Looking for thoughts and recommendations on best P320 XSeries/X5 Legion Competition Holster.

 

- DAA Alpha-X Holster

- Comp-Tac Holster

- Blade-Tech Holster

- Any other?

 

Currently using the DAA Alpha-X Holster with my Limited.  No issues.

 

Borrowed a Comp-Tac Holster, used it a couple times seems to work pretty good.

 

Thanks for your help in advance!

I have all my of the ones listed except DAA and GX is my choice hands down.  To me, being able to lock your gun in during a walk-through you’re not having to hold it in place with one hand it was a complete game changer.

Same here.  GX Products link.  You can design your own holster colors (inside and out) and what hanger you prefer.  A bit of a lead time as they are super busy.

What is it you guys do during a walkthrough that you require to lock down a gun into a bucket holster?

 

Having said that I have Comptac, DAA Alpha X, and currently use a 4 Bros holster for my X5. All of them work fine and to be honest I don't really have a preference over any of them, just what I feel like using on the day..

I lock mine down when I am ROing. I don’t see any reason to during a walk through though.

I've been shooting and RO'ing IPSC for nearly 20 years now including WS's and Regional and National Championship's and I can honestly say I've never seen a gun come out of a kydex type holster, a few out of the different race holster's, mostly due to either user error or people clashing holsters when wandering around, which in the end is user error anyway.

For me it's less about the walkthrough and more about assisting with resetting the stage - especially bending to reset poppers or picking up plates, etc.

Most bucket style kydex holsters like GX or RHT, the gun will bounce out if you have to run any faster than a slow jog. They just don’t have very good retention compared to say, bladetech

Im not so sure. the GX Products holster with the cam lock can be set pretty tight.

Sometimes I like to come in to a position at speed, sometimes decelerating to decide where to start slowing down, sometimes to do a drop step vs regular exit, and list could go on.  Before GX, I held my gun in place a lot.   YMMV

Exactly.   It won’t come out when locked even if I hold it upside down.

I’m talking about when the cam is off. 

The only time I take mine off is when I am told to make ready.... just like when you use a race holster in Limited  or Open.

Redhill, or redhill, might look at redhill also.

I have one and it's nice - fits the Legion with the aftermarket thumbrest.   The GX appeals to me though and I'm going to try it and likely sell the RHT.

I have a red river tactical (not to be confused with red hill tactical) advanced cut holster for my legion and I really love the holster. Build quality is on par with anything I have owned before, and black multicam looks sweet!

Interesting. With my RHT I can dial in enough retention to be completely annoying if tried to draw.

 

I could bounce around like a bunny rabbit (ok I'm too old to bounce) and my gun stays secure.
