Open holsters

Recommended Posts

Hi I've been running an older limcat holster for several years but am leary of being aggressive with it for fear of bumping it out. What holsters is everybody running? I tried a cr speed and didnt really like it. I had thought about adding a magnet to mine to add a little retention. Thnks.

Everglades is a copy of original Finnish SLB holster.

I started with a DAA RaceMaster and moved to an Alpha-X.  It is a comfortable holster with compromises.  I got tired customizing or changing blocks to accomodate different grips.  I went with an Everglades holster.  I had to make a very simple and quick mod to accommodate one of my guns, and now one holster works perfectly with my poly grip guns, all steel grip guns and my custom 1911 Open gun for SCSA.

I have used cr speed and also the Alpha X  I like the Alpha X because I can switch between my primary gun and backup gun.

I also like the cr speed but switching between guns is not as easy

I started with a Racemaster and am now using an Alpha X. It seems to work pretty good but I also like to tinker so I think I might jump on the Everglades bandwagon after seeing a couple at nationals.

That Everglades is looking real nice. I'd like to try one. I like the way my limcat draws but I would like it to have a little more retention.

I've been using a Safariland 011 for over 20 years.  Love it.  My wife and son both use CR speeds and they really like those.  When it comes time to get a new holster, I'll probably get an 014.

I've been using a Guga Ribas for my CZ open guns and a TSO in Limited.  I have a second holder that I just adjusted for a Atlas.  If the draw is not smooth with the Atlas I will be looking at ordering a Everglades.  A buddy of mine runs one and loves it.

I was until I got curious about the 2011 platform and went in search of an Atlas Titan.  Found one pretty quickly on an old ad here and now I have more Limited guns than I need.  TS, TSO and an Atlas.  Of the 200 rounds that I have run through it so far, it is way ahead of the STI Edge that I had a few years ago.  The PT Evo grip that is on the gun makes it feel very familiar to the CZ grips with the contouring.

I tried the Alpha-X and liked it. On the advice of some earlier threads here, I then tried the Everglades MRH. It's better in every way, as long as you're shooting a 2011.

Another vote for Everglades here. Used a Double Alpha and am very happy with the Everglades.

I really like the Universal Shooting Academy holster.  I switched from the cr speed.  Locks in well, and the draw is very smooth.  It has a very cool roller magnet set up.  I occasionally get it hung up when I'm not tidy and pull it forward a tad on the draw (not the holsters fault) but other than that it is fantastic.

They look extremely similar and I've been told Everglades made them for USA...

No.  The Universal came before.  Everglades was asked to copy it when no longer available.  There are differences.  For example, the Everglades requires modification for use with Cheely e2 grips.  The Universal does not.

CR Speed for me. I use their belt, mag pouches and holster for Open and Limited. Revolver it's their belt and holster. It's just bomb proof gear. The finger index on the mag pouches and easy adjustability are fantastic. The holster is very adjustable, super secure and once the lever is locked the gun isn't going to fall off the holster under any circumstances. Everyone has their favorite and I guess the division you shoot plays a role but buy once with CR Speed and move on. Best is a personal opinion, many manufacturers make high quality gear and CR Speed is one of them.
