I have carried a couple of different holsters in both iraq and afghanistan to include cheap and expensive kydex belt and drop leg holsters. For kydex belt holster I am partial to Garret industries since I like the leather lining. I think it's a great deal considering how much some companies want for a plain kydex holsters these days. For leather I am partial to Tucker gun leather. I would also recommend a quality gun belt. I use Wilderness 5 stitch for everyday wear and I have a Tactical Tailor for a duty belt.
