    I have a Beretta 9000, and my dad has suggested looking into getting a leather holster for open carry. If anyone has any suggestion as to what I should get.

    I tend to stay away from leather holsters. In my experience leather tends to be a parasite to the oils I use for lubrication. I do have a black G&G Yaqui holster for when I wear really nice clothes and I don't want a black plastic holster to clash with my attire.

    Leather holsters: Classic, pretty, large variety of finishes (texture and color), cause less weapon finish wear, exotic avail., large selection & availability, easy to custom fit - absorb oil and water, mar easier, cost more especially high quality.

    Kydex/plastic holsters: Innovative designs and retention, traditional to tacti-cool, less selection of texture and color, accelerate weapon finish wear, not avaible for some weapons, custom fitting not always possible - won't absorb oil and water, hard to scar, generally lower cost.

    Best bet is to talk to friends and "see" what they have. Most shops have a limited supply of styles from which to choose. Google and find an unlimited variety and get an overload headache - also the problem is you can't touch 'em before buying.

    You make your choice and pay your money.

    I haven't seen any leather belt holsters that I would OC with. Too easy to snatch n' grab. Finding a 'plastic' holster for a 9k might be a bit hard to find though!
