Have a light or laser attachment? Check out our Light bearing Action Sport Holster.

Be sure to check out our OWB Mag Carriers as well.

Please choose your exact make and model. Failure to mention any details that influence the external dimensions of your firearm will result in fitment issue.


I have an Optic, will this holster work?

Yes, the Action Sport Holster already accommodates an optic and co-witness sights.

I would like a different belt attachment, can I get the holster made with another loop?

No. We will only send this holster out with a Double Loop. If you'd like another belt attachment, we do sell them separately. However, as this holster is mainly used for competitive shooting, we only send it out with the most stable option.

I have the Tactical/Omega version of a pistol listed in the drop down menu.

Please let us know in the Custom Notes section so we can ensure a perfect fit!

My carry gun is not listed on your drop down menu, what do I do?

Please contact us to see if there are any options. Sometimes we are able to make it work.

    Competition Holsters

    I bought a pair of these holsters and AQLS hardware to be able to swap a 9 for a 45 without changing belts. Both are pretty sharp, custom color, good retention on the move, easy draw.

    Action Sport Holster

    I have tried OWB holsters for IDPA use mostly from several brands. I have found the DARA Action Sport Holster to be the best - excellent fit, attachment mechanism holds holster firmly on belt, and quality materials. I am very impressed.

    Excellent competition holster

    I ordered the Action Sport holster for IDPA competition using my Shadow Systems MR920. I received it on a Friday and used it in a match the very next day. The retention is positive yet it draws cleanly, it's well-made and looks very durable. The fit and retention is much better for a Shadow Systems frame than using a G19 holster.

    Quality and Service

    New gun = new Dara holster. The quality is amazing. My Dara holsters withstand the rigors of competition and several years in, perform perfectly. This are not flimsy holsters. Customer service was helpful when I had questions.

    Holster for S&W M&P 2.0 competitor

    Haven’t received my competitor yet but works with my 9L performance center C.O.R.E. so should be fine with the new metal frame gun . Fit and finish is great and delivery time was quick now I just need the gun I’ve ordered to arrive so I can put it to work. I have other Dara holsters and all are great products that work well ,

    Great Holster

    Been drilling with it constantly. Great retention for what I call a “bucket “ holster-one with no positive retention other than friction. What really makes my day is the incredibly fast shipping. And then, there is the amazing amount of guns to make holsters for, the different types of holster, and they are all able to be bought with a left handed option. I own 3 of your holsters, and will always be my first choice when I need a new one

    Excellent holster for my Staccato XL Good fit with good resistance when drawing. Room for a Red Dot. Adjustable is excellent. Able to size it to my belt and able to adjust angle that fits me.
