I didn't care for the thumb lever. I prefer to use my index when I draw. I did however like the fact that they spaced the gun away from your body to allow a comfortable draw. With the Blackhawk, depeding on your personal frame you can add spacers to give you more room if need be.

I also found my shirt covered the thumb latch, and caused some hesitation. I use these for Open Carry so I don't ever place my shirt over my gun. I don't care to have my shirt tucked in, i do slightly tuck my shirt just in the region closest to the gun.

I also like the extra hooks that help to hold the holster to your clothes with or without a belt the blackhawk can be used.

These are just my opinions.

You should look at Crossbreed Holsters. I carry a Glock 27 all day every day (15 to 18 hours) and it is by far the most functional and comfortable concealed carry holster that I have ever purchased...and I have a closet full of shit that is useless for concealed carry including 2 ankle holsters by 2 different manufacturers.

Since the thread asks the question what holster do you use for open carry, I assume that you use the ankle holster while wearing shorts?

I don't open carry very often. When I do it is in whatever holster I have for the particular gun I am carrying. I've liked BladeTech stuff a lot recently.

I was not looking to learn bout holsters, I have mine already. I was curious about what all of you out there use. Just wanting to see how people carry.
The reason I have the Generic pic in the fist post is because I am offshore and they would have a stroke if I brought my gun and holster out here to take pics to cause chat on the net.

I have no specific task in mind just everyday Open carry and I mean just that, a pistol strapped to you hip while at the store and walking in town.
For me I find my holster does all I need, I have a few others but recently purchased the one pictured. This one sped up my draw and has a lock so as no one can get it from me. P.s. I carry my XD9 both open and concealed, 16+1.

Here in Cali open carry is a rare occasion. I usually carry in a Fobus paddle for open carry. I love Desantis speed scabbard for concealed carry. Happy shooting.

Here in vegas i usually use a basic soft belt holster for open carry unless im going out shooting at which point i use my drop holster. it sits perfectly on my thigh to where my hand can rest on the gun if i leave my arm in a normal position.
