Blade-Tech DOH. Fits like a glove. Adjustable. Holds the gun securely but is easy to draw from. I like the Blackhawk Level I holsters and Serpa holsters, but last time I checked, they don't make one for the SP-01. Don't know of any cons.

I have one on the way to me, should be here next week. I have had more than plenty of experience with race holsters, and plan on simplifying my gear. I noticed that Bladetech seems really popular in the USA, and here in Canada the more I ask around, it seems to be quite a following here as well. Do you get much finish wear from the Kydex? Thanks for replying ;D

I've only seen the Bladetech DOH, but heard Safariland made one that fits, but I can't confirm that.

All holsters cause wear, but my son's Shadow doesn't show wear yet with the Bladetech.

I've had mine for about 9 months, and I do a low to moderate amount of practice draws, etc. It's about to make it's match debut this weekend. As yet, no sign of wear on the finish of the pistol at all. But again, I don't use it everyday. Works great for me, though.

Also use a Bladetech with the String Ray Attachment with little to no wear. Based on my experience quality kydex wears less than leather.

Bladetechs work really well.. you will get wear on the edges after some use.

This was my heaviest use SP01. This is after about 6 months. About 5 matches a month, two practices a week and dryfire every night.

Stu, that's probally one heck of alot of draws to get wear like that! Bladetech DOH should be here either Monday or Tuesday.

I use a blackhawk cqc made for sig 228/229, fits the shadow with only a little drag on the gun. Holds it securley otherwise.
