    Need a little help.

    I have custom holster made by Ryan Grizzle which is great for every day activities, but I like to go fishing and hiking. As everyone knows leather and water aren't the best of friends. I need a holster that if I fall in the lake or creek like a big dummy it wont hurt the holster just my pride. It can be iwb or owb and not cost a fortune. Thank in advance.

    Any holster made of kydex but because you think you might "slip and fall in the water" make sure it has a safety release like a Phobus or BlackHawk. JMO!

    Kydex holster - by any number of makers.

    I prefer Crown Holsters for inexpensive ($50 range) and Raven Concealment for a little higher quality and greater variety ($90 range).

    I use a Blackhawk Serpa open carry with my Glock 17 when I am at the lake. It is secure, water won't hurt the kydex, and it is relatively inexpensive.

    I hope your gun doesn't get wet.

    Damn, I knew I shouldn't have been swimming while carrying:)

    I only carry when I am fishing from the dock, walking around the property or hanging out on the dock or porch. Boating, watercraft and swimming with my son are done sans gun. I suppose it is possible I could fall in while carrying at some point, but it hasn't happened yet...

    Anything kydex. And, don't fall in. Also, an inexpensive, non custom made leather holster would be ok getting wet. A lot of people soak them to break them in. If wet, just don't stretch it out, let it dry naturally.

    I was going to suggest kydex-tech before I saw what your gun was, not sure about that one but as mentioned, anything kydex should fit your need.

    I was cleaning out my basement and I found a serpa 1911 holster that I think I only used once. I will send you a PM.
