Iíve worn a Quick Draw fitting 1911ís for a couple years. No problems. Also have one for a G19, and yes, they are quick on the draw.

I ordered an IWB revolver holster that was utter garbage. It was basically an unformed leather bag with the clip in an awkward place.

I wouldn't buy a Tagua holster sight unseen.

I have had a couple and could never get comfortable with either of them. The design looked great, but they just didn't wear well. The best thing about them is that they are readily available. That was my experience.

I am a big fan of using a smaller company. There is a usually couple of weeks waiting period but they will stand by their products. Lobo Gunleather, TT Gunleather, El Paso Saddlery etc.

Bought one for my SIG p365 a couple years ago, mainly because holster choices were slim for that relatively new gun. and have worn it off and on for most of the last year. It seems well made, and has held up well. I think it was a lot of holster for the money. When looking at Tagua holsters, I did notice some models / versions seemed better made and finished than others. For the price, no concerns, especially if you have the chance for a hands on exam before purchase.

I've had 2 of them. They were functional but not very impressive to me. Thinner leather & not imo up to the task of long term use. The Paddle holster especially was not that sturdy. But my experience is limited to only these 2 holsters.

I have several. They're decent -- not premium quality, mind you, but not premium priced, either.

The only one I had, for a J-frame belt holster, the stitching started to unravel after not that much use. Better to invest a little more in a higher quality holster in my opinion.

I have a couple. They are mid level and the price reflects it.

I have one for my Glock 29/30. For me it works well and is a good value.

Tagua makes bottom tier holsters. Better than nylon but not by much. Searching Ebay and being patient to find a deal on a better holster is a better option.

I have two, belt slide model for my M&P autos and one for my Glock 43. I have had no problems at all. The M&P also accepts my CZ P-01 Omega and the one for the 43 also accepts my Kahrs. I am a lefty and sometimes it is difficult to find holsters for some pistols. I like the belt slides because I can carry different barrel lengths. I have higher end holsters but the Taguas work for me and the price is right.

I have one of their IWB hybrids (leather back with a kydex shell) for my LC9. Excellent affordable holster.
I also have an all leather one for a compact double stack (PT145) and it works quite well also.

5 years ago I had my eye out looking for a holster for a newly acquired 4" L frame 586 with the full under lug. I noticed a brown holster in a Gun Shop box of used holsters that had the formed barrel grove was wide all the way down. That looks like it will fit an L Frame I said to my self. There was nothing stamped but Made in Paraguay. I bought it and the L Frame 586 fits perfectly. I believe it is a Tagua but not sure.



A couple years later I was looking for a holster for a 3" 686+ and spot a nicer Black Holster for obviously a 3" Revolver with the same wide barrel channel so I get it. However it does not fit the L frame it is for a 3"k frame. NO Markings except made in Paraguay.

I have Tagua holsters for my Shield, Glock 23, Bodyguard 380 and 1911. All have performed admirable in the last 8 years.

I got 1 for my S&W9c. It's pretty thin leather, but I wasn't expecting much, for the price. It does fit the pistol pretty good & is comfortable to carry & wear. But I don't use it often; it's pretty much used only on training days as OWB is more comfortable when I'm gonna be sitting in a classroom.

I got a belt Tagua for J frame because it was inexpensive and had belt loops arranged for both strong side and cross draw, since I wanted to try both. It is ok, no complaints, I kept it as a backup, but found others I like better - that cost more of course.

I got one for a cz p07, it's ok. The leather rides up too high near the mag release and I was worried it would unseat the magazine. To be fair though that particular cz has a mag release that sticks out too much. Anyways the dog was a puppy when I got the holster and she used it as a chew toy, oh well.

For an every day carry piece spend a little more. Worked in a high volume shop that had a direct account with Tagua, sold loads of them. There qc was all over the place.

I own two. One for a J-frame and another for a Glock 19. I don’t use them regularly but in the years I’ve owned them they seem to work fine, especially for the price.
