MIC Holsters

Wondering if anyone has experience usinh the MIC trigger holsters for their firearms. Are they worth purchasing, or using?

Good for use as a trigger cover or for storage of loaded pistol. For carry, no experience with the one I have but it fits tightly, I just can't "feel" using the MIC, ifyaknowhatImean ....

Here's one use:

i currently use one on my 26 with a clipdraw, used it on a 27 and a 19, both with a clipdraw. i since switched the 19 to a galco iwb or fobus owb. it works well, low bulk :P

edit: as a low bulk holster, its great, I wouldn't use it wouthout something like a clipdraw for carry though. I've used that setup on and off over the last few years.

I ordered one. Figured I would give it a try. The only holster I feel comfortable for concealed carry has been a fobus paddle. I'd like to carry with no printing on my G19 but don't like in the waist band holsters. I think I'm spending more money on holsters than I have on my pistol.

That's a new one! I did that just for the heck of it, sorta as a joke on vehicle carry. But I like yours! And you can see the MIC's retention there. I wouldn't dare drive like that ... first good stop and me and the "Safelight" auto glass guy would be gettin' to be good friends.

A couple of observations:

A chambered pistol, placed anywhere, the safe, the glove box etc.
Is another opportunity to reach and grab for the gun resulting in a AD/ND.

For this reason, I can see the logic in having one for those times.

Research has told me the one weak spot of Kydex plastic is that it can become brittle in very cold temperatures.
I have not tested for this but would imagine if true,
one could see his investment evaporate upon entering a cold vehicle and snapping one of these on his pistol.

I work with kydex so lately have made a couple of these,
one for my night stand gun with a light and one for my carry gun in case I ever have to leave it in the car.
The cold weather here is starting to subside so I don't know if I'll be able to test in sub zero conditions yet this winter. Stay tuned.

I can't believe ~$20 is the asking price for a MIC.

That is a great idea
The scents can be gunpowder or gun oil.

I like the DESANTIS speed scabbard OWB, decent leather and price.

Dunno,
~$1 worth of kydex & 20 minutes with a heat gun,
then belt sander & polish the edge probably 15 minutes.
I guess if you're trying to make a living doing it,
you'd need ~$20/hr I suppose.

I use them for loaded storage like having to leave my gun in the car while I go in the post office, in a pocket in my briefcase or similar situation. I have never been comfortable carrying my 27 or sig p238 with one.

Any specific reasons for that statement?

I use a nemesis pocket holster for the p238 because it will rotate with the only the MIC. I use a safariland OWB or N82 IWB for the 27. I can't pocket carry a 27 effectively and I'm not going to Mexican carry it with a MIC.

My MIC arrived today. I will be Mexican carrying it. I work in some pretty bad areas in Jackson, MS. Hopefully I will never have to use it. I have walked around with my Glock in the waistband and seems comfortable enough for working in. Wish me luck

They can easily be made using a scrap piece of thin Kydex and a hair dryer. I made one for my G42 to use while waiting for a real holster to arrive. They work as advertised and will keep wayward fingers and other objects away from the trigger.

I use my M.I.C. On a daily basis and have for a long time now. I have a drawer full of other good holsters but the M.I.C. Works so very good for me. I love the deep concealment. I usully have my G27 and there is seldom any printing and if there is printing its very little looks like a phone or keys but not a gun. Like i said it works very good for me. In fact i am wearing it now and its comfertable. I am moving today and will keep it on me thanks to the M.I.C.

So I am assuming I have to order kydex online? I haven't researched this yet. Sounds simple to make according to Cruiser 1

They're not a holster. No substitute for a holster. But as some have noted, they're fine for the safe, glovbox in an occupied vehicle, or a drawer. Low functionality, low cost.

I use them daily as a holster. I have several "top of the line holsters that sit in my drawer at home my M.I.C. Holster works better then any of the high dollar holsters that just take up space. You should try one they ROCK
