Great holster. I own 2 now, one for a Glock 26 and now one for my Glock 19. I shaved down the one I use for my 26 to make it just a little shorter. The edges on the holster are a little aggressive and could use a more "hand molded" feel to make it more comfortable and slightly lower profile. BladeTech does this with there IWB holsters of similar design.
Other than that, Its my favorite concealable holster by far.

So far I am quite happy with this holster. It took me a bit to get used to an Appendix IWB carry however I have found it to be much more concealable than any of the IWB or OWB holsters I have used to date. It is a very simple design, and works well. Retention is positive with my S&W M&P 40c, and the weapon stays firmly in place even with more active movement.

The only concern I have, and it is quite minor is that the very bottom of the metal belt clip occasionally hangs up when lifting my cover clothing up, and out of the way. This again is very minor, and with a number of practice draws I have learned to work around any potential "snags" that may occur.

I don't get some of the low ratings this holster has recieved here. The reviewers seem to be inexperienced with this style of carry, which can be highly body type dependant, and clearly is not for everyone.

This holster has good retention when you wear your belt snuggly.

As far as discomfort from the top or bottom portions, this is largely body type dependant as mentioned above, however I do recommend trimming the corner near the rivets, and applying some foam backing to tuck the grip in a tad more, which also aids in the comfort level.

It is quite comparable to my CCC Shaggy's, without the lengthy lead times.

Would not recommend for S&W M&P

The holster is well built but it is a little uncomfortable to wear. I would not recommend buying this holster for a Smith and Wesson M&P Shield. The way it is designed it presses against the magazine release on the gun a releases the mag. with little pressure applied. If you buy it for the M&P you will need to make your own modifications to it to safely carry it in this holster.

S&W 40C model. Looks good, rugged enough, but it's way too tight!! Insertion is fine, but it takes two hands to remove the gun. Not acceptable for concealment purposes... Hope it's just this model. Add on the two week delivery time--no thanks

Simple and effective solution for IWB concealed carry. There are very few holsters that I would rate "excellent", this is one of them. Simplicity rules when it comes to tactical equipment, weapons and holsters. A weapon is only as good as it's accessability and carry options, in this case holster. This holster has everything you need and nothing you don't. Overall thinner than Safriland Model 18, just as good at a fraction of the price.

I've been carrying IWB for many years and was looking for a new design. This was an okay attempt but it's not at all comfortable. The holster design is too big. The top piece is too tall and digs into your body and it's too long, digging into the body their as well.
