I have been running the DAA PDR PRO for my Glock. It seems to hold up well. I have had zero issues with it.

What reason are you conflicted? Just brands?

just seems like too many companies are selling stuff really similar to each other. also, since carry optics is pretty new I don't know what people are using.

I have a bladetech with boss hanger for my cz production setup and I am using the same thing as I had a slide milled for carry optics.

I don't shoot CO as I'm an IPSC guy and at this point we don't have the Division ( or may never) but I think as someone said earlier any of the Production holsters will fit the bill.

The most popular would more than likely be the Bladetech and these day's you will see a lot with a hanger other than the DOH that comes from Bladetech. I use the Boss hanger on my Classic div holsters and they work as advertised.

What if I were to also use this for open division in 3 gun where I have to do a lot of running while holstered? 

 

I dont know if i  if I would trust any of my current passive retention holsters for that.

After seeing someone get DQ'ed when their rifle sling caught the butt of their pistol and lifted it up and out of the holster, I went out and got a Safariland ALS holster for my 3-gun pistol. I like having the retention and the added delay for depressing the button is negligible. Only about .2 seconds. It certainly won't make a difference in my rankings ;)

I carry a 6360 als on duty, and would love to use one...but won't clear the optics

Safariland has just released a whole new line of optic-compatible holsters. There are also a variety of other similar ones that will likely work as long as you're using a common (i.e. Glock) platform.

Yes, but I am not using a trijicon. All of safarilands stuff is geared towards the rmr and doesn't guarantee it will fit other mini red dots. 

 

The window on the trijicon is too small for my liking.

Most safariland stuff is actually geared toward the old line of Docter optics. And often need a little bit of opening with a Dremel and a sanding drum anyway.

 

What gun/optic do you have? You might have some options

Glock 17, with milled burris fastfire 3..(carver is about to melt it in)..and suppressor sights because I still carry it on occasion. No weapon light.

 

i am used to having to work on a safariland. I only use fiber optic sights, even on a duty gun..so I'm used to having to cut my clearance. I am concerned I would have to remove too much for suppressor sights, rendering the locking mechanism useless

Tighten the screws.... they should give an audible click when holstering... even to run with.

Boss/Bladetech.

 

Be sure to use some locktite on the screws.
