    I've been thinking (I know, dangerous) lately about a holster borrow thread like we had when the handgun barrel locks were needed. It seems that guys whom have been carrying for a while have a lot of different holsters. This may be an opportunity for guys to unload some unwanted holsters or help a fellow member out with selection.
    I understand that most holsters are not expensive and to spend money on shipping to just try may not make sense on a $30 holster. However, if said members are close to each other's location for one reason or another then it makes a lot of sense.
    This thread would likely need to be a sticky to work so the questions goes out to all. Let the Boss know what you think with a thoughtful reply.

    Lefty here. I thought we had one of these threads somewhere on here, but just in case I am wrong, I am looking for a LH AIWB/IWB for a G43x/48 to try, trade, borrow or buy.

    I have a Blackhawk_Stache IWB for a G19 if anyone is interested. This is also for a lefty.

    You have spares.. so.. can I borrow one?
    They aren't spares. I have 4 or 5 and I rotate them. Belts should be rotated like shoes.
    No one needs to borrow a belt. You get a KORE or NEXBELT brand ratchet belt and call it a day.

    I'm interested in any type of holster for the LCP 380 MAX
    Yesterday was my first day out and about with my lil’max. I picked up a holster last Friday at chantilly for it.30 bucks. The package says Omni holster on one side and usgungear on the other. I tried finding it online but no-go. It’s made out of a similar foamy material like the pocket holster that came with the max, but has a belt clip on both sides of the pistol. It kept it secure appendix carrying/slight left shift, all day running around doing errands and in/out of the car, and I near forgot it was there. It’s just comfortable enough to not fidget with it, but more than nice that it’s there.I will try to figure out posting pics here…….I’m new

    If I sell a gun, I usually wide up throwing the holster(s) into the deal as some “lagniappe” if I takes a liking the person across from me.

    I picked up a basic CYA Supply kydex for the LCP Max. It's the only one I'm using for the Max now and comfortable enough to negate pocket carry in the warmer months. I did swap out the bulky plastic clip that came with the CYA for a monoblock clip. The monoblock secures on the belt nicely and is much lower profile on the belt than the plastic.

    I think this is a great idea. Before i took my carry class the only holster i had was a drop leg military holster for my 92 or 1911. I have a few pistols that work but no holster so i had to buy one in a hurry. This would have let me use one for the class until i could get approved for the permit and get one
