    How good? High end, cheapo, or mid-grade?

    I like my Mernickle. It may be an "upper" mid-grade price wise but it's still looks like new and I've had it at least 10 years. Oh, no drag pulling the gun out or replacing it.
    And if there is something about it you think is not quite right, call Mernickle and he'll probably tell you to send it right back to him for adjustment or repair.

    I went back and looked at something I posted previously...
    ...and, sure enough, the Hip Grip is no more, with that link being dead. That's too bad since it was available for K frames.

    The Collins web site is also gone.

    I guess that just leaves the DeSantis version.

    Yep! Barami Hip Grip guy retired and closed his business (damnit!). Wonder if he sold his patent?

    Lip Grip link doesn't work for me, (other two do work).

    Nice setup. I just traded mine last weekend for a P365. Those eBay holsters are basically the same as customs ones, just made by someone in bulk for ebay. They work great. f1bd8e5033ea5f2a5b2ee4f9ab706619.jpg

    what holster do you use for your defender? I've had one for awhile but haven't carried it (yet).

    I love this holster from El Paso Saddlery, I think I bought it from Midway for around $60. The magazine holder is from DeSantis. 0602181507.jpg
