    Question does it matter what holster u use to oc

    I was wondering if someone could tell me if it matters what kind of holster you use to oc and if it does what kind would you recommend?

    Welcome aboard OCDO.

    There are no legal requirements dictating what type/style holster one must use for OC.

    Most prefer either a belt slide or paddle with some active retention. Some choose traditional leather, other are partial to kydex.

    I normally OC one of my 1911s in a belt slide Blackhawk Serpa CQC - works for me.

    Everybody, and I mean everybody, swears by those Blackhawks. Which is why I don't own one. I'm a rebel without a clue.... or is that a cause? Either way, I bought myself a paddle holster under the pretense that there are areas where we cannot open carry and therefore my firearm would be left in my car (inside a locked container, do not leave firearms lying around your vehicles!)... the more I've carried the more I've realized it's pointless to remove my whole set up every time I have to enter 'the forbidden land'... I wear my holster everywhere now and only remove my gun.
