    Looks interesting, but way to thick for my CC purposes.

    Interesting protection, but a bit bulky for CC here in FL...not a bad idea, though...

    Very interesting, and probably good for a duty holster or open carry. However, I'm not a big enough guy to conceal something like that without wearing conspicuously large clothing.

    it seems like a good holster, however, just for Glocks and I am not sure on the fit. Seems kinda big, but for my tactical reasons seems good. A good contender for the Blackhawk Serpa. I wish they would have shown more about the holster and not their shooting. I know they can probably shoot, but I want to see more of the holster in action. I guess I need to play with it. Good looking out Thumper!

    No buttons or anything else to complicate the draw for me

    Agree with comments. Thanks for heads up on this interesting design. The design does not appear to be for pocket carry but makes absolute sense for other carry positions. I pocket carry and realized right away that most pocket carry holsters "slide around" too much. They may not come out of pocket but I did not like the sliding around as I gripped the firearm to present it. Starting with a cheap Mikes, I ended up glueing several pieces of bike tire at the point on the holster where my thumb would normally be as I grip the firearm. It works like a charm and allows my thumb (in its normal place) to basically hold the holster in place as I grip and remove my firearm. I moved on to a real thumb push design with the FIST kydex holster and even though I use its thumb push platform in some pants pockets, I still glued pieces of bike tire as an additional platform slightly lower than the FIST design for added flexibility. I now see other kydex pocket holsters (grandfather oak) that are less expensive and, with my retrofit, would have worked fine. I do not mind having a
    bike tire retro; I consider the holster a tool that is in my pocket and is not for designer review.

    Maybe wallmounted above the closet door...You know nobody looks up when they look in a closet.

    Looks like it would make a good duty holster or for soft clothes details.
