I have a couple of holsters that I notice when I bend down the gun has a tendancy to slip out. Now I know that I am not a skinny guy so that has to contribute, but I do worry that if I bend over to pick up my keys or something else that I drop that the gun could pop out of the holster.

Do you prefer a holster with a snap retention strap on one of the button click devices??

Your opinion?

I got my primary holster years ago.

I cannot recall the maker.

The whole rig comes off with the gun still in the holster, locks onto a belt bracket.

The gun requires that you push a release right where your thumb naturally falls when gripping it. Can't fall out, can't be taken out unless you know exactly where to push.

Last year I bought a holster made by Bianchi that is for my Sig 245 and it has a snap and release lever down where your thumb hits the holster. Nice rig at a good price.

Speaking of retention holsters.....Ya'll remember the airline pilot that discharge his firearm in the cockpit a couple weeks ago?

I did read a similar article soon after the event and I agree -- leave it to the FAA to screw up a two-car funeral!

Regarding retention/holsters, I test the hell out of mine, having seen more than one red-faced off-duty cop or plainclothes officer. Most of mine have thumb break safeties, but not all. The little cordura holster I recently got for my Kel Tec works perfectly with that 11.6 oz. pistol.
