Hello to all forum members,
I am looking for a holster for my PPQ. I will use this only at the shooting range to practice the draw. I do not intend to carry the gun, so retention and concealment are not an issue.
My no. 1 concern is that I would like a holster that does not mar the finish of the pistol and that is at the lower end of the price spectrum.
I thought about the AZULA leather pancake holster. What do you think? Do you have better suggestions?
I think you are on the right track with your attention on the Azula Pancake. You will get wear from any holster. That said, your best option is a leather holster that is fitted for your model gun. The more you draw and holster your pistol the sooner it will start to show wear.
A Gun News Daily article (Jan. 2019) rated the Azula Pancake Holster as number one for the Walther PPQ.
The pancake holster tucks the gun close to your body and is a great choice for OWB carry.
I highly recommend Garrett Industries. Their holsters are going to be a little thinner than a full leather holster and the two clips on the fusion holster really make a difference in distributing the weight of a larger gun like a PPQ.
