I have a Concealment Express holster for my P365.  Gun is secure, but there is a little bit of wiggle to the gun when it is in the holster and the sweat guard is about a 1/5 of an inch short of covering the whole slide.  Think it helps sweat run into holster onto gun. Not a big deal, and probably a problem specific to the P365 run of holsters.

On that note though, Ryguy, make sure you keep her oiled up.  The mag release and sights like to rust up easy.  Wore the P365 while sweating outside once and didn't wipe it down when I got home, rust on the mag release button and sights when I took the gun out of the safe the next time.  Lots of reports of that being the case on the controls.  Wish they would of used stainless controls or a better finish, but oh well.  Good to practice proper maintenance anyways.  Never did have that issue with my Shield or LCP II and I never oiled them in between range sessions.

Let me know how you like the Vedder.  Never tried them out.

J, maybe look at these for breathability, comfort, retention, etc. I love mine.

Like the looks of that holster. May have to order one.

That is the protocol for a man with a 2 inch unit.  Not that I know Jís true endowment, but that is what I heard from Doug.

Couple photos of the Vedder.  Simple holster, think it works well for the 365.  I have an alien gear also, but not the shell for this gun.

Put another 100 rds through the P365. Ate it all up, including some crappy remanufactured junk and some aluminum case ammo. Not bad for letting them rip at 10 yards.

Fun day. Ran 100 rds through the Ruger PC9 carbine too, had it jam once on the first mag, but ran good after that.
