AIWB for Roland Special on a short guy?

#22
This is a new release, they finally have a holster for a full size duty light. Not sure about training with a hot comp without the comp being covered in this holster though: https://tenicor.com/products/malus-sol-aiwb-holster-for-glock
Well, I bought two holsters from Tenicor. I purchased a Malus Sol which holds a Surefire X300U light appendix and I also hedged my bets just in case that didn't actually work for me and I also bought a Tenicor Sagax Lux holster which holds a compact light Appendix.

I also ordered a new X300U-B 1000 lumen light for the Malus Sol. I haven't actually carried in the holsters yet on the street. The X300U is a Christmas present so it will be after that.

Still shopping for a compact WML for the Sagax Lux.

Recommendations for a compact light? TR-7 or Nightstick 550 XL or something different? The TLR-7 with the new switching is interesting but it isn't release yet and the Maybe to be release Surefire XR1 is also interesting.

If I wanted something for a compact light before Christmas, what would be your choice? Wanted the XR1, but since it was released last Feb and hasn't seen the street yet, not sure how long I will have to wait for that one. If you bought something that was available TODAY, what would it be for a compact light?

While the new X300U is a Christmas present and hasn't been opened yet, I'm running the Malus Sol with the older X300U and I am surprised that a short, slightly overweight fella can pull off that big light AIWB. I was out today and sitting in the car, felt a little pressure, but life was better than anything else that I have tried.

While the Streamlight TLR 7A high switch is also a Christmas gift, I opened it up and put it on the second G19.5 with the Sagax Lux and it is just damn sweet. For everyday carry the TLR-7A and Sagax Lux is a combo that I can live with for a long time. I still have to get this gun milled for the second RM06 and once vetted this will be my EDC.

Shopping at night right now the Malus Sol is the go to combo.

Another quick follow up to this thread: After carrying the compensated 19.5 with the older X300U AIWB for a couple of weeks, I'm surprised that I can pull it off. It's still not easy to tie my shoes with this thing on but still feel the squeeze is worth the juice.

The second comment on the Mal Sol specifically is about running drills and reholstering. Since the holster has an open bottom for the comp to protrude, I wasn't sure if I could run the gun and reholster it after running drills. I shot about 150 rounds yesterday and even ran a couple of full mag dumps with the comped gun. Reholstering it was a non issue as far as the comp being too hot to reholster. Note: I didn't do a 500 round training day. Bottom line: I didn't burnt anything while training and reholstering with this holster.

Just posted this in the Roland thread... I really like the Phlster Floodlight. I plan to play around with the clips instead of loops. I may try the Discreet Carry clips.
