    How well will it conceal with a loose shirt over it?

    The Fletch conceals well enough. I don't like the thumb snap though and prefer the Combat Master over the Fletch.

    There is a slight chance I could be wrestling with bad guys (do to work) and I think the thumb strap is a must.

    For what Galco charges for an assembly line holster, you could do much better with the leather artists. Sounds like you want an OWB? I'll loan you one of mine to prove it. No retaining straps, but I've wrestled with the big boys and never had one come loose. PM me.

    You most likely won't be able to wear just a Tee shirt, but a good vest or thick top will work. I'd also recommend the Galco Combat Master or the "Concealable", they are rated pretty highly in the quick access catagory.

    The Fletch is one of my favorite holsters, along with the Concealable. I carried a Beretta 84 in one and found it to be very comfortable and well made. It's a good holster, that should last many years.

    I personally think the Galco Concealable conceals better.

    I carried my Baer Supertac (1911) in one for years and it worked just fine. They really aren't that cheap when compared to a Sparks holster. The thumb strap can be a deciding factor.

    bought the fletch in black. Seems to be all I could find as a southpaw, but thats what I wanted so it worked out. Payed 70 bucks delivered. Hopefully it gets here soon, I lost my only holster in a trade... my ccw permit should get here in a week as well.... life is good.

    Anything I've bought from Galco has arrived in about a week if in stock. The Fletch is a good holster for the money. I don't care for retainer straps but that's just me...many do like them.

    OWB Bulman Arrived

    Ordered a LH OWB snap loop for my HK PSK .40 from Bulman, after receiving no response from my 2 order status emails, I canceled the order by phone and immediately ordered the holster and another for my USPC .45 from Alessi. Surprise, after 6 months, the Josh Bulman order arrived last week. The Alessi order should be here soon. I almost returned the Bulman holster without opening the box but my curiosity will now cost me. His holster quality and gun fit are superb. Very comfortable to wear and draw position is perfect, too good to ever return.

    Anxiously waiting for the Lou Alessi holsters, and I’m confident that I will be very pleased. Being an old guy, I consider owning an Alessi holster as an heirloom. In hindsight, should have ordered one of the holsters for the SK in black since all are cordovan. Probably will keep them all! And Lou is a prince of a guy.
