A “New” Holster………

A short time ago, I purchased a second holster, this one from “We The People Holsters”.  They are advertisers on the Dan Bongino show and I thought I would give them a try.

I have had my “Alien Gear” holster for about three years and it is mostly good.

“Alien Gear” of the left, “We The People” on the right

Both of these holsters are inside the waistband and right-handed, but worn on my left. It’s on my left mostly because on my right side, it hits the seatbelt buckle in my car when I drive.

I have liked the Alien Gear but there is a problem when I kneel down (I kneel because I can’t bend !!), sometimes the back unhooks from my belt and rides up and is loose !!!  Now, It may just be because I wear a crappy walmartium belt.  Yes, as Phil suggests, we should pay the money and get a great belt that last a long time instead of replacing them with cheap crap every few years.

The WTP holster clips on very well.  A bad thing is that I was not able to get a holster for my S&W 380 EZ, so I got the S&W Compact 9mm which is very, very close to size/shape etc of the 380. BUT !!!!!!!!!!!!  There is a tendency for the holster to hit the mag release button and the mag pops out.  Some people look at you funny in the grocery store when that happens !!  This holster is very good on the shorts I usually wear when I do my yard work and I wear it at my 6 o’clock.

This holster is all hard plastic and the top of it really digs into my side.

The Alien Gear Holster has two clips.  You can see in the photo that the clips pivot and move and don’t always clip on very tight.

The best part is the Kydex that is much softer than the hard plastic and really does not bother my side like the hard plastic holster.

I think my best bet is to get a much better belt.

I would also like to be able to have the gun be lower so the grip is just about belt level.

    They both look like they ride high but the new one looks to be about 1/3 smaller overall.
