    Very well done, Ping. It is an interesting holster.

    Well done Ping . Do they make a leather lined version? Do they make one for a rail? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I am not sure about a rail but the link below shows the leather lined Kydex.

    Geepers Creepers! A guy sleeps late on a Sunday and suddenly there is a scad of responses to his meanderings.

    Thank you all so far, for your kind words. This was a fairly daunting task, given the utter new-ness of the gear, the innovations, which occured during testing and the sheer number of accessories and options.

    Patrick,
    Yes they make leather lined versions of all the models. They care called the "Silent Thunder," and I have already submitted a piece to John, which you should be seeing soon. I have included a couple more of the options in this review, since the time line for the Easy Reach was ended and the stuff kept coming.

    As far as a rail, I am really not sure. I know that Tucker is adding forms all the time and has a pretty good sized pile of them already. Best thing to do would be to call Rob Longenecker, at Tucker and ask him.

    Nice job Ping. I believe you covered the holsters well and the pictures told the rest of the story.

    Nice review, and I was unaware of the leather lined Kydex. Always been leery of carrying in Kydex due to what I figured would be excessive finish wear (as opposed to leather). This should cure that!

    Question for you Ping Ping, on their site, it looks like the OWB model wouldn't conceal that well, as the upper portion rides away from the body. In your review, this appears to be just the opposite, looks to hug the body quite well. Do you think it's due to adjustment of the rig, body type, or? How well do you feel it'd conceal under a cover garment?

    A very good read BTW, well done.

    The one shown in the photo, indeed conceals very well under a vest, or jacket. I have another, Silent Thunder Champion, which does sit out from the body a bit, but since I only use it for IDPA, I rather prefer it that way.

    Tucker has just released what they call, the "Butt Tucker," belt attachment. It's appropriately named, since it helps push the butt of the gun closer into the body. They also offer it in two different ride heights. This may meet your needs better than the standard attachment. You can see it on the website.

    I thank you, TBone.
