OP, after going and looking at the FIST K7 on their website, for one dollar more I'd get a Sidearmor modular IWB before I'd get the FIST. I've carried in the same Sidearmor holster for probably 6-7 years now and it's still in excellent condition. In my opinion the Sidearmor is better made and has a much cleaner look.

I fail to see the difference here for one handed holstering. Not an option for me as the ability to go hands on fast is a necessity and with the holster there it removes the ability to waistband it in the front. How many times your gun gone off holstering blind at 3:00? Probably never right? No reason it shouldnt be the same for aiwb. It's about finger discipline not muzzle.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edR56wVnPvA
Note the one handed reholstering...he is using the Mr Softy. It is reinforced a little. Also be aware that the kydex FIST do collapse. With appendix, you want to use two hands to holster safely anyways, no big deal to keep the shirt out of the way and have hand on holster for support at the same time. I do it all the time this way...no way would I do a blind holstering pointing the barrel of a gun at my important parts. When wearing at 3:00 and back a supported holster becomes more critical than forward of the 3:00 position in front of the hip for ease of holstering.
sight line and ease of opening the holster in front of the hip. One does not need to be fast at reholstering. He needs to be fast at drawing. With a closed front shirt you will use two hands anyways so it is zero extra steps to lift your shirt and guide the pistol into the holster with off hand. I have both supported and unsupported holsters and they make zero difference in front of the hip. If your carrying behind the hip, it is much harder to holster a pistol into an unsupported holster because it is harder to see what you are doing and get both hands around behind your hip while holding cover garment out of the way. watch the video I posted above, he shows just how simple it is to holster a Mr. Softy carried appendix.I fail to see the difference here for one handed holstering.

Yeah, sorry I missed you were carrying for professional reasons. Go with one of the other holsters mentioned on your other thread...the archangel, alabama holster ...etc... maybe try the fist Kydex in thin vs ultra thin. Choosing a holster can be a tough decision. Hope the one you pick turns out to be 'the one'.Yeah if you're just a concealed carrier I agree but it's my profession so I don't have that option unfortunately. Sure would be cheaper though
