I'm lost and don't know what brand or anything to look for. I want to buy a good holster but not break the bank either. Any help?

Try defensive holsters. MikeP who is a member on here has a holster company. He might be able to help u out. It is in the vendors section of this site.

Safariland makes a duty style holster to fit a light. Take a look at their attachment types. Might have something you're looking for.

I have a Blackhawk Serpa holster for my 22. I've used this style of holster in the military as well. It's great.

If you're looking for anything remotely concealable, I'd stay away from the Blade Tech, unless you're going to start telling everyone you wear a colostomy bag.

I also make concealment holster (belt not paddle... I don't trust paddles outside of the pistol range) for just about any Glock/ weapon light combination you can come up with. Let me know if I can help.

I have a tlr-2 also. I bought a safariland holster built specifically for the glock and light. I would not go paddle holster because if you have to draw that weapon when shtf, it can be a tight fit, as I've come to realize. And, if its to tight of a fit do you want to pull the whole paddle out of your shorts or do you want to use your belt as a point of leverage? Id get a blue gun and go to a gun store and ask them if you could try out holsters to see which one you like the most.

Oh, and trotac... I don't suppose you make custom otsh for a 1911? I've been looking for one that will fit my fat ass more comfortably. I kind of want to go with the old dirty harry style of shoulder holster.

I haven't ever made a shoulder rig, but yours isn't the first inquiry I've had for them either. It could be done, but honestly I think leather would be a better choice than Kydex for that purpose. I'm always up for a challenge though if you decide you'd like to see something.

I see the point on a belt vs paddle holster! Never thought of that! Thanks for all the help everyone! Now to weigh my options and go from there!

I carry a serpa all the time, never had it come off the best, and never had a problem getting my pistol out of it. If you get a good paddle holster it will have good hooks that keep it on the belt.

I've never had a paddle holster come off under normal use either, but I still don't / wouldn't trust one for serious use. Most off the shelf paddle holsters are made of cheap plastic ( Kydex breaks too) that is just to flimsy for my comfort. I know it's "worst case scenario" but if I ever end up in a fight for my holstered weapon, I sure hope I've got some nice thick, sturdy loops securing it to my belt.

I've been in alot of wrestling matchs with mine and know of officers who had aggressive disarm attempts made on them while using a paddle serpa, don't know of any time the gun came out or the holster came off the belt when it wasn't intended to do so.

I do know of 2 times when officers had their duty weapon holster taken right off them, both times the officers were wearing the leather duty belts that velcro to an under belt. Both times they had belt keepers on too, they just took the whole thing off the officer with a quick strong pull.

My point being, it can happen either way, loop or paddle, the right bad guy can pull it off ya at the right time.

You're absolutely right, anything made by us humans can fail... I just like to hedge my bets as much as possible. I still don't see anything changing my mind on paddles though. I'm glad to hear you nor any of your buds have lost a gun, that's a scenario I am not envious of. Fortunately I've never had to fight for mine... Yet.
