    Nope, and won't. OCers have no need of such a thing.

    I'm sure OCDO would appreciate your advertising dollar.

    1. SHTFGear who makes IWB holsters, is a member of this site.
    2. His holsters are way more comfortable than the ones you linked.
    3. Advertisement fail...

    Thumbs down Fyi

    Well isn't this nice an OC Forum with members who have real bad attitudes. I believe in my right to OC as much as any of you, but I do not have to flaunt it and shove it in face.

    FYI - I was not trying to advertise Stealth Gear or IWB holsters. I just found one I like and thought I could share w/o ridicule, obviously not. oh and btw keep your SHTFGear.

    I figured there would be decent professional people posting here; guess not see you all later

    Saw no one with a bad attitude, nor anyone flaunting it and shoving in anyone's face. Did not see that you were ridiculed.

    Did see that your first two posts mentioned a product/manufacturer from the same location as yours - raised the question if there was not a self-promoting connection.

    no self promoting intended but that is what I would expect from a bunch of hot heads. So glad I am leaving the group.

    "Hot heads"? Really? Would seem that you are more of a provocatuer than a member of the "group."

    If 3 borderline smartass comments are enough for you to quit such a productive forum after 4 posts, you probably wouldn't have lasted very long anyway. The 3 posters that made those comments are, from what I've seen in my limited time here, 3 quite intelligent posters. You should read more and post less in the beginning. It helps.

    well Mr The Truth
    You are right; I look back on my comments and hang my head. I should not let little things bother me like that. I apologize to all on this string. It was I who was the hot head no any of you.

    Let it be known though that I have no ulterior motive in recommending a excellent holster other than I think it is real cool that it is manufactured in UT, and it really is a comfortable holster.

    Welcome back! Enjoy your stay, and take it all in with a grain of salt and an open mind. You'll be fine!

    Sorry about the negativity I would try the SHTFGear if I hadn't already spent $200 on holster and mag carrier. Oh well maybe in a few months then I can give a true comparison.

    New products and their comparison are always welcomed - individual preference for different folks.

    Not my typical thought/reply but -

    Hope the door hits you in the butt on the way out.

    Without an explanation of why that holster was "perfect for IWB carry" as opposed to all the others that were short of perfection your post was pretty much a drive-by with lots of similarities to bot-generated spam. Folks here are very wary of spam here because it threatens the continued existence of OCDO.

    Although I am not a fan of IWB carry I did check the website - a single product with lots of exposed metal washers on the skin side. Strangely, many people find that irritating and many other makers have responded by covering their hardware.

    stay safe.

    I made my apologies to everyone. Lets accept them and let it go. As for the exposed metal the padding absorbs all of it so unless you go commando it shouldn't be an issue. Also they have more than one product if you had looked more closely you would have seen that. I have tried Bull Dog, Galco, and some cheap off brand holsters. While most open carry is done with OWB holsters; as a business man who wears his shirts tucked in most of the time and carries a compact weapon an IWB gives me as much visibility as an OWB and I feel it is much more comfortable; although it is a pain getting it cliped over my pants and belt each day.
