    Kydex Shoulder Holster Retention

    Looking for opinions.

    Do you think a horizontal shoulder holster made of kydex would have enough retention to not need a thumb break?

    This would be a custom holster that I make myself.

    I have one, it has two settings. Not enough retention, and "Good luck getting your weapon out today".
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Nope, I use a Blackhawk SERPA with the shoulder rig straps that works well however.

    They make really nicely constructed Kydex shoulder holsters that do not use a retention strap. Looks like they use a tension adjustment screw.

    That might be really tricky/difficult for you to do as a home DIY project.
