    Wow! What a great holster for my GLOCK 42 – you all nailed it !!! The trigger guard is REALLY protected – a rare thing in most holsters. Kevlar and color could not be better – one classy job.

Glad I stumbled upon your website.”

    “Just thought I would drop you a note on how impressed I am with the holster for my G42. I carry my iPhone in a clip on the same side and it sticks out way more than the holster or butt of my weapon does. Without my cell phone on you can’t tell that I am carrying at all which I like, sometimes I even forget that it is there. I foresee a couple more orders in the not too distant future for other sidearms.

    Sorry I can’t offer any pictures as they would not be appreciated by my employer, and could prove to interfere with my duties.

    Thanks again.”

I am extremely happy I found your website. Thanks again!”

  33. adminpaul

    “…..such personal feedback! Thank you greatly! I will order again in the future!”

  34. adminpaul

    “I received the 8 mile holster several weeks ago and I have to apologize for the delayed response, it’s been a crazy busy summer.

    Thank you so much for the exchange and it was very kind of you to add the upgrades! I am not a fancy guy, these are tools for me and I go for function and reliability not looks… I don’t buy Glocks because they are pretty, I buy them because they work! Same with holsters but I have to say, this is a damn nice looking rig even if nobody is supposed to see it! What I really care about though is the quality and this is the finest kydex rig I have ever owned. Very nice work, a truly deserving home for a Glock pistol.

    I bought one of your mag holders for the 42 and took the clip off for pocket carry, it works really well that way and I will probably get one for my 23 as well. It keeps the mag upright and pointing the right direction, blends the shape even in jeans and keeps debris out of the feed lips and first round hollowpoint. Another really nice product!

    You have earned a customer for life. Thank you again.”

    “I have ur 8 mile for my glock 30 and love it it’s even been ran over by a jeep without the gun in it and didn’t break…. we were shooting out on the farm and I set the holster on the ground and my buddy pulled up and parked right on top of it and it still works as good as when u sent it.”

    “Just wanted you to know that the holster you made for my Glock 42 with Crimson Trace, well is perfect…. Truly enjoy it.”

  37. Robert Docter

    Received my 8mile for glock 42 today and absolutly love it! It seems to just “fit”. Looks great and has a even better feel. I can barely notice it on. Although I am new to concealed carry, I must say that I am extremely happy with choosing detroit holster as my first “real” holster. Will definitely pass on to my friends. Also, great service and it took no time ship! Thanks.

    “Hey guys –

    The Glock 42 is my summertime, shorts & t-shirt carry. I usually carry my Glock 27 in a Galco IWB kydex holster. I decided to give you guys a whirl for this holster.

    The bottom like is this: you guys absolutely nailed it.
    The fit, quality and design are top notch. It’s $hit hot to say the least, and you’ll be my next go-to for my next holster.

    Well done. You guys rock.”

    “Could not be happier with my purchase! I bought a 8 mile IWB holster for Glock 42 with viridian laser with ECR. Fit and finish are perfect, I forget I am even wearing it! Also the colors…simply AWESOME! I will be getting others for my other handguns and would not be surprised if my buddies get some too, been showing it off all week. Thanks again Chris.”

    Very good product! P320 fits great. The customer service is just as great. Had issue with address I sent it too. They fixed with with no issues and VERY quick email responses.. Even responded on Christmas Day! 100% happy will buy from again!

  43. adminpaul

    “I’m very happy with my 8 Mile holster for the Glock G42 with Crimson Trace’s Laser Guard and I’m hoping you’re going to offer a similar 8 Mile for the Ruger LC9s with Crimson Trace Laser Guard ((LG-412H). I’d appreciate an email notification when you have one available. Keep up the good work and thank you for a great product.”

    “Hi Detroit Holster Team, I just received my 8 Mile holster for my Glock 19. It is my second one. The first one I bought was for my Glock 42. These holsters are, by far, the best concealment holsters I have ever used, and I have tried dozens. My quest for the perfect holster has come to an end after finding your 8 Mile holster. These holsters fit the guns perfectly, there is no unnecessary bulk, and with the adjustable tension, I can think of nothing that would improve your product.”

  45. adminpaul

    “… Fit & finish are superb, attention to detail is evident. And the materials are top notch. I love the black carbon fiber look. Thanks again for the extra mile…Awesome products,, look for more orders from me in the future.”

  46. adminpaul

    “Received the holster today and I have to say you all have earned a loyal holster. Top notch quality and didn’t even have to adjust the retention. Will definitely order from you again.”
