    I've been running the Raven Concealment Phantom rig for my Glock 21SF and 20SF for a bit, and overall, I'm very, very impressed! Very comfortable, secure, and fast.

    Also, paired up with the Ares Ranger belt, it is a winning combo!

    Nice. I'm on the list for a Raven Concealment holster and looking forward to it eagerly.

    My main CCW rig is quality horsehide from High Noon. Not cheap. Got to wait a while to get it, but is it ever worth it.

    That looks like a pretty good rig there. It does not, however, look like something that would fit my needs for something that is fast on/off. Since I spend a healthy amount of my work day in and out of the State and Federal courthouses and some of the county's finer correctional facilities, I need to be able to quickly and discreetly disarm at my desk...for this reason I tend to stick with IWB holsters that either clip over the belt or preferably, attach via snap loops.

    The neat option that Raven concealment holsters gives its owner is its modularity. They can be configured to the owners changing preferences.

    I use to use Pro-Line / Kramer rigs and Mitch Rosen rigs. All great stuff, but for my current needs, the Raven rig is my go to rig nowadays.

    Oh noes, I just saw an option for snap fastened IWB use...I may have to take a good look at these...then again it is kydex which for my bony ass begs the question of how comfortable is it for day in and day out wear? I find that despite being an outstanding holster, I rarely carry my USP Compact in the Blade-Tech Pro Series Kydex IWB holster.

    You can glue some type of soft covering on the holster.

    Okay, back to my Galco Stow N' Go, I carried my EMP in it all last week since the gun has eaten 550 rounds with no issue (500 rounds of Federal American Eagle, 20 rounds of Sper Gold Dot and 30 rounds of Federal HST). Due to the (for me anyway) proven reliability of the gun, the EMP has been my gun of choice for the past week and I have rather enjoyed its ease of concealment and nice light weight as compared to my typical Springfield TRP. And now on to the holster.

    The holster is, as described previously, a straight drop, reinforced top soft suede holster with a polymer reverse J-clip attachment system. As a reference, the Galco Stow N' Go is comparable feature and designe wise to a High Noon Mr. Softy.

    Retention of the holster is fine when worn between the three and five o'clock positions. The holster stays put nicely thanks to the suede holster body and it is not bulky like some IWB holsters can be, and thus the holster is comfortable to wear. For ideal stability with this holster, I've found that a proper gun belt is needed, preferably something in the 1.5" width category, however, if you're clever about it, a 1.25" belt can be made to work as well.

    I like the holster for the most part, but I don't think that this one's going to pass muster as being my 'it' carry holster for my EMP since the body of the holster collapses when the gun is drawn making it slightly difficult to re-holster. It works for the time being, however, while I look for something that's a little more to my liking.

    Well, I just added another DeSantis Speed Scabbard for my Springfield EMP. I've been pretty happy with the results I get with that holster using my bigger 1911s, particularly my TRP, so I'm interested to see how it fares with a significantly smaller (at least in dimensions) and lighter weight pistol.

    As an update, I had been carrying my EMP in the above-referenced DeSantis Speed Scabbard with great results. The gun just disappears under light clothing...it's going right back into carry rotation as soon as the gun is back from Springfield.
