I recently just picked one of these up last week and I really like it. Legal, sharp, light to carry and draws super fast for weapon retention. Just about the perfect match for carrying a handgun. I rather like the sheath it came with. The retention was good on my model at least (there is also no wiggle or rattle either,) and I like the clip as it is easy on/off the belt. That being said you are 100% correct about not getting the full grip, and so I ordered a custom sheath from Matthews Fabrication. I did not receive it yet, but when I do I will update how well it works. Sorry for the rant, back to your regularly scheduled program.
