    okay wtf, I had one of these for my 1911 and it was great, but fuck this thing makes my glock print no matter where the fuck it is.


    With my MTAC, it pulls my gun soo much closer to my body, where as the VM2, if I have it at 3 o'clock I will hit the corner of the back of my slide all the time...While it is very comfortable, it just will not work for carrying my glock.

    looks like Im gonna have to put this up for sale :madfawk:

    Word. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay that much for a piece of leather I can't try at least once. My Milt Sparks SS2 has been awesome. But I had a chance to try it first. Three of my friends carry SS2's. None of them has a VM2.

    Will you trade for two safariland certificates woth $100 each. Good for any safariland gear from their duty line. This includes any of their conceal carry holsters. Certificates can be redeemed at any safariland dealer or from safariland themselves. I pulled these off a prize table

    before you go and sell it, put it at 4oclock and make sure you have a good tight gunbelt, If you don't have a gunbelt that compliments the holster there is no point, what are you using as a belt?

    Also it is brand new, it will take about a week to two weeks of daily wear and draws to get it to where you want it.

    ahh fuck it man you gotta break them in, it just doesn't just fit out of the box, its leather it has to learn the gun and get a memory of how you are gonna carry it.

    I have a good belt, its a beltman belt.

    I think the design of the VM2 just doesnt suit the thick frame of the glock that well. Ive tried it every position, I usually carry at 3:00, so Im not going to change my carry position over a new holster.

    As I said, i had one for my 1911 and it was real nice, but it sucks for concealment with my glock.

    Except the fact its not the leather or it not being broken in, its just the same its designed for the gun and the way it conforms to my body the rear of the slide sticks out about an 1" more than my MTAC.

    The forward loop is wayy too close to the gun causing the rear of the slide to really protrude out, while the MTAC the clips are a bit more spread out causing the belt to easily conform to the gun and body.

    The forward loop on the vm2 has a pretty generous downward cut though that should let the holster bend a little there beind pulled to the body by the back loop. Personally for me this system works better than wide set loops. My holster box is pretty big though so I understand all about experimentation.


    Watch out too thomor's been to radio shack....he's prototyping ;)

    Sounds like you found out that a holster that works for 90% of other people, won't work for you. It sucks, but holsters are a very personal thing as is carry position. I carry all my IWB at 3:30-4:00 and Vm2's work the best for my body type.
