Plainclothes Holster

Plain clothes officers need to carry a quality holster.  Gun retention is less of an issue for plain clothes carry, since the concealment factor is supposed to prevent anyone from knowing you are carrying a gun.

Still, you want a gun that will carry the gun securely.  That means when you are standing, sitting, running and every on the ground fighting and wrestling with a suspect your gun won't fall out.  Many plain clothes guns are open topped and that's not necessarily a good idea.

You will also want the holster to ride up a little higher than the average duty holster.  That makes it harder to notice when it 's being warn under a jacket and easier to retain by locking your elbow over the gun.  A long holster can stick out from underneath a jacket and risk exposure; that's what the SGT Says.
