When a handgun (such as the G19) is already as thick as a cold war era bomb-shelter brick, the leather artisan's challenge is to NOT design a holster that makes the pistol even more unwieldy. Done properly, an IWB holster should have an almost magical slimming effect on a big fat ugly geometrically offensive handgun. The Alessi PCH is very light and thin while maintaining surprising rigidity; no reinforing leather or metal is used to hold the mouth of the holster open to aid in reholstering. Will this holster maintain the ability to stay open after some seriously sweaty summertime IWB use? Well folks, I'm going to do my best to live long enough to find out first-hand; stay tuned for updates.

Well, that's it for now. If anything of note, positive or negative, develops regarding this holster I'll append it to this blog entry.
