If you don't use a hybrid holster....

You're doing it wrong. Just got a galco king tuk and it's by far the most comfortable concealment holster I've ever had. I've done several other IWB holsters as well as shoulder holsters and mic holsters and they all suck compared to the hybrid. Super easy to draw from as well.

Why bother trying to conceal if the state you live in doesn't mandate it? I use either a Serpa or a Galco belt slide, both OWB and far more comfortable than any IWB holster I've ever tried.

n8 squared has been my go to for comfort for a while, I have several and out of all I like the origional non tuckable the most out of all, the professiona series is just wierd how you have to twist the pistol to get it out, the soft tuckable is ok just kinda hard to get use to the flap/clip while trying to gear up.

Glad you're happy. I also had a king tuk. It was fine because I didn't know how comfortable a holster could be.

Horsehide. Even more comfortable than leather. Especially the mass produced types.
I have 3, the oldest carries my 26 in it during the summer. I can honestly say that sometimes I forget it's there.

Been carrying serious pistols for business for over 36 years and I tried them all. I don't bother with kydex and certainly not hybrids. Fine, custom horse hide from High Noon Holsters is my hands down choice for the last 15 years. Bill

Is there an exact definition of the term hybrid holster? I understand it to mean that the holster has two different materials that physically come into contact with the gun, but despite marketing efforts, the term could mean anything IMO.

This link was recently posted to a hybrid type holster. If I were in the market for one right now, it would be this one. The price and functionality are so attractive, I'm fighting off buying one lol.

Damn.


Well the king tuk is the only one I've tried. There are probably definitely better ones.

Has anyone tried alien gear and theis and n8 squared?

Consensus?

The hybrids are my least favorite type of holster. I've had M-TACs and CrossBreeds (still have a CrossBreed but that may go up for sale soon). To each their own.

Well, then maybe the Vanguard 2 would be a better match. That's what I ordered for IWB! http://rcsgear.com/

Once again. High noon is not a premier custom leather maker.
Just sayin.

The best

Delfatti, the now defunct Bulman gunleather,
Alessi, 5shot, and others are at the top.

I love when people post definitively what everyone else should carry or use.

You found something that works for you and are enthusiastic about it? Great!

This board has many members who possess a multitude of experience. Share your enthusiasm but temper it with respect for the knowledge that others can share as well

So that I'm not the first one shot or have my gun taken from me from someone behind me in line at Walmart who just found out he lost his job and contracted herpes. Everyone has their opinions, but I can't see the logic in this.
