Carry rig poll - Who makes your everyday carry holster?

I'm interested to know what people are carrying their everyday guns in. I'm particularly interested to know if anyone is carrying in an Uncle Mikes or a no-name nylon holster, and how that works for you.

I put up a few, but I expect that if I see "other" shoot up I must have missed one.

Kramer Speed Scabbard in black horsehide. I traded into this holster and the handgun that fits it, and it quickly became my favorite.

I am using a generic Uncle Mikes IWB for my Witness 10mm, while I am waiting for my S&W MP compact to get here. once that arrives and i get confortable with it and find a good holster, the witness will become a backpacking/ hunting backup gun.

No Milt Sparks, Del Fatti, or Alessi in the poll? That might be what lance22 was thinking of.

My primary is toted 90% of the time in a COM by HBE. So, I answered "custom." When I replace it, it will be replaced by a Milt Sparks VM2.

The other 10% of the time, a Don Hume OWB/pancake/high-ride dealie does the trick.

Gould and Goodrich IWB have been using it for years but it puts the Kimber right up against my spare tire and it doesn't feel good so I started wearing it OWB on the belt. I don't worry about it falling out because the spare helps hold it in place and it doesn't hurt as much as IWB.
Have an El Paso High Slide on order. Should get it tomorrow. Hope I like it.
I got a Concealment T today and it s**ks. The gun pulls down on one side of the shirt and is really uncomfortable and because of my size I have to do a same side draw instead of crossdraw like it is designed for. Good thing I can shoot right or left. Sorry for the long windedness.

Because ordering something professional would draw unnecessary attention to myself (am SA ex-service living in the EU with its ridiculous laws and ideas regarding firearms), I transformed a Bianchi belt holster into a shoulder rig using a space age saxophone strap. The weight of a Mod 36 pulls the main bulk slightly behind the armpit, so it's comfortable and virtually undetectable. The snubby hangs butt down. This sounds bad, but I can actually draw with either hand thanks to the way it positions itself.

Blackhawk CQC for my duty rig. Off duty is an Uncle Mike's pocket holster. I used to use a FIST which was HORRIBLE. I will never buy another of their products. Then I got a Com 2 (or 3?) from HBE. I don't carry my 1911 anymore since its having reliability issues. You'd think that Kimber would just replace the damn thing after it's third trip to the factory :rolleyes:

I wear an Andrews Custom Leather holster. I bought the Hybrid Saddle Style without the thumbreak (and a matching double mag carrier). Exceptional craftsmanship, excellent design. This model is not a pancake holster. The seams are offset so that when the holster is under the tension of the belt, it doesn't squeeze the gun making it difficult to draw.

His catalog of holsters, pouches, belts, and other accessories is impressive, containing some innovative setups. He does Cowboy rigs as well as custom work. The guy is absolute hoot to talk to on the phone. Great customer service. He hand makes the products himself, but the wait is more than worth it.

I've had good luck with Lobogunleather, and good value from Ray's Holsters (good basic clamshells for j-frame). Also Andrewsleather makes good heavy duty holsters.

In fact:

Go buy a lot of stuff from all of them right now, you won't regret it.

FIST ultra-thin Kydex for me

February 1, 2010, 10:30 AM
Custom made by me for me - leather/Kydex hybrid, left-hand IWB. Similar to those made by and shown in rustygray's post. I use some beige Kydex that I got surplus locally. Cost me less than 10 bucks for a full 4' by 8' sheet of the stuff. It was originally to be used in aircraft interiors. Not marked with the Kydex brand, but has the same thermoplastic properties and forms just like it.

Heres my MLS belt slide and and MV1 magazine holder from Andy Aratoonian at Horseshoe Leather. Five weeks seemed like an agonizing wait three years ago. What would you give to get a made-to-order holster that quick these days? I think you guys who make your own have the right idea!

OWB standard carry: DeSantis Speed Scabbard
OWB hiking carry: Blackhawk nylon OWB w/ thumbstrap
IWB: Galco, the $20 one

All my holsters are great. I recently learned with my Blackhawk that the strap goes over the back strap and not the grip. Makes a world of difference.

I have a sort of unkown brand, a Shado Left Handed CZ 75B holster. I love it. it has an adjustable button so you can adjust the size of the loop, the stitching is good quality, and my CZ fits it perfectly. And apparently it's made in South Africa

I got it in a CZ left hand version, which is almost impossible to find by any big brand, but they also have my particular holster in everything from the makarov to the walther ppk to the glock 17 to a GI 1911 and everything in between. I got the black version.
just in case your interested. Who doesn't need a new holster?
Man I sound like an ad.

Comp-Tac MTAC. I came very close to ordering a SuperTuck, but didn't like the crosses on the belt clips. Yeah, maybe I'm just being silly, but if my friends noticed I'm sure they'd start asking questions. I'm not exactly the most religious person.

Depending on what I am carrying...
Either a Galco Silhouette for my Astra Terminator or Smith N frame.
Bianchi CarryLok or Lobo IWB for my 1911.
I am having Ray at Lobogunleather make me a holster for the big .44 tho... He does some GREAT work.
