Finding that "perfect" concealed carry holster is almost a never ending quest for individuals who carry concealed. Most people go through a series of holsters in a trial and error process trying to find the perfect combination of comfort and concealment.

In most cases, handgun owners end up with the proverbial "box of holsters" that end up sitting around without being used.

Finally Tried a Fobus Holster

After years of resisting, I finally broke down and tried my brother's Fobus holster. He has ranted and raved about about how great that holster was for months. It turned out to be exactly as bad as I had imagined.

The built-in active retention system forces you to draw the weapon in an exact manner that I found very uncomfortable. I wasn't a big fan of the paddle either as it simply didn't keep the holster stable on my waist. No matter how tight I pulled my gun belt, the holster consistently shifted during the draw. Obviously the price point is very low, which is waht seems to draw people to this brand.

If you were on a strict budget or only carried a handgun once a year, the Fobus might be an option for you. Other than that, I personally don't see much value in it.

For those of you who are absolutely sold on the Fobus, this place has them cheap: Fobus Holsters.
