I work in the armored car business as a driver and as a courier. The area I work in is North East Wisconsin, with side trips from time to time in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Several of us here use this holster, but have not had to use them in a "fire fight" or life threatening situation. But I can say this. We put them through HELL, getting in and out of these trucks 50, or more times a day, catching on door latch pins and door frames, as well as the weather ( Rain, sun, wind chills in the winter to 40 below!!! ).
Each one of us knows this holster will keep us safe, and if the time should ever come, it will work for us.
Now if I could just find pouches that would hold up as well. S. B.
