Top 3 things to look for in a leather pistol holster

If you're a gun owner, finding the right leather pistol holster is crucial for carrying your firearm safely and comfortably. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to choose the right one. Legion Leather thinks the below items are the top three things to look for when shopping for a leather pistol holster.


  1. Quality of materials of the leather holster - The first thing you should consider when shopping for a leather pistol holster is the quality of the materials. A good leather holster should be made of high-quality leather that is thick, durable, and able to withstand wear and tear. The stitching should be tight and reinforced to ensure that the holster holds up over time. In addition to the leather itself, you should also pay attention to the hardware used in the holster. The snaps, rivets, and other metal components should be made of high-quality materials that won't rust or break over time. A good holster will also have a sturdy clip or loop that attaches securely to your belt or waistband.
  1. Comfort and Fit of your holster - Another important factor to consider when shopping for a leather pistol holster is comfort and fit. The holster should fit your gun securely, without too much play or wiggle room. This will prevent the gun from moving around in the holster, which can be both uncomfortable and unsafe. In addition to a secure fit, the holster should also be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Look for a holster with a smooth interior that won't rub or chafe against your skin. The holster should also be designed in a way that distributes the weight of the gun evenly across your waistband or belt.
  2. Accessibility and concealment of the holster - Finally, you should consider the accessibility and concealment of the holster. A good holster should allow you to access your gun quickly and easily, without having to fumble or adjust the holster. Look for a holster with a well-designed opening that allows you to quickly draw your gun when needed. At the same time, you'll also want a holster that is designed for concealment. The holster should fit snugly against your body, without printing or showing through your clothing. A good holster will also have a low profile and be designed to blend in with your clothing, so you can carry your gun discreetly.
