I have a Bianchi (0709?) OWB that fits all of my 1911s. The problem is that I carry my pistol cocked and whenever I am re-holstering, the retention device tends to click my safety off when snapping closed. Can you say "unsafe"? This is because the leather strap that holds the snap is at the wrong angle to snap across in front of the cocked hammer so my action of twisting the snap to make connection brushes downwards on the safety.
I love the holster but I am not comfortable having to double-check the safety every time I re-holster. Any forum members out there that work with leather that could cut the strap off, change the angle of the strap and re-attach it at the right angle for me?
I think it's as simple as cutting off the strap in Pic1 and rotating it about 15 degrees clockwise (in pic) before re-attaching the strap.
Can this be done? Anyone willing to try it for me?
