So I’ve seen this video from Active Self protect over the years. He sets up criteria for a “safe” holster. Hybrid holsters do not fit his category. (I actually disagree with some of his points here, he went off on the alien gear without the right info, but I also he made a video calling alien gear bad for no good reason. I’m not a huge fan of his channel. He rants a lot, but he does have some good content).
I am actually looking at getting a cross breed OWB holster on sale. What are the thoughts on OWB Hybrid holsters? Crossbreed has a sale. They make good quality products. I just wanted to discuss hybrid OWB in general.
I would not bat an eye at an IWB hybrid holster. I have no reservations about using one. They do have some disadvantages, but none that make these holsters obsolete. They are very secure and comfortable. The OWB holster is interesting.
What features do you look at in a holster to be safe?
I do look at retention, I want the gun to not fall out when being shaken. I want the trigger covered, but I don’t flip out if there’s a small space in the back (watch the video and you’ll understand what I mean), holster needs to stay securely on my belt. If there’s screws, I monitor and loctite as needed.
