    N82 Tactical

    Has anybody seen/used a holster from these guys?

    N82Tactical.com

    Met them this weekend at the gunshow here in Charlotte. I bought one of their holsters. I don't have anything to compare it to yet since it was my first IWB holster. It's comfortable, retention seems good but I'm not crazy about reholstering. It flattens out without the gun in there and requires care in reholstering.

    No offense but they look like a waste of money.

    Get a good quality IWB and you'll never look back!

    I know that some folks REALLY like leather, and I will get around to spending the dough on one some day, but I prefer Kydex for a whole host of reasons.

    Inside Waist Band :: Holsters :: Blade-Tech Industries

    This is the company that I have found to be the best (IMO). Good gear for a good price.

    Kydex for me is a good material:

    1. Re-holstering is NEVER a problem
    2. Tough enough for my clumsy self
    3. Doesn't need to be "broken in"
    4. Cheaper (generally)
    5. Much more comfortable than you might think

    Try one out and see if it works for you. You can find Blade-tech's products for cheaper sometimes by running a Google search on a product brand name, it's how I got my NANO for $20 cheaper...
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    +2 on a good holster. You can't go wrong with good quality.

    I appreciate the replies regarding getting a good holster. I've read many many of the holster threads here. My interest in posting this was really to find anybody that was familiar with this particular holster.

    and Thumper.. No offense taken. Thanks for all the replies.

    On their website their big selling point is you dont have to use 2 hands to draw your weapon?? What holsters require 2 hands?

    I'm kind of sorry I posted this. I really was looking for someone that actually has some experience with this holster. I'm not really interested in what anyone thinks it looks like from the website.

    Anyway... my follow up review after 5 days.... super comfortable, feels secure, retention is strong, holds my g26 or G32 well. Reholstering has actually become easier although still not a strong point. I understand from the About Our Holsters section that natej recommended reading why they don't consider that to be important. So I'll change my question;

    Should re-holstering be a consideration in a holster?

    My suggestion would be to get a good owb holster such as the blackhawk serpa for general range work. With pants that arent as "forgiving", the holster you have can be worn owb if you slide your belt through the clip to hold the holster, but you should still consider a good range holster. I hope this helps.

    I have a range holster. Really never would have considered this holster for the range. Thanks

    For concealed carry in actual use, it most likely won't matter.

    BUT

    It is going to be an absolute pain in the rear to train with and yes, you should be training (not just target shooting) with your CCW setup which will require 100s of times drawing/reholstering.

    PLUS

    Any time you have to get your hand/thumb in between the holster and the gun to get a full grip before the draw it can be a problem, especially under stress. Ideally the grip of the gun should not be covered by the holster. For more comfort you can add a sweat shield that covers the upper portion of the slide only.

    I would never buy this holster. It isn't ideal for CCW or ideal for range use. IMHO, it doesn't do either well.

    It looks like I'm jumping into this this thread late, but will continue this one instead of starting a new one.

    I needed a CC holster for my wife's Sig P232, not exactly a lot of options out there, and I can't carry it in my pocket like my KelTec P3AT. I saw this holster at the Dixie Gun and Knife show in Raleigh last weekend, liked what I saw and liked the way it felt wearing one. Got it home, holstered the P232 and wore it around the house the rest of the day.

    However, retention isn't the best. I don't know if this is an issue with Level I holsters in general. If you got into a scuffle with someone, your gun may end up laying on the ground.

    Otherwise, there's suede leather against the body, smooth leather facing out, thick spandex holding the firearm, and a belt clip. Overall, a very comfortable holster to wear. If I were to change the design, it would be to add a little better retention material, custom made to the gun, maybe stiff leather.

    You get what you pay for. Considering I paid $40 for this holster versus the cost of custom leather, I'll stick with this. If I could find a holster this comfortable with molded retention, I would be willing to pay more.

    If anyone has any suggestions, I would like to hear them. Thanks in advance. Read the forum everyday from Google Reader. 2nd post, thanks guys!

    Buy correctly one time, buy incorrectly many times. I like holsters 'boned' to the specific holster, with exception to the NAA Mini .22LR, all others have their 'specific' holster for CCW. OMOYMV

    N82 Tactical

    I am pretty late to the discussion, but I have been looking for a holster of this type. I went to the gun show today, and bought one of these for my CW40. Do I worry about re-holstering -- NO. These holsters are very comfortable. I have been carrying for 14 years, and I have carried many weapons, both revolvers and pistols. If you are looking for great concealment against your body, then the pistol width definitely will have an effect with any holster. This holster allows easy access and quick draw which is a plus. Of all IWB holsters that I have ever tried or owned this one is definitely the most comfortable. I have found comfort to be very important for most people that carry. Holsters that I have had that were not comfortable finally ended up not being worn. I finally found comfort in a holster with this one. Best $40 that I have spent for anything conceal carry related. I know nothing about the guys who make these and cannot attest to this, but I am sure, based on their attitudes when speaking with them, that they would make something right if something went wrong with their product.
