There are many different designs or styles of one type of holster. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of styles of holsters on the market today.

Once the type of holster has been chosen, getting the style right may be a considerable undertaking. This is where the "Custom" part of this website may assist you in deciding what features you may want in a holster. Most styles of holsters within a certain type use the various features to differentiate one style from another. Although one feature may serve a very specific purpose, it may be chosen strictly as a matter of preference, without its specific purpose in mind.
