I know that I have recommended that some of you look at the top of the line quality holsters made by Red Nichols. I was browsing his site yesterday, as he sometimes adds interesting stuff, and noticed that he is knocking 20% Off his entire line of holsters ( and his unique belt) if you use the coupon code DC Forum! I thought this was a good deal for me to pass along. There are some of you that have his holsters and can attest to their incredible quality, and perfection of design. I have a few, myself.
Just like the numerous times that people have posted on the critical nature of a really good belt, I have found that I consider more than my selection of the right gun for carry, and carefully choose my belt and holster accordingly.
When I was on active duty in the USAF, I was told that Fighters and Bombers were not merely airplanes, but "weapons systems". I have come to believe that my carry rig is such a system. The right pistol ( for my needs), carried in the right holster on the right belt.
Having the requisite holster drawer, I feel qualified to say that the holsters that give me the most satisfaction have been Red's.

A few years ago Red Nichols had a contest on one of his Threads in this site. I won a free custom holster he made. I ended up selling the gun it was for (Glock 26) and so i sold holster. I seriously regret it though it was a fine piece of craftsmanship. :( :( It was one of those where keeping a gun i didn't want just to have the holster would have been worth it lol.

They are awesome holsters. The man knows how to fold and sew leather.

This review is possibly the best, most complete explanation of how a properly designed and perfectly constructed holster is made. It touches on all the elements of design, and how they work together to produce a holster that does it's job the way it should. For anyone in the market for a fine holster, it should be required reading.
