    Kydex hybird tip if you are interested......

    While waiting for a full kydex clam shell AIWB holster (3 months or more) I am having to make my Old Faithful serve the duty....

    I require a high ride (for full shooting grip extraction) and I require close to body for concealment.

    I have altered my Old Faithful to do both with the addition of a wedge.

    If you use this kind of holster you may be interested in this post......if not thanks for stopping in.....

    You hot glued a pickle to the back of your holster?!?! J/k I guess if it works, how is it for all day comfort? What exactly did you use, a sponge?

    I have to admit, that looks strange but as they say"whatever floats your boat".

    It is a soft spongy form of styrofoam very soft and very comfortable. I don't know the technical name for it......

    Does this not adversely effect the concealability of the gun with it pushed out away from your body like that?

    Question

    dben: If the gun's butt-end is pushed further in toward your body, then the lower portions of the holster are shoved outward, yes? How does that impact the concealability of that end of the rig, pooching out through the fabric of your shorts in the way it appears to in that last photo? Or, is it a problem at all?

    I was actually thinking about adding some foam to an appendix rig I just bought. I have a little bit of a gut so I figured adding foam to the bottom of it would balance it out.

    I was referring to what appears to be some outward/forward movement in the fourth photo that you'd previously posted (this one). But then, it's a little hard to know for certain with so few views of your pre-change look versus now. Perhaps it's really not an issue. If not, great! Reality is, most everyone will just assume it's a wallet or some other "thing" in there, if they notice at all, as always.

    I do carry a wallet in that front pocket...actually the tip of the Kydex shell is at the bottom of the flap of the little fake pocket (with the button) on the front of the shorts....I folded the shorts up under the bottom of the entire leather backing so the entire rig is only this deep........

    Mike, thanks for the link....I have to have a higher ride height than this holster allows...for me it's just way to close to the belt line......here is about how close it is and I can't get a full firing grip which is something I demand for my holsters..

    The only way to get that full grip you are referring to is to have 1-1/4" between the bottom front strap of the grip and the belt-line. That can be achieved either through canting the holster forward or raising it upward, or a combination of both. The lines you drew through the belt loop does not accurately demonstrate how that holster will ride, as they actually depict a rearward cant. To be more accurate, the lines should be parallel and at about 90 degrees with the slide edge.
