Re: Holster Review Resource

Glad you enjoy the Holster BigBangSmallBucks.

Time for my review for the Infidel holster I got from a member here. I am using it with my P238. The construction of the holster is very nice. It's super easy to put on and take off which is why I was interested in it. The only negative to it I can see is that sometimes it will pinch my skin, also would be better if you could adjust the ride height/cant. Otherwise it's super quick on the draw and reholstering is easy provided you keep your skin from between the firearm and the holster. I am thinking about trying one for the XDS-9 or the little foxx holster from Foxx Holsters.

Overall I would give the Infidel a thumbs up if your looking for something in all kydex.

Re: Holster Review Resource

They can't all be winners I guess.

With each passing day I have gotten more and more annoyed with the Alien Gear holster. I am almost 100% sure I want to send it back. Maybe they won't take it but I would risk it. Only issue is I don't want to go back to the P238 as my EDC while I wait for a new holster for the XDS.

The holster just doesn't support the gun well. The leather is not cut well. It comes down too low to be comfortable I am sitting on some of it as I type.

Re: Holster Review Resource

Didn't think of that, although it's going to add 17 dollars more to the cost of the holster. Plus whatever shipping they might charge to send them out. I will look around I am sure I can get some like that cheaper somewhere.

Re: Holster Review Resource

Well my Alien Gear holster arrived today. Shipping was super fast. I am impressed with the hardware they use and the items to customize the retension and they even ship it with the allen key to change out the screws.

The kydex material it is made from is very thick. It is also larger than it needs to be which does create some issues when trying to make it actually concealable. The cure I came up with was to warm the kydex up and bend it slightly. Next is the ride height it's strange, you can tell they didn't do much R&D when designing it. There needs to be another set of holes above the highest set to get the height correct. Also the piece of leather while its thick and seems to be of fair quality is cut the same for multiple firearms. I am guessing that really helps keep the cost down.

Overall I was not able to use it straight out of the box as is. However I am very thin and concealing anything on my side is no short order. It looks like this will hold up just as well as any of the more costly brands but some willingness to make permanent adjustments to it may be necessary. My biggest gripe the ride height. Everything else is easily dealt with here are some pics of the holster I do not have any of it straight from the packaging only these after I molded it to fit the curve of my body some.

Re: Holster Review Resource

Thought I would add an update on my Bullard Gun Leather Dual Carry Holster it's been a little more than a year since I started carrying with this holster and it's still great.

I abuse this thing like no other as well. I wear it OWB and I have slid around under cars on the cement with it on and while yeah the leather has some amazingly minor scuffs in it from doing so it has held up awesome. I also have one for a G26 but I haven't ever used it. The only gripe I have is you cannot easily reholster the gun if you are using it in a IWB fashion it does take a little working it around to get it back in place.

With the P238 worn OWB it's fantastic though. No bulging out etc. I have been wearing it under just a plain T-Shirt and aside from being a little careful with bending over it goes unnoticed.


Also had been using a Supertuck with my SA EMP .40, It was a nice rig but starting to show it's age the leather was starting to curl and occasionally the screws for the hooks would work loose. Still did the job and carried a very heavy firearm comfortably all day.

I recommend the Bullard holster for anyone with a smaller firearm like the Sig P238 or smaller it's awesome. The Supertuck is great for the larger guns.

I may order another one in future but now I am going to try a cheaper one similar to the Kholster really they look like twins the Alien Gear Holster for my newest firearm a SA XD-S 9mm. I will ad my thoughts on it when it arrives.
