The Blackhawk! 3 Slot Leather Pancake Holster features not 2, or 4, but 3 belt slots. Tricky huh?
It’s for good reason. The placement of the belt slots allow for side, behind-the-hip, appendix or cross draw positioning.
The holster backing is large and does a great job of distributing the weight of even large and heavy pistols. We’ve been using one with a full sized Springfield Armory TRP 1911 for quite some time and it makes a perfectly comfortable all day carry option.
The holster, especially the trigger guard area, is nicely molded to the specific gun model so we found fit to be excellent. There is a thumb-break snap at the top to aid gun retention. We found releasing the snap to be, well, a snap, with a natural draw motion.
It’s a nice holster — especially for larger guns.
