    I've only bought one Fobus, on a whim, and it's now in my holster graveyard. I will never make that mistake again. If you (or anyone else) want(s) an IWB Fobus for a G19, it's yours for the shipping.

    Short answer, doubt it. What are you going to be doing with this holster? Just wearing it around your house or everyday use?
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Ditto - junk and for house and yard use.

    I like them. I have one that has been in service for many years.

    I like them because they are handy. At the end of my shift, I leave my gun belt and all it's attachments in my locker, and put my weapon in the Fobus paddle to carry home. In that way I am armed on the way home without wearing all that crap. It slips off easy and I can place it in the glovebox or seat and quickly put it on if I need to get gas or other errand while allowing me to sit in comfort for the drive.

    They will never replace a good quality leather holster, but for the niche it fills, I will always have one.

    I have one too and have been happy with it. I don't wear it much now though, but still have it.

    Be safe!

    I got one as a free throw in deal on an order from LA Police Gear. Worth what I paid for it, if you get my drift.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    Not good for open carry. No retention system. Kinda sticks out from the body too much like a serpa does for CC. Hmmm so not too much good for anything.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    My first holster was a Fobus, I used it only long enough to get a another holster. The Fobus now reside as the charter member of my holster junk drawer. For the same price you can get a Remora, which you will always use because it is so convenient, even if you end up with a more expensive leather/kydex holster

    I've read a lot of different reviews on different Fobus paddle holsters, some great, some terrible. I picked up a Fobus paddle holster for my .380 LCP, it is the best holster I've ever used. I think it all depends on which model it is, just like all companies, they make some good products and some bad products. Look at the reviews on the specific holster, not Fobus in general. If you are looking for OWB paddles take a look at Blackhawk Serpas too, they are more expensive, but are supposed to be very good.
