Default Holster Shops near OC

Hi everyone,

I just signed up for my CCW training course for next week, and need a holster. I ordered a Tier 1 holster last month but it wonít be ready in time.

Are there any brick & mortar holster shops in and/or around Orange County? I recall a thread of a member here making holsters, but I unfortunately did not subscribe to the thread. I believe he/she was working out if another retail store in south OC.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, Iíll check them out this weekend.

Thank you for your time.

Training class? Or qualification class? If qualification you can go to a gun store and grab a cheap uncle Mike's for you gun.

Class says I need to bring all guns going on my permit, but holster for primary, which will be a HK USP 45 Compact.

Ah, if I owned that one, Iíd let you borrow a holster. Hopefully someone can chime in and help.

Iíd say, since itís a common gun, check Sportmans (Corona) online or your local range to see if they carry that holster. Uncle Mikeís may not be suited well if youíre running drills.

Who are you taking the class with?

Wow 9Cal_OC, that is incredibly kind gesture of you and I sincerely appreciate it.

I have other firearms that are going to be listed on my permit, but the class specifically requested a holster for my "primary" firearm, which to be honest at this point may not even be the USP as I have no actually carried it yet.

Worse case scenario I am confident I can find a holster for a M&P Shield as I know that is very popular.

I am taking the class with https://www.trbtraining.com/society-forza/ . I have no personal references with them besides the coincidence that my workout trainer knows one of them, we met by chance at the gym. They also do their live fire training at Rahaauges, which is the range I frequent the most.

A Shield holster should be way easier to find. In any case, I have an Alien Gear one you could borrow if you don’t find it.

Plus, with ammo, 9 is a bit easier and cheaper to get than .45. That USP is a chunky monkey.

You should be fine with them. I can assure you most in your class will be shooting with a Shield, so if things go awry with mags, I’m sure they may have loaners.

That seems like a strange request. Oddly enough, there is no requirement to draw from a holster for your CCW. If there was, they would require a holster for each gun you intended to qualify with.

It may be worth a quick call to your range/instructor and ask them to clarify this. It may be their own personal requirement...in which case you could at least explain your holster is on order and won't be here in time, and can they waive the requirement. And/or they may have one you can borrow.
