I've been wearing my new Mika IWB with my J Frame, and I got to say that Bob Mika makes one comfortable holster. In South Carolina it does get hot AND humid. We have affectionately called Columbia, SC the "Grate over Hell" due to its alarming humidity. But I digress. In SC, we need holsters that will not rot when the sweat hits. This one will not
Bob Mika's holsters are very functional. When you get one, you look at it and go, "Now there is a good holster."
It just strikes you as such. Why? For one, it's simple. No bells, no whistles, it just does what it's suppose to do...ie: hold the gun! Secondly, it needs no breaking in. Thirdly, it stays where you put it. The belt clip he uses is one of the strongest I have seen (and I've been carrying for over 25 years now). Fourthly, it's comfortable. The leather and backing he uses in and of itself adds a slight measure of "cushion" to the holster. Lastly, it does not cost an arm and a leg. My IWB was $35.95 plus shipping and it's custom made for my specific gun. Now that's a deal!
Bob Mika is one of the good guys. He's so easy to get along with that after you talk to him on the phone for a few minutes, you think you're at the table drinking a cup of coffee with a long time friend.
What do I get for all this? Nada, nothing. It's just nice to see a product that works and a man who stands behind it.
Keep up the great work Bob!
