You could heat it up with a hair dryer and mold it tighter to your gun. I believe you want the dryer on low and a damp wash cloth nearby. Also give Tommy a call he will walk you through it. Great service and holsters.

How much retention do you need when you are wearing it?

i dont like retention holsters for civilian carry. we civvies arent in the habit of wrasslin goblins to put handcuffs on them.

my preference is quicker access to my firearm.

if your using it as a duty holster contact the manufacturer. oft times they will help a police officer with a problem piece of gear
