    Hi everyone,

    What do you all think of Blade Tech Holsters? Looking for my first "nice" holster for my Makarov. I like that they are local, but the gun is unique enough, I can't just go to the store and try it out. I would need to order online.

    Looking for something for OWB carry, but also I can use for some training I'm taking that has the following requirement.

    Holster: Please have a good quality holster that allows for easy reholstering. Leather, plastic or stiff nylon holsters are recommended. Soft fabric, collapsible holsters are not suitable for these events.

    Thanks!

    I've never tried Blade Tech, but I have a Bianchi 7 that I really like. The 5 is nice too. Nice leather, great fit, well designed. Both have a strap for retention.

    Blade Tech is a great holster and well made. Reasonable priced and local. They are in Puyallup. If you can't find what you want call them and they can likely make it for you.

    I wore a blade tech for a while and the one I had for my G27 didn't keep it as tucked in close to my body as my desantis does for my G23. The holster was all in all great other than that.

    They are good holsters, I have had them for my XDm, Kimber and old Glock. Bladetech OWB keeps the firearm close. I now prefer a high quality leather holsters over kydex.

    I have Blade-Tech holsters that are over ten years old and show no wear. They fit fine, have good retention and are heavy duty. My opinion is that the older ones are better as they have thicker kydex and the belt loops are fixed and strong as hell.

    Thanks everyone. Appreciate the help!

    Skang, can you tell me about that belt (brand, where you can buy one, etc.) in the pictures?

    I met "What's His Name", the guy that founded Blade Tech at the 2002 SHOT Show I had just gotten a Glock with the original Crimson Trace laser installed. So I was telling What's His Name I needed a holster and he gives me his wife's Glock Holster. I have used that holster for a decade in all temps and conditions, I love it!
