    Mini Review

    Holster got here yesterday. 17 days from order to mailbox.

    Fit and finish is good. Wears excellent. Good concealment. Really no problems or negatives. Time will tell.

    I ordered the K6 interchangeable IWB Latigo Hybrid 5* with kydex belt loop for my carry gun in my sig line. Fits nicely. Nice and crisp, no sloppiness.

    Here's a tip if you want to get one too: There are two option for each holster- ie you can get a #17 in leather or a #K6 which is the same thing but kydex. Kydex is a little cheaper. If you order the latigo hybrid ($30 increase) vs the leather hybrid ($40 increase) for the kydex version instead of the leather version you will save about $15. For instance, my holster was a $40 holster plus $30 for the latigo leather hybrid option for $70. If I went with the leather version for $45 and the $40 leather hybrid option my holster would have been $85. $15 may not seem like much money but I make $5.40 an hour so 3 hour's worth of pay is a lot of jing for me.


    I will post pics later this afternoon after class. Check back around 4pm eastern.

    Not surprised you like it... I have two FIST kydex holsters I use all the time. May have to try this model sometime.

    Thx for all the pics - helps enormously to see that for those not familiar.

    Good to see someone else with snub CT grips!

    Actually that's a pretty sweet looking, very simple designed little holster.

    Looks like your 605 huggs against your body nicely for concealment. Good to know thanks.

    Oh, and eat something dude! SHEESH...........

    LOL he can have some of me... I'm trying to lose it and he needs to gain it.

    Oh and seriously, be careful with that split kydex loop. I broke mine. It does work really well, but don't abuse it.

    I find the plate with the hole for the belt loop to poke through is much sturdier and works well but it's heck on your pants.

    I'm using the solid kydex loop and letting the gun travel wherever it wants to until it settles in place.

    It conceals so well it is pathetic all the CCW no-no movements I can make and not have it print. I can bend at the waist and touch my toes and not have it print under a light T-shirt. My 1911 I am getting soon will be a different story. My snubbie might be my 'at work' gun. Lot of bending, stooping, and reaching.

    Yeah, 5-10 145# with a brick in my hand. It sucks. High metabolism. I used to work out a few years back. Was on a 4000 Calorie diet and only put on 7 pounds after two years. I gave up. My dad was the same way. He didn't start putting on weight until he was almost 30. I got 5 years to go.

    I was undecided between the leather and kydex attachment, I could have had either. Leather tends to be noisy, so I went with kydex. It seems solid enough to hold up. I usually wear it just behind my belt loop, but I got the split loop just in case it didn't go where I usually put it. It seems either right behind the loop @4:00 or on the loop itself works. Depends on what I am wearing.
