I will also defer to the Chief if the OP needs recs for a duty holster. My area of expertise is limited to carry holsters. Duty holsters bring in a whole new set of factors for consideration including but not limited to; retention, what else are you carrying on your belt, the overall look matters, etc.

Now, if he's talking about carrying a gun but not actually "carrying for duty purposes" I'm your man. If he is carrying under the radar that is. I can help you with concealment holsters.

Welp, they like the holster to match the belt. My duty belt is black. So i reckon i need a black holster. As far as retention level, they leave that up to the officer.
I like the Safariland 6377 (level 2), but it is an open top holster with a retention device. You can shop around and find them in the sub $50 range. If you want more retention, I suggest going with the Safariland 6360 (level 3). The 6280 (level 2) is another good option. It is the same retention level as the 6377, but it has a different type retention device. The 6360 is actually a combination of the 6377 and the 6280.

You mention that your belt is black, but is it leather or nylon? If leather, is it basketweave or plain?

i've got the glock brand holsters/mag pouches, which are made out of the same polymer as the frames. they're like $10, and they're fantastic OWB holsters. :)


if you need some sort of retention, the serpas work great too with that retention tab, and aren't too expensive.

There are multiple training centers and quite a few big names that prohibit the Serpa from being used at their facilities.

I don't know of any agency that is approving the level 2 Serpa for uniform duty use (I do know of some approving the level 3).

The OP is asking about a duty holster. The Serpa level 2 is nowhere close to a duty grade holster. A duty holster and a simple carry holster are vastly different creatures.

he's a hospital security officer. doubtful his choices are as strict as law enforcement.
