* Rarely does a firearm or firearms related product catch my attention. After 25+ years in law enforcement, and 9 years of consulting, I find myself cringing when I hear the words "I want you to test this." Unless something catches my attention, I respectfully decline. This holster from Red Nichols is one of those exceptions. Mr. Nichols is truly a legend when it comes to holster designs (please look him up). To me, the holster and belt are as important as the firearm, and I do not cut corners or compromise in this area. The more I wear this holster, the more I fall in love with it. Thanks again to Jason for pointing me in the right direction and to Red for reintroducing these great designs. ♠️🛠
