Should I get a leather or a nylon holster?
“Leather holsters are quieter, less reactive to heat and cold, and less likely to chafe and irritate the skin or abrade clothing. Leather ‘gives,’ where nylon can ‘give too much,’ and polymers and plastics are too rigid for comfort.”
— Shooting Industry Magazine, June 2010.
Additionally, most of our Triple K brands holsters are cut, sewn, and wet molded to fit specific gun models and barrel lengths. This creates a well fitted holster that minimizes friction points that rubs on your gun’s finish, as well as providing a secure gun with no excess movement in the holster. On the other hand, nylon holsters are often more comfortable (at least initially), and offer a lower price point.
Should I get a lined or an unlined leather holster?
Unlined holsters are practical for most uses, and budgets. Suede lined holsters offer a softer interior to help protect your gun’s finish, which is especially useful for expensive handguns and collector’s pieces, but they don’t hold up as well as the smooth leather lined styles and they can be compromised by extended use and moisture. Smooth, leather lined holsters (like the #040) reduce friction and allow for a faster draw. Some of the leather lined holsters also offer the added benefit of a built-in insert to adjust the holster’s fit. All lined holsters maintain their shape better over the years. Because lined holsters take twice the materials and a lot more labor, they do cost considerably more than their unlined counterparts.
Here are pictures to help you see the difference between lined and unlined holsters.
Notice stitching around the mouth of the Lined holster on the left.

Inside of the SUEDE Lined holster
Note: Suede may vary in color (e.g. grey, light brown, dark brown, etc.)
Note 2: Notice stitching on inside of mouth of the holster, not seen in Un-lined holster above.
Smooth Leather Lined
Notice the inside of the holster is the same texture as the outside of the holster. This is achieved by gluing two “full thickness” pieces of leather back to back. These holsters are much heavier than Un-lined or Suede Lined holsters, and is usually only found in very expensive holsters that will see daily use, such as for law enforcement.

Can I get a cartridge belt larger than Extra Large or a Trouser Belt larger than 52″?
Maybe. The manufacturer does offer some belts in custom sizes, larger than standard. However, you will need to order directly from Triple K Manufacturing, as we do not sell them.
