    I have the "Slide" model OWB for my ultra carry II, which I like very much. It holds the gun tight to my waist and can be worn under a loose fiting T shirt without printing. The quality of the workmanship is also excellent.

    I will say, though, that it took me awhile to loosen it up so that I got a smooth draw. But once I got that accomplished, I am very happy with the holster.

    I had a rough out made for a Taurus 905. It was great quality. Fast shipping. It was a gift for Christmas last year and they really liked it.

    I'm having the same problem. How did you loosen yours?

    Hi Chuck,

    Just bend the leather along the stitching line back and forth and if you need to push out around the trigger guard. The bending along the stitching line usually does the trick.

    Thanks for the business.

    I've been trying that, but I think I just need to keep doing it. I thought maybe he had a trick. :)

    I first followed the suggestion of bending the leather along the stitching line and it did not work for me. What I then did was to wrap the gun in several pieces of wax paper so that it was quite thick, then stick the gun in the holster and let it sit for several days. When I removed the gun and took off the wax paper, the draw was perfect.

    My Ulta Carry in the "Slide" OWB is now my EDC. Because I find IWB uncomfortable, I was looking for an OWB holster that would enable me to carry OWB with just a T sheet untucked here in Florida, and I was really pleased that this holster let me do so, at least with a loose fitting T.

    Hope my system works for you.

    Yes, and it was a good one.

    I have the IWB Tuck Clip for my S&W chiefs special (i.e. model 36). Fit is good, and the quality of the holster is excellent in my opinion (though admittedly this is my first leather holster).

    I've been experimenting with placement of the holster and have ended up liking it in the 4:30 position. Though I haven't tucked with it yet, it's nice to have that option.

    Company-wise, Erik was very good to work with. He communicated well, and turn around was good as well. I'm looking closely at one of the OWBs for my G22, but haven't decided between that style and an MTAC.
