Anyone using one? Ive used it on smaller guns in the past, and it was definitely comfortable and held the gun well, but never on a full sized pistol. With a retail of $75, I dont want to just drop the cash if I may not like it.

If youre using it:

How well does it hold the gun?
Conceal it well?
Comfortable with the full size?


-Thanks

I carried a glock 23 in a Desantis Cozy Partner with no problems. The holster was comfortable and i liked the adjustable tension screw. It concealed well and carried well. I did have to get use to the angle that the holster held the gun at but after a week I was use to it. I am thinking about getting another Desantis Cozy Partner holster for my sheild.

I like mine for my XDm 3.8. $75 is pretty high, check around for a lower price, MSRP is always higher than actual retail. Amazon.com carries DeSantis.
I wanted a Bianchi Black Widow 5 for my XDms but the ONLY place I could find it was on Bianchi USA's own website and they were charging MSRP (around 64 bux) whereas everyone else was in the $43-$47 range, albeit for the wrong gun. DeSantis is pretty mainstream, there will be several online retailers who can hook you up.

Amazon does have them cheaper than MSRP, but still didnt want to buy w/o hearing some opinions on it as Ive already got 2 other holsters for the gun.

Right, good call. I like mine a lot. Fits well, conceals well, and has good retention. I'm starting to look into some of the hybrids now for EDC, but I still love the look, feel, and smell of a leather holster....enough so that I just ordered a belt slide OWB from Tennessee Holsters for range and plinking/camping duty.

What are the other two holsters and are you interested in selling or trading them off? I've got leather for Sigs, Beretta 92, 1911s, and a few others that I no longer own the guns I bought them for.

Well, down to the one DSG holster. I never tryed the snap when I fit the .45 to the old Desantis. It doesnt close. And the tension screw backed out and I lost that and the rubber grommet.

Probably pick up the Cozy Partner this weekend.
