View Full Version : FOBUS Retention

May 23, 2009, 12:43 PM
I was looking at a Fobus paddle holster for my Taurus 851.
The holster was very beautifull, the fit was perfect, retention was too good, so good I had a hardtime pulling out the revo from the holster, it has no adjustable screws, so does it loosenup with time or is there a tecnique to pull it out??:confused:

I had the same problem. They told my that a sturdy belt and making sure that you pulled out straight would help.

You can always adjust it by applying heat in the right places. I have a heat gun, but a strong hairdryer works too.

I know this is going to sound silly, but I'm not sure how else to explain it. - If you try to draw the gun slowly, you will most certainly pull the entire holster out of your belt, If you draw the gun fast, It should pop right out of there with no problem. There's a trick to it, that " technique " seems to always work. You may have to push your hip out a little when you draw, that helps too. And yeah it should loosen up over time. I have a fobus holster that I bought about ten years ago for a 1911, I still have and use it. I like them a lot.
