    How big of a deal is this? I have been thinking about it since I read the post. I have argued it several ways in my head.

    I moved on from Crossbreed to Alien gear as latter creates too much noise when bending at the waist.

    ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster | Best IWB Holster | Alien Gear

    Very good clip retention for quick draws. Medium difficulty in taking off from pants with belt if not wanting to unbuckle belt.

    I canít think of a realistic scenario where it matters. If I need the gun out quickly, I donít care how loud the drawstroke is. If I have time to be discrete, Iím confident I can get the gun in my hand fairly quietly even from an all-kydex holster.

    Exactly why I put it out there. The fact of the matter when it comes to personal carry in our vast gun culture one must question/test his/her equipment to the fullest. Many CCW peeps get their ideas from the industry marketing majors or maybe from some sort of shooting sport, when in reality they find the fails with a dropped gun (discovered usually when no one is around) or better yet, be like the dweeb that left his piece in a sofa at IKEA with out knowing it. What ever equipment the shooter commits to, it needs to be just that, a commitment to test for ALL the street possibilities. For me, Kydex is to incohesive, noisy and not to mention breakable for my taste in street carry. Kydex is cheaper to buy though than my quality leather lined holsters built specifically for my gun. But again, to each his/her own.

    Happy New Year to all INGOers.

    Well, back to Coach's crucible comment.... I always FELT that I could shoot the little gun just fine, until I used it in a carry gun match. I wasn't horrible with it, but it DID take a LOT more effort and time to get hits. Why handicap yourself when you might be fighting for your life or the lives of others?
    Heck, I'm even looking at a longer barrels now....

    It is a great point to discuss. I cannot imagine that quiet is much of deal but of course I could be wrong. My carry holsters have both stood the test of time and mileage. I have worked my everyday carry gear in practice session and in matches both Carry Gun matches and USPSA matches. Do not have many doubts about my gear. Folks that want a crucible to test gear should try out a carry gun match. It might bring some enlightenment or some confirmation.

    [QUOTE=Coach;7418227]It is not the odds of needing a gun but the stakes. That is the way Tom Givens describes it. He has the data and the experience. Why are you confident that you can out shoot a perp? Because you are that good or because they are that bad or a combination. Clyde Barrow was pretty good. You cannot count on them sucking. You cannot count on the bad guys not getting lucky. They do have several things in their favor. Plus anyone of us can miss. How much practice do you have in a stress filled environment?

    Matix and Platt in Miami in 86 we pretty good shooters also.
