Just picked up my first hangun a couple weeks ago. It came with a plastic belt holster, but it marks the gun. Anyone have info on a nice leather holster for it?

The freebies that come with them will do the job but they aren't the best.
Are you looking for OWB, IWB, Pocket, Shoulder, etc.

^Bingo.

Quoted for the truth.


I personally like a little patina on my stuff. Shows that it's used and loved, you know?

Thanks for the replies. I think I will just use the holster that came with the gun for now and buy a different one as my needs change.

Make sure you buy a nice holster if you are going to conceal and carry it. The comfort they offer over the "cheaper" stuff is incredible. Also, don't cheap out on a carry belt. I wear one that is amazing but doesn't give it away.

Like others have said, there's going to be holster wear no matter what you use. Leather, Kydex, Nylon, they all mark it differently. Galco makes good leather holsters, there's a place to start Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters . They're pricey but well built. Another place to look is local to me, called Winthrop Holsters. I haven't purchased one from him yet, but I know others who have and love them. Here's his link: Winthrop Holsters, LLC Home Page

Blade-Tech makes good Kydex holsters, as does DSG Arms. There's some options for ya.

There are tons of holster mfg's out there, first thing to decide is where and how you want to carry it. Then go from there.

I prefer Milt Sparks holsters, best that I have ever used and worth the wait if you can't find exactly what you want in stock.

I go IWB and like it to sit SOB.
