Holster Recommendations

Looking to see what you guys recommend for pistol and magazine holsters. Being brand new to the whole firearm scene, I'm not really sure which way to go when purchasing these accessories. Do you recommend leather, plastic, or soft sided to hold your weapon? Would one of these be more prone to scratching the gun with repeated removal from the holster? If I go with plastic, do you think they'd accommodate an accessory rail should I decide to put one on?

What about for the magazines? I was thinking it would be nice to have a holder for range days to keep a couple of full clips ready to go when shooting since I have 5 clips that came with it - might as well make use of them.

Does anyone have any brands they prefer, a website they usually buy accessories from, anything that you'd suggest. What do you guys think?

Oh - it'd be for my Sig Pro 2009 if the holsters suggested are model specific.

Unless you plan on parading around your house with the gun in your holster or are planning on joining some leagues, don't rush to be spending alot of money on such accessories as not many ranges allow you to have a gun holstered.

Sorry no recommendations on any, but if you look around, holster recommendations were discussed not that long ago.

Everything to need should you join a league or move to a non-retarded state.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I had an MTAC and a CTAC for my Kimber. Sold the CTAC, still have the MTAC (for when I replace the Kimber with a Baer/Wilson/Brown someday) The MTAC was a bit more comfy with the leather backing.

For the Glock 20, I'm using the CTAC. As comfy, if not moreso than the 1911 w/ MTAC. (which was all day comfy itself) There's something to be said for sans- beavertail pistols.

Hello, I use a 5.11 Blade-tech set up (holster, belt and 4 mag pouches) for competition match for my 1911. I have a Kydex for my Sig in case I use next time. But there's also Blackhawk, CR, Fobus(not sure if they're good). These are plastic except some Blackhawk models are carbon fibre. Leather holster will wear out your gun finish overtime. I want to get a Blackhawk Serpa next time, CR inner and outer belt. Hope this helps. Around the house holster? go Miami Vice style.

My one and only holster is still attached to my LBV and I have been out since 2000.

Not really needed unless you are doing competition.

I use a cross breed supertuck, I like it for the two days I've been wearing it.

Any recommendations on magazine holsters? Any material preferences?

Update:

I talked to my neighbor who I purchased the Sig from, told him what I was looking for and he actually had some stuff to help me out with. He had a class 2 OWB paddle type holster that he didn't use, but couldn't give up since he needed a back up. However, he was able to hook me up with an IWB neprene type that fits the gun perfectly. He also had his police issue mag holder with a broken closure snap so he couldn't use it anymore. I took that one from him, cut off the straps and the holders themselves could hold the magazines very tightly, even upside down and shaking it. Got what I was looking for, ended up being police quality, and cost the full amount of $0.00. Works for me!

For $80 that CTAC holster better be damn comfy. But I trust your recomandation and when I get my XDm9 I'll also order the CTAC.
