Paddle Holster | OWB Concealed Carry | Competition | Comp-Tac

We produce products for the most popular make and model pistols, S&W, Glock, Springfield, H&K, Sig Sauer and many more.  Please select your pistol from the Make and Model drop down!

The Comp-Tac Paddle Holster is an all-Kydex outside the waistband holster that may be worn for competition, general use or concealed carry. The paddle is designed to be worn at 3:00 for the right handed shooter.

The Kydex body provides a rigid material that is fit to each firearm and maintains its shape even with the pistol un-holstered. The smooth low friction surface allows for a fast draw and easy one-handed re-holstering of the firearm. The all-Kydex body will not bend or stretch over time and is impervious to sweat and solvents.

The Paddle attachment is the fastest holster attachment system available. The paddle allows you to slide the holster on while your belt is already threaded through the loops. The paddle backing curves over the belt and pants so the paddle portion sits inside your waistband. There are two forward curving tabs that “grab” on to the bottom of your belt to help stabilize the holster, keeping the holster in position during the draw. The paddle may be worn with any pants regardless of where your pant loops are. Quick to put on or take off, the paddle will fit belts up to 1.75” in width.

The Comp-Tac Paddle holster is IDPA, USPSA, and IPSC legal.

The “Slide” version allows the user to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357). The Slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so that longer guns can ‘slide’ through the end of the holster.

Slide versions of outside the waistband holsters are recommended for range work only. While carrying a longer firearm in a slide holster the end is left exposed and the user must be careful not to bump the exposed muzzle up against anything that might dislodge the firearm, i.e. sitting down in an arm chair.

Not all Models will have the de-bossing (make and model) listed on the outside of the holster.  We are working to update all of our models to have this, it is an ongoing process.

    Would NOT Fit, Spent over sixty dollars for my FNH 9MM, They said it would fit. When I got it I attempted to adjust the screw settings the hand gun would NOT Fit Now I'm stuck with a holster that will not work.

    Ideal OWB for Glock 32 Compact

    Posted by Guest Customer on Dec 13th 2016

    I've worn this holster since before 2010 when I retired from Federal Law Enforcement. I really lime this holster and it stays with my piatol. This holster stays put on your waist! Good weapon retention. It is NOT easy to remove without undoing your belt. If that's important you might be able to mod it somehow. Could not recommend it more highly for a Glock compact.

    Comp-Tac Paddle Holster

    Posted by David F. on Sep 2nd 2016

    Many hours were spent in examining different holsters for my S&W Shield for OTW concealed carry. I had convinced myself that the holster had to have a belt-slide-through for keeping it from sliding around the waist and to keep it from being accidentally detached from the belt. Sadly, I found nothing that existed for my gun.And then I came across the Comp-Tac Paddle Holster on the Internet. It wasn't the attachment type holster I wanted originally but the holster itself looked sharp as hell and appeared to be well thought out. A little expensive but my humble experiences have generally taught me that quality costs and you also generally get what you pay for. So what the heck....I'll give it a try.The holster is absolutely well made and crafted, the over-the-pants-belt configuration is easy to don and remove, the pistol stays in place and that includes the holster as well.You've heard the advice about having a backup gun ? Well, I'm going to purchase an additional holster in the near future for a backup spare !

    Good for Frequent On and Off

    Posted by Stanton Royce on Aug 15th 2016

    I've used an older version of this holster daily for about ten (10) years beginning with an SA XD 4 45 ACP until about 2 years ago. Now I use the holster with an SA XDM 3.8 45 ACP Compact. I take the holster on and off repeatedly because I'm in and out of my state government workplace which is a SAFE FREE FIRE ZONE for Criminals. At home I always have on the holster unless I am sleeping. I do keep my 1 12 contoured Milt Sparks gun belts quite snug so the holster doesn't move forward or backward of 3 o'clock. (Also, I'm slim with not much hip to hold up my trousers even without a 45 on one side, and two 13-round magazines on the other side.) I'm buying the newer version, just a paddle made as part of the holster rather than as an option for paddle or belt loops like my older one. I have the International too, for a pair of SA XDM 4.5 45 ACP, currently set up as a paddle. The International as a paddle is NOT easy on and off when standing, and especially so when sitting in a car seat (not good to be seen at work standing outside the car struggling with two hands getting a holster on and off but the International does stay in place quite well once on, without having to cinch up your belt as tight as it takes on my body to keep this paddle in place at 3 o'clock). With this paddle holster, I learned taking it on and off with one hand, even when sitting (I do lean my torso toward the side opposite the holster), I can slip a finger or two behind the holster part to apply slight pressure on the inside of the paddle to push the two gripping teeth back away from the belt (pushing the paddle in toward my body) so then with some upward pressure on the holster as I tilt up one end to release on tooth, then the other, the paddle slides easily up past the bottom of the belt and out of the pants.

    Paddle Holster fills the bill!

    Posted by Guest Customer on May 19th 2016

    Carry a P40 Kahr in your Paddle Holster. Easy on and STAYS on and in position! Wish you made it for Walther PPQ M2. I have several of your fine holsters and it is my favorite concealed carry holster.
