There is no best. Pick what you like. You may do like quite a few of us have done. Buy a few to get what "you" like, what works for "you".
Keep your powder dry
There are several really outstanding makers who make a variety of great holsters. It is not possible to objectively say that there is a "best" holster. My favorite is the Sparks Executives Companion, but most would probably say that the Sparks VM2 is the standard by which others are judged.
After all the opinions are in take a look at the various makers products, and take the plunge. You will probably be pleased and in the future post that this one is the best. But you will get arguments.
But for you the one that is comfortable, and suits your needs will be the best. Only you with your build and likes and dislikes can make that decision.
Don't let price or waiting times be the deciding factors, and make sure you get a good belt. It is wise to get the belt from the holster maker as I have learned from the "school of hard knocks."
I'am happy with Milt Sparks.
