I don't have any experience with the Blade-tech holsters, I have talked to several others and they told me to look at the Raven Concealment holsters.

for discreet carry i like the Comp-Tac Settable Cant Paddle holster. it hold the gun butt tight to the body and yet releases very quickly. i like the paddle design as it is very secure to the belt and allows placement anywhere along my belt without regard to my belt loops.

i've also been working with a Safariland 6378 which has the added feature of their ALS retension system

for range work or when teaching. i like the Blackhawk CQC Serpa Paddle holster. the Serpa lock is nice for the range and allows a very fast presentation while not worrying about it falling out if you are jumping around. it does sit a bit out from the body for serious concealment under tight clothing.

the Blade Tech Stingray is very popular with the IDPA crowd

I've never used one but I'm looking into picking up a Raven Concealment. Fits tight to the body and can be worn IWB also if desired.

Sidearmor also looks interesting, but it looks like it sticks out further from the body.

Check out Tucker Gunleather. He has some great lookin Kydex holsters. I'm going to be getting the Silent Thunder Champion. Great looking stuff.

Here's another link to a review with great pics.

The product you link is the injection molded Bladetech holster, it's not kydex. If you plan to go Bladetech, get a kydex holster as you intended.

You said you wanted something for ccw, low profile, and for target. Raven fits all your needs the best and in my experience is the holster that hugs your body the most. Keep in mind that its about a month wait time to get a holster from Raven.

I used Blade-tech for my custom Glock 35 in .357 SIG for a while. It has been a great holster, but not really the most concealable for off duty use.

I decided to make my own kydex rig. It is fashioned after a Kramer pancake scabbard. It works great.

I did order a Raven rig for my pistols several weeks ago and I can't wait to get them.
