    I'm A Believer! N82 Tactical Holsters

    I received my Second N82 Tactical holster over the weekend. NOT for a second gun, but because I sent my first one back!

    My first N82 hoslter was their newer "professional". Personally, I found it a bit bulky, the clip would unexpectedly rotate, and it was just too much holster for my needs. N82 offered great customer service and a no-hastle return of my Professional.

    Weeks later, I decided to try the N82 "Original" holster. Sure am glad I decided to give N82 a second chance. Now, I'm a N82 Believer! The Original is much thinner than the Professional and I find it to be much more comfortable. The holster needs to be removed in order to reholster, but I'm not going to be drawing my gun unless I'm shooting somebody anyway, so reholstering is not a big deal. For competition shooting I wear an OWB holster, not my everyday IWB.

    Long-story-short, if at first you're not happy with your N82 holster, try, try again.

    I have the Original N82 for my Sp101 revolver, and carry it AIWB. It is comfortable to wear all day. My only problem with it is it allows the gun to ride too low below the belt line and the padding goes up to the top of the grip, therefore making it harder to draw.

    Interesting. I actually find the Original rides better and is easier to draw than any of my other IWB holsters.

    I find there's way too much fabric above the gun, makes it hard to get a good grip.

    Comfy though.

    Unfortunately they don't seem to care about us lefties, so I can't say anything about the 'pro' series.

    You may want to consider buying both, than returning the one you don't want. Good luck.

    I have a N82 for my .... now I forget why I bought it. Until you guys brought it up, I forgot I even have it! I wonder where it is? Obviously I am unimpressed with their product, and have since replaced it with another holster. My issue had to do with being unable to quickly get a shooting grip and the inability to reholster.

    I have an M&P shield and was considering their professional. Does anyone use this holster with that gun? If so do you like it?

    Found it to be just a little too bulky and the clip never stayed in one place. Returned it for the Original. Very happy.

    Is it true that you have to remove the entire holster to re-holster the gun with the original? Do you think the tuckable version is the same as the original with a bit of extra space to tuck in a shirt?

    Your gun can be safely reholstered with the Original without taking the holster off. However, why would you be drawing your gun anyway, requiring reholstering? Once holstered, my gun stays put.

    Reholstering is required for practicing. Not to mention is you do have to pull your weapon and shoot someone you don't really want to be standing there with gun pulled when cops show up,how do they know that you are the "good" guy.
    I use the professional from n82, yes it is a bit bulkier but I am able to practice with it which to me is one of the most important things we all should be doing if you carry your weapon for self defense.

    I use it with my 9mm Shield. Only issue I have it that it takes some practice to get used to drawing it with the positive retention built in, but I also like not having to worry about it coming out or someone else pulling it out. I'm a big guy and have plenty of my own bulk, so that's not an issue with me
