Just received my "Trapp" holster from Foxx Holsters a few hours ago. I bought one for my newly acquired Glock 27. I am a big IWB carry fan and carry that way about 99% of the time. I've been using an OWB holster the past few days waiting for this one to arrive in the mail.
A little background on my carry history; I've been carrying a Ruger LCP in a Remora IWB holster for the past 2 months. I would carry that gun for about 10-12 hours a day and had no problems doing so. When I bought by G27 as my EDC gun, I wanted to try a different type of holster and was leaning towards an all kydex holster like the "Trapp". I do not like the hybrid holsters as I am not a fan of leather against my skin.
Enough of that, more on the holster. I don't want to make the company sound bad, because I have heard great things about them, but this holster is just "so-so".
A few things that I noticed right away:
The kydex on the inside of the holster, the part that touches your skin, does not cover the entire slide. Due to that, the rear portion of the slide was against my skin and almost digging into it.
The holster is essentially two pieces. The clip and the holster portion that carries the gun. The portion that carries the gun is almost like a clam shell with one big rivet holding it together. Since it is designed like that, the retention is based off of the kydex pinching together between the trigger guard. I was fine with the idea until I tried to draw my gun from the holster and it wouldn't come out. After jerking the gun a few times it finally came out. I had to pull so hard that my arm got tired after drawing a few times.
While having a good amount of retention is good, this is just way too much. I keep my belt nice and tight so my pants/shorts do not sag down, but I felt like that was the problem. The pressure from the belt against the holster was not allowing it to expand to let the gun out. On the bright side, the clip was strong enough and held on to my belt so I didn't draw the holster with the gun.
These are just my initial thoughts and I will wear the holster for a few days to see if I get used to it. I have a Remora holster ordered just in case I cannot get used to this one. Maybe I should have stuck with a Remora in the first place?
Here are some pictures!
