Whether you prefer leather or polymer, plain or basketweave, double or triple retention, there's a holster out there to meet your needs. Here's a selection of holsters and holders to safely and comfortably carry your necessary gear close at hand.

5.11 Tactical

5.11 Tactical's ThumbDrive Level 2 Holster includes an exclusive thumb-activated release that secures a duty weapon and provides an extra level of officer security. 5.11's Chop-Block included attachment helps prevent others from accessing your firearm. The holster's proprietary slick-surface polymer won't wear the finish of a duty pistol and retains its shape in temperatures above 300 degrees Fahrenheit, yet remains stable in low temperatures and offers superior impact strength. The ThumbDrive Holster includes a belt slide (fits up to 2.25 inches) and paddle and is available in right- and left-handed versions for the Glock 17/22, 19/23 and 34/35, with more styles to follow in the fall.

Blackhawk's SERPA Auto Lock Duty Level 3 retention holster uses your natural drawing motion to release the weapon. When you re-holster, the SERPA Auto Lock System provides immediate security to increase officer safety. The holster is strengthened by injection-molded carbon fiber composite construction, yet it is light in weight. Your weapon will stay secure because there are no snaps or hoods that will accidentally open. You can use the same drawing technique for undercover, tactical, and duty assignments. This holster can be used with BlackHawk's new SERPA Quick Disconnect System to switch among duty, concealed, and tactical carry.

Designed for domestic and foreign operations where maximum firepower needs to be discreetly carried, the DSD from DeSantis allows the user to carry a sub-machine gun and two full-sized magazines undetected and leave both hands free. The rig features a "quick-detach" system that allows for rapid disengagement of the weapon from the rig if an extended incident engagement occurs. The rig is easily concealed under a mid-length jacket. It's mainly made from heavy-duty Mil-Spec nylon webbing and is built to be comfortable and durable. It will work with most sub-machine guns and is equipped with a magazine pouch for either 9mm or .223 caliber ammunition.

Don Hume

With the aid of Don Hume's HRTL (hidden retention trigger lock) locking device, the company's Jacket Slot Style Level 2 Security holster automatically secures a gun as it's re-holstered. A retention lock enters the trigger guard so the gun will rest safe and secure. To activate simply release the low-profile thumb break and continue moving thumb downward to release the secondary trigger guard release. With a shooter's grip, simply lift the gun straight up. To re-holster, insert gun, and push down to be sure the trigger guard lock is in place, securing the gun. A thumb break snap provides extra security.
