    Outside the Waistband Removable Holster

    I live in Florida. It appears that Open Carry will be legal, based on a court case that is about to end.

    My question is this:

    I am trying to find a holster that is outside the waist band, but can be removed without taking the pants and belt off, and pulling the belt back through the holster.

    I want to be able to remove it just like I can remove my IWB Crossbreed SuperTuck - just pop the clips loose from the belt, and slide it out.

    Any ideas - I carry a Beretta PX4 Compact.

    As a lover of paddle holsters I feel kind of dirty recommending this (but full disclosure: I have & use several):

    With a little bit of thinking and some Chicago Screws you can mount leather holsters to them. Same for just about any other manufacturer's plastic/kydex holsters - although sometimes it involves filling holes with J-B Weld and drilling new holes.

    stay safe.

    Bwahaha. Use their more proper name to make clear the fornication of the unsuspecting holster maker. The threads pulled on a sex-bolt used in my first leather OWB. Fool me once is enough.

    On a sex bolt?

    My guess is that Nightmare has a bit of a fine-motor skill problem, as in threading certain machine screws. (Perhaps if someone were to put a small amount of a certain substance around the hole he might have an easier time?)

    Also, if he were to use the appropriate length he might have experienced less problems with pull-out. (Size does matter.)

    Also, most folks above the age of puberty have discovered the joys of Lok-tite for preventing things from becoming unscrewed.

    stay safe.

    Your guess is ignorant of my career and its dexterity demands. Surgeons like to brag on tying surgeon's knots at the bottom of a tennis-ball can, that's where I started. A particular component that I frequently serviced was threaded in raw unalloyed aluminum for its stable properties in a reactor's near-field radiation.

    Some holster makers have an option for snap-loops instead of slots so you can do what you are asking. Here's an example I found through google:

    As far as finding one to fit your PX4, that I have no idea. Good luck!

    That's a new one on me and I follow Florida OC statutes VERY closely.

    I also OC daily under the current Florida statutes.

    Can you PM me with a link to where you believe our OC laws are about to change?

    Look up James Dean Leather. He's in Florida. Ask for the Mad Spaniard model.

    He handmakes all of the holsters he sells, and the quality is top notch.

    ETA: here's the link: http://www.jamesdeangunleather.com/holsters.html
