Great Holster

by Bika, from United States, LA Written on August 27, 2014
Being in law enforcement for near 30 years now , I've tried , & bought many holsters , having a box of holsters I can't wear. Mostly due to lack of comfort, than concealment.

I have an older original Askins Avenger holster for a 1911 that I purchased in 1984. So, I was looking for a similar holster for my carry Glock 23 for on ,& off duty .

This is the best OWB hip holster I have purchased since I purchased my original Askins Avenger in 1984 . I can carry my G27, or my G23 in this holster with comfort ,whether driving, or standing . Retention is good ,concealment is better than most OWB holsters, as the holster hugs the body .

The two most important things with this, or any leather holster is break in, and a good, quality belt .

Break in took about a week, as the holster was very tight & stiff ,despite the tension device. For a perfect fit, I had to wet (not soak,or submerge) the inside of the holster, wrap my unloaded weapon in plastic cling wrap , holster the weapon, and let weapon stay holstered until the leather dried, and formed to the weapon. After that, either Glock drew ,& reholstered with ease, still have the desired retention .

I've had to use this process even with very expensive ,custom, leather holsters I have ordered in the past . Main difference is , Optics Planet was willing to take it back ,if the hoslter didn't break in properly . Hope to be wearing this one for awhile ,and will probably order more for different handguns I own ....

perfect fit for kahr

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on February 17, 2013
this took the place of a pocket holster and is much faster to get in action. Covers with long shirt . can get to your gun in a car seat much better.
Pros: very comfortable all day long...

Works Well For FN FNX

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NM Written on April 16, 2012
The holster I bought is for a XD/XDM but it fits my FN FNX well. It's comfortable to wear all day and it conceals well. Holds the pistol close to the body and gives you fast access. Just what I was looking for.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Retension, Conceals Well
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes
