TAMPA, FLORIDA — A man with a valid concealed carry license was escorted out of the theater by police following a patron reported someone handling a firearm in the theater.When Tampa Police arrived, according to WFLA-8, they escorted the gentleman out of the theater and determined that he had retrieved his pistol after it fell out of its holster.  After reviewing that he had a valid concealed carry license, authorities released him.This whole event pretty much ballooned outward because a concealed carrier couldn’t maintain control over his firearm.

Still amazes me that somebody will spend $500 or much more on a gun and then only $20 on a generic nylon holster.

“But Miguel, we are not made of money like you! (yeah right) We cannot afford a custom leather holster or even a good bran Kydex!” Well Junior, you can afford a Fobus, right? They are under $30 and with a wee bit of modification, you can make it so your gun does not decide to take a vacation at the local burger place in front of SWAT team having lunch at that moment. Here is an old post where I show the mods I did to a Fobus to accept my FNP-9. And I did something similar for a home-made holster for the wife’s Sibari’s Side bag.

You are now officially out of excuses.

  1. A million times yes. My first gun was a Beretta Px4 subcompact 9mm pistol. Knowing the importance of a good holster, and knowing about retention, I still managed to find a decent, cost-effective ($30) Tagua holster fitted for the pistol. Most common pistols have decently-priced fitted holsters available for them these days. No excuse.

  2. Maybe he should try Tuco’s style of carry. At least it won’t fall out of a holster that way,

  3. $70 is not that much money- many of us oldtimers can remember weeping tears of joy if a preban mag cost only $70.
    There’s a lot of good, semi-custom holsters on the market for $70 or so.

  4. Alien Gear. Leather/Kydex combo holsters in the $30-45 range.

    That said, does anyone know where to find a decent Galco-like shoulder holster that doesn’t cost $150+?
