Title: Holster
Post by: Laserbeam on October 09, 2018, 04:16:41 PM
Hello, All - Any suggestions for a good OWB holster with a thumb break?  I've got a couple of Makarov holsters which fit great BUT the thumb break strap goes over the grip safety.  When snapped the strap doesn't depress the grip safety but the thought of going over the grip safety gives me the heebie-jeebies.  I'd like to find one where the strap goes over the back of the slide.  Thanks in advance.

I bought this Talon holster on the Remington website:

It was initially pretty tight but after following normal final fitment/stretching procedures it's a pretty decent holster. The thumb break as you mentioned fits over the end of the slide and not over the grip safety.

I use a DeSantis 033/75 (see below) - the strap does go over the grip safety, but does not depress it.
