    For my G19s, I have the following:

    Tauris pancake OWB. Used 24/7 except summer months.

    Tauris IWB. Uesd 24/7 during the summer months.

    Sidearmor Kydex. Used when taking classes.

    Glock sports holster. Backup holster.

    For my G26, which I no longer CCW, I have a Tauris IWB.

    I have just started using a Safariland ALS retention holster for work and I am never going back. I love this thing. It draws like "butter" and I am hard pressed to be able to tell a diference in speed from drawing from a non retention kydex as opposed to it. I never believed it until I tried it about a month ago. I use it for my G17.

    for ccw of my chopped G31 I use a Comp-Tac Infide, very comfy and secure yet its easy to get on and off.

    for open carry in the woods when cutting wood or scouting for a hunt, Blackhawk Serpa, it has a "lock" that must be pressed with the trigger finger to draw the weapon, very, very secure when doing vigorous activities like cutting wood.

    Do the "plastic" holsters wear the finish off the slides worse than leather of nylon?

    Theis IWB.

    $55. Hand made in America. I conceal a G21 all day long in it. Very comfortable.

    Nuff said.

    Blackhawk Serpa CQC- because it works great for me
    Galco Miami Classic (shoulder holster)- because it's arguably the best

    I have a Don Hume leather thumbsnap H721 for every handgun I own. It is my go to holster for OWB carry. It is a good holster, and relatively cheap ($40-50).

    The kydex holsters that have pinch-type retention around the trigger guard do cause a smoothed area to develop on the trigger guard of my Glock.

    My old daily CC was a G35 in a Comp-Tac C-Tac. Now it's going to be a G20 long slide in a C-Tac.

    Because it is the very best IWB holster I have ever found period (leather, kydex, or hybrid). Comfort, concealment, retension, presetation, reholstering...it gets top marks across the board.

    I get no wear on the finish with my Safariland holsters. They are lined with felt. My kydex adds some wear but it is not enough to worry about.

    EDC gun is a Glock 19 in a Kramer OWB horsehide belt scabbard, when I want/need a little more concealment I go with a Comp Tac CTAC IWB holster.

    My wife's EDC gun is a Glock 26, she carries it in a FIST ultra-thin kydex IWB holster with split-leather belt loops (K6-G option).

    Been using Kramer holsters since the early 90s, first holster that I buy for any gun that I buy - have even bought some for guns that I was going to buy in the future :supergrin:.

    Used several different IWB holsters (Kramer, Sparks, FIST, Blade-Tech, Galco) but I really like the CTAC.

    My wife loves the ultra-thin kydex FIST option.

    For IWB, I use the Comp-tac Minotaur holster. It allows to to tuck in a shirt, and only the two clips are exposed. You can get clips to match your belt color as well, so most people won't even notice, let alone question.

    For OWB, I use the Comp-tac paddle holster. I wear a lot of button down shirts unbuttoned, and have no issues with concealment. If I needed a retention system for my concealment holster I would opt for the Safariland 6378.
