Fobus is bogus
! Seriously I purchased two holsters made byFobus and returned
both. They are cheaply made crap, that can be broken from the paddle easily
because it is held together with cheap little rivets (although the video is a bit misleading).
I switched to a Uncle Mikes Kydex paddle holster ($24) . It is a whole different design
that encompasses a different "attachment retaining" bracket that will not break off.
Screws are usedinstead of rivets. I'm very happy with the holster and don't really
worry about "retention" issues, as I wear it daily on my hip. I feel that being aware
of your surroundings is a more important than a retention device.Several friends of
mine have expensive retention holsters that are not without their problems.The
spring breaks at the wrong time and you are essential unarmed. In a crisis I want my
weapon in my hand quickly not after pushing a button or lever to release it. God
forbid that spring or snap mechanism malfunctions, your holster could get you killed.
The model of Fobusyou refer to his new and it may be an improved version, however
I would be careful as Fobus is known for junky holsters.
