Doing my very first IDPA this Sunday and I got the same exact one from PistolGear. It's pretty good quality for the price and should work fine for IDPA. The tech-lock thing is convenient and it allows some adjustabilty on ride height and beltwidth. However, I found it difficult (big) to carry for everyday CCW. I plan on getting a leather Hume single carrier for this purpose when they are in stock.
The match went well - it was a blast!!! My gun (XD40) and my ammo (180gr Wolf Performance) Performed flawlessly, however the shooter didn't During the fifth stage I accidently went back to my old grip (straight thumbs) which when shooting the XD has a tendency to allow my right thumb to catch the slide release - and it did, locking the slide open.
Thankfully, I was able to recover very quickly and it didn't affect my score too much.
I liked those so much I ordered 2! I did order from Blade Tech before one time... I ordered some parts to make a knife sheath "clip on" for my belt. I used the same parts they seem to be using on these mag holders. Works great too! Very secure until you want them off, then... no problem to remove them.
