Need a good chest holster
« on: February 23, 2024, 07:31:04 AM »
I've neglected packing sometimes when working on my property.  Need something secure, comfortable, and doesn't hamper activity with hand tools, chainsaws, etc.  Looking at the Kenai or Denali for my N-frame S&W.  Anyone using these or other recommendations?

Iíve currently have a gunfighters inc for my 329pd. Itís so tight itís a pain to draw unless you have the straps sucked down tighter than I would like for all day comfort. Iíve been thinking of ordering one of these and trying it. https://invaderconcepts.com/collections/chest-holsters

I went over every option and went with this. Recon kit bag medium size. Fits my revolver or my Sig M18 with 21 round mag and sight. I like it because I have one that fits multiple guns plus extra magazines or my phone

I had the Kenaii gunfighter traded it off, I prefer the Diamond D, I'm with you hard to beat a leather holster
I use mine with a G20, works very well

I got a chest rig for my Glock 10mm from Windhill Holsters out of La Grande.  Very similar to the Kenai, but also supporting a more local business.  Win Win.

One thing about the gunfighter is the gins not going to fall out. It is tough to unholster the firearm
The only man who never makes a mistake, is the man who never does anything!!
The further one goes into the wilderness, the greater the attraction of its lonely freedom.

They must be popular.  6 - 8 weeks out the way I ordered it.  Might not have it for my first spring trip.  I can deal with that.

Another vote for Diamond D. I use them for my G20 and 460V.  Love em. Had plastic before and just too noisy to draw from.

I run a gunslinger bingo harness. I carry a judge revolver in it. But I donít think they are making them any longer. Wish I could find another one for my grandson.

Don't have one ( yet ) . I'm using a Gunfighters Inc Kenai with my 10mm 1911 . Saw a guy on TikTok with a Venandi and looked into them . Seems like the perfect combo for Hunting season when you need binos and backup pistol . Only really use the Kenai when mushroom , berry picking .
