    Mine is for my P7 PSP... I really dig it.

    Is that model open on the muzzle end, or sealed up?

    Why do you consider open better? Just curious.

    - Closed muzzle traps dirt and grit down in there.
    - More important though, leather gets moist from body and ambient heat and humidity, open muzzle lets inside dry out quicker, less chance of funky mold. Has ventilation at all times, even when gun is in it.
    - Makes holster a little longer than it needs to be, has to be stitched with seam down there.
    - Also, in my case, I'm able to use my XD SC holster also with XD Service, as extra inch of muzzle just goes down through open end of muzzle.

    Not of overriding importance perhaps, but certainly open muzzle is my pref.

    A little correction here folks. The Thunderbird is an open muzzle design. I have one myself and have handled several others. All open muzzle.
