    I received this holster yesterday.

    First impressions?

    Two week turnaround for a custom leather holster. Unbeatable. I first contacted Rhome on 5/20, by 5/27 my holster was made and ready to ship out. I paid the Paypal bill three days later and received it today.

    Secondly, my biggest complaint is that I noticed after I already received this one is that they now make one that has wrap-around belt snaps instead of belt loops. :wtc:

    I wore this for about four hours this evening and initial impressions are outstanding. The cant of the backup is excellent, indexes almost identically to the magazine. The backup is in and out perfectly, good retention yet not too hard to take out. The magazine well is very stiff but I wrapped a magazine in the enclosed sheet of wax paper and stuck in there to sit overnight to stretch it out a bit.

    Anyway, I'm not sure I am going to continue to carry it on the belt like this but I will carry it for the next week or so to get impressions.

    The only reason I say I'm not sure I will is because I like the idea of having it in my weakside front pocket 100% of the time and having it a few different places just throws another monkey wrench into the reflexive side of things.

    Anyway, here are a couple pics:

    Looks pretty nice. What's the deal with the snap in the middle between the gun and mag?

    that part wraps around the belt for more security

    Not yet but we are going out of town for the next couple days so I'm sure I'll have plenty of time. :cool:
