Bravo vs Raven
Been looking at bravo concealment and raven concealment, can't decide. Currently live in IL (unfortunately)... But soon to be moving to Indiana and would like to start carrying. I would like to carry OWB just for the fact that I don't have to change my wardrobe. But I'm liking these two holsters because they carry high and tight. And would be semi concealable. Does anyone have experience with these two holsters. Or even better been able to compare them side by side?
Please let me know about your experiences with these!

I haven't used the Bravo, but I have a friend with the Raven. It is very close to the Crown Holsters version imho. I did two reviews on here for Crown and Coffman Concealment.
Crown Holsters - Review
Coffman Concealement - Holster Review (pics)
Crown is a solid holster at a good price. I like the Coffman design. Having said that, the Raven holster is a great holster, but probably overpriced for what you get.

I had a crown for my Glock, it seemed to be well built, and had good retention. I never used it though, sold my Glock then got rid of the holster. Lol.

I just took receipt on a Raven Concealment Phantom holster for my M&P 9c, and I like it. It is well-made with obvious attention to detail. Not sure if this is common or not, but I was impressed to see the S&W logo and the serrations on the rear side of the slide moulded into the holster when it was formed. It retains the weapon nicely but is easy to draw. All in all, nicely done. It may be on the expensive side, but it should last a long time.

lose 5 lbs and carry AIWB and you wont have to change your wardrobe at all. Much better concealment and easier to draw.

FWIW: IWB holsters can be worn under the belt but outside the trousers. They will pull up much tighter and closer to the body than standard OWB holsters and trouser waist size doesn't matter.

I have Bravo Concealment for a full size M&P with light. I like it, can't complain. I switch from OWB to IWB depending on my attire. Bravo was great to deal with also Customer Service wise. I've seen Raven products and have had the same impression a my Bravo. Honestly, I've seen many different kydex products from many different companies. I gotta say, if you pick a reputable company then it's all pretty much the same product. It'll do what you want it to and keep you happy for years.

I was on the fence between Bravo and Raven, but later found Black Dog Concealment. I bought a Black Dog OWB for my VTAC a few months ago. Great holster, options, and prices. They have an awesome selection of IWB, OWB, and magazine holsters. I think they're definitely worth the look.

I was on the fence between the two myself. Bought Bravo. When it arrived the fit and finish were not up to par. I had previous purchase of G-code. There stuff is outta this world bomb proof and fit and finish are excellent. I sent my Bravo back for a refund and bought all G-code. It is in use by the US Rangers and Green Berets. Good stuff give 'em a looksie. www.tacticalholsters.com
PS> I now carry sometimes AIWB with a G-code Haley Strategic INCOG.

I looked at both companies and honestly thought they were to high priced.
I went with this holster
I got one for my FS and my compact. I am very impressed with the construction of them both. I got a 2 mag pouch and a single mag pouch as well. Everything is well made with great attention to detail. I am going to pick one up for my wife's Walther PPQ as soon as funds permit.
