    Wow. Granted this is my first real holster, but the quality on this is pretty damn obvious.

    FIST #43 IWB/Belt slide, Left Hand, Cordovan, 1.25" loops.

    Should have gone with the 1.5" loops though.. all of my belts are 1.5+

    Nice,

    Are we updating our holster thread with info on what holster manufacturers make A1 holsters? I've heard Comp Tac and Fist now as the place to go for the A1.

    That pictures speaks more than a thousand words about quality I can tell it looks as well put together as my Galco for my M40. Does it seem to retain the weapon well? Would trust that the A1 is going to stay put if your in a fight or on the run?

    Cool,
    There may be a FIST in my future

    Comp-Tac, can not make for the A1 unless things have changed (they made for me using my gun) but they have no other way to do it.

    AFAIK, there's not any MA1 updates to it.. I had to search around.

    I would trust it with the belt loops. I need to move around a bit more and get used to the clip before I trust it fully. It's secure for running.. although the M barrel would be repeatedly ramming the side of my ass.. :lol:

    Definitely retains the weapon well.. trying to draw it leaves my pants up Urkel style, need to work it in.

    I recommend the FIST guys wholeheartedly, just don't be a dumbass like me and not measure your belts. I got 1 1/4" loops and 1 1/2" belts. Doh. Had to go buy a few new belts.

    Call FIST, they are reputed to have excellent customer service. They may be able to open up the slots on the holster for you

    Should do that before I take a dremel to the loops, huh. 8-O

    For my skinny ass, I need a bit more cant.. or an SA1. Eventually, it'll probably be both, though.

    You need a real belt that can support a loaded weapon.

    Try
    the Beltman
    Galco (cop belt)
    Gould and Goodrich
    Aker

    all in the moderate price range.

    Ain't that the truth.. that is a reversible brown/black dress belt.. the only belt out of the 9 I own that is a 1 1/4". I'm gonna email FIST and see what I can do about opening up the holes.

    I went out and bought a 1 1/4" Faded Glory rugged belt for it.. and for 9 bucks, it's holding up surprisingly well. I'll eventually pick up a Galco or similar belt. Mostly though, I'm using the clip. The more I use it, the more I trust it for movement.

    Did FIST ever respond to your e mail about opening the loops up?

    How is the holster holding up?

    Holding up great, and they responded promptly. I'm just not willing to go without a holster for a while, when it's being fixed, so I'm going to buy a kydex IWB from them, then send the other back.

    Excellent.
    Good to know they stand behind the product.
    I am considering ordering a slide with thumb break.
