    Is This a RH or LH Holster?

    So I send this guy an honest question and comment, basically that he is advertising this holster as a right hand model, but personally I think its a left hand. He snapped back at me with a rude response, basically telling me I didn't know what I was talking about. I think he actually makes these holsters himself. In my opinion, the full leather side should face outward to hide the outline of the gun in your pocket.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    So what does everyone say here. Right or Left?

    Looks left hand to me, unless the pic was taken with a mirror.
    Most pocket holster cover the outside to mask the shape, but extra leather at the top makes hard to tell one for the other??

    Just my 2 cents.

    Agreed, it's a right hand. As your hand goes into the pocket the back of your hand will be to the outside of the pocket.... and this gives easy access to get a hand on the gun, pull it, etc. The back side of the holster... being larger, will catch on the inside corners of your pocket so that the holster does not come out of the pocket along with the gun when you pull it.

    It would never work the other way around.

    PK is right on as usuall. It is right hand. What is confusing is that it looks like it has an anti print panel. However it is a wrap around design so the panel won't move out of the way on the draw if carried left side. not a very good design and too much $ wise for what is offered in any case.

    Well, ttsail is correct about the leather being on the outside of a holster to cover it, but good luck drawing that gun with a left hand from a pocket.

    It's a right hand draw!

    You mean right front,If that holster is carried in the left front you would be grabbing leather instead of the gun

    Hmm... amateur leather work and bad attitude towards a prospective customer? I'd say it's a 'no-hand'.

    At first I thought it was a anti-print panel, but it's the back of the holster. Assuming (?) the pistol has a safety, the leather covers the safety and provides a thumb push.
    Right.
