    I had one for my little walther p22. the retention on it was great but almost to strong. If you didn't draw precisely upwards your were pulling your pants up to the singing soprano zone. It was comfortable but needed extensive break-in.

    I like the Fobus holsters. I have them for my 1911, Glock, and Sig, and they do take a little getting used to. The retention is sometimes very hard but the ones I have have a screw that can be adjusted for how heavy the retention is.

    I tried one for my Ruger p89 at a local gun show for me the retention was so strong it took me a little while to get it lose. So I didnt get it but thats just for me I know other people that love them for me it was an Uncle Mikes holster it fits great and you can adjust the retention on it which i like.

    I bought one for a Ruger MKIII and sent it right back.
    Love the Uncle Mikes.

    Have been using one for a SIG for years.
    Like it a LOT.

    So I got one for an HK and dislike it, a LOT.
    HK would not fit all the way in, unless you almost stood on it.
    Of course, then you COULD NOT get it out, to save your life.....

    And yes, the tension screw was ALL the way out.
    I filed on it until the HK would fit into the holster without too much effort, then holding it freehand, using your thumb, you could remove the firearm "fairly" easily. But when I put it on my belt, my son could "almost" lift me up trying to draw it.

    So, my opinion on their holsters, is 6 of this, and a half dozen of that.

    I personally wouldn't give 50 bucks for a dumptruck load of any type plastic holster.
