    Default Opinion on simple holster

    Hello,

    I was at a gun show and a well known leather belt and holster maker (man looks older and experienced) was sitting there. While getting a belt, I noticed he was holding a OWB holster at 3 o’clock. However, it was simply a piece of leather with a slit on each end so the belt can go through it. Then, he just slips the gun into it.
    After pointing it out, he mentioned he was a officer for decades and that his mentor handed him this piece of leather and he has always has been using it since with no problems.

    My concern is that, while the outside of the trigger is protected by leather, the inside would be touching the belt and I am not sure if this is safe or not. Anybody heard of this type of holster?

    Sounds interesting. I'm a huge fan of simplicity. Any photos?

    Yes, but it is only one piece of leather, meaning there is not another one on the other side of the gun. I.e. it is between the belt and other leather piece.

    I have one also has spot for clip on back of holster I got it 15-17 years ago I used it twice. MMMMMMM It really does not protect the trigger as well as I like or have any retention gun falls out easily yes it was light easily concealable, the cons out weighed the pros for me. For the use Gun Show not a lot of Movement or jostling would be practical if your moving about a lot of up/down sit/stand guns have the tendency of falling out of the style of holster

    DISCLAIMER: ( read real fast in a deep voice) Thispostmaycauseheartburnhighbloodpressureangerand hurtfeelingstakewithasmanygrainsofsaltasneeded.
    Again not trying to be offensive. Here we go, unless your part of security,admin., safety committee for the gun show, it's none of your business. As Hank Sr said " if you mind your own business you'll be to busy to be minding mine." People seem to be all hot and bothered about safety. Must have a trigger guard, holster that covers trigger, no pocket carry without a holster, we wont even talk about Mexican carry. The reality is that 99.44/100% guns are safe WHEN USE AS DESIGNED AND NOT MUCKED WITH. Quit tinkering with it, cut this, tighten that, new springs, polish something else, if you must then, pay someone that knows what they are doing. Put it in a holster/pocket and quit fondling it like it was your first girl friend. As for the holster, it is a type of Yaqui holster. When made properly from quality material they work just fine. Though maybe not so much if your a drunken FBI agent doing back flips a a wedding reception. Before all the safety gurus, and Yaqui haters start in with its a bad design and the people that came up with it didn't know anything.................... I would just like to point out that Eduardo Chahin, Col. Jeff Cooper, and Milt Sparks are the men most responsible of the design. On the other hand I'm an old baby boomer so what do I know.
