DeSantis 106 Sof-Tuck Inside-The-Waistband Handgun Holsters
G.I. 1911A1 sof-tuck
I bought this holster to exercise my concealed carry option for my 1911. I wanted a quality holster that I could conceal effectively beneath a dress shirt, that would go as close to possible undected to the trained, and untrained eye. I liked the J-clip attachment that slides between your belt, and pants, and hooks securely up under the bottom of your belt. I feel like it secures the holster and stops it from coming out of your pants on the draw more effectively, than the standard clips everyone else is using. Because I reside in a warmer climate, I also didn't want the massive bulk of most of the competition. To me, less was more. Yes I can wear it comfortably all day, although I don't usually. I usually opt for a Colt .357 snub in a Blackhawk inside the waistband holster, because it's just plain easier for me to sport that rig, in casual attire, and warmer weather. If I'm going to be wearing a jacket, or vest, and I KNOW it, I will almost always carry the 1911 in a paddle holster. Regardless, I like this holster, the weapon draws smoothly, and due to the saddle leather band at the opening returns smoothly. What I don't like is the fact that on the 1911 model the J-clip adustment is secured with only one screw, not the two you see in their photo description. Although I prefer the two screws, as opposed to one, I have to say that the one screw has secured the adjustment for the cant I want, wearing strong side, behind my left hip. Durabilty with the one stud adjustment remains to be seen, so the jury is out on durability. However being a casual kind of jeans and tee shirt guy, I bought this holster for a need I seldom have, but wanted an option for, and it meets all my expectations. I could have bought something better, more expensive, that I will seldom wear, but why? So I chose to spend a little less on something I will probably never wear out, because it's unlikely I will take a federal government job, where the skies the limit. Because, although born, and raised in Chicago and knowing a great many things, I don't know nobody, I'd have to get dirty to know. You can't beat the quality dollar for dollar. It's a great product, De Santis has been doing this a long time.

I bought this holster for my M&P Shield 9mm. Although I had to do a lot of research to make sure which model was best suited for my gun, I love it. It fits great. I am a big guy so it has been a challenge to find something comfortable and concealable. The one is both. To save those of you who own Sheilds all the research time, the model I bought was listed for the Glock 26 and 27.

Exactly What I Needed
Very nice value. I've been very pleased. I purchased the LC9 holster for my Keltec PF-9. Fits Great. Very tight at first, but loosens up. After a few days of carry it will be perfect. I do wish that it had two screws to hold the cant, however it has stayed in position just fine thus far (1 month of carry). The thick leather band around the top allows for careful reholstering. I carry just behind the hip (roughly 4 o'clock), I do not tuck in my shirt, and have it adjusted to about a 30degree One more thing is that I wish that the leather on the inside against the skin went a little higher. Sometimes it can be cold putting the slide against skin. Overall, I do not regret this purchase one bit!

Great for the money!
I bought this holster for concealed carry of my LC9. I was a little weary of purchasing this holster due to not knowing a lot about the manufacturer but I took a chance. I really like the adjustability of the cant and the full slide protection as so you do not have the slide against your skin like other holsters. I do with that you could adjust ride height and that there was more then one adjustment screw just for security. I would recommend this holster to someone that has a small frame weapon that would like to be able to tuck in a shirt and still carry in the waistband.
