Fierce Defender IWB Sidecar Holster

Anyone here using the Fierce Defender IWB Sidecar Holster? I found it on Amazon and was curious if it is worth the $60 price point as an alternative to the $100 T-Rex or if I should just save the extra money and buy a T-Rex.

Here's the link to the one I am curious about:

It's hard to say with the pre-curved/pre-angled combo holsters. For really about the same $, you could get the RCS Morrigan and a Phlster mag pouch.

OTOH, if you have a heat gun, you can make adjustments to the Sidecar, to a slight degree, if you needed to. Or, it may fit you like a glove... :tiphat:

I have no info on the Defender holster, but I'm not a fan of having my extra mag(s) in the same location as my gun. Unless you can access the mag, with your off hand, you will have to switch your gun there to reload. Is it real time consuming? Maybe not, but it will take a lot of practice to master. For about the same money, you can get a crossbreed, and a mag holder that can go on the opposite side. This is just my opinion, and worth every penny you paid for it. YMMV.

:iagree:

This. I carry my S&W M&P M2.0 9mm 5inch in a Safariland 7TS ALS openly. Even when I was carrying my Tanfoglio BTA90 IWB, concealed prior to 1/1/16, I have always carried my spare magazines openly, on my support side, in a nylon pouch with flaps. Looks like a multi-tool pouch. I train all my family members to carry their spare magazines the same way; OWB on the support side.

I carry the spare magazines in the same position for training and competition as I do for EDC. The only difference is I us open-top pouches in training and competion. I have used the flap covered pouchesin training and competiton to valid my techniques. Works well for me. I strive to train and practice using the same gear and techniques I use in EDC. At the range, for an all day class with additional spare magazines, I may add suspenders. Otherwise, I wear clothes I would wear in the office.

If you are planning to carry in the appendix position, a combination holster and mag pouch seems to me to be a good idea.

As with most things in life, it comes down to the risks we are willing to manage and which benefits matter most to us.

I appreciate the responses! Was really just looking at this holster since its not super expensive and I've never carried appendix and just wanted to see if I liked it. If not, it's Amazon and I can send it back pretty easy.

In terms of how I currently carry my spare mag, I just toss it in my opposite pocket for the time being, planning to pick up a NeoMag to carry it in my pocket a little easier.
