Use a Quality Holster...
« on: April 16, 2005, 10:21:53 PM »

It is pretty funny to see folks spend 400, 500, 1000 or more dollars on a pistol and then pack it around on a flimsy belt and cheap holster. In addition to slowing the drawstroke, potentially printing more, and perhaps having the gun fall out, cheap holsters also make retention much more difficult.

This clip has been going around the internet for a while, but some here may not have had the chance to watch it yet... http://www.berettaforum.net/downloads/GUNGRAB.MPE

The holster in question was a Fobus, but could of just as easily been an Uncle Mike's... both are in the same league.

Make it easier to hang onto your gun, get a good holster and belt!

Quality holster and belt is a must. Quality doesn't even necessarily mean expensive. I have a Don Hume JIT that I carry my Glock 19 in that was only 29.00, but it is well made, secures the pistol nicely and tucks the butt in for concealment.

Friends don't let friends buy Fobus. ;D

Other general rules of thumb...

- If it clips on, it probably clips off too...
- If it takes two hands or requires looking at the holster to put the gun away, get a different one...
- If it is a "one holster fits many guns" (and not referring to cases like the G17 and G22 for example), it probably isn't any good either...
- If the same holster can be anything from an IWB to a shoulder holster and several gajillion different things in between, make up your mind and buy a holster that does specifically one thing...
- Being able to access your gun under stress is probably slightly more important than having so many retention levels that the bad guy can't get at the gun either.
