I use the Smart Carry holster and it's concealed pretty well. First time I tried it on, my wife couldn't tell I was carrying. I carry a Springfield 5" GI 1911A1 in their Security V with no problems. Just takes a few hours to a couple of days to get used to. Gotta practice drawing too. Go to Youtube and search for some videos. Plenty on there.I have no problem concealing a 1911 with a Comp-Tac Minotaur. Extremely comfortable. Also check out Smart Carry for even deeper concealment.
Only kydex encloses the weapon. The kydex is attached to the leather backing and so are the clips. Retention can be zero to it will not come out. It all depends on how much you adjust the retiention screw.Wow, that is quite bizarre looking. How is retention? Is it leather lined or just Kydex?
