    Safariland IWB

    Does anyone here have the Safariland model 27 J hook IWB holster ? What is your opinion of this model ? I currently have a OWB by Safariland for my 1911 but I am interested in the model 27 and how the j hook performs in everyday carry situations. I have seen a competitor ( Galco ) state that the J hook will roll or twist and not give a solid platform to draw from. Any truth to this ? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Welcome to the board....enjoy your stay here...great forum.

    In regards to your J hook question.... MY PERSONAL experience with them is they arent that great. You need the perfect pants/belt combination to make them work correctly and most dont find that combination.

    IMO as a maker, a spring clip/belt hook should work without relying on the pants for tention...or the retention of the hook on the belt.

    The J hook simply isnt designed to do that. Again, just my opinion.


    Shoot well and god bless.
    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice..........Rush

    Thanks Eric. I usually carry in a OWB and have no experience with any IWB .

    I don't want to step on the toes of a holster maker, but... (there's that "but"),

    Eric is basically correct in his assessment, but in my personal experience, I have found IWB "clip" holsters to be great, but ONLY for smaller weapons. Specifically, I find that those type of holsters retain very easily and well for my Walther PP and S&W 642.

    Where you start having trouble is when you try to carry larger pistols in those kinds of holsters such as any double stack or a 1911 pistol.
    One of my "drawer holsters" is an IWB clip type I bought for my Commander, and I couldn't make it stay still without shifting or tilting which is what made it end up as a drawer holster.

    I guess like anything else, the circumstances dictate the use.
