    problem with iwb

    I recently went into a restaurant with my iwb holster on my right side ( 5:00 position ) , I had my shirt tucked in, and was able to still conceal pretty well. Anyways, I went to sit down and the metal clamp got caught on the booth's backside and bent my clamp back. This made me mad at myself for not being more carefull and aware, but it also made me mad because I had just bought this thing. I wonder if they would fix it for me? im a new ccw holder so there will probably be alot of lessons to be learned, but it makes me mad at myself because I practice pulling my firearm and practice safety on a regular basis. It just sucks to mess up any of my equipment.

    If you don't think you can bend it back, contact the maker. Most of them are pretty forgiving when it comes to their products.

    They might fix it but I wouldn't bet on it. I guess all you can do is try and see what they say.

    If you bought it from Crossbreed, they will definitely fix it. They fixed mine for free (lifetime guarantee) and got it back to me within a week.

    I hate the cheap metal belt clips. If your holster will accommodate them, you might try some like these: Mounting Options - products new home - C-T.A.C. Standard Clip

    Assuming you're speaking of the clips that hold the belt onto the holster, you should be able to order a couple of spares from the maker for a small sum. Always a good thing to have on hand, including a few spare screws.

    If you think you are going to continue having the same type of problem, you might want to try J hooks, or leather loops. I bet you did a job on the booth upholstery as well!
