1. Don’t Leave Your Gun at Home

Have you ever left home and just forgot your concealed carry system? It happens to the best of us but by the time you realize you forgot it there may not be time to go back. One thing you can do to help you remember is use a colored holster.

Depending on how you store your gun and holster, it is easier to forget your gunmetal gray holster at home than it is to forget your hot pink holster. A gray holster can blend in with its surroundings and be easily overlooked. If you had a hot pink holster, how could you miss it?!

So, if you find that you are constantly forgetting your conceal carry gun at home and have a neutral colored holster, try a fun brightly colored one. You might realize it’s harder to forget your holster.

2. Colored Holsters And Leaving Your Gun In A Public Place

Imagine you are out with your family and you go to the restroom. Where do you put your gun while you are taking care of business? Do you set it on the toilet paper dispenser or on the floor, maybe you just hold onto it? Well, if you set it down you are likely to forget it if you aren’t paying close attention.

If you have a colored holster you are more likely to notice the zombie green item sitting next to you on your way out of the stall than if it were black. You may think you don’t have to worry about forgetting your gun in the bathroom because that's just not something you could do. Think again. You’d be surprised at the number of things people leave in a public restroom, guns included.

Purchasing a colored holster for your concealed carry gun can be beneficial if you are constantly leaving things in restrooms, it’s harder to forget a brightly colored holster.

3. Colored Holsters To Differentiate Between Gun Models

Maybe you have multiple concealed carry guns or just guns that you have holsters for, colored holsters can help distinguish between the array of holsters.

Oftentimes various gun model holsters can look similar. If you have a black holster for all your guns it may take some time to match the gun with its proper holster. Whereas if you pick a color for each gun and order any holsters for that gun in its designated color or pattern, it will be easier to know which holsters match which gun.

If you find yourself staring at your holsters because they are all the same color and you don’t know what gun they go to, it may be time to invest in some colored holsters.

4. People Cerakote Guns So Why Not Get A Holster To Match

You may have seen people with various colored guns or you might have one yourself. These guns are often cerakoted. There is a lot of time, effort, and money that goes into cerakoting a gun. So, why not have a holster that matches? When your gun is in the holster not much of it can be seen, but your holster might be visible, or at least on Instagram sometimes. Imagine taking your nice american flag gun and placing it into a matching holster. Makes you feel good and looks much better in pictures, doesn’t it?

If you have a cerakoted gun don’t put it in a plain colored holster that doesn’t compliment your gun, that’s no fun. Put it in a nice matching holster and just imagine how cool everyone will think you are, because you are.

5. May Be Easier To Reholster With A Colored Holster

Depending on what clothes you are wearing and the color of your holster, you may find it is difficult to reholster your gun because your holster blends in with your clothes, or maybe you’re in a low light situation. There aren’t many things worse than fumbling around trying to get your gun back in the holster.

Prevent the embarrassment of struggling with your dark colored holster that blends with your clothes and get a colored holster. With a colored holster it can be easier to reholster your gun because of the high visibility and the difference in color between your clothes and the holster. No more fumbling!
