Thread: What do you do with the holsters you don't use?

  1. Put them in a box and save for friends and family

  2.   
  3. I know the feeling. Already starting an impressive collection for my 3 handguns.

  4. I rotate their duty, depending on attire and weather. OK, here's the truth; I spent a several weeks looking for two (IWB/OWB) holsters that would work for me, based on customer reviews and talking with their makers. Didn't want to make the mistake of buying 'til I found the right ones.

    Nate's Custom Holsters OWB, and Nate Squared Pro IWB. My BIL also gave my wife a galco holster for her wheel gun she likes.

    I couldn't be happier! Spent 120 bucks on the two holsters, love them both, and saved enough to blow the extra on ammo.

    Sorry...holster success story here.

    Holster Preferences

    I generally rotate holsters for use and wear. I've got a nice SERPA holster for OWB carry in the winter to conceal under a coat, and 2 IWB - one Galco for 1 oclock position and one Desantis for 5 Oclock position. I can use them all, so no need to get rid of them!! If you have some that don't fit or you won't use, I might try to trade or sell them for something you could use.
    This gets me thinking - what is the best all around holster from you all? I've heard great things about old faithful and Nates, I like the sturdiness of Galco's - not sure what to try next. Opinions?
    Thanks!

    I try to stick with leather holsters. Blackhawk and Glaco are my favorites. I also try to aim for ones that come off without taking the belt off. I also usually keep my holsters. I would sell to someone if I got an offer.

    They are safe and sound in a little black bag. I'm always wanting to try something different and rather than buy a new one, I got back to the old ones and try them again. Saves money.

    As a firearms instructor, a selection of holsters of all types, good and bad, liked and not liked, is a good thing.

    Good for students to see what all types are available, as there are so many styles.

    What do you do with the holsters you don't use?

    I don't understand the "buy three holsters for every gun" thing. When I buy a gun it's usually for a specific purpose so I buy a holster to match that purpose. I only have one holster for each gun I own except for my Glock 23 because I use it for several different things. If I don't like the first one I buy, I either sell it or give it away. I have no need a holster that I don't like or use.

  10. I'm not quite up to a drawer full of holsters, but I'm in line with Lowjiber's law of three (how do manufactures get their pheromones to go through the internet, where I buy my holsters???). Anyhow, I find that as the seasons changes, I go back to some of the holsters that were once relegated to a drawer. Currently, the Remoras and the Desantis Nemesis are getting the nod now that we are in shorts weather. When the clouds and rain roll back into the Pacific NW, I'll go back to the Old Faithful holsters.

    I do have a couple of holsters that just did't make the cut, maybe I should list it in a WTS listing in the buy, sell, trade forum?
