    I'm a fan of leather. It just feels better and looks better to me.

    I like leather because it breaths and it's natrual.

    Leather is better looking, and not as rough on the firearm. Most important..... John Wayne never used a plastic holster. :rolleyes:

    It may be for the wrong reasons, but I would no more use a plastic holster that a ready made bow tie.

    Thing is they are both fine, it's just that I am a bit old school.

    Leather, because it has character.

    use a serpa double retention for work (though sometimes only use one of them-pending the call i'm responding to), and prefer the plastic for work purposes, but overall, like the leather, especially for concealed/off-duty
