Shoulder Holster + IWB Holster + Belt Holster + Mag Pouch + 2 Extra Magazines can add up to around $500 pretty quick. Add in a good belt and you're in between that an $600.

I don't buy it all at once, but I know that I will within about 18 mos when I pick up the gun as I like to carry with all holster types at different times.

I never buy cheap holsters or gun belts either, so that means that when I get the new gun it comes with an additional $600 in gear cost. It is what it is, but it does make me more hesitant to buy. Anyone else feel the same way?
Let's see. My last purchase was a Kimber Super Carry. Gun cost $1,500. New holster would be less than $100 per. - - No, I don't let the holster dictate the gun.

For $600 you can get 1 or 2 good holsters with spare mag carrier and several spare magazines. Living here in Az a shoulder holster is not very practical, a good IWB holster and a OWB is all you need.[/FONT]
