    Which brands of holsters do you perfer?

  • #2
    Safariland.

    Built like a tank, last forever, excellent weapon retention, easy to maintain and keep looking good, pretty much as good as it gets.

    I've used the SS070 III security holster before and I'll be using it again soon. The new Safariland security holster looks interesting (it goes into a level 2 secure mode upon reholstering automatically) but it rides too low for my tastes.

        I was never in uniform, so from the investigations side, I have used Safariland, Bianchi, and Bruce Nelson Combat Holsters (no longer in operation). My first choice today would be Safariland.

          The Bianchi "Accu Mold" wears well and looks good. It has good retention, but an easy draw.

            Safariland. I've used two different SSIII holsters (changed handguns) and really like them. I also have a couple Safariland paddle holsters that are very nice. I have used G&G, Bianchi and Uncle Mikes also but prefer the Safarilands over them all.

                  Retention without a thumb break?

                  Is there a holster that allows retention without using a thumb break or rotating thumb hood?

                  Thanks.

                    Safariland. Especially the Raptor, or at least with the SLS hood lock system. Great stuff.

                    Belt wise, we have the Gould & Goodrich Phoenix line of nylon gear. Nothing but good experiences, and it doenst have a cheap look to it like some others I have seen.

                      The Best Holster Maker

                      In my humble opinion, Milt Sparks is about as good as you're going to get when it comes to holsters for carry in civilian clothes. Each holster-maker stamps his initials into the finished product, assuring you the highest quality possible. I mean, no one is going to put their name on junk! Besides the top-notch quality, their customer service puts them at the very top of the list. I've called them several times (even visited their shop one day) with many questions and they answered them with knowledge and patience.

                        You may want to look at this, depends on what weapon your carrying.

                          retention without a thumb break

                          Thank you Kelly,

                          This looks interesting. Anyone have any experience with it?

                          I'm also looking at a comparison between the Safariland 6280 and the Bianchi Speedlok model 7935.

                          Any experience out there that would support one or the other?

                          Our local dept. lets us decide what holster to use.

                          Thanks so much.

                            ipscman:

                            If you're looking for a duty holster without a thumbreak or hood, look at the Safariland 295. It is or recently was the issue holster for NYPD. It uses a finger break on the inner portion of the holster along the leg and a snap up front to allow you to draw the weapon while allowing really good security. For off duty, there are a bunch of new holsters (especially kydex) that allow retention without a thumbreak.

                            The Bianchi holster you show there is lately the #1 holster bought by our new guys, without the oversized "knuckle break". The 6280 is the #2. The Bianchi seems to have greatest favor because it is quite a bit cheaper than the Safariland yet is also a pretty good holster. My strong preference is for the 6285 (1.5" lower than a 6280 on the belt).
                            Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

                              You can also try Tactical Design Labs. We have a demo of their retention holster that we've been trying for the last week. No thumb break, no hood strap just a concealed button which gets pushed by your index finger on the draw. A little ugly but effective.
