    My buddy owns one. He seems to like the holster.

    I have one for a 5 inch M1911, also works well for my Browning HP. I use it mostly for range use, but I have occasionally used it for CCW.

    I have no problems with it.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Does it hold the firearm tight to the body? It looks like it is a bit bulkier than a regular holster and protrude from the body more.

    I have one for a 1911 government. I like the holster. I like that my gun will only come out if I push the button during my draw. I find that it conceal like any other OWB holster.

    The answer is no. It doesn't snug your gun up like a good pancake type leather holster. For this reason mine just sits in the holster box. Nevertheless, it's not a bad holster for the price.
