    Fobus paddle for 1911. Kimber Ultra CDP II

    I have the Fobus Evolution series paddle for my 5" M&P Pro9. I use it for the range, I really like it as its very comfortable. With the colder weather coming about, I was thinking that it would be nice to have one for my carry gun.
    I went to Gander and found the fobus paddle for a "1911" But it did not lock in, and was very loose. Does anyone know of a model that works well for the CDP?

    Fobus holsters vary in fit from holster to holster, you can mod them to fit better

    If the play is in the housing of the holster, then I would recommend using nickel size, fuzzy, Velcro tabs to hold the gun in firm. The trigger guard is the point of retention. If you can shake the gun Unloaded upside down in the holster, then the retention is fine. You can also contact us about getting an RMA# and seeing if another holster will work.
    Personally I'd just rather buy a holster that's going to fit right to begin with. You dropped some coin on your CDP, don't skimp on the holster.

    I highly recommended Safariland paddle holsters. I have the 6378 for 5" 1911 and it's great. Thumb switch retention, felt lining, very sturdy construction, and fairly inexpensive...

    They also have non-ALS paddles if you don't want the retention switch.

    Someone here once stated that it's illegal to carry a 1911 in a Fobus. I'm not sure - it may vary state to state...

    I'm pretty sure it's a natural law, like gravity or Newton's laws. To defy it would be an infraction of the highest order.

    Fobus...

    for those who don't know any better...or just don't care about themselves.

    You spent the bling on a Kimber and are going to carry it in a Fobus? You are kidding, right?

    The best paddle on the market is made by Kramer. Spend once, cry once.
