Is There a Best All Around Holster ?
I've been carrying concealed many years now,and have bought,and tried many holsters for the different handguns I carry.
Carry changes due to hot,or cold weather,and the clothing worn. I have a fair collection of holsters,some of which I've only worn once,and put in the holster box.
Don't care much for the plastics,due to the wear to the weapon.I know all holster produce finish wear to a point. My thing is some holsters work great while standing,or walking,but,the second you take a drive,the comfort level disappears.
I like IWB for general carry,but find it is uncomfortable while driving.I don't like swapping to a shoulder holster,or cross draw to drive ,even though they are more comfortable while driving,however,the moment one steps out of their vehicle,I feel I lose concealment, wearing a shoulder,or cross draw,and of course ,the shoulder holster is totally out of the question in the summer.
I know there is no magic answer,hence,a box full of holsters !My favorite IWB is a Milt Sparks type,while my favorite belt holster is the Askins Avenger style.I've tried Crossbreed,and Galco concealment,and they work well,but don't feel comfortable when I drive .
I usually wind up carrying my weapon tucked under my right leg while driving,and holster it,before I exit the vehicle,but,I don't like that practice.
I guess the bottom line is,if anyone has found a good,all around comfortable holster for concealment,that is equally comfortable when you drive,I would be interested in hearing your choices !
