    Question Not hi dollar, but looks like it will work.

    Hello.
    Been carrying my Taurus pt145 for a while now in my pants due to hating my lst holster. Found this on ebay and although inexpensive, it looks like what Im wanting. Has the safety snap for secureness and rides a little hi so my shirts will cover more.
    Anyone try these or similar? Tnx, HG

    The drwback to nylon "thumbreak" style holsters, is that the nylon is not a stiff as leather (more comfortable), so the thumbreak release it not as sure. And snaps are a more "positive" release than velcro.

    For $16, it's not a painful mistake, but many end up in "that drawer" of unused holsters.

    If you buy it, give us a report. First impression, range use, and with a one month follow-up.

    I carry IWB with a Clipdraw now... almost exclusively. Now that it's cooling off (55 this morning in Orlando), I'll go back to OWB in my Don Hume with a light jacket.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I'm a big fan of the "You get what you pay for" mentality. A $16 holster is going to be, well, a $16 holster. There's always a reason why something is incredibly cheap, and here I bet it's construction quality. It looks like it's made of neoprene (?). You might get a few months out of it, but it's probably not going to last. But, like Jeff said, at $16, it won't be a painful mistake.

    For what you will have in that one you can have a Fobus holster that would probably last a lot longer. I'm not a huge fan of them personally but they seem to last.

    check out http://www.midwayusa.com/ for holsters. you can search for holsters just for your gun. They will have a sale on at times and there are some good deals to be had.

    That holster shows up around 4 inches more than if you used an IWB.

    You will have a hard time covering it with your shirt tail. IMHO

    Fewer purchases to get what you need can equal economy.

    Good luck

    Getting the right holster can be a pain. Especially if you only want to carry occationally or don't want to spend a lot of money on something you're not sure you'd like. I understand that feeling.

    If that holster doesn't work you can always same up a bit here and there and get a holster from Raven Concealment, Comp-Tac, Crossbreed, Galco, or another manufacturer. You'll probably find what you want, and something that will keep you comfortable so you can carry often (daily?). Most of us have gone through at least a couple holsters before settling on what we really want and like.

    I agree that a IWB will be easier to conceal if you are simply using shirt tails as your cover garment.
