Great new holster everyone should look into!

So just last week I invested into a new holster from a guy who makes them locally. I typically carry a kahr P9 for my daily carry and found it hard to carry concealed in the summer time with my different Galco leather holsters which were more suited for carrying concealed during winter. This new holster is an SHTF gear ace-1. It's kydex molded and combination riveted and stitched with kevlar thread onto a leather backing. I've had a crossbreed holster for 2years that i've used to carry a walther p99 when I can comfortable carry a larger gun. Although this has been comfortable and a nice way to carry concealed it was never wild about it. Over time the Kydex on the crossbreed actually cracked. So I was just never a big believer in the 50/50 design. But I took a risk with trying to find a better holster for my kahr and I found the perfect holster for me! The kydex on the SHTF gear holster is actually slightly more robust and molded better. Some major differences are the kevlar thread used in combination with rivets to attach the pieces of the holster together as well as how the leather backing is cut to allow for a much better grip for drawing the gun without sacrificing any comfort. I've provided some pictures below to show these differences. I'm a very huge fan of these holsters and would highly reccomend them to anyone looking for a better carry solution.
