    ? re: Black-Ops Pro

    So I've been looking at new holsters - again. (I really need to get some help. ) I have never really liked IWB, but I recently checked out a Supertuck for my G36 and didn't hate it. Now I thought I would try IWB with my Colt. I love the looks of the Pure Kustom holsters and every one raves about the quality. So, here I am, looking at the Black-Ops Pro.

    I prefer to carry OWB but there are times when IWB would be more appropriate, as we all know. I was wondering how much of a pain is it to switch back and forth from OWB and IWB with the Black-Ops Pro? I like the idea of a multi-function item over single-function, but if it is too much of a job to re-attach for IWB, I might as well just get a dedicated IWB holster.

    Any information is appreciated!

    Thanks

    No pain at all, the OWB belt loops are built right into the holster. The biggest issue if you can even call it that, is if you want to remove the IWB loops, then you'll have to spend about 15 seconds unscrewing the fasteners that hold them on.
    Black Ops Pro is a superb holster.

    Removing the straps is cake. Just need a flat head screw driver. Takes about 30 seconds to remove them.

    It's even easier if you carry something like a Swiss Army Knife!

    It's the only true convertible holster that is as comfortable inside as outside the waistband. The loops are held on the body by Chicago screws. You simply move them to adjust the rise and cant while IWB or remove them for OWB.

    Dont use a screw driver! This can scratch the finish of the screw head. Use a dime!

    I am going to time this procedure right now! I just took off my holster and using my stopwatch on my wrist it took me 29.54 seconds to take the loops off using a dime. It just took me 44.31 seconds to put the loops back on. I was using a dime, both washers, and completely removing the backs of the screws and replacing them in the loops. If that makes since. This was the first time I ACTUALLY timed this. However, I do have a leg up. I do this conversion quite often. When I teach my CCW class I will put it OWB as a demonstration on how to conceal OWB and IWB as the same means. I also convert OWB during the colder months where wearing a jacket is a must.

    Go with the Pure Kustom, you wont be disappointed.

    I have only worn my Black Ops Pro for about two weeks now and it gets more comfortable every day. I am wearing it IWB as I type this. Changing back and forth from IWB to OWB takes less than a minute or so and I also use a dime for the screws. Rocky is a master craftsman and the holster is money well spent. Fits the gun like a glove and drawing becomes smoother with use.

    Thanks for the responses, everybody. They are all what I suspected from other threads and comments. I know that Rocky makes high quality stuff, but I've been burned on multi-function whiz-bangs before. Oh, sure that combination swizel stick/drink strainer/olive pitter looked good in the add, but when you get it home it just wouldn't switch back and forth like it should.

    All joking aside, I had already made up my mind (80%) anyway. You guys all helped with the last 20%.

    Thanks!

    Now I have to make a call to Pure Kustom!
