    Officially in love--Safariland ALS 6378

    Bought one of these specifically for the Guns Across America Rally. I wanted the active retention for the extra security while roaming the "big city." I wore it from about 7:30 this morning, all through a 3 hr car ride, 4 hours walking around, and a 3 hour car ride home. 12+ hours and still super comfortable.

    It comes with both paddle and belt loop attachment. I wore it with the paddle, and found it to be very secure (gotta take off my belt to remove it, it's so tight), as well as extremely comfortable. Safariland designed their paddle spot on! Now, I wouldn't call this a true "concealed" holster. But for those who are not concerned about printing, or are open carriers, this is a fantastic holster.

    That's all. I just wanted to gush about finding my "it holster." And it only cost me $145 ($45 for the ALS, $100 in "mistakes" LOL).

    Great to hear. I'm looking forward to putting my new holster to the test as well. I just received a Safariland 6378 for my XD45 from Streicher's. It was less than $40 during their duty gear sale and I couldn't pass it up. The quality is exceptional. I'm very impressed with this holster. Now I just have to decide belt attachment or paddle.

    Hey, I found this thread when searching the forums and figured it was better to respond to this than start a new one...

    I'm looking at the 6378 for concealed carry. How far out from your body does it stick out. Everything about the 6378 looks good, but I can't figure out how far it sticks out and how well it conceals (I usually go OWB under and untucked tshirt).

    (Also, can it be set up for backward cant - i.e. for crossdraw? The video doesn't look like it, but I'd like to confirm).

    Thanks in advance...

    You more than likely will be very disappointed with concealment using a Safariland 6378 ALS for concealment just under a regular t-shirt. It is a fantastic holster, but not really built for concealment. Under a jacket or Sport Coat...............sure, but not under a t-shirt.


    Information about the Model 6378 ALS is at the 16:07 minute mark in this video.

    The new Model 5378 GLS holsters might work better at concealment since they have a narrower profile than the ALS, but still has a locking system.
