One of the best holsters I have ever owned in my over 45+ years of handgun experience. Outstanding quality control and customer service is what I received. Will be my first choice for new purchases in the future.

Very well made. Had to wait about 2 months for backorder but it was well worth it. The availability of different options is fantastic. Will purchase again.

I have tired several OWB for my M&P Shield and was not happy with any of them. After my search for a better holster.I ordered a DARA holster and after a short wait it arrived
I was just what i had been searching for. I will no longer buy off the shelf holsters. I will order from DARA what i need.

Great quality holster for my Glock 40 MOS. It allows for reflex sight. Production time was very long, a little over 6 weeks! But the fitting and quality are amazing. Great look and adjustable retention.

Looking for a custom holster for the new Walther Q5? Look no further; solid, comfortable design and engineering.

As I prefer minimalist gear, I ordered this one for EDC, and the possibility of competition down the road. Turns out it's a not enough of a hugger to be a great CC holster, but stability could be improved with the double loop, which I might order. If the double loop (or even single) were reversed 180 degrees, it would be a hugger, and much better for EDC (a redesign of the loop would allow it to work either way, and reversed, would get you another 1/2 inch closer to the body). I was also not expecting the retention to be on the barrel end (typically on the trigger guard) which I fear will cause premature wear. I'm probably wrong, and I know this holster was not specifically designed for EDC, but for competition. Slightly revised, this particular holster would be an outstanding minimalist EDC holster. Overall...exceptional quality, exceptional fit and finish, snug as a bug, and really fast on target. Can't ask for more than that. Customer service was excellent with Dana at the helm, and shipping was very close to promised date. Highly recommended product for intended use. Nothing but good things to say about this great little company. Great work, guys.

I recently acquired a Walther Q5 match to use as a Carry Optics/Limited gun in USPSA. While they have been on the market for a while now, the availability of holsters for it is slim to say the least. Through a person I follow on social medai (Michelle Jean - Team Walther Shooter/all around bad ass) I saw a few posts about Dara. As my options were limited, I jumped on as fast as I could. In fact, I believe my order was placed the day before I picked up my pistol. While the lead time had me a little weary because I was anxious to get out and run the new rig, I trusted that it was worth it and had a buddy press me a temporary one in his shop to pass the time. It worked well but I was excited to get my Custom Action Holster from Dara.
Lead time was accurate. I believe I was quoted at 3-5 weeks and it was 4, to my doorstep.
First, thank you for not crimping the entire packaging. No body likes that and whomever invented it should be punished. Item ships in a standard box with a product description, a thank you from Dara, and a promise of quality in their "if ANYTHING goes wrong" call us guarantee.
Finish is great. No sharp corners or rough edges. Smooth lines and good detail on the outside of the rig with a thickness that translates into great retention, stiffness, and speed on the draw. The inside looks polished and smooth with nothing to catch or mar the frame/slide. The Q5 runs a Hi Viz style taller-than-average front sight and the channel provided in the holster guarantees it won't get hung up on the draw. Two rubber-spacer retention screws allow the user to adjust for different levels of retention but I found that the way it came was perfect and have decided not to touch it unless it loosens up at some point.
I was a little leery of the belt loop as I've always run a Blade-Tech Tek Lok system but, at 1.5" (also available in 1.75") it is perfect on my Black Scorpion Gear two piece belt and has screws to accommodate different belt thicknesses.
This past Sunday, 11.6.16, I was finally able to get it out to a match to test how it performed on the move. Retention is fantastic. Not once while hustling around the courses of fire was I even the slightest bit concerned about the firearm coming loose. Without the Tek Lok and drop offset that I was used to, I was having to draw from a little higher but as it turns out, I'm a bit faster out of the holster, and consequently on to target, that way and didn't know it. Re-Holstering is easy and the audible and tactile snap when it gets set in great for assurance of safety.
In summary, while I don't plan on doing so anytime soon, if I were to start running a new setup, I'll be sticking with Dara Holsters for the foreseeable future. Great product, Great Customer Service, Great Company.
I'll be ordering the IWB Appendix setup soon for my EDC PPQ M1 and can't wait to try it out so, Dana.....expect more questions.

Tried several holsters for my Walther PPQ but never satisfied until now. The Dara holster is not only well made but fits perfectly with perfect functionality. Wish I had discovered them sooner!

perfect custom fit for little more than an off-the-shelf Kydex holster. Well worth the money and wait.

Works fine. Particularly like the front cut out - makes drawing quicker and easier. Holstering is easier also. This is quite a change for me. Previously carried an Officer Model in a Milt Sparks BN - since 1996. Good product.

Best Klydex holster I have, and I have many from other manufactures. Fit and finish is excellent. Holds the weapon in like a tight fitting glove. I have received two custom holsters from Dara and one more has been ordered. There is a long wait time but it's well worth the wait for a quality holster. It amazes me that Dara makes holsters for so many different types of guns, even the very hard to get ones. The customer service is top notch. I emailed a message after closing hours about a custom race holster and they got back to me the next day.
If you want a quality top of the line superb fitting custom holster and can wait the the time it takes to make, I recommend a Dara custom holster.

well made - fine detail - good fit

I discovered DARA about 6 months ago. This most recent holster is my third holster from DARA and all have been very quality built and finished holsters. I have been using one of them in USPSA competition for the past three months and it has worked great. I had to modify my Bladetech DOS to accept the DARA but both have held up very well. I have been asked and I highly recommend DARA holsters to other shooters.

This is holster is a minimalist dream. It holds the pistol solid and allows for a quick draw because of the cut away design. I highly recommend it. The edges are smooth and polished so there are no sharp edges as well.

quality product. only downside is that it takes way to long to receive. 6 weeks. overall i would recommend Dara holsters. customer service is great also.
