dukalmighty's HOLSTER Review (BIG BIG BIG PICS)
Also I want to apologize for the picture size, I am unsure how to resize them without throwing them into photoshop and resizing, and frankly I'm to lazy to do that tonight.
Anyways just received it today, been wearing it around for a few hours, I'M IMPRESSED!
The fit to my gun (SR9c) is AMAZING, actually so tight I'm gonna have to break it in more before I can freely draw from the holster.
It has great reinforcement to keep the mouth open when the holster is empty. The sweat guard is the PERFECT size, I mean to the cm perfect. He had a SR9 mold and had to cut the holster down to fit my SR9c perfectly, and he did just that.
The quality of the holster is better than I thought it was going to be. I mean it doesn't look like a pure kustom or milt sparks, but then again to me I don't need shiny leather, as I'm wearing this holster IWB. It needs to FUNCTION, that's it. It does just that.
The holster is even adjustable, he put 3 holes in the front hook for me to adjust my cant. It comes with a small amount of cant and I adjust it for more.
The only real negative thing, if you can even call it negative, is the hooks. I'm not even sure what type of material they are, probably a sort of plastic (or they feel that way anyways). There is nothing wrong with them by any means, they work perfectly, I just was expecting metal I guess.... but can't knock them as they work perfectly fine.
Anyways, the pics don't really do this holster justice. I mean, I AM IMPRESSED... for the price I paid, I was expecting HALF this quality of a holster. He made it for me in a matter of 2-3 days, shipped it, had it in 3 more days... so about a week to get it altogether (and think there was even a weekend in there).
dukalmighty (Steve) is AMAZING to talk to and work with, his professionalism and customer service rival the best, A+ for sure.
Again I want to stress that the craftsmanship is VERY good in my book. Again for the price paid I was expecting much less. I'm VERY happy and will be buying more holsters for sure from him, no questions. I just can't afford $175 holsters, and for something that goes in my waistband I don't really care how "cool" they look... for me, needing a good functioning holster, this was it. I would like one day to own a pure kustoms holster, they look very nice, but I will most likely be buying one of these holsters for each new weapon I get.
For future holsters, maybe he could purchase some "pretty" leather (which he actually told me he was thinking of doing) to make nice shiny holsters for those who like that sort of thing.
Other than that, I haven't owned many holsters, so I can't really point out anything else wrong with it, maybe some of you folks can tell some things from the pictures.
