Okay the holster that I have on right here
is a retention holster where it is form fitted to a specific type of firearm and it has a
button right here. Right now I can tug and tug and it will not come out unless I depress
this button here and then it releases it. When I push it down, it locks it into place.
This is a strong side holster worn on the hip which is a common place to wear it whether
it is military, law enforcement, private citizen or civilian and it is comfortable and I can
take it and put my shirt over it and you may see a slight bulge depending on what type
of attire I am wearing. If I’m wearing a jacket, it may not be as noticeable. But from this
position here, I could draw from my support side. Draw the weapon, engage the target.
When I am done, put your weapon back in. What you want to get used to doing whenever you
purchase a holster no matter what kind it is, before you carry that firearm you want
to break it in. This stuff is leather. It is real tough and sturdy and is very stiff.
In order to break this in, you need at least between 50 and 100 dry runs before the leather
gets pliable and able to be worked and molded where second nature and it will mold to your
body. It is very stiff and rigid. You may have some discomfort and soreness in your
hip area or wherever you are wearing a new holster. Whether it be an ankle or small of
the back or shoulder. You may experience some discomfort at first. The more you wear it,
the more pliable it becomes and kind of moist and forms to your body and it gets more comfortable
over time. Again, do not get a brand new holster and run out with your fireman and think you
can access it if you need to in a hurry because chances are, you probably won’t.
