Has anyone found a decent leg drop holster for the .40 JCP?

Lets face it, the Hi-point is not known for it's concealabilty so I would think this would be a popular request for holster companies, but I can't find anything. Well nothing the really seems worth taking a risk on anyway.

I'm half tempted to try rigging up something with the fobus paddle but would much rather have it all one piece and a recommendation from the Hi-point family.

I know there has to be someone out there that been down this same road so all recommendations are welcomed.

This is why I joined this forum.

That looks good to me wolf. I think I'm going to order right now.

Any idea whether thats a thumb release on the other side? From the reviews they make it sound like it's a draw you jerk through.

Either way, I'm gonna try it.

Thanks,

not to offend you but what would you need a drop leg holster for your pistol unless your trying to be tatcicool why not get a good IWB or hip holster for your weapon

It nice for an open carry when sitting, riding or driving.

Abdominal girth is not something I necessarily like to add to - especially with a brick like the 40.

I just got mine (the one above) in the mail a couple of days ago and I'm really not that crazy about it. It sticks out to the side allot due to the HP's bottem heavy long magizine butt. It kind of hangs off of you like a cocky cowboy from the movies but it seems fine when sitting and that mostly reason I wanted it.

Plus, you really can't beat the price. I was able to find it for 15.00 and will use it so its gonna work for me but I would not recommend it a practical long term carry, where you're doing allot of walking or standing.

The one nice thing about this model is that it can also be attached to hip.

Yes, I agree not the best for a quick draw. I think it could be easily modified by a upholstery specialist to put a thumb release button on the inside.

As it stands now it's good for the quad ride and sitting in the huntin blind. It makes me feel better that it has a secure hold. And its not too bad if you release the bottom button if you wanted a faster draw.

But one thing I really didn't factor in is that it is kind of irratating walking around with it. Maybe it's just me but it feels like I've been shot with a spear in the leg, the way it sticks out and hangs up on stuff.

Like I said before I wouldn't recommend it for a comfortable carry holster.

The front pocket on my cargo pants seems to be best holster for me. I always thought it would be cool to put a button there but I usually don't CCW my hi-point anyway.

No, but I'd be open to $ or stuff from them... :)

I have a vertical shoulder holster from http://www.concealmentconceptsholsters.com/ for my .45. It gets a little heavy - not a lot of padding - if you wear it for a couple hours. I have one I made myself that I haven't had a chance to wear, yet.
