How to Choose Your Holster for class

 The holster needs to:

1,handgun stays in the holster when it is supposed to.

2, Cover the entire trigger guard.

3, Stay open so you can re-holster with one hand.

The Fobus is inexpensive and sufficient for the class but not one you will want to use daily.

Blade-Tech can also be found locally at Top Brass on Hwy 59 South in Stafford.

A little more expensive, but good for any training you may take; the Tech-lok belt attachment is handy to

 I DO NOT recommend a Black Hawk Serpa or any holster that has a mechanical lock that uses the trigger finger to release.
