Will this work for you?

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 8, 2013
Got this to carry a BUG on duty in uniform. Problem is, the uniform pants are tailored such that it prints a nice gun-shaped lump under the polyester-wool blend--zero concealability--and when you sit down the pants ride up, get snagged on the holster, and then won't fall back down again, thus exposing the gun when you get out of the car. Verdict for the uniform: Completely useless.

However, it worked perfectly under wide leg jeans, boot cut pants and stiffer work pants. Very stable platform--once you get it laced into the boot, which is a pain--and securely holds the gun even when running. Verdict for pants other than those I actually bought it for: Terrific!

So be prepared to spend a while getting it properly laced up, but once you do it will be a good solid, stable and secure holster. Biggest issue isn't with the holster itself, but what pants it will work under. Most uniform pants just won't work.
Pros: Solid, stable
Cons: Pain to set up, won't work in all situations...
Would recommend: Yes

Nice idea horribly executed

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on October 6, 2012
Made of kydex and leather-like material that appears rugged enough. Unfortunately, the method of construction is in layers which add unneeded thickness to the final product.
The holster itself is a solid 1/4in thick on all sides.
The half of the firearm retention strap that stays straight is a separate piece of plastic wedged between the holster and the leg strap.
The leg strap is inexplicably made from two leather-like pieces which are overlapped behind the holster.
All of this layering is held together with metal screws, adding up to a total of 3/4in of space between your leg and your iron which pushes the entire gun out at a weird angle that makes it impossible to conceal at any orientation without wearing hip-hop pants. I measured, from skin to leather, this rig stuck out nearly 3 inches at the widest point.
Pros: velcro holds, retains gun
Cons: does not conceal, far too thick and bulky...
Would recommend: No

BootLock while on duty...

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CO Written on March 1, 2012
I use the BootLock for my duty backup, a Glock 26. My only real complaint is in regards to the wide frame of my compact, not of the BootLock at all. Thinner backups would probably fare better, but either way it is still easy to reach, and is comfortably to carry on my 10-14 hr shifts, Great product! Would highly recommend!
Pros: Not as bulky as vest carry, very slim profile
Cons: I believe it could be designed to rotate more to be flatter against ankle...
Would recommend: Yes
