    This is mainly aimed at non-CCW holders, but others are welcome to chime in. I just figure non-CCW holders have less need to purchase holsters.

    Do you have a holster for your house gun? What about all the other handguns in your possesion? After how many handgun-holster combos do you think is enough? (let's say you have 20 guns, then you would probably only need 7-10 holsters for 12 guns)

    I have holsters for most of my guns.

    However, some are covered under 'universal holsters' like Yaki slides.

    And then I have a couple 'Non carry guns' like a 1917 that I just have 'for the collection' and such.
    -No holster for it... I think, I'd have to check my 'holster box'.

    I have SEVERAL holster types for the pistols I actually CCW...

    This Question is too general as some people have 12 1911's, and others have one example of each type of pistol, others have 50+ pistols...

    So I'll address the 1911's:
    Yaki slide
    OWB
    IWB
    Drop leg
    I have an old Shoulder holster... one of the chepo uncle mikes... Havn't used it in 9-10 years. I don't like shoulder rigs.

    -Not necessarely just one of each type ether.

    Yes. This has more to do with my limited selection than anything else.

    the only holsters I own are leather speed rigs for my 1911 and Vaquero. Being a fine upstanding MD resident I am not extended the noble privelage of a CHL, so competition, collecting and a gun-safe filler are about all I can use holsters for. Now most of my long guns have slings, I don't carry them with the slings, but most are mil-surps, so the original slings are there, and a sling can be used to aid hold at the range, but draw from holsters during "practice" is not allowed at any of the 4 local ranges I use.

    Pretty much . . . have them for everything I carry & several to fit the 1911 frame. I am running out of drawer space to keep them in, however . . .

    I have several holsters for my carry gun - which fit its understudies and a couple of game or range holsters as well. A couple of field holsters for a magnum revolver.

    On the other hand I have a S&W model 31 I'd consider a pocket pistol for the field - plinking and waiting for the next Blacktail Jack boom (long wait) - and such that don't have holsters. Though I'd buy the right holster if I ran across it cheap.

    Then too a nice Pachmayr box and a range bag fill the need for something to carry a pistol in.

    More holsters than pistols make sense to me because I try to keep a couple of different colors for daily carry and alternate them.

    No. I have a Milt Sparks leather holster for my CCW piece and kydex beltslides for my G17 and XD9. The rest of my guns are just range shooters and get hauled around in a handgun case.

    In addition to the holsters that are used I have an HP Printer box full of all kinds of extras. Many holsters that look like they are going to work don't, so I toss them in the box and then try something else.

    I have more holsters than I have handguns,but it's basically what Sistema said,I have a box full,and if I had the time to check it out,I bet I have holsters that won't fit anything I have,but I thought they'd be awesome when I bought them...:rolleyes:

    Yes they all have at least one dedicated holster and some have several depending on the intended carry method and use.

    I have crummy holsters for most of my guns. I need to fix/upgrade this.

    No as there is no reason for having a holster for a house gun, or a target gun as I will Never carry either.

    yes. I only have one pistol right now, however everyone i get will have a holster. I hope to ccw where legal soon and also, when i am in illinois and we are shooting, we cover lots of ground and i like to not have my hands full, or leave my gun at the truck.

    but shotguns look funny in holsters, so i guess my answer is really no. :)

    Got holsters for what I carry/plan to carry. Got some cheapies uncle mike's kydex stuff for what I don't carry often (P226 DAK and Kimber). Got good leather, kydex and even custom work for what I do carry often (P7M8 and G34). I have several holsters that don't get worn to often for my carry guns, but I do occasionally usem them for special needs. Galco Cop slide for when I need a thumbsnap for court or what not off duty, Don Hume OWB avenger style holster for when I'm carrying under a suit jacket. Hofner IWB for when I want a full size pistol with minimum printing. Comptac CTAC for the P7 when I really want to go under cover with the shirt tucked even.

    Everything I own I have a holster for. A holster is one of the first things I acquire. For most it's just an Uncle Mike's Sidekick utility grade holster. Not much point in getting anything better here in the People's State.

    Only for ones I carry. I always seem to need one or two more than I have though.

    I don't have holsters for all my guns, because some of my guns are just range queens. The other thing is that I have yet to find a suitable gun belt that can fit around my fairly massive girth, so although I own a very nice Ross slide for my 1911, I never really use it. In a twisted way, I sort of appreciate this fact, because if I could, I have a feeling I would spend way more money than necessary on holsters...
