Good Retention But Feels Insecure

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on October 28, 2010
The holster is typical Fobus, two halfshells fastened together retaining the weapon with an interference fit. It works well. What doesn't work so well is the way the holster is fastened to the strap. The 1911 is a heavy weapon, 26 to 40 ounces, depending on the model. I use this holster with a Defender model, on the light end of the scale and found the weapon would flop about the single point of contact that attaches the holster to the strap. This causes the weapon to rotate around my ankle (or gives the sensation of doing so) and I find myself continually cinching the strap tighter. This in turn causes the strap to move down my leg to the narrowest point, just above my ankle and now the end of the barrel is resting on my shoe and the widest part of the strap is actually inside my shoe a little. I don't know if this is a problem common to ankle holsters but I think they should have run the strap on the outside of the holster to help stabilize it. It just doesn't feel secure even though there's no real chance the weapon will get loose.

This isn't my primary conceal holster I have an IWB and an OWB too, the latter also being a Fobus. I got this holster because an IWB still prints with a fitted shirt and I'll probably continue using it, it just isn't my favorite way to carry, at least not with this particular holster.
Pros: easy to put on and take off, easy to holster weapon
Cons: doesn't feel secure...
Would recommend: No

Outstanding Value!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TN Written on May 11, 2010
I wish I had bought this holster a year ago. I committed the CCW holder's greatest sin: not carrying because of discomfort. This holster has redeemed me and now I carry everywhere it's legal! This fit is great, the cant is right for draw while seated, kneeling, or driving, and the retention point is at the triggerguard. There are no snaps, straps, or buckles. Just draw1
Pros: perfect fit, lightning fast draw, great concealability, right price
Cons: holstering the gun while wearing holster can be awkward...
Would recommend: Yes
