    Just got my new Tommy Theis holster-

    - And it is pretty awesome. Already adjusted everything, comfort is superlative, retention is perfect, and a bit of baby powder eliminated the new leather creak.
    It makes my little SR9c disappear, and hides the extended mag/full grip really well.
    All this for a very fair price, shipped to my door, and in under the estimated time. I'll post back again after it wears in a bit.

    Respectfully,

    Baby powder? Please elaborate.

    When these kind of holsters arrive new, they sometimes "squeak" a little when moving around/sitting. I think it is the leather between the metal rivets. The powder will help the squeak until the leather gets broke in and soften up. Hoping my Theis holster shows up in todays mail. I will add pics when it does.

    Ayup, when the new horsehide rubs against the clips it makes a creaking noise. Not too loud, but if I can hear it, others can too :)
    A little baby powder (with talc) applied to the leather makes it super smooth and completely silent.
    I'll post pics tomorrow.

    My new Theis showed up today. Have been changing the screw pattern to get the right feel. Gotta say, right outta the package feels pretty good. Retention is spot on. Also, have to give big props to Tommy for his customer service. I ordered the holster, it actually came earlier in the week, but my Glock didn't fit in it. Looking at it, it just looked like the wrong holster. I took a couple pics, emailed them to Tommy, then got on his website. Within 5 minutes of my email to him, he calls me on my cell. He asked if I had the green CT Laserguard, yes sir. Well I ordered the holster for the red one, they are different, and it was my fault. Tommy said "I am pretty swamped, will get you correct holster pretty quick" Within a couple hours I had an email saying new holster was shipped! I sent his back, got this one, no extra charge. I do not think you can beat service like that, thanx Tommy!!

    "My new Theis showed up today. Have been changing the screw pattern to get the right feel."

    You do realise that the maker has shifted the bulk of his products liability (for which he may, or may not, be insured) to you, the customer; by providing the pieces for your assembly, like an Erector set? I'd be interested to see the accompanying instructions, which are always material evidence in a products liability suit, right down to the size and face of the type used. Post an image?

    Pretty sure he was talking about the screws that hold the clips on to adjust the ride height.

    That is the best part about working with American Made holster companies. You find people like Tommy who really care about their product and customer.

    Enjoy,

    You must have this confused with another holster maker, the Theis holster came fully assembled. There are extra holes to allow for cant/height adjustment as the other posters mentioned. Pic attached as requested. Been wearing again today, I like it!

    3-4 is where I have been wearing it. I did smooth off the leather edges that goes against my body, only had it for 2 days, maybe 6 hours wearing total, I like it a lot. If this type of holster is what your looking for, this one is a great choice.

    Even though I'm not sure why you think Theis holsters are build it yourself holsters, what kind of d-bag would sue someone who supplied a build it yourself holster kit that they put together themselves?

    People have no sense of personal responsibility anymore.

    And I love my Theis holster for my 4003.
