Does anyone have an experience with the Hogue Power Speed? Looks like it could be a good all-around holster. I will eventually want a fast draw holster for USPSA. Right now I am spending my money on ammo.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought one and it was a total waste of money. I can draw faster out of my GWH. I have a safariland 010 tactical option that I use instead of the Powerspeed and it has done me well, hope this helps.

Bad holster. Very bad. Buy a Ghost, Limcat or Safariland.

don't even think about buying one, a friend of mine bought one when they first came out. the magnets do not hold strongly enough in race mode to retain the gun. he used to draw from the semi lock mode and the first time he drew from the surrender postion,as he gripped the gun, he knock the safety off,and pushed down on the lock bar, and the gun FIRED in the holster.luckly his holster positioned his muzzle away from his body, and the round inpacted about 3 inches from his right foot. He near as he can figure, when he came down on the gun from the surrender position, as he gripped the gun, he pushed down on the lock bar,which also knocked the safety off at the same time. he also pushed the gun down into the hoster, which forced his trigger to touch locking stud in the trigger guard, which fired the gun. He contacted hogue, and they blamed him, saying that he didnot adjust the holster properly. DON'T BUY THIS POS, get a ghost, cr speed, safariland, limcat, anything but a powerspeed.
btw, I never got the guts to ask him how it felt to have a muzzle blast sooo close to his nuts.(-:

I got my hands on a Power Speed that someone had given up on.

It works just fine. I have used it with my Glocks. I can jump up and down in race mode with no problems. I have been getting draws in the .92 second range. I couldn't get faster than 1.20 before...usually 1.35.

The guy who had it before me did have it set up wrong. The locking bar (thumb release)has an attachable extension. The extension was on front side (closer to the slide), instead of on the back side (which would put it well below the mag release). If a person set it up wrong then I could see where they might knock their saftey off drawing from a locked position.

As for the holster causing the gun to go off. It seems impossible to me if the hoster is setup correctly. I just tried it every which way I could think of.

I don't want to sound too harsh, but...people need to read the directions. These are guns we are dealing with.

I agree with Kyle. I have used mine with a Beretta 92, Glock 17, and Para 14-45. No problems. No I don't think its as good as some of the others like limcat but for the money(i paid 75/00) I have been very happy. I just shoot local matches and the versatility is good for my wallet. I agree with Hogue, once the holster is properly adjusted the gun can not move down into the holster and could not touch the trigger. That is the reason the guy sold the one I have he did not take time to adjust it properly and gave up on it.
