Hey all,

I just got my new IDPA Belt Holster from Blade Tech about a week ago. Really nice work, however I have one gripe. I ordered it with their new Tek Lok attachment, which in and of itself is pretty damned nifty. Certainly makes it easy to take the holster on and off.

My gripe is this thou, it really makes the holster stick out from the waist. What I was wondering is, if you one of you kind folks with a digital cam and a BT holster with the standard belt loops could take me a profile snapshot of your rig. That way I could compare the two, and decide if I wanna send this back to BT to have the regular belt loops installed. I'm assuming with the standard belt loops, the holster fits closer to the hip, but I'd like to be sure before I go ahead and do anything. Even wearing a heavy coat or sweater, you can still see the gun poking out with the Tek Lok installed.

Oh, one other thing: how well does the the 'shim system' work? What keeps them in place? Seems to me like they would just fall out of there

Justin, the Tek-Lok option is not listed as an approved holster at the IDPA.com web site. I have several Blade-Tech holsters and they look like this http://www.blade-tech.com/belt_holster.html
The shims work by inserting the narrow tapered end first into the holster belt loops. To remove the shims, simply push up on the tab, and it will slip out.

The shims won't fall out, sorry I don't have a pic. Is your holster a straight drop or FBI cant? Maybe you need the FBI cant.

The one on the left is a Blade-tec holster that I sold some months ago.

Hope this helps.
