Thanks for the input everyone!

I have been out of the loop lately (BTW, Sims Instructor school Rocked).

And thanks to the Federal Gobment I can now afford 2 holsters and a new Surefire. LED here I come. Thanks Uncle Sugar.

Don't forget to ask for your LEO discount on the SureFire! Use the savings to get some mag pouches to go with the new holsters Peregrino

I second this! Fantastic products and I cannot see myself using any other holsters -- especially for IWB. The McDanial II is a marvel of functionality. From the thumbbreak options, to the adjustible angles of the belt loop, to the fact that it won't collapse after the sidearm is drawn (enabling one hand holstering)... I have a couple and love them. Been carrying for 12 years now and tried several types/brands... none come close IMHO. I am a customer for life!

Also, his shoulder rig is the best I have seen with the strap across the back to stabilize it (w/o having to anchor it to your pants), and the various options for the off-side (multiple mags, backup gun, knife, etc.)

I use the Roto-paddle holster from Fobus (can be used with or without leg rig)and I also use the Safariland 6004, I'm very happy with both. I use a Glock17 in them and they have never faild me

Also I have used the open type leg holster from HSGI, It's good, but I do not recomended it for other than hard field use and airborne ops.. its a bit bulky for me, but its bombproof made...


Edit:Sorry, forgot it was about a IWB holster....

NDD,

Sorry for chiming in late on this one, but I never saw this thread.

If you do a search (not being an ass, I don't know how to link to it) you'll find that I did a brief review of the G-Code drop leg rig that I got through High Speed Gear.

Like it say's in the review, I've read of some guys having issued with the locking mechanism. But I, nor anyone I know, has had any problems.

I've never used their OWB holsters.

In regards to Andrews Custom Leather, I've spent an enjoyable 2 hours of my evening so far watching him work: https://www.*******.com/watch?v=CQca4DpZrgY
