    Finally after 29 weeks of waiting I get my Alessi PCH. I haven't gotten to wear it for a day yet, but I can already tell it is MUCH more comfortable than any other holster I've owned (some generic craps and a CTAC). It also conceales much better than any of the other IWB holsters I've tried. Here are a couple pics.

    :wiggle:

    Sexay, no? :naughty:

    Here you can see the huge curve of the fin that presses the butt against your side. Works VERY well. I can wear it farther back without having the butt printing against my shirt.

    Thanks go to Soybomb on the reccomendation and Mr. Alessi for the holster :coold:

    oh hell no. I'm way too fat for that :rofl:

    Maybe I'll get a skinny friend to wear it and take pics of him.

    I noticed while taking these pics that the snaps seem to print more than anything else. I'll have to call Lou and see if he has some solution for that, or if it's normal.

    I have always wore my up on my hip at about 3oclock. It conceals better for me, and I have ZERO ass so my pants fall down if it's riding at like 4 or 5


    Also, with you shirt you minus well wear OWB

    Also, we fat people can't run so we might have to stay and fight :o

    I thought you died! I'm glad you didn't, I saw the title and thought jesus someone just got another comptac or answer. I think alot of the holsters out there are just popular because they're the only ones the noob's hear about and the guys just gush over their first holsters that aren't 1 size fits all nylon. Alessi's stuff is definately top tier and his designs are I think some of the best. But none of you other fuckers order anything because I want to order a jframe ankle rig soon and don't want to wait a year for it :big grin:

    I am not convinced leather is the option for me.


    As for 1911s, I just tuck them next to my dick with no holster :naughty:

    Does your new Alessi have any reinforcement between layers of leather around the mouth of the holster, or is the leather just layered for extra stiffness right there?

    I don't know what's inside it. It's pretty stiff. It does get a little smaller when I belt-up because it's harder to reholster when I'm actually wearing it. I'm guessing it's just leather.

    I like this one more than the others I've used because I had to keep the others so far forward (at 3 o clock) to prevent the butt of the gun from printing. This one I can wear more like 4:00 and it's a lot more comfortable (doesn't dig into my hip). It really does tuck the butt right up against my side.

    :rofl: naaaah. Just got into my new car and that took most of my hobby time. I'm not sure why, but most people have never even heard of Alessi - I know I didn't until you pointed him out to me. I'll probably end up getting a VM2 as well, just to try it out. I'm pretty pleased with this one, though it's only been a few hours so far.

    That fin is very cool. I wonder why more rigs don't use it.
