I'm thinking about two holsters from K&D, for my Glock 23.
As much as I think I'd like their Eagle Defender, the one thing I've liked about a paddle holster is how easy they are to put on and take off.
I know that if I must enter a "no-gun zone," I can simply remove the G23 from the holster and place it in a spare, inside the glove box, while sitting in the front seat of my truck.
But it would easier to simply remove a paddle holster and secure it out of sight, and not go about wearing an empty holster.
The answer to my problem just might be K&D's Laredo Defender.
Anyone familiar with that one? Would that snap-on holster come close to keeping the gun as tight agains the body for concealment as the Eagle Defender? Unsnapping that holster would be faster and easier than unthreading one from a belt, while sitting in the front seat.
I ask this, with the assumption that a good belt would be in use.
I've been making quite a few of the Laredo Defender and have gotten very positive feedback from the customers. I think you would find that it does what it's designed to do. If you chose to order one, and found that it didn't work for you, you can easily return it for a refund - no questions asked. :smile:
The Laredo will treat you much better than any paddle holster that I have ever tried. I sometimes wear the Laredo for 14 or 15 hours a day and find it tobe very comfortable. Paddle holsters start making me sore after 8 hours or so if I can stand to keep it on that long. I like them for range use and such, but have yet to find one that I can wear all day long.
The grips should not create a problem with the holster's current design.
One thing I respected most about CombatEffective's review of the holster was that it was not done immediately after he received the holster. A quick review - in my opinion - fails to give a fair assessment of the holster - good or bad. CombatEffective's review came some five months after he received the holster. Sometimes evidence of a poorly designed/made holster is not readily apparent, and only comes through the daily use and function testing of the holster.
Your right on Combats holster Review i wont review on till after i wear it awhile unless i really am impressed with it .. i got a holster coming to review but probley wont hear much abou tit till june or so
For those ordering the Laredo you will not be disapointed with your decision. I love mine. I have several other nice OWB holsters for my 4006, but I never wear them on a regular basis. I keep them in my desk and loan them out to others on plain clothes assignments.
