Gun Holsters are generally designed to offer ready access and protect the weapon. Firearm holsters are used daily by military personnel, police, security guards, and in some instances by civilians depending on the governing laws of the state. Gun holsters come in many shapes, materials, levels of retention, and sizes. There are three basic holster categories; duty holsters, concealment, and sporting type. The type of holsters used depends on the varying circumstances in which the firearm is used.

Uniformed security and police officers who carry their guns openly generally use a retention holster. These types of holsters incorporate a level or levels of retention. Straps or flaps that hold the firearm in place and prevent the officer from being disarmed are most common. Duty holsters are available with varying retention levels (i.e., Level I, Level II, Level III). A higher retention level makes it more difficult for someone to remove the firearm from your holster but may also slow the time it takes to draw the ...

Concealment holsters are made to be easily worn out of sight. They are generally compact, lightweight, easily concealable, and designed to be worn under clothing. The belt and paddle holster are among the most common concealment holsters. Other concealment holster options include the shoulder holster, ankle holster, belly band, fanny pack, small of the back holster, inside-the-waistband holster (sometimes referred to as IWB holster), pocket holster, and many variations of each.

Sporting holsters vary depending on the sport. If speed is necessary, you would want to have a gun holster designed for a quick draw and not necessarily for retention. If hunting is your thing, then gun retention will be a concern, especially if you are in densely wooded areas where your gun may get snagged on a branch.

As you can see, gun holsters come in many variations. It would help if you considered your purpose for the holster before purchasing. It is not uncommon for gun owners to own several holsters to accommodate their carrying needs. Talk to your gun broker if you need to carry suggestions.
