What Holsters Do People Own, And Which Ones Do They Actually Use? The Poll Results Are In From Reddit…


If you’re a concealed carrier with an internet connection (which obviously, you are), a great resource to the community is found over at the /CCW subreddit… on Reddit. It’s full of concealed carriers, over 27,000 and counting, who engage in daily conversation on the topic.

The content is pretty great, and this is always something of interest in this group.

One of the latest things to come from this subreddit is an excellent survey taken by real-life concealed carriers. You know, people just like you and I.

The survey was carried out by one of the subreddit moderators in reddit.com/r/CCW, and we can’t thank him enough for putting this survey together.

The questions were simple:

#1: What brands of holster do you own?

#2: What brand of holster do you actually use for carry?

Now, the results are in. What the results show are not only how many users own certain holsters, but whether or not they actually use those holsters they own. To view larger images, simply click on them to expand.




As people who carry concealed, we are often plagued with the question of “Which holster should I get for my firearm?” If you’re a normal concealed carrier, chances are you have a drawer filled with holsters, many of which you’re unsure of what to do with because for whatever reason… they didn’t fit your criteria as a useful holster in your particular situation.

We all have different needs and wants when it comes to choosing a proper holster, and generating a collection of holsters is really just part of the process until we find that one holster to fit our individual needs.

The point is; you’re never really going to know what holster is best for you until you actually try it, but data like this can definitely help get on the right track.
