These days, I carry a Glock in a Blade-Tech Phantom IWB holster. It seems that other awesome people have reached the same conclusion. It’s crazy that for $20 you can get a holster that will out-last and out-perform 99% of the leather holsters on the market. Blade Tech also makes their injection molded holsters for outside the waistband carry, and those run about $25. I use one for USPSA and IDPA, and it will also outlast any leather holster on the market. You can sew all the sharkskin/stingray hide on your leather that you want, but unless you’re buying a gun as a fashion accessory, it just doesn’t make sense to buy a leather holster when our plastic holsters are just better.
