Whether you need leather or kydex, inside-the-waistband or crossdraw, you’ve come to the right place for holster reviews.

Many of the holsters that we review are designed for concealed carry. However, some of them are suitable for open carry or even competition. If you are looking for information on law enforcement duty holsters, make sure you check out our sister site, BlueSheepdog.com.There are some duty holster reviews there.

  • Dara Holsters- Relatively new to the shooting market, Dara Holsters offers rugged Kydex scabbards in a variety of forms for concealed carry and duty use. I review the custom IWB and OWB offerings.
  • DeSantis Nemesis Review- We review the Nemesis pocket holster. There have been several updates to the design. In the original design, we found a couple of problems, which wound up being corrected in the next version. A review of both versions is included in this article.
  • Diamondback AM2 Holster Resource – I’ve assembled a complete list of concealed carry holsters for the Diamondback AM2 pistol. The list has grown over time, and I’ve done my best to stay on top of the rigs available for this pistol.

  • Safariland 578 GLS Pro-Fit- I review the newest concealed carry scabbard from Safariland. This holster has an active retention system but is not a “security” holster designed for duty carry. The price on this is surprisingly low.
  • SIG Sauer P250 Holsters – This article is a round-up piece on a wide range of options for carrying the SIG P250. This is a huge resource article with all kinds of holsters shown for the handgun.
