    Finally got my Fist #20

    I was told that I would receive it in 4 - 5 weeks. Unfortunately, it took about 8 weeks due to an injury among the Fist staff.

    In any event, I am pleased with the holster. I had to leave my Kahr, unloaded, inside of a hanes sock and in the holster for two nights to break it in. The gun draws very well and one handed reholstering is a snap. It is very comfortable and the reinforced mouth sits nicely above the pants thus keeping the thinnest part of the holster inside the pants.

    It is a very good design. I left the loops at the highest setting which seats the holster exactly where I like it.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    Great looking holster but I have to ask --- inside a hanes sock? What do you know that I don't? Please share!

    When I first got the holster I was very excited to finally use it. However, it was hard to holster it and VERY hard to draw it. Normally I go with a dress sock to break a leather holster in, but this one was TIGHT.

    Two nights in the hanes sock (which is a little thicker than a dress sock) was just enough to break in the leather. The holster still retains the weapon very well, but drawing an reholstering are MUCH easier now.

    I got my FIST #20 on Tuesday, happy up until the point where I realized that the loops didn't have snaps on 'em. Didn't dawn on me that this was an expendable option.

    Hell ALL my leather holsters have snaps on the loops.

    Now I gotta shell out another $5 + shipping for something that should have been included n the first place.

    But it is VERY nicely made, detail nice, fit good right outta the box. Dyeing inconsistent (back) smell new.

    Very nice holster. I have 2 ordered from them. Its been a month today on the first one.
    Talk about waiting. I've had a holster on order from, ok I won't say who, but a very well known holster maker. On the site when I ordered, it said 8-12 weeks , then a week later it said 12 weeks+. It's been 16 weeks and I was told it would be shipped out last Monday, but its a no show so far. Maybe tomorrow. I'm sure I'll be just tickled pink with it once I get it , but geeez, I doubt I'll ever wait that long on ANYTHING again.
