I got this holster not for concealment purposes, but solely for range use and for wanting to try IDPA and USPSA matches with my Beretta 92FS. Although I haven't tried a match yet, I have used it for range use, and it works well for that purpose. Given the relatively large size of my Beretta and my lanky frame, this holster makes it difficult for me to use it for concealment purposes in the summer time heat of Texas wearing only a t-shirt, but it's possible that it could be used under a large, heavy coat in the winter time. Drawing and re-holstering are easy for a novice like me. However, the retention does not seem as tight as I would like, although I have not tried to run or twist and move my body in different ways and angles to try to see if it would dislodge. All in all, it's serves the purpose for which I got it - mostly range use, and I think it's a good holster for that use. Pros: Fairly easy draw and re-holster. Good for range use Cons: Hard to conceal large pistol, but did not get it for that purpose
