Default Need a new holster...or two.

Anyone care to make a recommendation for a concealed carry IWB, and/or an OWB holster, which will be mainly for the range, that you personally use...and why you like it?

Foxx holsters. Good retention, adjustable and less expensive than crossbreed.

I've been using one from Old Faithful Holsters for a little over a year now. They have a hell of a guarantee-try it for 30 days and if you don't like it they'll send your money back & you can keep the holster. I ordered mine as a kit but I don't see that option now. Very comfortable, functional, and well made for a modest price.

If you are just looking for a range holster the blackhawk is fine. If you conceal carry your range holster should really be the one that is your daily carry

Best IWB holster I have or have worn....ad tere have been many. It is soft, conforms to your body and unlike alot of IWB holsters the butt of your weapon does not touch your skin.....that in and of itself makes it a winner.

Second choice and the one I use alot when riding is the Ron's Holster. as simple as it is, it is great for riding and you barely even know you have it.

Third choice and my second when riding is the 5.11 concealed shirt. A bit spendy but for riding they work great.

Alien Gear holsters are ok. A lot like the Crossbreed and the Oldfaithful one pictured above. I would stay away from the soft loops though. In theory they work great but in practice; not so much.

The new tuckable belt loops they have available sound pretty much the same as the Crossbreed type.

Any IWB holster is only going to be as good as the belt it is attached to though. A good gun belt doesn't have to be expensive. Simply doubling the leather and stitching it and gluing the two layers together will do it. Anything more than that is simply layering the cake with pretty stuff.

If you ever want to have two belts stitched together with the buckle section being the standard thickness; shoot me a PM and I'll send you my address so you can send me what you want stitched. I'll do it for you (and anyone else) for under $20 and that includes shipping it back to you.

Heck; I might as well put this $3k leather stitching machine I bought to make heat shield/deflectors to good use. Maybe some day it will even pay for itself.

I have the N82 holster for my Sig, it is super comfortable but that is quickly crushed by how hard it is to get out of the holster, not much use if you can't get your gun out.

It requires you to twist the gun a bit to release it but depending on your seating position it can be difficult, also with the padding being so thick it makes it difficult to get a good grip.

I always seem to be pulled back to the crossbreed/foxx style holsters.

Agree to a point, but I have not found a single holster that is easy to draw from in a seated position. As far as twisting a bit to draw, it just takes a second of practice.

When I carry and ride I always use a shoulder holster, the Ron's or the 5.11 shirt.

I don't like ANY IWB when riding, and nothing much IWB is easy to pull from when seated.
