Holster Basics To Understand
The very basic idea behind holsters is to hold your concealed carry firearm securely in place, but in a way that is both comfortable and easily accessible. It also covers the trigger guard in order to prevent accidental discharge.
But even though all holsters are made to serve a similar purpose, not all of them are equally comfortable to carry and use. In order to be able to chose the one that will fit you and your needs best, you should first get familiar with the different holster types.
First of all, the material that a holster is made of is important. There are 3 basic materials:
- Leather – Probably the most popular material of all. Leather holsters are made to be durable, hold their shape and be comfortable. They’re also good because the material allows them to take the exact shape of the gun you’re carrying. The downside, however, is that leather is susceptible to moisture and gets worn out after some time.
- Plastic – These holsters are made to be strong, lightweight, durable and waterproof. They make it quick and easy to draw from. The downside is that they’re not as comfortable as the leather ones.
- Nylon – This is the most inexpensive option. It might not fit the exact shape of your gun model as well though. However, they’re very lightweight, easy to clean, flexible and waterproof.
Types of Holsters
Depending on what you find to be the most comfortable for you (in terms of the place of your body (or clothes) you want to keep your firearm at), there are numerous holster types that you should know of:
- Ankle Holsters

- Inside the Waistband or IWB Holster – This type goes around your waist and is secured by a clip that can be both worn on your belt or the waistband of your pants.
- Inside the Pocket Holster – This type stays flat in your pocket and is best for small, thin guns.
