Received My Slide Guard This Week
« on: January 16, 2014, 11:42:25 AM »
This is a lined Slide Guard in black cowhide for my P-01, and it has already exceeded my expectations. I started wearing it around the house with my P-01 holstered for general break-in, and as mkd has mentioned in another post, it needs a good break-in period. I want it to start forming to my body with the gun holstered so it will break-in with the correct shape. I'll then start to loosen it up by hand for some drawing and re-holstering exercises to get it completely broken in before I start carrying with it.

My initial impression, as this is my first HN product, is that it keeps my P-01 extremely well concealed at the 3:00 position. Because it's a high rider, I can easily conceal this pistol with nothing more than a T-shirt, since a good belt and this holster hug so close to my body. It's basically undetectable, very comfortable (even thought it hasn't fully broken in yet), and easily clears my rear and front pockets, so I have zero interference. I know now you can't go wrong with a High Noon product, and this is likely just the first of a few.

I'm ready to pull the trigger on the slide guard. Did you go with the button or the metal 'J' clip version??   ? curious on why you chose what your did?

The Slide Guard is an Outside the Waistband carry, and as such, has belt loops. The Down Under is an IWB, and has the option of straps or C hook. I've used both, and prefer straps. :)



Darn thing just works solid - BTW, get the Rock Steady gun belt, too, if you can - makes everything work perfect.

That's a nice rig.  Pretty awesome to see someone carrying a Phantom also.  See everybody, you can carry a full-size comfortably!

Birds away, did you have to increase the pants waist size. I am a 34 but would probably need a 36?
