    Default IDPA Holster

    Shot my first round of IDPA last week with some borrowed gear from a forum member here. I liked it enough that I'm looking for recomendations for a holster and mag carriers. I think I'm going to go with single mag carriers for now. I'll need a RH holster for a G29 and a 1911. Both guns are chambered in 10mm.

    So what do you you guys like ? I've seen a Uncle Mike's Kydex for the 1911 at my LGS for 28 but I'm not real sure about the quality.
    Steel Valley Casting is your source for hard cast and powder coated bullets.

    Depending on your budget, ComTac or Bladetec holsters are very popular. The 1911 is easy, lots of holsters out there. BlackHawk makes level 1 holsters that would fill the bill also.
    Don't know enough about Glocks but, I imagine a holster that fits a Glock .40 in it's respective size would probably work. Uncle Mikes would be ''ok'' as long as it covers the trigger. I'm not familiar with their Kydex holsters.
    I use the Blackhawk double mag carriers. You don't have to have expensive gear to compete and have fun.

    10mm? I hope your reloading and have easy access to brass, your going to need it.
    When I shoot IDPA, I usually shoot my carry setup. Great practice. USPSA is another story.

    Holster and mag pouches for IDPA specifically -

    As mentioned, check out Comp Tac or Blade Tech holsters.

    Uncle Mikes are crap, they do not hold up to the repeated and fast draws required for IDPA.

    When I shot IDPA I used a Bladetech. I use a Bladetech currently for USPSA.

    I too use a bladetech. The drop offset is IDPA legal , and so I use it for production in USPSA or IDPA and just tek lock it on the belt.

    I give you credit for using 10mm in IDPA

    I love Blade tech holsters. Their OWB is what I use for my M&P and 1911. I also like the Fobus paddle double mag carriers.

    Blade tech also makes an IDPA package with their Revolution line of holsters/carriers - price is excellent too
