    AIWB M&P 40c/TLR 7a

    Fits like a glove. The curved clip and claw both make it harder to put on and remove the holster, I 'm not sure I'll stick with either. I'll give it a few months though. The only negatives I have are: 1. I wish the option for extra retention hardware was better explained. I ordered it but now I'm not sure why 2. A short blurb on adjusting the retention on the new holster would've been helpful. The retention screws must have had thread locker on them. They didn't seem movable, so I believed for a while that I needed to install the extra retention hardware. I hadn't gotten around to it yet, but had an idea tonight and now feel stupid. I just needed to loosen the retention screws first rather than trying to tighten them. This made the thread lock break free with less effort, then it adjusted as tight as I could ask for. So it all worked out and I'm grateful for a well made holster and for the stellar transaction. Easily 5* even with my little complaints. Honestly I was being a little dense, as is my tendency.

    Bought holster for my son and he's been bragging about it since he received it. Thank you.

    Overall great holster

    Love the holster. Fits perfect, looks great, and feels sturdy. Only negative is that there’s extra kydex to the side where the light is that I plan to cut off and smooth over. It digs into my right leg as it is.

    Glock 40 light bearing holster

    Fitment and retention are great on this holster for such a big pistol. Drawing and re holstering are clean and smooth.

    Can CC a Glock 40 with X300U without printing

    I bought this holster because almost no one makes any holsters for a Glock 40 (6" barrel 10mm long slide). It's my nightstand gun, and I wanted some kind of holster for it. To my surprise, I can CC this pistol with a light attached (x300U) at the 3 o-clock position (with this AIWB holster) and it doesn't print any more than my Glock 19 in a crossbreed supertuck. It is comfortable getting in and out of my truck, the same or better than my 19/crossbreed combo. The key is that arm that pushes the gun's grip into your side. This works extremely well and is very effective at keeping the largest pistol that Glock makes from printing. I would not go out all day with this rig, (because I have other options, but I suppose I could) but it's perfectly fine and comfortable if you're going out shopping or running errands for a few hours. I never expected to be able to CC a Glock 40 (with a light!) But I can now, and I will thanks to Dara. Absolutely awesome holster. I'm thinking of replacing my Glock 19 holster with a Dara AIWB. For sure I will be coming to Dara for my light bearing holsters from now on.

    Great Holster

    I have gotten multiple holsters from Dara and they have always been great, perfect fit for every one and they have been durable plus the hardware they use is better quality than a lot of other manufacturers I’ve used. I wish the sweat guard was slightly narrower and slightly shorter on the holster for my PDP but overall very satisfied with the holster especially for the price.

    Best holster I've owned

    Just got the holster Monday, and already love it! Construction seem's to be second to none and the belt clip is a force to be reckoned with. Usually my experience with attaching The holster to my belt has been less than ideal and most release at the worst possible time, but not this one and I love it! As of now would definitely buy again also the gun belt I purchased seems to be working great alongside the holster. ?

    Getting one for my other pistols

    What can I said that is not said already, but I bought a different holster for P365X and I din’t like the fell of it, I got this one and fit perfect and with a light, doesn’t matter what position i have it, it doesnt bother or poke me or anything like that. I truly recommend the holster, I will buying one for my Glock 21, and FN FNX-45. I hope you make one for the new FN 545.
