At first I wasn’t sure I wanted a leather holster. As far as comfort goes they can’t be beat, but what about retention?
After seeing ads for them on Facebook for months I decided that $20 isn’t much to spend on a test case. So I ordered one. This is the holster with a mag carrier attached, plain, no frills.
I slid my handgun in empty and gave it the upside down shake test. My pistol didn’t move. Ok, time to add the weight, put a loaded magazine in and repeated the test. A tiny amount of movement. I reason that once it’s stretched tight and belted on my pistol won’t move and so far that has been correct.
Comfort is off the charts. There are no hard edges pressing in to my hip and it’s almost like I’m not wearing a firearm at all.
I was initially skeptical about their “generic” sizing. However the trigger is covered, the leather is tight enough to have to stretch to fit allowing a firm hold with a good amount of passive retention.
Since I only ordered the cheapest they had, I am now curious about their more expensive offerings, especially since some have stamped art offerings.
This is after 2 weeks. I’m going to wait awhile yet to see if the leather wears out quickly or not. It is not soft leather, but the outside of the leather seems to be softened for comfort, just the surface not the entire thing.
This post is based on my opinions and observations, it should in no way be taken for official advice by me, the USCCA or any other organization.
Note: the picture IS of me wearing the holster with my firearm. I had to pull my outer shirt up for the picture.
