This is a RIGHT handed belt holster for general use.(hunting, range, competition etc.) It is formed to a real gun for a click fit, which means when you push it into the holster it will slide in easily then snap and lock in at the end. You won't need snaps, buttons or straps to hold it in, but when needed just tug and it will release. Like all of my holsters simplicity is the key, there are no moving parts to come loose or fall off and the whole holster is made from one piece of kydex. It is open bottom but has a protective flap on the bottom inside to protect your clothing and make the gun slide in/out better.
