To the best of my knowledge....No, the State doesnt have a minimum holster requirement.
Many of the members here, DO prefer some type of retention holster in the
event of a gun grab.
Spend some time looking,trying and wearing different types that fit your side arm
BEFORE you buy.
And keep in mind that just because it was made to fit your sidearm....doesnt mean it was made to fit you/your body.
Also keep in mind that just because its some elite tacticool brand and expensive doesnt mean its worth anything.
If your side arm is parkerized and your concerned about its appearence avoid a kydex holster. You will get quite abit of holster wear from the plastic.
Leather is good....but not the best thing for those striker fired pistols with no safety.
Look a few thread pages back,A guy had an AD while puttin his seat belt on.
Oh...an if ya find a kydex paddle holster for a full size 1911 that doesnt bite,pinch or jab
while it has a cocked and locked full size 1911 in it....let me know.
Why I still own a paddle holster after a 4.5 hour bike trip...I dont know.
