    My Alessi CQC/S arrived

    Obviously I haven't had much time with it since it arrived yesterday, but I did notice some things I thought would be of interest.

    I've tried a lot of leather holsters and most have to be broken in and even stretched to get it to release the gun satisfactorily. The CQC/S is fits the gun perfectly and although it's got a bit of the normal leather drag, it releases the gun fairly freely and doesn't pull your pants up to your arm pits like new leather can.

    It is a beauty, the leather is well detailed and finished. One thing I noticed was that the black coloring did not come off on my light color khaki pants like some holsters do. The leather itself is relatively thick and unusally "hard"; it's almost like Kydex it's so stiff and I like that. Yet, it is very light. The belt loop snaps are generously wide which resists "leather stretch" and attaches the holster to the belt very securely. The way the holster is designed, it pulls both the grip and muzzle into the body tightly which enhances concealment.

    I wore the holster when I walked my dog yesterday and to me that's kinda my ultimate test. If a holster is not going to be comfortable, I've found it shows up on a long walk. This one is comfortable! Also, because I walk up and down a hill four times, I've found that a lot of holsters tend to slip forward on the belt on the down hills. This one doesn't move.

    I am so far, very pleased with the holster. It is indeed, very easy to get on and off - even seated in the car.

    I'll try to get some pics posted - if I can find some time.

    Edit:
    The reason the normal 16 week delivery time was cut to 2 weeks, was because Alessi had made a run of these very holsters for the Columbia, Missouri Police Department and he had a few extras.

    Sounds like a fine rig Ron - we are lucky to be in the midst of some very fine holster makers.

    A pic would be great if you can.

    'Cause I'm lazy and haven't set the date on my camera in a while.

    Nice looking rig. It looks as though it stays pretty close to your body. Does it conceal well with an untucked shirt??

    It does hug up close to the body. I usually wear a unbuttoned, button up shirt as an over garment, but I assume you mean by untucked shirt, maybe a tee shirt? I'll give it a try with a untucked tee shirt.

    The particular holster I got is a shallow cant so it may print before a 15 degree (FBI) cant would. I asked for the shallow cant so I don't have to bend my wrist so sharply to get a grip on the gun.

    I would like to know how it conceals with a tee shirt/golf shirt type. You probably need an IWB to get away with that.....

    Nice rig, Ron. Let us know how it works for you in a few days, too. I just know that you'll be wearing it as much as possible. Heck I had to wear my Fobus paddle all the time when I first got it. You and Chris are getting me to start thinking OWB, and that looks like a pretty good solution. THX for the pics.

    Looks nice Tangle. My next rig will be for my XD Tactical. I do not usually ccw this weapon however a belt holster for the range might be nice. If it could be used as a concealable holster when the weather and clothing permit, so much the better.
