Jeff686 Posted February 4, 2008 Share Posted February 4, 2008 I was out at the range yesterday trying out my new CR Speed WSM II and my Tanfoglio Gold Team. I had some problems and am looking for advice. My setup: Safariland 028/029 belts CR Speed WSM II Velcro INSIDE the holster loop, where it grabs the outer belt. Mounted just forward of my hip bone, over the little 'change pocket' in my levi jeans. (same spot as my Safariland 007 for limted) CR Speed Adjustments: I feel very good about the gun's position in the holster and the adjustment of the trigger/swtich/lock. It goes in and out easily, but is secure and has very little play when holstered. I don't think my problem is with the retention system. Problem: During casual draws, the pistol comes out easily. However, during my normal draw (under the buzzer), the holster lifts/rotates to the side (muzzle of gun away from leg, grip into gut), and the gun does not come out. Obviously, my draw is applying a force vector with more of a propensity to rotate the holster than to overcome the latch. I am 100% sure the 'lock' is disengauged, so don't blame that. If I take the time to pull 'straight' everything works fine. I don't feel my draw is excessivly crooked. I've successfully used my Safariland 007 for years. Possible solutions: 1. Hi-Torque belt. Is a hi-torque belt designed to prevent this from happening? It seems like fixing the symptom, not the root problem. I have a Safariland 4350 on oder (for my limited setup). Might it be any better than the 028? Should I just get a CR belt? 2. Move the holster. I did not play around with changing the holster position. I guess I have 3 adjustments (cant, twist, and belt position). I see a lot of open shooters with the holster on the front of the hip, closer the crotch, with a good bit of cant. Is this the preffered position? Could moving the holster position improve the straightness of my natural draw? 3. Change my draw. I can certainly practice a more 'straight' draw, with the holster in the current position. It feels a little unnatural. I can probably reprogram myself. What other options are there? Which of these is most likely the best solution? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
