A pistol holster is a very practical thing to have, if you want to do shooting sports with some sort of sanity involved, and adhere to basic safety principles by not carrying your firearm, say, tucked under your sweatpants’ waistband and pointed at your genitals.

A pistol holster is a very practical thing to have, if you want to do shooting sports with some sort of sanity involved, and adhere to basic safety principles by not carrying your firearm, say, tucked under your sweatpants’ waistband and pointed at your genitals. A proper reservist/military person will also always have their sidearm readily available – a rule of thumb is, if you need to use your pistol, you will probably need to use it fast!

Pistol holsters have different features according to their type and make. Our collection includes not-so-tactical but cool surplus holsters and modern top-of-the-line ones used by law enforcement and militaries around the world. Modern pistol holsters are usually made of plastic, and they vary in attachment methods and retention levels.

Safariland holsters have retention mechanisms, which prevent drawing the gun without first unlocking the mechanism. This is mandatory in most cases when carrying a service pistol. Safariland is also popular among sport shooters.

C&G Holsters manufactures kydex pistol holsters with friction based retention. A friction based retention system is simpler and perhaps faster to use, but it is best suited for training and everyday carry purposes. They can as well be used in competition; even a semi-proficient person can install some sort of cord retention to avoid spontaneous unholstering in the midst of a rough shooting stage, where one might accidentally rifle-scoop their pistol out of the holster, and get DQ’d while doing so. This has been known to happen from time to time. As said, in normal practice circumstances friction based retention works just fine.

If you have a very tactical lifestyle, and prefer having your pistol on your thigh, you might want to consider a thigh holster or a drop leg panel. Check out our drop leg panels, and then choose a pistol holster with appropriate attachment options.
