My response here initially was based on your comments.
With respect to the Maverick Defender I have in my hands now, it has completely lost its form and shape. It's like holding a suede-only holster. A wiser decision most likely would have been to contact either Top Gun Supply or myself and let us know of the fit issue. Be that as it may, I've agreed to replace the holster for you.
Again, you have been the only person in the approximate 400 of these holsters to express these comments. If it was a design flaw, I suspect it would have became apparent some 395 or so holsters ago. So taking that information, combined with what you've presented to me in the return of the Maverick Defender holster, I can see where you most likely have treated the Dakota Defender in the same way.
Send the Dakota to me - I'll refund your money even though you bought it from Top Gun Supply.
