    I really like the Kydex-type model for my Glock. Just have to make sure to have the belt on snugly because the paddle design in the Kydex makes it easy for the whole unit to shift forward or rearward under the weight of the gun if the pants fit loosely and there's room to wiggle.

    I've got Galco paddles for Sigs and snubs. I'm very satisfied with them,

    I do not like my Galco leather paddle, or Uncle Mike's. Both sit too high and the butt of the gun tends to rotate away from the body making it print.

    Personally I prefer the Fobus to either of those two.

    The best one I have seen or tried is from Comp-tac.

    They are not expensive, and great customer service, and FAST. Take a look at their site and call them.

    One good thing about Galco paddle holsters is that you can get a good price for them on eBay when you discover Milt Sparks holsters, buy a VMII, and go back to IWB.

    :D

    Jammer,

    I agree with IWB, for most of the time, but sometimes it is not what I want to do! Now I use a OWB slide when that time occurs. I am about to wear my pant loops out from taking it off and puting it back on. Just thought the paddle would give some other options. What do you use "most of the time"?

    A Sparks VMII, exclusively.

    You buy a Sparks, you won't need anything else.

    I kept a Galco Jackass, just in case I take a trip where I'll be driving for more than two hours.

    So far, that hasn't happened.

    I sold everything else. Compared to the Sparks, they're junk.

    eBay, it turns out, is good for something. :D

    I have a paddle Fobus for P95 and a Kydex paddle for Bersa Thunder (or is it Mak!) .... I do like them because they can be placed anywhere - independent of belt loops.

    Some say the draw is too difficult ... well, I'll admit, with Fobus particularly, retention is great - but all it needs is brisk ''intertial'' draw and all is well. Suits me but not all of course. They have their place IMO.
