One holster – two guns.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on February 12th, 2007

Today I got an email from a nice guy who’d bought a Tucker HF1 second-hand for half-price. The seller said it fit either a Beretta PX4or a Glock 19/23.

Just because you can put the gun in the holster doesn’t mean it fits.

I’m not saying don’t buy second hand, just buy the holster for the gun for which it’s made. My new friend is disappointed after thinking he had gotten a good deal. Usually, a used holster from Tucker Gunleather is a very good deal because they’re very hard to wear out.

This time the sellerwas a little too loose with the facts.

    One holster for two Glocks? OK. They are cookie-cutter guns, all made on three basic frames. Same frame, same holster, no problem.

    Personally, I would not use the same leather holster for two 1911’s. Let’s say, one has front cocking serrations and the other is smooth. The one with the front serrations will excavate the leather at the muzzle end of the holster. The other, will not. This will compromise retention for the 1911 without front serrations. Even a difference in serration type will leave you with a ‘mish-mash’ of fit and retention.

    Not only that, the only thing better than owning one HF1, has to be owning two! 😀

    The idea of trying to make a holster, which is specific to brand X, learn to be a holster for brand Y… folly, IMHO.
