Tucker's Kydex Paddle holster comes just one way - FAST
See Limited Gun List for Kydex holsters before you order.***
Lead time from date of order is 3 weeks. Be sure to check the Kydex Gun List.
IDPA requires holsters that fit the IDPA rules for eligible holsters. All of our kydex holsters meet the IDPA rules.
The Kydex holster has the option of fixed vertical or fixed Butt-Forward cant angle. You choose at time of order.
These kydex holsters are completely practical, but also very fast. The optional leather lining works great.  Unlike some paddle holsters, this Kydex holster rides rock solid and close to the body. Your gun rides close and concealable with no wobble or tilt. Customers rave about this carry holster.

See the GUN LIST for kydex holsters (it's not available for every gun out there.)

The holster is made full length and has three tension screws so you can completely control retention.

The design allows for an easy full-firing grip from the get-go and the gun seems to leap into your hand. The draw is silky smooth due to the incredible fit. We think you'll love it.

Bonus Option: you can get Kydex Paddle lined with thin, smooth cowhide to protect your finish. (Won't that slow down the draw?) Well, unlike a leather holster that flexes some, leather-lined kydex is stiff and the draw feels like butter.

    1911 Kydex Paddle

    Posted by Taylor Latham on 1st Jul 2019

    Very pleased with the guys at Tucker Gunleather!
    Not only do they do great with holsters made of leather, they do great work with Kydex, too.
    I recently bought a new Tripp 1911 in 40 cal, the front of the slide and the frame/trigger guard are a little different than your standard 1911.

    I contacted Rob and he got an appointment set up for me the next day. I met the guys at the shop and showed them what I had and they proceeded to custom fit a Kydex paddle holster for it,
    They even made me a “little extra spare tire clearance” that moved the gun off the belt a little more for a great draw at USPSA matches. The holster fits this pistol perfectly with just a little snap at the trigger guard when the gun is seated. Thanks to the whole crew for their great service.

    Great holster

    Posted by Dennis Bixler on 16th Feb 2019

    I was looking for a "one piece" kydex holster and found it here.
    The paddle is folded kydex that is strong and ungiving. There is no weakness in the fold or any chance that this holster will be separated from the paddle. Riveted holsters have that downfall.
    Well made and solid. Covers the trigger and offers plenty of adjustable retention. I found the lower retention screw to directly impact the contact the slide has with the holster. Loosen it to avoid holster wear. Keep the upper one tight as it contacts the trigger guard providing solid retention.
    Great product, fast delivery.
    Will definitely come here for any other holsters!

    Finally a holster for my Taurus

    Posted by Randy Johnston on 29th Mar 2017

    Finding a holster I liked for my Taurus 1911ar was a challenge.
    Then I found Tucker Holsters in Texas, these people had exactly what I was looking for. Fits like a glove, great quality, good price. Thanks and yes, I'd buy here again.

    Colt Combat Unit 45ACP Holster

    Posted by Mike on 13th Sep 2016

    A holster for the CCU pistol from Colt/TALO is hard to find no doubt. However, there is one place they are not. That place is Tucker Gun Leather and they made one for me that is a perfect fit. It has a secure fit with an easy draw. Ready for the fight when you need it. It also is leather lined, providing extra protection for this fine firearm. I highly recommend purchasing your next custom holster from this firm.

    There are other options available, do your research

    Posted by MAJmorgan on 19th Aug 2015

    The Tale of Two Holsters... Ordered a pair of leather-lined kydex holsters on the same day. The one from GI arrived in 2 weeks, has mounting options (paddle, slide, loops, etc) and is exceptionally well finished. The TUCKER holster arrived after 2 Months. Fit & finish is poor; stitching does not follow the scribe line on the kydex, there is glue on the edge of the holster from attaching the leather, the muzzle end of the holster is crooked, one side hangs down and the other side is short; the flaps on the open Trigger Guard side of the holster are also crooked, as the 2 holes drilled for the retention screws aren't properly lined up. An Allen Key was included with the holster that is 3 sizes too large for the retention screws, sorta like they just tossed in whatever was laying around. All in all, this is an amateurish attempt at building a holster compared to the competition's product. Definitely not worth the wait.

    Leather lined. IDPA use

    Posted by Clyde on 11th Aug 2015

    Received it earlier than expected on a friday. Made some adjustments for fit. Used it in a IDPA shoot the next day. Fast easy draws. Stayed tight on my belt with the paddle. I would recommend this holster for IDPA.

    Very Nice

    Posted by Unknown on 12th May 2015

    I bought this for IDPA. It really stays put on my side and the leather lining makes for a smooth and fast draw. Wait time on making it was less than I expected.

    Excellent Product

    Posted by Wil McCall on 10th Nov 2014

    I ordered two (Colt Commander and Glock 19) and both are great. They hold the firearms securely and clip onto my waist securely as well. I like them both.

    Leather Lined 1911 Kydex. SIMPLY AWESOME

    Posted by Jim on 24th Jul 2014

    Kick A$$ Holster. Couldn't ask for more and the leather lining keeps my Kimber nice and purdy. Excellent draw, and craftmanship is awesome too.
