    That looks very similar to my Fobus brand holster, I hope it's more durable than that. What brand, if you can mention it was used? I have tried numerous holsters for my Taurus Millenium Pro .45 and the Fobus has been the best so far...

    Rob99,
    I have heard of this happening to Fobus holsters this past weekend at a pistol class I was attending. I plan on getting rid of my Fobus paddle holster not because of the chance of being able to snap it off, but rather the paddle holster came loose during a sitting, draw and shoot drill, 2x it came out with the gun while I was sitting. Embarassing to say the least. That drill exposed a weakness I was not aware of and am now looking to remedy that.

    Fobus holsters are specifically barred from use by agents in my agency, for whatever that's worth...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    The word "Fobus" is latin for piece of *****.

    I have had a Fobus paddle break at one of the rivet points and a Uncle Mike's paddle protrude so far from my side that it was useless for concealed carry, even though it was advertised as such. The only kydex holsters that I use anymore is the Galco Matrix and only for range use
    For CCW I carry in leather, usually a OWB pancake with sweatshield that Jim "The Beltman" Speigal makes for me. At $50 they conceal well, don't break and look great.

    I have a taurus mill pro in 9mm and use a Fobus paddle holster and it works good. the only problem is thst it stands out so far at the top that it will not hide under a tee shirt. It could be a good holster if it were redesigned

    that video has been around here a few times, in all fairness fobus has corrected that problem and all of their new models have a steel reenforcement clip that holds the two parts together,

    It sure looks like my Fobus but I only use it when I Shot IDPA because the IWB Leather is so hard to get the weapon back in without taking the holster off.

    I admit that I have not tried anything Fobus or Uncle Mike's has made in the past 2-3 years. Being an old fart I tend to be set in my ways. BTW, I misspelled Jim's last name wrong in my post. It is "Speidel " not Speigal. Sorry Jim

    I have an Uncle Mikes kydex paddle. While it is, IMO, tuffer than a Fobus, it is strictly a "range" holster. With the exception of the Blackhawk CQC series of holsters and accessories, I am slowly but surely coming back to good ol' leather!

    Hey, if that's what you want, go for it. Personally, I used inexpensive holsters for a while, but none can compare to the comfort of my Max Con V. I paid twice the $40, but it was worth every dollar. You pays yer money and you takes yer choice. Me, I'll go with quality.

    I'd have to agree with the FOBUS definition given by Glock'em Down.
