I use a nylon holster, made for my SW442 when I IWB carry with gym shorts. The shorts and undergarments hold the gun tight and it is flexible enough to not print.

    ^ This. Everyone thinks that their cheap/soft holster is a great solution until something catastrophic happens.

    I'll start this response by admitting I have a couple of these holsters myself, so this is more of a 'lessons learned' reply.

    Will it work? Probably.
    Is it a good long term solution? I don't think so.

    Cheap and "something that can put a large hole in a person" don't go well together in my opinion.

    A little spare tire can get your car moving too, doesn't mean it's a good practice in your daily routine, think of it more as a means to an end and get a quality holster if you're going to carry. There are lots of great options out there that won't break the bank, and quite honestly - only rich people can afford cheap holsters, because you'll buy 10 of them before buying one good one.

    Big gun syndrome I see?

    And people, there is a difference between "cheap" and "low-cost". The best holster for someone does not have to cost $100. The best holster for me was the Remora which cost $30. Low cost, but not cheap. Unfortunately, some folks think that you have to break the bank to have the "best" holster.

    Yep, that's why I made my point using the word 'good' and not 'expensive':
    There are lots of great options out there that won't break the bank, and quite honestly - only rich people can afford cheap holsters, because you'll buy 10 of them before buying one good one.
    I would also argue the merit of carrying with a holster that does not physically attach, at least outside the home. To me there's no reason for it, there are lots of good alternatives for the same or slightly more money.

    And yes, I have had a Remora and currently have a Sticky holster.

    I can take my home made leather OWB holster that is wet formed to my Colt 1911 CC turn it upside down and gently shake it and my gun won't fall out,try that with your gun in the holster with the thumb break unsnapped,thumb breaks do get unsnapped inadvertently.I'm not saying inexpensive holsters don't work,I'm saying most of the uncle mike type Nylon Holsters do not have good retention and with the weight of a gun in them can cause problems.I realize that the Nylon IWB holsters offer more retention due to the pressure,but there are Individuals that without thinking in the restroom will unfasten their belt/pants before removing the gun and the holster/gun flips upside down with the gun now on the floor,Sometimes resulting in an AD/ND by either the gun discharging upon hitting the floor,or an attempt to grab the falling gun resulting in the trigger getting pulled.
    We have enough problems with Anti's and I feel that guns dropping on the floor in public places ,sometimes discharging groups us all in the category of "Those guys aren't very safe"
