    I have a Crossbreed Supertuck and a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro. I really like the Supertuck and I love the Black Ops Pro. Between these two holsters, it I can carry my Glock 19 IWB (a ton of different cants and heights options) and OWB. I technically don't need anymore holsters since I have found 2 that work perfectly BUT I like holsters especially custom leather ones.

    I know a lot of people have a box of holster which I assume is because they are always searching for the perfect one. If I have the perfect holster, should I buy more?

    I also have a Ruger GP100 4 inch that I don't have any holsters for. Would you buy a holster for this instead? I just don't know if I would carry this since it is kind of big and heavy.

    1. If you have your bases covered w/ IWB/OWB, then I'd say don't waste money. Only thing I see is if you're going to ever compete in IDPA/USPSA (which I highly recommend to anybody) you'll need a nice kydex for USPSA and maybe a kydex IWB or highride OWB kydex for IPDA to ease or reholstering.

    2. Where/how would you carry the revolver? If it's just in the woods for bear/cats/etc, just get a cheap nylon belt holster or a nice chest rig.

    I want to carry the revolver concealed and sometimes in the woods/camping/fishing. IWB would be nice but OWB would work in the winter.

    It has been said that every holster you buy is one step closer to a Milt Sparks VMII:whistling:

    I'm also VERY HAPPY with my MTAC--BUT-- A VMII or TT gun leather:notworthy: are really seeming like something I NEED:wavey:

    Also I'm NEEDING a good shoulder holster for fishing with my G23

    Then finally once you get a Milt Sparks, you are one step closer to a Pure Kustom :supergrin:

    If you have the holster you believe is "it" for you... why would you buy any more? Unless its going to serve some purpose that the other holsters won't, I don't see any reason to buy more unless you're just dying to.

    For me, I love my leather, but the thought of ruining my nice leather while camping/fishing, doesn't sit well with me. For those purposes, I have a Sidearmor Modular OWB, and a Wilderness Instructor. Both have had their share of bad weather camping, getting wet, etc. The Instructor's velcro is pretty much toast, but its no big deal, I just run the excess under a belt loop, and go on w/ life.

    No a new holster would not serve any purpose other than satisfy my curiosity in regards to another holster maker's work.

    I do have a supertuck for those camping/fishing or other instances where the holster could get roughed up.

    You actually just gave me a good idea. I have numerous cheap belts and on good leather gun belt. I need a wilderness belt for those camping/fishing type situations. Thank you
