Exactly What is the Difference Between a Fantastic Holster and a Functional One?
I am in the market for two holsters as I have added some guns to my carry rotation. Like most of you, I have purchased many holsters, eyeballed hundreds and felt semi-disappointed in most of them. I am a bit confused because there are reputable brands like K&D that sell a holster that might work for about $85. Then there are the el cheapos like the Uncle Mike's nylon holsters that are to be avoided at all costs. Finally, we have the other end of the spectrum, the very fine holsters that cost $190+ and sometimes feature exotic leathers.
I am looking at some of these holsters (i.e. Pure Kustom, etc.) and am just trying to understand exactly what it is I am paying for. I know it is true: you get what you pay for. I would really like a holster that does it all and is wonderfully comfortable. But I don't want to just buy the most expensive holster out there just because it's expensive. Is there a process or something specific that is done to the ultra high-end holsters that makes them unique? I have heard of holsters being "boned" and that being a good thing... but just wondering exactly what to look for in a super high-quality holster.
