The Contender is our top of the line competition holster.  Right Hand Only.


Blade Tech Tek Lok

The Contender Competition Holster

Edge out the competition and keep your firearm secure without sacrificing comfort or style. 


The Contender is consistent, intuitive and an all-around asset whether you’re in high-stakes competition, running practice drills, or having fun on the range. Its low-cut design reduces draw time for specific techniques and features a beveled mouth to make reholstering a breeze. With adjustable retention, you can dial it in for a perfect fit and rest assured knowing The Contender will maintain its consistent retention over tens of thousands of draws. Plus, you can add the Turbo Prop for minor on-the-fly adjustments as needed.

The Perfect OWB holster for non-concealment applications. Using the Contender as an OWB Concealment Holster is not advised. It’s much better suited for overt use due to how far it sits from the body.

*Holster does not come with a belt attachment

    I don’t shoot competition but I use this as my primary range holster and I love it! Fit & Finish is great and I really enjoy the quick draw ability it provides while shooting on the range. Another great holster from Harry’s Holsters!

    Very nice holster. I went the paddle-route and am very please. Sturdy, easy draw, easy to adjust retention, etc. Recommended!

  3. Eric Skow (verified owner)

    I just wanted something simple for range use. This works perfectly and it’s quick on and off with the paddle.

    I just got my Harry’s holster Contender Bundle for the CZ P10c. It fits the firearm perfectly, right from the start. Next i put the Turbo Prop on it and it only took a minute to install. Final i put the Paddle on and that took only 5 minutes to install and adjust. This is a top notch product !!!!!!!!!!!! I well use it for the outdoor range, when i practice shooting drills. 5 Star holster !!!!!!!!!!!

    Love the fit of my P320 X Five Legion in the Contender. The turbo prop is a nice feature. Gives you the ability to adjust the ability of release of the gun on the fly without having to take the holster off. The X-Lock gives you the ability to fit a wide range of belt sizes. Love it.

    Perfect fit for CZ Shadow 2 Optic Ready with a Holosun 507c x2 GR. Quality fit and finish, paired with the X Lock and Turbo Prop. Looking for something to begin my USPSA journey. I think this will work well.

    Fit my SIG X5 perfectly. Retention is very good.

    Harry sent me The Contender for my Canik TP9 SFX and I couldn’t find a better OWB holster for it I even prefer it to the holster that came with it. The Optic cut is perfect and the H lock is genius. I get people asking me where I got it and really admiring the ease of use of the adjustable H Lock system. This holster is great for the range!!

    First, great customer service – very responsive (forgot to order the blade tech tek lok) – they took care of adding it to my order. Shipped promptly and arrived perfectly. The holster’s retention is perfect out of the box… could not be happier. Definitely will be a repeat customer.

    done fit right and perfect on belt

  13. Frank J (verified owner)

    Good overall. Sits a little high for USPSA. Used on a CZ P10F 5″ Competition Ready.

  14. Dan (verified owner)

    Works great for sig xfive, excellent customer service, would order from again

  15. Gustavo Zumbana (verified owner)

    Great holster For my Cz shadow 2 in combination with the turbo knob and blade tech lock . The retention once the turbo knob is tight is amazing , literally can’t pull the gun out of the holster . Harry’s holster did great since there is not a lot of support for the shadow 2 holsters .

  16. Kevin Pagano (verified owner)

    Great Holster so Far. If you shoot competition, this is a fantastic option. If your just doing drills at the range it is also a great holster. Couldn’t be happier.

  17. Vince Taylor (verified owner)

    Great holster and customer service, I’ll be ordering another for my CZ.

  18. Michael Kronsperger (verified owner)

    Great holster, extremely positive retention for a draw to defeat system. Plenty of mounting options with this system. I plan on upgrading to a QLS soon. No range time on it yet but very happy so far.

  19. Will H. (verified owner)

    I bought this for my Canik TP9sfx with the blade tech mounting system, the gun fits real well in the holster my only complaint is that this combo that I purchased sits a little higher on my hip than I’d like I’ve read in other reviews that I can buy another component to fix that issue so I might be looking into that. Otherwise I love the holster.

    I recently ordered and received this holster for my sig P365X MACRO. This holster does non’ t fit it. I;ve tried contacting them about this issue for over 2 weeks. Sent more the 5 emails no answer called they wouldn’t answer so i left voicemails 4or5 no return calls. I can’t review the product never got to use it but i can review the customer service. It doesn’t exist. Hope this helps others.

      We recently received your review. First off, we don’t make a holster for the P365x Macro so it’s impossible that you ordered one. The holster you purchased is a Sig P365XL holster. We don’t have a company phone number so you can’t call us. I checked this email address and the only email correspondence we have involves a request for a military discount which we responded to. so it’s impossible you emailed us five times.

      If you did email us in a response to your order confirmation or shipping notifications, you get an automated response asking to reach out to our customer service email, which is provided in the response. That could be in your spam folder but you would have received the response if you emailed us five times. We’ll be happy to help you but we have to hear from you.

    First, I have to say that the customer support from Harry’s is simply incredible. I have 100% confidence buying any of his products and you should too. You will not be disappointed.

    My favorite thing about the Contender is the fit and retention. This thing is a glove for my Glock 34. The gun snaps in and stays put until you’re ready for it. This holster body is also lighter than a lot of other options, but still very rigid, which is nice if you’re carrying it around all day at a match.

    The Contender is my second holster from Harry’s, I also have a Singleton which is just as awesome.
