    Side Guard Holsters Review

    I received this a while ago and waited a little bit to do a write up on it because I thought the review might be a little more credible having actually worn it more than once.

    I'm no leather expert, but the quality seems to be top notch and very well made - there's no doubt in my mind it's made specifically for my Springfield XD-S, it's a great fit.

    Initial impression when wearing it was that it rode really high, which soon proved why a good gun belt is important. I took off my previous 'good gun belt', which was one of the Amish ones at Hank's and put on my Galco - what a difference. This pulled the holster and gun tighter and got rid of the wobbling feeling I experienced with the other belt.

    With that out of the way, this has quickly become my favorite holster - as I sit here with it on my waist writing this review I barely know my gun is there, and I'm laying right on it.

    It was hard waiting, but definitely worth it... I'll admit, part of that was my fault being indecisive on which one to buy! I think I might order another with snaps for quick on/off for going to work.

    2 thumbs way up!

    I have a Side Guard Minimalist holster and it is equally well-made (I got snaps with mine so it is easy on/off). They have good products and decent prices.

    I have a min clip for my j frame that I also use for my sp101. I have a min snap on order for my 3" k frame. Every holster I've gotten from Erik has been well made. In our microwave society it's hard to wait but the wait is always worth it in the end.
