Holsters and Cases

Finding the Right Shoulder Holster for You
Updated on 17th August, 2012

A high quality holster is not just designed to protect your gun, but to protect you and those you come in contact with while carrying.

Fit is critical. The tighter fit of the gun in the holster, the more wear that will be inflicted on the gun by holstering and un-holstering it. The looser the fit, the more wear that will be inflicted on the gun by carrying it.

Shoulder holsters are typically made with leather. One of the benefits of wearing a leather holster is that it has the ability to form to your body.

In addition, the leather can add a bit of resistance to your draw, granting you protection from the gun leaving the holster without being in your full control.

But I just carry in my pocket! Get a pocket holster like the one pictured here with my Colt .380 Mustang.

I once thought that utilizing a holster with pocket carry was useless and I don't particularly care for inducing the "holster wear" on the finish of my firearms, but safety comes first, above all else.

Trust me on this, once you find the right pocket holster for your gun, you'll wonder how or why you ever pocket carried without it. Note how the leather covers the trigger and the safety.

An added benefit is the holster keeps pocket lint out of and away from your piece.

This holster is designed to keep the pistol upright in the drawing position while in the pocket. The thickness of the leather aids in preventing accidental depression of the magazine release button.

Inside the Waistband Handgun Holsters
Updated on 17th August, 2013

Inside the waistband handgun holsters are designed to mount or clip to a belt and allow the wearer to securely holster the handgun inside their pants. Many inside the waistband handgun holsters allow the wearer to tuck their shirt over the holster to allow for maximum concealment and discretion. Wearing a gun on you does not mean you want to advertise that you carry a weapon. Inside the waistband holsters are a great way to carry your weapon without it or you attracting unwanted attention so you can protect yourself without advertising the fact you are packing heat.
