never can have too many G19 holster threads - i myself am shopping for one and like learning about all the different options - N82 Pro on top of my list currently.. id be interested in your opinions of the original version
I have an N82 original for my G19. Very comfortable and well made. I'm new at this, but the retention seems good and the elastic takes the shape of the weapon after some time. No sure how it compares with other holsters since my experience is limited. The only drawback I see is trying to reholster. It's better than you might think but you have to look and use your other hand to get it back in. N82 pro would probably solve this.
Retention is great, I wore it over an hour outside playing with my kids and the gun never moved. Returning to holster is not possible one handed right now b/c the elastic folds under the trigger guard. Once the holster molds to the gun, maybe that'll change. Guess everything's a trade off. The holster is extremely comfortable. And a great value.
