Paddle Holster FAQ

What is a Paddle Holster?

A paddle holster is an outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster designed for easy and convenient carry of semi-automatic pistols and revolvers. It features a paddle-like attachment that slides between your waistband and body, providing a secure and comfortable fit.

How to Wear a Paddle Holster?

To wear a paddle holster, simply slide the paddle attachment between your waistband and body on the side of your preference. The holster will securely hold your firearm close to your body, allowing for easy access and comfortable carrying.

Paddle Holster vs Belt Holster: What's the Difference?

While both paddle holsters and belt holsters are designed for OWB carry, they differ in their attachment methods. Paddle holsters utilize a paddle-like attachment that slides between the waistband and body, providing easy on-and-off functionality. Belt holsters, on the other hand, attach directly to your belt and offer a more traditional method of carry.

What is the best paddle holster?

The best paddle holsters are always custom made from premium, functional, and durable materials - leather, nylon, or kydex. They also have to be equipped with a durable rotary paddle, which will allow you to adjust the holster’s cant and ride height. Last but not least, they are also molded exactly for your firearm model. Among the top paddle OWB holsters we offer are:

  1. Paddle Holster w Tension Screw
  2. Kydex Paddle Holster
  3. Paddle Holster w Mag Pouch

How to break in a paddle holster?

If you get one of our custom paddle holsters, it’s highly likely you won’t need to do any break-in. However, in case your new holster feels a bit too tight, just follow our Break-in Guide. And if you don’t have any break-in solution at hand, feel free to get our Small Break-in Kit, which comes with everything you need for a successful holster break-in.
