    Good stuff

    The serious CCW will go through an evolution, it kinda just happens

    The more we study the more learn that it is less about what gear can do and more about what we can do

    The persons mind and body will always be the real weapons, everything else is supplemental

      with the advent of striker fired handguns and kydex holsters in particular, they create a combination were the holster becomes the safety. When holster to gun is secure and trigger is protected. Out of the holster its in kill mode. I have a couple cheap nylon IWB holsters but I much prefer kydex if I had the choice. The comfort of the nylon IWB holsters is hard to beat so I still use them a majority of the time..

        Gotta agree, MSF pistols and kydex holsters were giant leaps forward

          They holster should be made specifically for the gun we carry and made of kydex. To many +'s and minimal -'s, to no -'s not to use kydex compared to other holster materials. The same with MSF handguns. If someone is using something other than this combo it's definately not a choice based on performance.

          Nylon is sketchy. It doesn't hold the gun well or protect the trigger adequately in comparison.

            Deerhunter, I am a leather guy, but found Crossbreed let me do a kydex outer shell comfortably. If you donít like it, they will eat it. The seem to get better with time though.

              Why do you prefer leather?

                  Nothing to do with performance?

                      Holding the gun or do your expectations go further than that? What is the job they perform?

                        I gave deerhunter an opinion, then offered a real world personal experience suggestion that is better than his current nylon.

                        No no need to banter with you as I will be wrong because I donít agree with you 100% of the time.

                          Tom, you don't seem to understand yet. 'Real world' doesn't count, no matter how well it works, if it goes against TMK's philosophy, opinion. or theories.

                          Also, it seems you are starting to get it. Come over to the 'Yes Master' side, and you will be--I dunno--accepted as a true believer?

                          In the FWIW column, I prefer leather, too. It has always worked BITD, and still does. Ace2

                          Sometimes the term 'Idiot' is a description and not an insult.

                            The leather holsters I've looked at seem rather bulky for IWB

                            Given that the CCW is about a bazillion times more likely to get in a punch-kick-rolling around on the ground fight than he is a gunfight unless the leather holster has some type of formed liner sandwiched in or retention straps, which in my opinion are suicidal for CCW I believe Kydex will hold the pistol in place better than leather

                              It's an issue of maintenance and longevity as well as the performance issues you've stated. These things also influence the safety of the one utilizing the holster.

                              When we make recommendations it should be expected that we back then up with thorough explanations why so that others can make an informed decision based on facts/truths/evidence/performance in context or whatever else is needed.

                              It has worked in my very limited experience in situations or events having little to nothing to do with the context in which the person is looking for recommendations will lead to bad decisions, disappointment, or illpreparedness (making up words I think). Dealing with the topic we are being illprepared could mean death. Take your recommendations seriously or stop making them.

                              I get and appreciate that people are trying to help but we need to understand the importance of the subject matter.
