Does anybody here use something like this?
I use this with a Sig P365.
Looks pretty good. Is it adjustable for ride height at all? I'd like to have the pistol down a little lower in the waistband.
I would be too worried about the retention ability of holding on to just the trigger guard to ever fully trust that.
This one is not adjustable. If it went any farther it would be extremely difficult to get a decent grip.
I have to ask... why???
Its negating the purpose of a minimalist holster by still coming out to full length past the barrel, so why would you want to give up extra material that could keep your gun securely where it needs to be?
And also the reholster. You'd have to remove the whole kit to get your gun back in every time.
It does hold the firearm securely without the additional material fully enclosing the firearm (thereby qualifying as minimalist) and does require removing the holster from the waistband to SAFELY re-holster. I have no issue with appendix carry but do have an aversion to re-holstering ANY firearm lacking a manual safety without first removing the holster. This style holster works for me to comfortably carry all day with the 365 but not so much with my 3" 1911. That particular holster is already in the drawer.
It's a minimalist in that it has less material?
Ok, but it still has the same footprint as a regular IWB holster, so again, it negates the usefulness of a minimalist.
If having the same footprint, I'd rather have a holster that doesn't have to be fully removed if I have to reholster for whatever circumstance.
Whatever works for you though. Carry on.
@ChrlieWH20; thanks for the reply. @ignoredmember: You bring up a legitimate concern for sure. And one that is keeping me from ordering one of the Minimalist types for my 43X until, and if, I learn more that will satisfy my concerns. So, what are you using for the G48? I have a TT Gunleather KX Lightweight IWB and a PJ holsters reinforced clip Kydex IWB already, but neither is conducive to AIWB. I do like to have the pistol ride relatively low on the beltline, either IWB or AIWB; just a personal preference. Hence, my inquiry about adjust ability for ride height.
Additionally, I have read some comments that the grip of the Kydex on the trigger guard on many of these Minimalist types of holsters is purposely made very strong in order to secure the gun, so much so that some have said it is difficult to pull the pistol without pulling the holster too. Again, a legitimate concern.
I guess my search continues for the perfect holster, in this case,one designed for AIWB for the Glock 43X. I need to go get yet another box to keep these things in...
