    Just a reminder, if you are buying another handgun, you need to buy a holster.

    Only one holster? I usually end up with a few....and after one use, they sit in one of my many holster drawers or boxes. Not sure how many cows I could recover if I stiched them all back together.

    That’s the good thing about sticking with 19’s, j frames and k frames. They can usually share the same holster.

    Don't need no stinkin' holster to pocket carry or IWB with a belt clip.

    First, remember this is the Survival/Prep group. If you are getting a gun for a range toy, that is fine, but if you are getting another gun so that you can carry (concealed or other) or plan on handing out, selling to someone in a SHTF or TEOTWAWKI, you kind of need a holster to go with.

    Kind of like having a gun and no ammo to go with. Not that useful.

    I will give you that revolvers are probably an exception, kind of. I have an old S&W 32L which can fit in coat pocket just fine.

    I will give it to you if you are just buying for yourself, then you only need "your" holsters.

    As for me, I picked up something which will more than likely be a range toy, but if SHTF, I want to be able to field (or have someone else field) these range toys.

    Hate to disagree with you but I will :). I've carried a gun almost daily for 45 years as a off duty cop or now retired as a civilian. Rarely use or used a holster. Most often pocket carry or IWB. Actually, the only time I use a holster is when hunting.

    Not all people may have that skill. There have been many people who shoot themselves when trying to carry without a holster.

    Big front pockets do work pretty well, I gotta admit.

    My seven Glocks get carried in two holsters. Glock Sport Combat Regular and Wide. If you haven’t tried em, you’re missing the best $15 holster ever made.

    Buying a new handgun always includes a total of six magazines and at least one holster.

    No way I could carry Messkin style in Florida. I'd be removing rust daily.

    Stainless steel, cerokote etc etc. OTOH more of my IWB, pocket carry guns are blue, they survive.

    I've got a blued LCP in a Desantis pocket holster that lasted 2 days before I had to strip one side and re-blue it. Florida is just too damn hot.

    If you have multiple Glock pistols, having the Glock sport/combat holsters makes a lot of sense, Two sizes fit all the double stack pistols. I am hoping they soon make one sized for my G43.

    Many holsters fit multiple Glocks because they are open-ended (so called "slide" holsters like is what Comp-Tac calls them).
