Bladetech is by far the mist popular kydex competition out there. I have about 6 of them myself for my G17,G24, 2-G34's, G35, S&W 625 Revo. I had a dog chew up a holster and myself try to heat up and reform one if their jolsters and they exchanged both if them at no cost! That kinda of customer service and the factvthat their qualtiy is outstanding gets my vote. I hipe simeday im good enough to ask them to sponsor me.
I also use their AR mag pouches and Bobby McGee competition single pistol mag pouches for 3 gun. I really like the CR Speed mag pouches for pistol only competitions though. You do a lot of reloads in a pistol match and not as much running as in a 3 gun match. So the BladeTech pistol pouches are taller and hold onto the mags a little better so they never fall out when I run but they don't come out as easy/fast when I'm doing 5 mag changes in a 32 round stage shooting production division. The CR Speed mag pouches are fully adjustable and can be used with various mag types. They are shorter which allows you to get mire if your hand and fingers in the mags and have a big thumb screw for adjusting the tension in the mags.
The best way to figure out what you think us going to work for you us to attend a big match and ask everybody what they use and why. Most if us guys that like to compete with guns are A type personality and have an opinion and/or reasons why we use what we use. Plus mist of us ate proud to show off our hear which is why the people if this sport are so fun to hang out with.
The best place to order from is not CR Speed or BladeTech directly. cR speed is in south Africa so it takes 2-4 weeks to get you stuff and BladeTech usually builds to order so it takes 1-2 weeks.
