9 Best Bersa Thunder OWB Holsters | Bersa Thunder Holster

We tried out several different Bersa Thunder holsters and came up with this list of the 9 best Bersa Thunder OWB holsters. Outside the waistband (OWB carry holsters)  are better for a few reasons. To be specific, OWB holsters are better for their grip, re-holstering and are comfortable. They hold your gun securely to your hip.

The Bersa Thunder is a great handgun and it’s an amazing carry gun.

Let’s begin with our favorite Bersa Thunder OWB holster and the one we recommend.

Comp-Tac Paddle Holster – Straight Drop


The Straight Drop is Comp-Tac’s number one bestselling outside the waistband (OWB) holster and is used for both concealment and competition. In fact, it is the most popular holster in IDPA and has been used by several national IDPA champions. Their Straight Drop is the closest (to the body) riding holster available on the market. The paddle backing allows limitless positioning on the waistband without interference from belt loops. The paddle backing curves over the belt and pants so the paddle portion actually sits inside your waistband. There are two forward-curving tabs that “grab” on to the bottom of your belt to help stabilize the holster while still inside the waistband.

This model is fast and convenient to put on or remove throughout the day all while keeping the pistol securely holstered. The Paddle Holster is available with one of two cants. One option is with a speed (Straight Drop) cant; this is ideal for competition use and allows for the fastest draw. Full-Coverage or Slide Version. A “Slide” version is available for select models. This is an open-ended holster made to fit a series of frames. The holster will fully cover the shortest barrel length in a series; longer barrels of the same frame will stick through the bottom of the holster.
