    theis holster question?

    I am interested in the theiss holster. My question is can you flip the clips around and usse it for open carry? Has anyone else tried this? And how does it carry in the open? I understand they are the best for IWB. Just curious
    Thanks for the Info in advance.

    I haven't heard of this and not sure why you would want to. IMHO they'd be awfully bulky to carry OWB.

    I've tried several IWB holsters and could never get comfortable with any of them to wear daily until I got my Theiss holsters. Now they are my primary carry rig.

    Do you have to wear one waist size larger pants to utilize the Theis IWB holster?

    I emailes theis holster last night. You cant flip the clips around but you can add belt slots to the holster. Theis holster returned my email in under 20 minutes. I cant even get an answer from my better half in that time. Thanks to theis holster. Excellent cutomer service.

    Not really, but I don't wear very tight pants anyway. With the Kidex it pushes out enough and holds its shape to where you can easily draw and reholster the gun. The leather is thick enough that the gun doesn't dig into the spare tire. Only change I might make for the 1911 holster would be to add some leather to the side where the grip sticks out.

    I don't have a Theis but I do have similar holsters by other companies. I think that it is easy enough to wear outside your trousers but have the belt go over the Kydex and through the clips.

    I guess that would be OWB , ITB. Outside Waist Band, Inside The Belt.

    See my thread on ordering an OWB from Theis for my new 24/7 G2. He let me know he could still add the IWB clips so I could use it for CC, but I didn't want them. I think it will make the holster a bit wider than normal, but the leather wraps so I think it would work fine. Tommy Theis makes a great product and his customer service is first rate. He also guarantees you'll love the holster or he'll take it back.
