Bravo concealment

Bravo Concealment appears to be spending a ton of money on online advertising and i bit, ordering an OWB kydex for a G33 to be used under a sweater or jacket for concealed carry.
It arrived with a 1” molded extension for a threaded barrel which lengthens or deepens the holster by an inch. No mention on the site i could see, or on amazon. Seems i wouldn’t want the extra length for this purpose and bravo should mention it. Have been trying to clarrify with their service people, but no real answer yet. I can return it to amazon. Fit and finish is nice. Tried it fri/ sat. Not a bad holster, just deeper than need be for a smallish pistol.

I've got several Bravo holsters; OWB, IWB, and appendix; used for CC and ran and bunch of classes with them. Always worked great, fits close to my body, good retention. I've always ordered directly from the website and the holsters have been 'made to order'.

I didnt know BC did Amazon. Nice holsters, but expensive. I've bought only one, a LH IWB P938 for my brother. He's always praised it. Call BC, they will resist.

“ resist” or assist? I did get an email response to my question from bravo on friday and a second email and it was a bit uncerain in that i think she was telling me they do not do custom anymore and that the owb holsters come cut out for red dot and are made to accomodate threaded barrels. And yes, amazon is now selling these and passing on any sale discounts that bravo offers, as i bought last week and got the veterans day discount.
Other than the extra inch its pretty decent. Draws okay, retains ok, rides close to body and is relatively comfortable. It was $45. Not a bad price. Just finished a 1 hr walk and pretty much didnt notice it.

I have a Bravo Concealment and a Black Rhino...no difference that I can tell. BC stopped offering left handed options and narrowed their offering a bit so I went with Black Rhino. Carried just about everyday for a year with it and no issues.

Their regular, non light bearing holster looks to be what you're looking for, perhaps you can get them to do a swap.

On a similar note, I just ordered a Vedder Light Draw for a G33. (The "Light" in the name has nothing to do with having a weapon light)

No kydex holster is any better than others. One might offer an adjustable clip but that's about it.
There is one company I saw before that had a thin kydex. I've long forgotten who it was. But interesting having a flexible kydex for iwb.

I don't have a ton of holsters but have DEFINITELY seen a difference between some makers in fit and finish.

I used to use a hot glue gun to attach pieces of gun shaped neoprene to a neoprene band around my waist for deep concealment. Who needs"fit and finish" when it comes to self preservation?
Pull a fcking gun and take care of business.
