    Leather looks great, but you can't beat plastic for speed. There's at least one holster maker out there that makes holsters with plastic on the inside and leather on the outside.

    ...and vice versa. Check out Tucker Gun Leather's The Answer with leather lining.

    I use both. I find their functionality to be about the same. Just make sure you get a leather holster from a reputable holster company. This way you know they are using good leather and treating it properly.

    Leather, of course. Two. One brown. One black.

    A gentleman never wears a brown holster after 6:00pm.
