    Just got a DB380 yesterday and now looking for a holster. Any of you DB380 owners finding what works out there? Please list brand, models and, of course, pictures. IWB? Pocket? Ankle?

    (I did see on another thread where RKBA Holsters is going to have one available soon)

    I found that a Blackhawk! Pocket Holster #3 could work too for the DB380.

    I just got a RKBA pocket holster in the mail today for my DB380.

    IMHO, it's a great product with outstanding quality for the price. Stephen at RKBA was very helpful and his customer service was A+++....

    No need to post a pic of mine because it looks just like the one on the website. Check it out!

    I just got one like this except it's black. Stephen does great work. One thing that's nearly impossible to see in the photos is how precisely it fits. This is NOT a "one size fits most" holster. It is blocked out specifically for the DB380. Leather and stitching quality are very good.

    I was looking at ordering one of these however decided against it because the stitching looks really bad.

    I ordered a #2 Uncle mikes pocket holster till I can find something leather that I like.

    For what it's worth...I really like my RKBA holster for my DB380...no issues and the stitching is fine. I carry it most everyday. It's a fine leather and very durable.

    Not to hijack the thread, but how is your DB380 performing? You had any issues with yours? Have you been to Diamondbacktalk yet? I'm starting to think all the guys that hang out on DBTalk are either detractors who don't have a DB380, or they do have some issues, and flock to the internet to ***** and moan. FWIW, I have two DB380s, and have no issues with either one. Serial #'s ZA176x and ZA582x.

    Mine was very bad out of the box. I sent it off and it came back doing well (in about 75 rounds of testing). I glommed onto 100 rounds of relatively reasonably priced Winchester FMJ and intend to try it some more, but haven't had a chance to get out to a range yet.

    I wasn't thrilled with DB's trying to charge me $40 for shipping it back when the gun was practically DOA, and I do think enough of us have had this issue that it's not just butthurt whiners (if so, count me as one of those). They replaced several parts on the gun, so it wasn't just my imagination.

    I do like the way it shoots and especially the weight. It's okay for the purpose intended, provided the reliability holds up, and I hope the company can learn from whatever it is they're doing.

    My serial is ZA40xx, fwiw

    One thing I noticed is that it's grooved for stitches all the way around.:dunno:

    My DB has been fine, too. (ZA16xx) The only issue for me has been some FTE/FTF with 90gr FMJ. When I fire 95gr FMJ or any +p JHP, I have no problems at all. Yes, I'm on DBtalk and have seen what you've seen.
