The appeal of a holster than is quick to put on and quick to take off is great. I've seen and tried examples of same, going back as far as a Buchmeier crossdraw for a 4" K-frame that attached to the belt with the a steel-lined paddle and a couple straps way back in the 1970's. All of the holsters have had serious disadvantages as a cost of convenience.

Lou Alessi changed that with his CQC/S holster. Similar to the late Bruce Nelson's "patriot" design, the CQC/S attaches to the belt with two widely-spaced snap loops. It is stable, conceals well, and is fast. Lou's holsters can be seen at http://www.rfholsters.com

I've just discovered another holster that works well and offers quick on/off capability. Mike Benedict's Talon Tactical PDL is a kydex paddle holster that simple works better than any paddle holster I've tried previously. The design is deceptively simple and subtle. The holster is stable on the belt, holds the butt in tight against one's side, and is quite fast. Have a look at http://www.talontactical.com

I own both - one of Lou's CQC/S and a Mike Benedict paddle. Both perform very well, and for me, hold the weapon snug against me. Would recommend either one.

Lou,
Sure, you can get ribs too, but only if you pick up the holster in person.:smile: Mike and I would be honored to take you to "Two Brothers BBQ".
