    Joke of the Century, or false advertising ????

    Quote: Developed in Israel for the world's military and police services, Holster is a revolutionary step forward in hoster design and molded polymer holsters. .....Holsters utilize a passive retention system that allows for rapid presentation. Unquote.

    speaking of a Forbus standard for my new glock 26.....secure yes...rapid presentation NOT. After 3 pulls and my belt was up around my chin the weapon still is holstered.......what a joke......will stick with my Sticky.........for sure for sure.....

    I tried a Fobus once despite all the warnings against it because at the time it was near impossible to find a paddle holster for the P250SC. Found out the warnings were correct. The paddle is way too flabby, the retention is hit or miss - if you draw very straight it's good, if you have any angle at all, it's a no-go. Ended up with the pistol pointed downrange a couple times, holster and all, and that was it - into the holster box it went.

    I'd put it up for sale, but I can't in good conscience allow anyone else to have it.

    What do you know, the earth is still turning, is still round, and Fobus still stinks.

    I like my Fobus Holsters. I have three. One for my SW99, one for my SigPro and one for my Sig Mosquito. I have no trouble with retention, easy draw or not staying put when I do draw.

    Back when I was young and untrained, I carried my XD in a fobus the very first time I carried. It wasn't until I got home and tried to unholster that I realized I needed a 30 ton crane to get my pistol out of the holster. I promptly put the fobus in the abyss known as "the box of holsters" and never took it back out.

    Have a paddle style and belt style for a 1911 and never had any issues. Not saying I would go that direction again and like my gun you'll have to pry my Crossbreed Supertuck from my cold dead fingers.

    I got a Fobus holster for my P99 a few years ago and it works pretty well for me. Maybe they just aren't all that great for different weapon sizes and shapes?

    False advertising, I think.

    Of all the holsters I have, I've got one from Blade-Tech. It's an OWB paddle design, for range events. Works well, for that. Hasn't ever failed me.

    Everything else for "duty" (CC/OC) wear is a traditional custom leather unit.

    I have a few Fobus holsters. I think the answer to your question of whether it's a joke or false advertising is YES to both. I will say that over time they do loosen up a little bit, making drawing a bit easier. However they are not my favorite holsters by any means. They mostly sit in my holster box, seeing little use.

    Have you ever seen any manufacturer of anything say: "Buy our product, there are hundreds of others on the market that are as good if not better, but we still think you should buy ours".

    If you want to quick draw with just the right amount of retention, Try the Kydex holsters form Cross Breed. I have no problem getting the gun out easily and quickly. And you could probably also hang upside down for a couple of seconds before it fell out. It's also great for racking with one hand at least with a S&W M&P .40 Compact.
