Holsters are designed to be used with specific handguns. Therefore, purchase your gun first and then purchase the holster for it.
Ideally, the holster will carry the handgun in a secure and stable manner but still allow the handgun to be readily accessible. There are various types of holsters. Some holsters:
- Only encompass a portion of the handgun.
- Encompass the entire handgun.
- Have a single means for restraining, while others have multiple means of restraining the handgun.
