    Fist #12 question

    I am considering purchasing a Fist #12 pancake holster. It seems to hug the body quite nicely and aid with concealment. My only concern/question is, how easy is it to reholster your gun? Do I need to add the reinforcement along the top? I have heard that pancake holsters are great for concealment but have a tendency of collapsing once the weapon is drawn. Anyone have any firsthand experience with this particular holster?

    Your FIST #12 is Hardmolded and remains rigid. It does not collapse. I have carried several revolvers in FIST #12 holsters for several years with no problems with them collapsing.

    I have the Fist #12 Basic for my Glock-36...no problem with one-handed reholstering. It's a great holster that hugs the body.

    I have used a FIST #12 for an N-frame revolver, and both concealment, and reholstering, worked very well.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll take the plunge and order one. Any idea on what their typical lead times are?

    Four to six weeks...max (probably in 4 or 5 weeks). I have 3 doz+ Fist holsters.
