I have been a proud CCW permit holder for 8 years now. In my career of carry I have been on a quest for the perfect gun and holster option. Over the years I have carried (in order) Glock 30SF, smith and Wesson shield 9mm, Glock 42, Springfield XDS .45, and eventually a Glock 26 when I realized capacity is a major deal. A few years ago I bought a Glock 34 mos with a trijicon RMO 6 for competition and home defense. When the pandemic hit, along with leftist terrorist terrorizing the entire country I decided I would give appendix carry a try and I really wanted the added benefit of a weapons light. After a ton of research Aaron Cowan of sage dynamics made me go for the armadillo concealment extended lux.
I know that gun sales are at an all time high, and governors are turning against the citizens so I had to take that into consideration when it took over a month and a half for my holster to arrive. I tried emailing armadillo concealment two separate times to ask for the ETA on my holster but no such luck for a response. That is my only complaint is that it is impossible to get an answer from them if you have a question. However I am sure they are very busy and up against a lot of BS like all of us are so I harbor no resentments.
Now on to the holster. Holy S#^#*!!!!! This is by far the best holster I have ever used!!! The kydex is seamlessly formed around the gun and light. The channel for the front sight is freaking crazy awesome, I never knew something like that existed. Instead of carving out a chunk of the holster with my extra tall suppressor high night sights, or having the gun occasionally snag which was all too common of an occurrence with every holster and gun I have ever used. The Lux pulls perfectly every time. I am able to get a master shooting grip on the handle due to the way the kydex is formed, which is also something not common with many holsters. The clips are metal and the J hooks ensure the holster is staying on my belt, no matter what! The kydex is slim and is minimal in every area it needs to be. This holster works just as well with my 34 as it does my 19... think about that... this. Holster. Works. Just. As. Well. With. My. 34. As. It. Does. My. 19... That’s insane!!! I never thought it was possible but my 34 is more concealable with an rmr, and a tlr1-HL, and with extra tall night sights, than my Glock 26 with heinei straight 8 ledge sights, no light, and a flush fit magazine in a falcon kingtuck or a we the people AIWB holster. I don’t dress around it either. I am a skinny bitch size 32 waist and I wear shorts and a tshirt for work, where Im not allowed to conceal but do all day. My dad and my girlfriend were both shocked when I showed them what it has been able to do.
Bottomline this is the best holster you will ever use if you plan on carrying a light. Just make sure you are prepared to wait for it to arrive and make sure you dot the T’s and cross the I’s when you order because there is no customer support number and the email didn’t work very well either. You will love this thing and the bad guys won’t know what’s coming. Thank you armadillo concealment.
I love how the Armadillo indexes at the weapon light, for me this allows me to have a place to keep my handguns that don’t yet have a holster that is form fitted to the gun itself. For carry it was a little uncomfortable, due to it’s length, however I understand why that length is there and would even say that is required for a compensated handgun. Another downside for me was that, it was only one belt clip instead of two, the holster wanted to shift on me regardless of how tight my belt was, so I would like to see two clips or straps if I was to carry this holster again. I didn’t personally see the wedge system in my package, that definitely would have solved printing issues I experienced, or maybe even the addition of a L bracket to push against my belt. Finally (and this is just nit picky) I don’t care for circular captors for screws, they tend to spin when being loosened or even tightened. I would make the captors a D shape to prevent that, but I also understand those circular captors are the norm on holsters,
In conclusion: As a EDC holster I would give it a 3.5. But as a “place holder” for my newer handguns, I give it a 5 out of 5.
This is probably one of the most pimp holsters I’ve purchased. Had 3 trex arms side cars, which I proceeded to snap within 8 months of each new holster. This one fits perfect, is “rugged” and 10/10 would recommend.
Probably the cleanest holster I've ever seen. Fit and function are perfect. Using it for a G34 with TLR and RMR and Ameriglo suppressor sights. Muzzle end barely sticks out, definitely not a problem especially considering I'm using a longer 34. Sights are covered and retention is perfect. I love the fact that it has nothing extra on it. Slim profile no unnecessary BS or extra rivets or cosmetic chunks of overhanging plastic. The bump out on the back and the the other one on the front near trigger guard really seat it well in my pants. It's not talked about heavily but the simple design of these features make it extremely comfortable to wear all day. I'm using it everyday. Just can't say enough good about it.
Perfect, buy it, worth the money.
