Foxtrot Concealment holsters : A small warning...

http://www.foxtrotconcealment.com/apps/webstore/

I just got mine today for my M&P 40, had been carrying a Bianchi suede IWB holster and wanted better.

The holsters sell for $20 each and mine had $4 shipping from Texas when bought on ebay.


I just wanted to warn you guys.. if you get one and think this is a piece of crap $20 holster...

YOUR WRONG!

I honestly cannot see how he can sell them so cheap with the QUALITY OF MATERIALS and QUALITY OF CRAFTSMANSHIP for $20!

I was most concerned about the belt clip, I figured that was where the absolute cheapest piece of shit chinese plastic would be and in 2 days Id be out $25 and have a busted holster...

Well, the belt clip is SUPER STOUT! And I *love* how its so wide! I know, Ive only had it 20 minutes but guys Im telling you... damn it sam these should be priced at $50 easily and STILL be getting a great value!

Of course Ill post back in 3 and 6 months with a follow up, but am confident it will continue to be gleeful as this.

Molding... Guys, this thing is AWESOME! The molding is SPOT ON PERFECT, the sweat guard is PERFECT, the CUT is PERFECT... there is NO KYDEX IN THE WAY TO GET A FULL PURCHASE ON DRAW! Retention is IMPRESSIVE! I had to seriously back the screw off just to get the weapon back out.. and it STILL had a hell of a grip on it!


I wanted you guys to know... there *IS* a source of QUALITY IWB holsters that will not require taking out a loan!!


The warning part? Well, for the price many might see the package arrive and take a deep sigh... thinking of the level of disappointment that is inside... Warning: Package contains holster that will far exceed your expectations!!


Hope this helps guys- BUY ONE!

Pix coming.


Followup: Ive been using it quite a bit and its more like a $34-$40 holster.. the Kydex just isnt very thick to take it to another level.

None the less.. Its still a comfortable and good holster and I have no complaints at this time.

The belt clip is solid and always keeps the holster firm when drawing.

2 week update:
Holster still running strong.. Im suprised how comfortable it is.. with the tang on clip its easy to take off and put on so stowing it when I get to work is not a paint, putting it back on when I get in the vehicle is not a paint.

Running fine, very happy with it!

Looks good, how long was the wait time to get it after you ordered it? I am currently holster shopping while I am waiting on my permit to be mailed, and don't really want a 8-12 week delay for a holster, lol. And I dont want to spend a bunch of money as I have never carried before.

You don't always need thicker kydex. I've carried my M&P in a Peter's Custom Holster Hold fast for about 5 years now and its a pretty thin kydex. Darned good holster too.

I just received my Foxtrot holster for my 9mm Shield. It is a very nice and thin holster for the $$$. The clip bites down on my belt well and it rides at the perfect height for me. For $23.00 on eBay these can't be beat!

Update: Its been a few weeks, been carrying it DAILY... Im VERY happy with it! The thinner Kydex is NOT a problem, this allows it to present a thinner profile IWB and is VERY comfortable! Running M&P 40 full size here..

Belt clip has yet to fail to impress me, VERY GOOD clip on belt, holster stays in pants, no signs of wear or problems, clip has not cracked, no stress signs where the clip mounts to the Kydex.

To date: 100% happy

Ill update more next month-

Came to see the wife in the hospital this morning, I was half way to the front door before I realized I had my weapon on... Its THAT comfortable.

I have found it will cant to and fro depending on your seated position... which is GOOD because if it is in a position where it may dig a little then you can tilt it for comfort, which works out fine. Just walking around, it keeps position and doesnt slip, Im still happy with it.

I prefer the full Kydex style... where as leather against the skin will eventually soak up the salts from your sweat, etc.. etc.. etc.. Kydex will be impervious to sweat (obviously).
