Well I ordered an OWB holster as I've put on a few lb's and it's harder for me to wear the IWB High Noon Hidden Alley holster for my PT145. I'm wearing it right now, and obviously I can't tell it's on. As far as concelability, well a regular t-shirt doesn't cover it, but I have a pull over wind breaker on, and poof, it disapears! I think I'm going to like the Fobus in the spring/fall or when I can get away with wearing the pullover light weight stuff. I may get a few tips/tricks from a board member on a local CCW forum about how to make it hug the body more, and if I do I'll share 'em with ya'all.

Anyway, thought you'd all be interested.

Okay okay, now my wife thinks I'm REALLY nuts, as I told her there's a forum for EVERYTHING including CC and my hand guns. (I'm on quite a few car and motorcycle forums).

So here we go, a couple with the wind breaker on.




Yup there it is!


I've gained quite a few lbs so this polo doesn't quite conceal by itself at the moment.



And there you have it.

That looks pretty good !! Is the gun snug in the holster, or does it move around a bit? I've never had one of those rigid holsters before......and thanks for the pics !!

Its got a detent almost like a light retention on it. Fits snug where you dont feel it'll fall out but not where its hard to holster.

Well I can tell you all for sure, mine did a little rub mark on the front edge of the slide, and just a bit further back on the loading gate side, but not a mark on the Safety side.
I like it but it does sit a bit far out for CC, unless your using a loose cover garment.

I cut some felt and glued it in the rubbing area and it works just fine. I agree that they are very comfortable but a little harder to conceal. I too suffer from a little to much belly.

cool, looks petty good.. i'm planing on getting a milpro as well, i'd like fobus to put out a evolution series holster for the milpro, but that dont look to bad.. honestly 99% of the people out there wont even notice it.

i carry a pt92 in a fobus evol holster and it rides lower and is larger then the milpro and no one has noticed it that i did'nt end up telling them it was there.

i had some marks on my trigger guard and bottom of the rail on my 92.. i put some clear coat nail strengthener on it and it solved the problem.. it cleans off with some hoppes solvent.

have'nt tried the felt ideal but that sounds like a good solution too.

For reference here's my IWB Hidden Alley tuck-able with a snug shirt and jeans on. It's good, just a little snug for all day carry.
