    Thumbs up New Holster from Side Guard

    The mail man came banging on my door this morning to drop off a package. I was very happy to see it was from Erik at side guard. I was surprised at how postive the retention is on this open top holster. The gun snapped into the holster so loud I would have almost sworn it was kydex. The holster also goes on easier then most paddle holsters I have, I really like this design.

    I just wish my pictures would be a little better. I am no photographer and my real camera is with the girlfriend, so I had to take this on my phone. It doesn't do justice to Erik's work.

    Your new holster looks like it was made in someone's basement! Get a Galco!

    You talking about one of those Galco's that turn into limp spaghetti in a year or so?

    I have a couple of Erik's holsters -- and have another one coming. They are awesome.

    I'm typing this with my LCP in my front right shorts pocket in one of Erik's holsters :)

    I carry my Kahr P9 OWB in one of Erik's holsters every day and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Yep, I got one of Erik's Snap holsters for appendix carry. First Rate to say the least! Great price and fast turn around time!

    I have to chime in also. Erik made me a "slide" for my XD9SC that has been my EDC for 8 months. Fits tight to the body at 3:00. I would recommend Sidegaurd to anyone. If I can make up my mind between the G36 or G30, I will be ordering another holster. I might go with the model you got that snaps on, so I can pop it on and off easier.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......
