I never noticed this holster as being any louder then any of my other shoulder holsters. However, it is not the holster for everyone. It took me a while to work my first one in rotation, getting comfortable with it's operation.I got one of those a couple years ago. I like that they are small and simple and dont have alot of bulky,thick,wide straps and buckles all over the place. I got one because I didnt like how bulky most of the others were.
Unfortunately, I dont care for the loud,clanky,ripping open of the plastic holder and the big steel buckle making a loud metallic racket when I pull the gun out. I also dont like the fact that the gun's blued steel cylinder scrapes across the steel snap,on it's way out. I noticed also that I can push on the bottom of the stock/grip and the trigger will push against the big steel buckle and start to cock the gun while in the holster. I never jammed it up far enough to see if i could fully drop the hammer in that manner but I am not too keen on that feature.
On the plus side, the rig is great for concealing the gun.And if you have to pull the gun out really fast, it works well in that regard.I'm still looking for a light, petite,simple, shoulder holster that is quiet,holds then gun securely,and that dosent gouge the finish,and its not all that important on how fast i can jank it out of the holster. Ill probably end up making one myself.
