Outside the Waist Band (OWB)   These holsters are worn on the outside of the belt.  OWB holsters can still be used as a concealed carry option as long as the correct cover garment is used.  Most of our OWB's are made with two pieces of kydex, this is referred to as a pancake.  These start at $65.00 , colors other than black with raise the price from there.   We  offer two styles of OWB holsters:  Full Cut or Minimalist Cut.  The Full cut allows adjustability in the ride height by giving you the option of re-locating your belt loops.  The Minimalist is a trimmed down version that offers a small size but no ride height adjustability.  We suggest using a gun belt for any of our holsters, but one is required when using a Minimalist style holster due to it's high center of mass. 

Full Cut OWB 

Minimalist Cut OWB 

Cant (IWB)  Another thing that influences  the grip above the belt line is cant.  Our cant options go from 0 degrees - 15 degrees forward cant.  As you rotate the pistol forward (cant), the further the end of the grip gets from the belt line.​ This makes gripping the pistol easier, but makes the width of the footprint (in relation to the belt) wider.  Our options are: 0 degrees, 10 degrees forward, and 15 degrees forward.  We also offer custom cants, sometimes the particular weapon can limit the cant options.

Deep Cover (Low Ride) 

Belt Line - The Colored lines represent the top of the belt. 

Medium Ride 

OWB Taco Paddle This is an odd creation, or at least it sounds that way.   A few customers asked for it so we made it happen.  A paddle holster is easy to attach and detach without removing your belt.  It's very handy at the range and a comfortable way to carry your weapon.  These start at $65.00 ,  colors other than black will raise the price from there.

Cant (OWB)  Cant in an OWB holster is mostly to do with preference. Some prefer the draw stroke from a canted holster.  There are some small advantages.  The forward cant can slightly reduce the distance between the muzzle and the belt line, making it easier to cover with a garment.  Though easier to cover, it also make a wider footprint that takes up more belt real estate.  Our standard is 0 cant (straight up and down), this reduces the width of the holster and lends to a more natural draw stroke.  We also offer a 5 degree , 10 degree, and custom forward cant option.

15 Degree Cant

High Ride

Inside the Waist Band (IWB)   Just as the name implies, these holsters tuck inside your waist band and the belt-clip clips over the outside of your belt.  A cover garment such as an untucked shirt, a jacket or a vest conceals this type of holster nicely.  These holsters are formed with one piece of kydex and are referred to as tacos.  IWB's start at$55.00 and color options will add to this base price.

Ride Height  Ride Height is important of all types of holsters.  It has to do with where the belt attachment connects to the holster.  Our IWB holsters come with fix ride height.   The three positions available are: High Ride, Medium Ride, and Deep Cover  (low ride).   The lower the ride height, the deeper the pistol is in your pants.  It conceals better this way, but it makes for a tougher draw.  The higher the ride, the easier it is to grip the pistol and unholster it.  Our Standard ride height is Medium. 


Sweat Shield   All of our models currently come with a full sweat shield, by request we can cut down your sweat guard to suit your needs.  The sweat guard protects your firearm from moisture where it lays against your body.  Unless specified in the additional comment section of your order, your holster will come with a full sweat shield. The additional options are: Half Sweat Shield and No Sweat Shield (flush with front). The Sweat Shield is only on the rear of the holster. 


Muzzle Cut  The look of the muzzle end of your holster is mostly personal preference on IWB's.  The more open ended your holster is, the easier it will be to clean.  The closed end holsters still have an opening for water to drain. On OWB, the closed end holsters actually have a drilled drain hole on the rear near the end of the muzzle.  Most OWB holsters have at least a semi-closed end to protect the end of the slide and barrel.  The three types of muzzle cuts offered are: Flush, Semi-Flush(Standard), and Closed End.
