Custom Paddle Holster


Dear Wise OB members and contributors,

I usually use Bladetech for custom holsters but I am in a bit of a bind right now. For whatever reason they do not yet offer a holster with the specific set of attributes I am looking for.

I would like a paddle holster than can accommodate my 5" M&P Core with a TLR-1s attached and my Trijicon RMR mounted on the slide. A standard M&P Pro Series 5" holster with more room for a light attachment should be enough but I can't find one of those either.


I don't open carry much but when I'm in the woods I like to have an easily-accessible handgun on me no matter what. And since 4-legged season is approaching, I would like to get an order in so my holster can be built in time.

What says the OB?

Will a kydex manufacturer make what you want?

Not sure if they can make it in time or not but Savoy Leather can make just about anything you need. Not to mention they make the best looking holsters for a pistol that I have ever seen.

That looks perfect Gaston.

Thanks for the link! This is why this board is the best; one response and found what I was looking for.



EDIT: Teyeger those are some beautiful holsters. But I feel I'm going to be fairly rough on this one, especially if I take a class with my pistol in the future. Kydex should work just fine.

That doesn't appear to be a paddle holster.

What makes a "paddle" holster a "paddle" holster? I've been wondering about that.

The paddle refers to the piece that holds it in place when on your person.

re: Custom Paddle Holster


So anything with a piece against your flesh would be a paddle?

It lists it in the drop down option "belt size" as "OWB pancake."

Pretty sure that's the same thing unless my semantics are wrong?

Yea, that's where I ended up when starting out looking for a paddle holster. I went with the OWB snap over the belt loops at 10 degree, I also added the skinny guy bend to it.



I thought I really wanted the pancake style so I could pull it off easily, but after looking at every holster I could find I didn't think they were tight enough to my body or secure enough in the 10 degree position for me. Like they would be all floppy, even with a tight belt.

I liked how high this rides and how smooth the profile ends up being with all of the kydex. I also thought it matched the high tech look of my plastic gun and the no safety aspect of it. It just snaps into the holster with no thumb break or trigger depressor or anything. I think it'll be great.




I got the low cut since I won't wear it IWB, and just for reference my gun's not ugly like a glock.

This is what they call their pancake wings...
