I'm the same way! I put a screw through the belt loop on the holster to size it tight on my belt. I switched to a pistol belt as soon as I was sure back then what I would carry, I still wear it. It's way more convenient than having it on my pants belt, I got the UTG 'elite'() belt with the mag holders for $12. Those mag holders are just silly... It is a well made belt though.

I use a heavy duty hole punch made for leather and put chicago screws through the belt and anything that I want to stay put.



Bulletproof, even if the velcro opens on the backstrap of the holster, it'll stay on my belt.

It's alot nicer to be able to casually take a belt off without having everything slide to the center, much easier to put it back on as well.
The UTG belt I use has soft side velcro on it's inner face, I could stick hook side velcro to the straps of pouches and holster and anchor them that way, but I prefer my old way.

EDIT: I just looked at that Whiskey two four universal holster, hey that's sweet too, with a 45 degree molle adaptor you could put it anywhere.

That is an awesome idea! Thanks so much for sharing, I'd never have thought of that myself :P

I'm really leaning towards doing the hole punch thing, as it seems like the easiest way to get everything to work together and stay together haha

Smith is right about Chicago screws. They work well for securing your tack, though I use a soldering iron for making holes in nylon web gear.

It's a sure thing and I love a sure thing. Good idea Nightstar, I do flame the edges to melt things together, but that would do a bangup job!

It does ride low in the tornado, my leather holsters ride higher but I've angled them to match. By angling the holsters you avoid any jab in the side from the long back end of the TPX. I'm able to keep them alot higher by angling them.:





It's a little tough to see the left pistol. I wear it crossdraw and it's angled so the grip runs right down the belt. This tilts the barrel in the back to keep it out of the dirt when I sit or roll over at prone.

The Tornado is high enough to work well on the ground though and it protects the muzzle better than my leather ones, which expose the muzzles on purpose, so I can load 12s in the holster.

This is the one that I am talking about. Per my experience, this seems like a good price.

It looks like a good choice. One of the other colors shows the construction better:



It could easily switch to hip or mount on any molle patch. Nice holster!

I use this UTG holster, has worked for my tpx as well as my delta 86. You can get it dirt cheap since it's a closeout model now

I'm a big fan of the Full Clip TiPX/T8 holsters, I mount mine to a BULLE UK drop leg panel:

Not the greatest pic in the world, but the holster is incredibly stable, nice quickdraw too!

I picked up a blackhawk thigh rig with my kydex holster. It worked well, especially with the top clips on a belt or on my vest. Works well and doesn't move, but makes it a little harder to squat like I often do. Besides, the only purpose would be to hold it there when walking to/from the field. It is also a bit bulky, even if it is pretty solid.

Look here at post #302. It's the second from the top. What I like about this setup is that there is a lot of flexibility with adjusting. Also, to remove, just push the two top buttons, and no more holster (once you remove it from the leg).
