    How many holsters do you have in your holster drawer?

    Everyone here seems to have to go through a multitude of holsters to find the one that works for them. We all have a bunch of holsters in our holster drawer just collecting dust.

    So the question is, how many holsters do you have in your holster drawer just collecting dust?

    I voted 6-9 and actually have 8, but, I have 2 coming next week from K&D so that will put me at 10 . Its amazing how many holsters it takes to actually find "the one" that is your go to EDC holster. Oh well.

    Had to put 10+, but since I have over 20 handguns I don't guess that is too bad. Different holsters for different guns and situations.

    I need to open up a holster store to get rid of some of these things.

    A drawer?? There isn't a drawer big enough.

    I have 15 holsters for IWB and they all fit 5" 1911's. (long story) They are leather, suede out, smooth in, with SS belt clip.

    So........where is the classifieds anyway?

    I have 3-5 useless holsters...closer to three. I had more, but just got rid of 4x that many.
    Why keep what I don't need?
    I have enough trouble keeping track of the 2 dozen+ that I do have/use.
    I bought myself a hanging shoe tree and put individual gun holsters in each compartment...this helps a lot with organization.

    I have six; 2 for my single action revolvers for cowboy action type shooting. 1 sholder holster for ocasions I am unable to carry on my waist. 1 Hip holster for my Ruger super blackhawk while hunting. 1 in the waistband for 5 inch 1911 and 1 in the waistband for compact 1911. I do not have any holsters that I do not use at sometime. When I buy a holster I know what I want and need, so I don't have to keep buying other holsters. Should a holster get worn out it gets replaced with another the same or similar. I don't keep worn out holsters, by taking good care of my holsters they last nearly forever.

    I've got way over 20 I'm sure. Probably closer to 30. But then, I've got 15 handguns.

    Thinking about it, I do at least have one for each handgun. Not bad I think.... of course, I only regularly carry two or three in rotation. But the others (most anyway) have been carried regularly at one time or another over the years.....

    ETA: BTW, I've got one coming this month from Milt Sparks (an Axiom for a 5" 1911).... and another from MS next month (a Summer Special 2 for a 1911). Doing a quick count, I think that may put me over 30.... I need to get them organized, I like RetSupt99's idea. They're now divided among a few drawers and a storage unit .

    I can start a store. I can remember at point in time last year I had 10+ holster orders pending with different makers. Just recently I finally thought I was done. I wound up placing another 4 orders this past month. It's definitely an addiction.

    I have two custom ones for my Glock 36, I have a generic Nylon OWB for my Taurus and Witness, and I have a generic IWB for when I need to deep conceal.

    Only 5 collecting dust......but I don't count any that belong to a handgun that I could carry, but usually don't.
