    Check your gear and often

    Unlike me. I have several holsters for my EDC and prefer one Kydex with a paddle. I carry owb but always under my shirts. Went to put it on this AM to run to Wallyworld and picked it up by the paddle. It seemed a little loose but in reality was way too loose. I grabbed a screwdriver and was shocked how far these needed to be screwed in. I wear everywhere to include church and I cannot imagine the embarrassment had this paddle come off. It's something little that I take for granted and will try and be more cognizant in the future.

    Good advice. Sometimes we get so "guncentric" we neglect other important support gear.

    The worst possible holster design, IMO.

    Loctite is great stuff, but is lipstick on a pig with this design.

    This, once gear is adjusted lock it down. Screws will back out over time.

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    Nope, kydex is nowhere close to indestructable.
