I just bought a Fobus paddle holster for my 1911 and was wondering how they held up over the long-term. I've only used it once and the body has a deep scratch on it near the muzzle. This would indicate weakness in the material.

Also a concern are the rivets. Plastic isn't inherently strong and the rivets don't impress me overly. Any problems with them popping under pressure?

Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated. Until then, happy shooting.

I've had one for about a year and it has held up nicely. It is good for throwing on around the house or into the woods. It isn't much for concealed carry. My only complaint is that the draw is sticky. I have to jerk really hard to free my pistol. The rivets may scratch your gun up. I carry a Glock so the only thing I have to worry about is the gun scratching the rivets.
