    Not that i have ever been upside down and shaken My experience with the express line is that it is a fairly well made holster but i don't think it would pass that test.

    Thanks, I just wanted to try to make sure it holds the gun securely.

    You bet they will. Matter of fact, I don't wear mine enough to actually have it broke in. My Upper Limit Express for my G27 is top notch in my book.

    Hi Ram Rod,
    I appreciate the information. I just bought one off ebay, and am eager to see it.

    windowman2,

    You 'aint really lived until you have hung by your heels and shook a holster.

    Thanks again both of you for the help. I think that holster will hold me until my Alessi arrives.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I have the Premier OWB for my P228 and it "snaps" into place whne it enters the holster.

    The answer is yes to my Mitch Rosen Premier , holding a Kahr T9. It is in the holster quite securely. The picture doesn't show shaking, but I did shake it before snapping the pic.

    Can't beat that Ripley. Thanks everyone, it was a help, and the holster will be on its way early next week.
    I wondered if the lack of boning would adversely affect the retention. Obviously retention is not a problem, which I could have assumed with Mitch Rosen.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    The premier pictured above, and the one I bought for a Kahr P45, both needed to be fitted as they were very snug. Too tight is better than too loose in my book, as too tight can be fixed easily, but as you can see, properly fitted is still tight enough.

    I have a MR Express 5JR for my G17, and I swear the leather is as tough as horsehide. IMO, the Express series is the best deal in leather holsters out there.

    You just might be correct. I bought one, and the retail price is $90 and I got this for $75 incl shipping. I wanted the snap loop holster until my Alessi CQC/S gets here.

    Thanks to all for the help.

    Regards,
    Jerry
