The Best P320 Holsters (By Purpose)

The Sig Sauer P320 competes with the Sig Sauer P365 as Sig’s most successful gun and one of the most successful modern guns. Numerous police forces have adopted the Sig Sauer P320 and even scored that sweet military contract. With all its success has come a number of holster options, in fact, tons of them, and we wanted to bring our five favorites to your attention.

The Best P320 Holsters

We’ve picked five different holsters, each aimed at a specific purpose. Not everyone’s needs are the same, so we divided this category into five groups to bring you five holsters at the top of their genre.

For Duty – Safariland 7360 7TS ALS/SLS

When it comes to professional duty holsters, there are only a few names in the business worth mentioning. In that short list, Safariland consistently rises to the top with more contracts with Law Enforcement agencies and military forces than any other. Safariland invented the idea of duty-based retention, and the 7360 series is a level 3 retention holster, making it one of the safest options for the armed professional.

When the US military selected the Sig Sauer M17/M18 series pistols, they went with the 7360 holster for our troops. That’s a testament to the quality and design of the Safariland holster.

The Army Went with Safariland for a reason.

This system provides thermal-molded Safarilaminate construction. That’s a fancy way to say it’s tough and made to last. It’s polymer, so water and abrasion aren’t an issue. You’ll need a hammer and twenty minutes to break the thing.

The 7360 works with a number of weapon lights and all of Safariland’s various attachment systems. This rig comes in both standard and red dot-ready options. These rigs are the perfect duty option. They provide the security, access, and durability you need, combined with user modularity, mounting options, and the modern accessories we use on firearms. When it comes to a duty holster, there can be no compromise.

For Concealment – Safariland IncogX

From one Safariland to another.

Safariland has been fairly slow to get into the concealed carry market. Sure, they had some lower-profile OWB designs, but they only recently dived headfirst into the world of modern concealed carry. The IncogX came to be when Safariland teamed up with Travis Haley of Haley Strategic Partners. The IncogX is a modern AIWB holster made for modern guns like the P320.

The holster comes with a wing to help with AIWB concealment, but that wing can be removed for normal strongside IWB carry.

The Safariland has a dual clip design for excellent connection and support. It doesn’t twist, sag, or get away from me. Designed for a modern P320, the IncogX is red dot ready and has the option of a sidecar to carry a reload.

The IncogX hides the P320 very well. It has no problems disappearing under a shirt. It still provides an accessible and easy-to-draw option. Grip and rip the shirt, grab the gun and get to work. The outside of the holster is coated with suede for improved comfort. The IncogX is perfect for daily carry since it’s still a Safariland holster that’s tough as nails.

For Competition – Blackhawk L2C

There are lots of different kinds of competition shooting. Some sports involve very minimalist holsters that allow for an unbelievable draw. Others have a number of requirements to meet safety standards. Some competitions might not force you to use a holster with an active retention device, but you better because you’ll be climbing over all kinds of obstacles. With that in mind, one of the more generic but capable options is the Blackhawk L2C.

It incorporates a single action retention device that doesn’t impede a fast draw. It’s a good compromise in its offering of a fast draw and its ability to retain your pistol as you move and shoot.

The L2C isn’t perfect for every type of competition, but it works well all around.

The Blackhawk L2C places the retention device right behind the body of the holster, and your thumb naturally falls and meets the tab as you grip your gun. Press it inward and pull upward, and your gun is free, and you’re good to start shooting.

The Blackhawk L2C comes in a couple of configurations, including a low and high belt mount. It has a modular interface system, so it can be worn in a wide variety of ways. The all-polymer design is weatherproof, and there are various light-compatible models. All models are designed to accommodate a red dot sight. It’s a modern rig that rides the versatility line. It might not be great for a shooting sport with open race guns, but for most shooters, it’s perfectly adequate.

Shoulder Holster – Galco Miami Classic

Shoulder rigs might not be in vogue, but they are still a competent and capable way to carry a firearm. They do fill a niche for those who are constantly seated, like those on road trips or those who work in an office. From a seated position, the shoulder rig offers a lot of comfort and easy access. When I go on a road trip, there is only one shoulder rig I trust, and it’s the Galco Miami Classic. The Galco Miami Classic is truly a classic but has improved over the years in small ways.

This rig comes with the famed spider harness. This allows the four straps to move independently and prevent the rig from bunching up or constantly pulling or prodigy at the user.

Shoulder rigs aren’t for everyone, but the Miami Classic is arguably the best.

This creates comfort and flexibility and allows for lots of movement. The Miami Classic holds a gun on one side and a dual magazine pouch on the other. Two spare mags are a ton of ammo, but it’s also a weight that helps offset the weight of your Sig Sauer pistol.

The P320 isn’t a small gun; even the compact variant feels a bit large. Never fear; the Miami Classic will conceal it and support it without difficulty. The Galco Miami Classic allows for lots of adjustments to fit a wide variety of users. It can fit my 6 foot 5 frame and still shrink down to fit a petite woman. The Galco Miami Classic requires training to properly use, but having to train should never be a deterrent.

For Bags and Packs – Raven Concealment Systems Vanguard 2 Lanyard Holster

I won’t lie; I’m not the biggest proponent of off-body carry. I don’t think it should be ignored outright, but to me, it’s not a primary method of carry. It’s for those times when wearing a holster isn’t possible, regardless of how, when, or why you carry off your body. There is a universal need for something to cover the trigger. Using a holster can be tricky, but Raven Concealment has you covered. The Vanguard 2 provides a very minimalist design for a holster.

This ‘holster’ only covers the weapon’s trigger guard, which is the most important part to cover. Covering the trigger guard prevents anything in your bag from interacting with it.

This holster defines minimalism.

Just tossing your gun in a bag and hoping nothing happens isn’t failing to plan. It’s planning to fail. The Vanguard 2 covers the holster and has an attached lanyard.

Tie the lanyard to the bag, and when you draw, the lanyard tugs the Vanguard off your gun. This makes it super simple to get the gun in action. The Vanguard 2 has a nice positive snap over the trigger guard and provides good retention, but it’s not difficult to defeat. The Vanguard 2 isn’t isolated to bag carry, but that’s where I see it excelling.

Carry On

Carry on wayward, son, with your P320 until the work is done. The success of the P320 has proven that Glock might be losing their foothold ever so slightly. The gun is becoming quite dominant in the market and provides a very solid option for competition, concealed carry, duty use, and more. Your holster needs to match your purpose, and hopefully, we’ve given you an option for your purpose.
