What style of holster should you buy? Holsters 101

When it comes to choosing a holster, there are so many options it can quickly become overwhelming.  There are so many different thing to consider: IWB vs. OWB, leather vs. synthetic, off the shelf vs. custom made.  The list goes on and on.  Of course you have to also consider your gun model and type as well as your personal preference and style.  If you aren't sure about what holster you would like to purchase, you should check out this guide I found over at PoliceOne.com.  What is your personal preference?  Let us know in the comments.


  • I have a Relentless holster that carries my S&W 642 beautifully (IWB). I can also carry the newer Kimber K6s with a 3" barrel in it, but just barely; if I push just a little, the very end of the barrel protrudes through the bottom. Any suggestions about another Relentless IWB holster that might accommodate the longer barrel of this Kimber better?
