    DM Bullard Dual Carry Holster Issue/Question

    Got mine last week from bullard and have been carrying a week now IWB for my XD9SC.

    For anyone else that has holster, does the lip "collapse" on you? Is the mouth of the holster soft? It seems that the leather is a bit on the softer side and I can't re-holster one handed.

    Is it just mine or are all the dual carrys like that?

    Thanks.

    Don't know anything about Bullard. My IWB by Tucker is like that. Seems to hold the gun alright though..... fwiw....

    Seems odd. Just checked the page for that holster on his site. In part it says
    All Dual Carry Holsters will have reinforced opening
    And it looked like it was reinforced (extra piece of leather at the mouth). I'd suggest you contact him and discuss the issue. I got great customer service when I ordered my Bodyguard and mag pouch (was thinking of ordering a belt this week to match).
    Regards, T Bone.

    I've got one of the Dual Carry Holsters for my Para-Ordanance 14.45 LDA LTD. My holster does slightly close when I draw my gun but not to much. I have no problem re-holstering one handed.

    I have on that I use for my 1911s and it stays open and can reholster with one hand, I would probably give him a call and see what he will do about it.

    Not being able to re-holster with one hand is somewhat of a true pain for practice drawing but, I'm not really sure it's such a huge problem for a daily carry holster where the firearm is pretty much going to stay holstered the entire time it is on your person.

    Also...if you're involved in a future deadly encounter you are probably not going to be doing much re-holstering anyway.

    Your firearm will likely remain unholstered until LEOs arrive.
    Then it's going to be on the ground.
    Then it's going to be in the possession of law enforcement.

    Mine doesn't stay open, but I don't find that a detriment. Can generally reholster one handed with a little care. But again, I don't much care about that feature. IMO, speed drawing is important, but speed reholstering is a non-issue. I also have it set low, so that the outside lip of holster is just barely even with top of belt/pants, which doesn't help in this case, but conceals better.

    Does yours have the new strip of leather across the top? I see onsite pix showing that. Mine was made before he added that.

    I have the holster for the Bersa and have no issues. IWB or OWB holster is fine or pulling and easy to insert one handed.
    Take Care and Be Safe.

    I have one and while I like it, I too have an issue with the top being "flimsy". I bought this for my XD.

    It is a good holster but as for reholstering you can just about forget it without pointing the barrel of the gun at your side and opening the holster that way.

    On the other hand, for my Bersa, I got a holster with it. After some research I figured out it was a Wild Bill Holster...it had no external markings whatsoever.

    I LOVE THIS HOLSTER! It allows me to draw and reholster one handed and quickly. I would highly recommend this holster to anyone looking for a new one.

    How long did it take for your dual carry to ship once you ordered it? Thanks!

    Its the newer one with the extra leather by the lip. I think you're right about the holster riding deep low and the outside lip being lined up with my belt doesn't help things.

    I emailed David about the problem and he said to ship it back and he'd check it out for me, but I'm just too lazy to ship it back, so I'll just stick through it for now. I use the ROG IWB holster somedays and it must be reinforced or something because the mouth stays open no matter what! But the Bullard is so much more comfortable.

    I recived the holster about a week after I ordered it.

    Well, all in all...ease of reholstering is a pretty low priority for me. More important is ease/speed of draw and comfort/concealment.

    It looks like he changes his design. I have an older design, and its not too bad to reholster. Its certainly doesnt stay wide open either.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    Well, he's added that lateral piece of leather toward the top...I assume that's to help make mouth stay open better. He just started that soon after I got my last Dual Carry from him. Course, that would make it a little thicker too. Same thing K&D does with the Thunderbird, although it's a bigger piece of leather.

    Re-holstering is VERY important if you're going to carry a gun. A good share of your realistic practice should be out of the holster, even dry firing. If you have to fight to get the gun back in, it's worthless.
    Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
