In recent years we’ve had an enormous number of local, custom Kydex holster makers ask us to carry their stuff but that is something we don’t want to delve into at the moment. If you have the skills to make Kydex holsters you can make a lot money, but mass producing a holster from your home without quality control issues coming up, is something that our experience in the tactical industry would warn us about. I personally prefer kydex holsters for inside the waist carry options, but I’m not opposed to leather holsters that are paddle, belt look or shoulder rigs.
I have several years of using Desantis leather goods and am very fond of them, but some of the products have their positive and negative appeals. Recently, Don Hume holsters have been a huge seller and for several years we have customers raving about how sturdy the holsters are in comparison to other brands. Even if a holster looks really good, you can notice edges of the holster bending or that the gun has zero retention and the guns become loose. All accessories, whether they are made of kydex, nylon or leather will wear out. Some holsters don’t really matter for smaller firearms, but when you get to full size and even medium size firearms, holster retention and durability really matter.
