I need a holster I can take on and off multi times A day. How does A good leather paddle compare to A owb holster for comfort?
The point I was trying to make is the hassle of threading the belt through the holster versus clipping to the the waistband and belt. GWARDA paddle is an OWB holster. I'm not sure what your question is. Some paddle holsters are excellent. A good paddle holster is hard to remove from the belt. Crappy ones are easy to remove, and become easily dislodged. The blackhawk serpa is a good mid-range paddle. Galco makes some nice ones in leather. Paddle holsters tend to stand a little further out from the belt, increasing comfort, and decreasing concealability. As with any belt mounted holster, paddle holsters will not perform as designed unless worn on a proper gunbelt.
I use the Fobus GL26 for my G26 and a C21 for my PF-9; both do great for me. I also have a GL4 Roto for my G30SF that sucks hind tit for concealment.I rock a Fobus paddle. I have a Fobus roto-paddle too. Honestly, they're the 2 most comfy holsters I've had. I use 'em for carry and for IDPA. They don't hide nearly as easily as even a pancake, but are FAR more comfy. I don't mind sacrifincing for speed. Actually, I prefer them for belt rigs(Even over my Galco Royal Guard or their Summer Comfort) I go galco for leather and Fobus for plastics. I really have taken to the paddle though. I may give a Galco paddle a try soon. Whew, outta breath... dam* I talk a lot...

I guess "advantage" was the wrong word, to use. I was brain farting as to how to word that statement. More like practicality, because I could not figure how to use the paddle effectively. I tried putting it inside my pants but it seemed quite the chore. :embarassed: Its been a while, maybe I'll try it again.Most people wear the paddle under the pants. The advantage is if you take your gun off multiple times a day, you don't need to remove your belt.
