Didn't think I would ever hear myself say that, have always been a leather guy but was shooting some action matches and I can see where a good one might be handy. So who makes a really good one, either plastic or Kydex, that is tight and rigid fitting and without some gimmick to release? I tried a Safariland but it was an epic fail. Guess I should have known with a one size fits many but even the retaining catch messed up all the time. This would be for a 229.
I went to an IDPA match last weekend and three things I didn't see were 1) metal guns, 2) leather holsters and 3) hammers. I can give a little on the leather...

One thing I like about being an old fart is not having to go along with the crowd. I like my pistols to have a certain heft, I like metal, I like a hammer and I like the look and feel of leather. But, at Gunsite, i did use a Safariland holster on a 226 that worked like a charm, allowing me to put three in assigned area in 1.5 seconds. But, having said that, being a conservative and being one of those radicals that believe in person's freedom to choose, I say more power to those that choose the newer styled "party favors" to be lead delivery systems! Go forth and deliver!

I almost alway go with leather while carrying off duty. I have had some kydex holsters. I really like the raven holsters but they are limited in gun models. Im sure there are other good ones out there.

This is what i use for competition
International Holster | Comp-Tac Victory Gear
Works very well for my 226 tacops, i use it with the drop attachment ad well as their "PLM" belt loop, it has a button release which can be locked to make sure it doesnt let go. Ive used it for a few USPSA matches, works like a charm, i have a couple of their holsters, one for my USP, their tutn around is 5-10 days usually, they make good stuff.
Raven concealment makes good holsters, but they are designed to be tigjt to the body, not sure id want that for competition, i use the raven for iwb on my usp for the last few years, good for concewl carry, down side, is depending on what you want custom made ones are 14-16 weeks out, they have some quicl ship options

Check out the Clinger offered by the supporters here. I have 2 for my 229 and my 239.
They are minimal, polished and work very well undercover.

Raven, Comp-Tac, JM Custom Kydex, Ozark, Dale Frick, Incog, and Garrett (leather lined) come to mind.
I have only kydex holsters and love them. A well made kydex holster can be gentle on the finish, if that matters to one, since they use the trigger guard primarily for retention.
Ozark IWB for my Glock 19.

Sounds like the safari land you came in contact with was a "GLS" which for lack of a better term is an abortion of a system. Look for an ALS specific to your weapon. It has inside thumb retention that is for the most part hidden from others but naturally releases when you form a grip on the weapon. It is suede lined so very finish friendly. Comes with both paddle and belt loops. You won't be disappointed.

This is what I use for USPSA...Ben Stoeger BOSS DOH Holster | Pro Shop with the Blade-Tech.
I have never shot IDPA but I think that the dropped and offset part is a no go. I could be wrong.
You can buy just the holster though.
My girlfriend uses this...Silent Thunder Champion
I really like GI holsters and have a few of their silent thunder GT holsters for my carry pieces but I honestly like my Blade-Tech better for competition but YMMV.
We both use metal guns with hammers. She uses her 229 Legion and I use a CZ SP-01 Accu Shadow.

When I go to the range to shoot my p226 Extreme I usually use my Sig plastic paddle holster - the part number on the back is 8501227. It says on the back that it works for the 2009, 2022, 220, 226, 227, MK25 and M11-A1. You can buy these from the Sig Store - mine came in the box with a new sp2022. I see no indication of this holster causing undue wear marks on my p226. It works.

I bought one of those SIG Tac plastic holsters (with the retention device) for my P239 just in case I decided to open carry. I still haven't used it yet. I prefer leather for all my concealed needs.

We have a guy in AZ that custom makes kydex holsters and he does a great job. I personally like kydex, it doesnt respond to moisture and is good under warmer temps, you just cant leave them in direct sun in a hot car for too long. I also like the fact that in some, you can adjust the tension. I have mine made with a paddle but I can switch it out to a Blade Tech belt attachment.
