Hey, Dan, . . . instead of belt loops for your belt to thread through, . . . they have a plastic "hand" that slips up over the top of your britches and down inside.
Doggone thing needs warmed up, too, . . . if you don it on one of them cold winter mornings, . . . :biglaugh:
It is a very practical holster setup, . . . easy on, . . . easy off, . . . can go from strong side to cross draw in about 5 seconds, . . . if you frequent a lot of non carry places, etc. . . . makes life a lot easier.
Mine is a Galco for my Springer full size 1911 and it is one of my more favorite carry holsters. The only thing I don't like about paddles, . . . they do not pull in real tight, . . . and can leave a bulge if your clothes are susceptible to them.
Check the pic, . . . it is not the best, . . . but you can see the paddle behind the holster.
