    $125 + tax & shipping. 12-week wait. :sad2:

    All the reviews say it's the most comfortable ev4r. One guy said he fell asleep with it on and didn't notice until the next morning when he got up to shower and realized he was still wearing his jeans & the weapon. :o

    Its hard to see it from the picture but the folded piece is curved. I find it really pushes against my leg and tucks the grip of the gun is tighter than any other holster.

    I think the default configuration might be with a thumb break and non split loops, but alessi will make it however you want.

    Yeah I think I prefer the wider fin on the hideout for more tucking but the one on the pch might be enough for you. Email lou and ask what he would recommend, he's a really great guy.

    It has arrived!


    Showed up USPS Priority Mail


    Inside the box was this bag:

    Here is the holster by itself:

    Beautiful, soft backing.

    Fits pretty good! I had to adjust the tension screws a little but overall my gun slides right in and out. I also had to adjust both clips one hole shorter so that the holster sat a little higher on my hip, otherwise the waist of my pants would sag over my gun a little and make the draw impossible. :hs:

    [​IMG]



    Still, hard to see!

    [​IMG]

    The big downside is the sag the gun makes in the ass-fabric of my jeans. Not sure what to do about that. :hs:

    The sag isn't as bad with my desert shorts. :)

    In other news, I've found that I have to lean forward some during my draw in order to free up the gun. If I try to draw without leaning/bending forward, it gets hung up somehow. This seems to be the case with the shorts and jeans.


    Comments / suggestions / thoughts welcome. :)

    I'd try to bring it around to the side/front a little more and see if you can't conceal it better. My wallet does usually stick a little when I pull it out heh.

    :rofl: I eat like a pig. I just have a high metabolism.

    Moving it forward definately helped with the draw but overall the holster is somewhat less comfy now. :o (Just a little.)
