Appendix Carry Inside the Waist Band (IWB) kydex holster

It seems that lots of people are making “kydex” holsters these days. Late 2012 I was given one to review from a training academy I attend. Here is my take on this particular holster.

This is an IWB Appendix carry holster. The holster fits “across” the belt loops to assist in holding it in place, or you could just place it between loops, however that dramatically effects the draw and I do not recommend it.

Fobus ankle holster review

As I have expressed in other computer and firearms related reviews, it bugs the heck out of me when the reviewers don’t tell you how long they have tried a product, or worse, they have had it a week or in many cases one or two days and then they tell you to “buy it”, “it is great”.

With technology, of course, the change is so quick that you cannot use a product for 3 or 4 months, truly wring it out and report back because it has been replaced, at least most of the time. See my review of the Viewsonic tablet for an example.

Today I want to report on an ankle holster that I have used off and on for 4 years. More off than on for the last 2 years. The Fobus KTP-32, an ankle holster that holds the Keltec 32, my BUG (Back Up Gun). Continue reading Fobus ankle holster review
