    They appear well-made; however, my criticism of this style of holster is based on how they carry the handgun rather high on the belt.

    This is particularly disadvantageous for shorter-barreled, high-capacity models that tend to place the widest, heaviest part of this type of firearm at the higher elevation vice that of the remainder of the gun. This makes for a top-heavy carry that tends to wobble.

    I discovered this with my Para-Ord P10, the precursor to the Hawg-Series, when I used the leather Galco version of this holster. For concealment with a non-suitcoat, waist-length jacket, I temporarily replaced my full-sized 5-inch Government model with the P10. After just 30 minutes of wear, I found the P10 flopping around.

    It works better for single-stack, longer-barreled models. It seems to work equally as well for single-stack polymer models with light-weight frames that make for a less-rotund profile.
