Yesterday I went to Reiters to do some Quad riding. I always carry my Glock 20 with me when I'm riding, ne matter where I go. I have one of those Uncle Mike's Kydex holsters for my Glock. After several hours of Quading I came back to the parking lot and loaded my Quad into the back of my truck. As I was packing up my gear I removed my holster from my belt and the damn thing spun around on one screw. That was all that was holding it together. I came very close to losing me beloved Glock 20 due to the threaded inserts coming loose on my holster. I'll go to Lowes or home Depot and get some replacement screws and loctite the damn things in place with the super strong red shit. Bottom Line: If you have a kydex holster and you want to keep your gun, check the screws every once in a while to make sure they're tight.

Personally, I'd be looking for a new holster...

Knowing that I know now, even if I got a new holster I would take it apart and put loctite in the screw threads.

I just zip-tie my pistol to my belt... I never lose it.

A plastic gun is on the very edge of acceptable, but a plastic, adustable, paddle holster is just waiting for a chance to fail.


But come on, a plastic gun just feels at home in a plastic holster.

I took it to SAM'S and they got some new screws and threaded inserts for me. I took it home and Loctited the SOB and I'm sure it won't come loose now. I've also ordered a chest holster which will become my primary carry rig when I'm Quad riding and camping. That will solve the problem.
