Was concerned as to the quality and functionality of this holster. But as soon as I slipped the paddle inside my waist band and slid my Glock into the holster it was "Love at first sight". Perfect grip position, secure, tight fit even without locking device or strap. Perfect for personal exposed carry for range or ranch or under light jacket for more conceal carry. The paddle seems to takes the weight off your waistband and can be carried with confort even with dress slacks and light belt. I highly recommend for personal or off duty carry.
