"Best holster" is a very broad term, happy. It depends so very much on circumstances of carry, body shape, and personal preference. I certainly have my favorites but I daresay others would reject those choices for the very reasons I like them. For example, I am very fond of paddle holsters because I need to put on or remove my weapon so often during the day. I find them extremely convenient. The best paddle I've ever seen is the MSP made by Kramer. It's expensive ($145.00 in horsehide), but the most comfortable holster I've ever used. I usually find IWB holsters uncomfortable to wear, though I've encountered one I will use when I carry a J-frame .38. That's the Bianchi 100 Professional. Belt holsters are great if the clothing being worn will allow them to be used. I like the PS-6 made by Mernickle Leather in Nevada. It's light, handy, and secure.
