    Last year, I got a Craft holster for my Walther P99 handgun, and I wrote a review of that particular holster on this very gun forum. Well, I decided to get ANOTHER holster from Craft - this time for my Hk P2000. ( https://www.craftholsters.com ). The P2000 is my main carry gun - it's been my daily carry for over 4 years now.

    For this second Craft holster, I got a different holster model - This time I got the Leather Pancake Holster with 2 positions. You can see it listed here: https://www.craftholsters.com/leather-pancake-holster-w-2-carry-positions-p77

    I went with a black leather holster for this occasion, instead of brown. And, I must say that the black leather looks great!

    I can also report that it really carries very well. I've had the holster for close to two months now, and I really like the retention strap that this model comes with. Plus, the holster holds the gun tightly to your waist so that printing is minimized. I also like the way the holster wraps around the gun with the retention strap, because the strap gives great protection from sweat.

    As I mentioned in my other Craft review - it gets super hot down here in Texas for the majority of the year. The strap acts like a sweat guard, and it keeps me from having to wipe the gun down daily (in the summertime). That is very helpful.

    I had been previously using a Galco Matrix holster to carry my HK P2000, but it provides no protection from sweat at all. So, it is very nice to have that feature with this Craft Holster, as it was lacking with my previous holster.

    Once again, the quality and stitching on the holster is very good. And, the holster is available in mahogany (brown) and in black leather. So, two color choices.

    I had not really been familiar with Craft Holsters prior to getting my first holster from them last year. But, after I posted my previous review on a few gun forums, it was interesting to see many comments from others stating that they had been buying holsters from Craft for several years. So, it was good to hear that they have many satisfied customers.

    I am very happy with the holster - and if anyone else has an HK P2000, you can see the various models they offer here: https://www.craftholsters.com/heckler-koch-p2000-holsters

    But, they seem to make holsters for many other manufacturers as well. In fact, I am contemplating ordering a 3rd holster from them soon - for my Beretta PX4 Compact.

    Update. I've had the opportunity to wear this a lot more often. I really am enjoying this holster quite a lot. Comes in handy during the summer heat - I am not getting the slide all wet from sweat with this holster compared to the one I previously used.

    Texas is HOT!

    Thanks for the review as I hadn't heard of Craft Holsters til now. I like most of their designs and the prices seem very reasonable. Will have to give them a try.

    Thanks Shipwreck. I'd never heard of Craft Holsters before, but one of them looks like just the ticket for my Sig M11-A1. I "settled" for the holster I have it in now because I got tired of looking. But I'll be ordering a holster for my Sig from Craft Holsters real soon - and I won't be settling. Their prices seem very reasonable too.:)

    Unfamiliar brand to me also, but their prices seem reasonable and they have an enormous selection of styles.

    Surprisingly, their kydex holsters appear to cost more than their leather models.
