I had Litepath make me a Pro-S for each of my carry guns. I find that they conceal well, and stay tight to my body. I like the fact that the Pro-S rides a little higher, as it is a little more comfortable for me. I can cover it with a jacket or zip up sweat shirt and no one even gives me a glance.
Its worked well even when I had to throw on armor for call outs.

That makes sense. Thanks.

I was just curious.

X100 on the Liberator. So much so, I had Tom make another for my Olight mini. By far the best OTB holster I've found for CCW.

If I remember correctly, she does shoot it much better than him.

This may or may not be germane, but could be that part of the issue is you've never tried one of my holsters.
They are different.
With the exception of the Pro_S, I sell them all (pancakes) by waist size.
Meaning the are made to fit you. So where once you had a holster simply hanging from your belt, you now have the pistola in holster fitting around you. Makes it a ton easier to conceal OWB if it fits close, high and tight or lower-it if needed; in the case of the Liberator or Pro_S.

Gun size of course matters as does your available real estate. Scrawny guys/gals are tougher to accommodate. I'm talking 30 inch waists. Especially if they've chosen a SIG P226 with a light and etc. Just gets insane. And excessive cant is another issue. Bending a FA around someone small-ish isn't really happening. ala, the Taurus Curve, though that worked only straight-up.

Blabbing on here, but these issues are my daily bread. And often many answers come from the simplest of thoughts, re; not having tried one.

When we get our Glock Gen 5 Glocks(w RMR) our holsters will be some kind of Level 3. For me it will be practice X 4 to even draw it. I’d rather keep my X 19 Glock!

Created a little video that may help explaiin why a holster made for your gun AND light will not work in the same holster without that light attached.

Ha. Yeah, I got admittedly lazy and didn't write a script, so you get the non cussin' version of whatever happened out my mouth.

Hopefully it still flys.

Just ordered one without the light, can't wait to see how it compares to the other quality items I have of Tom's!

I think you’ll like it. Just don’t lie about your waist size.

“Does this make me look fat” isn’t what I need for CCW? 🤔😁

Litepaths holsters hold tight to you waist and are great for CCW.

Received the Liberator in the mail today, as expected the fit and quality is on par with Tom’s other holsters I use and wear, OUTSTANDING!

Glad your diggin the Liberators too. Can't remember how many you've bought, but you're getting into GPC territory.

Let me know when you try that cut down clip. I'm liking mine. I knocked it off the front clip riding shotgun in my wifes car on day-1, but since then no problems & it seems to even be tighter to me somehow. Certainly shortens the whole thing up.
