Total waist of money....they are cheap and that's what makes them attractive....I put my 27 in it one time and was in a dog fight trying to get the gun out of it...if trying to use this holster in a defensive situation will get you killed

They are not all like this. You must have got a bad one like my son in law did. You need to test fit. My Fobus works great and fits my 27,22,19,35. I can release my gun just fine. Not too tight but just right.
With my holster off I can release any one of my guns with a push down on my thumb while holding the gun.

My G26 is in a Fobus Evolution GL-2 ND on the nightstand in our hotel room at the moment. It holds the gun close for concealment under a cover shirt. It took quite a few draws to get retention to ease up. Now it's perfect. If it breaks, I'll buy another. Once I retire, I'll have one for the G30.

Fobus holsters are great for what they are. I have several and they all work as they should. They are a quick draw holster. Trying to slowly remove the pistol is not how they are designed.
I have one for each my pistols and they all work great.

Some folks think you should be able to draw from a Fobus holster like it was a Blackhawk holster without the release button. Quick snap draw and it's out. Once read a post on another forum where someone said, "If I had a dollar for every time I've seen a Fobus paddle holster come off a belt and go flying downrange on a draw..." Pure horse puckey. If it stuck to the gun on the draw, why would it release from the gun to fly downrange? Of course the same person claimed you should wear the paddle between your belt and your pants. Idiot or holster snob? I generally use IWB holsters but do throw on a Fobus for quick errands.

I've used fobus holsters since they were introduced in the US. As a matter of fact since I'm a lefty the police supply I've used for 25 odd years had to order mine straight from Israel. It arrived about a month later mailed from the factory with cool Israeli stamps. Still have it and numerous others. They work great and it's cheap enough that if you tear it up you just buy another. Best holster for the money.

For 25 bucks, you can afford to see for yourself

It definitely helps to find the sweet spot location on your hip to go with the cant angle of the holster. If you don't draw straight out, she's probably not coming out of the holster - which helps prevent gun grabs. The roto versions give you more options but are too bulky, IMO.

The standard Fobus holster leaves a bit to be desired. However like most companies, Fobus makes a variety of holsters. I have found their Evolution series to be good holsters and quite efficient and reliable. Sadly, I don't see where they make one for the 30S.

Here's one that fits your 30S and is not that expensive;

You might also try Comp-Tac. They are pricey but very good.

I also have a Forbus for all of my guns. There are several things to do if the holster is to tight, one is to wrap the EMPTY gun in a plastic bag and heat with a hair dryer and allow to cool for a day. Another is to "twist" the gun a little east/west while removing from holster. It takes very little twist and that can be controlled by where you wear it on your hip. Think of it as a snap rather then a draw. JMO

Ordered mine awhile ago for my 23. Have to say they are pretty good. Like it just as much as my Serpa. No complaints.

my first glock holster was a fobus. i had to yank the living crap out of the gun to get it out of the holster. not the safest action. guess i could have drilled out the rivets and put some washers in as spacers, but was recommended to get a blade-tech and that is what i mostly use now for competition, carry and range.

btw their double mag pouches with paddles are great.

i do really like the blackhawk serpa. it ain't coming out of the holster accidentally, and with just the slight push of a button, there is zero drag on the draw.

I'd spend a couple extra dollars and get this Safariland if you want something like th Fobus but much better quality.

The Fobus GL2 for my G22 is as near perfect as I have found. It is easy to heat with a torch and adjust the retention if necessary. Also most comfortable for me worn at 3 to 4:00 depending if walking or driving. Highly recommend them.

The first holster I bought for my Glock was an OWB Fobus adjustable-cant model. I like the way the pistol clicks securely into place and so far it has performed in line for what it's designed for, although I rarely use it.

They're bottom of the barrel holsters. But they're better than no holster, and may be the only holster available for some models. Surely one of their existing models fits a 30S.

My goodness, ask a simple question.....ANSWER: any of the Fobus G-2 series will work just fine, I use the GL-26 slant draw with my G-23/26/27 and now 30S, easy in, easy out, fine holster(s). Nice mag pouches too, but the wider one fits the bigger mag, no one size fits all there.

Actually, there are very good cheap holsters, and very bad cheap holsters. This one would be in the latter group.

definite a quick snap draw holster because if you don't draw with a quick snap you'll play hell getting out,at least with the standard Fobus holster.I've watched videos of how easy it is to be broken off,with a quick yank it can be broken off of your person.If they would improve on the strength of the paddle it wouldn't be a bad option as far as inexpensive holsters go.The said videos are one of the reasons I switched away from the Fobus platforms,of course if no one knows you are carrying it's a non issue but it made me uneasy.
