Ha ha! I was just showing this phalanx link ( http://www.phalanxarms.com/howto.html ) thingy to someone:ampleworks said:A finish will wear regardless of the holster unless you've got some Star Trek way of holding it without anything actually touching the gun! :shock:
That's my only gripe about the UM paddle. It's like trying to unhook a fish getting it off my pants. I like the holster itself, and the adjustability options. They just need to make a better paddle IMO.msidner said:The UM really requires removing belt and then working the holster off.
Do you use it for concealed carry? If so, does it hold tightly enough against the body to actually remained concealed?blkhawk303 said:
I bought the XD holster from Ajames, and I like it but unfortunately the retention is akin to using red loctite. Even with the retention screw completely removed, the holster comes right out of my belt on the draw every time. Ajames suggested I boil the holster and place the XD in it to stretch it out; I'm gonna give it a shot.blkhawk303 said:Not sure if you all have seen the new Springfield XD-Gear Paddle Holster (the same one they are advertising as a free-bee when you buy an XD) but I got one from Old-School just this past week and it is pretty nice.
FYI, I used to have a Fobus paddle holster and sold it shortly after I got it cause I just didn't like how tightly it gripped my XD. I mean, a firm grip is good but a death grip is just not necessary. When I would draw, my damn pants would practically ride up to my armpit before it would release!
I really bought this holster (the XD-Gear holster) as a "range" type holster for either my 3" of 4" if I have my wife or someone with me and I'm using the Cendex Nighthawk that I also have (and love BTW). It's perfect for that. As for CCW use or to try and use it for IDPA or something like that, I'd look elsewhere.Fess said:blkhawk
How close to your body is it when you have it on.It looks like it would
stick out to far form the pics I've seen of it.
