Thanks for the info...I don't like when the end of the gun extends beyond the holsters coverage area....would rather keep the hot slide areas contained within the leather/kydex. Will have to see how it goes.

It seems well-sized for the compact. If I was cutting it for the full sized, I would maybe make it an 1/8 - 1/4" longer. However, it's unlikely that any part of the slide or barrel would touch you. It pretty much stops at the edge of the leather.

And after two or three boxes of shooting at the range, you're hand isn't as happy either. If guns aren't fun to shoot, they just don't get shot much... which isn't great for a carry gun.
I could not agree more! I tried to like that LCP but it just beat the hell out of my hands and it got sold in a hurry!

Hey guys, I finally got my RAPc 9mm, and an Alien Gear IWB Cloak Tuck 3.0, and I love both the gun and the holster!!

I made a 10 minute review, shooting, and accuracy demo on my home range! Please check it out!!

Forum won't let me post links yet, but if you go to my channel "vepr 12 all day" on youtube, its my latest video.

I just got the American 9mm full size and have only put about 100 rounds through it and love it! Great shooting gun right out of the box and being a lefty is suits me really well.

I think it's a great looking gun also....apparently others disagree

I have both the Crossbreed and AlienGear IWB holsters for the full sized RAP 9mm and both fit my RAP 9mm Compact also. Both are quite well made but I personally find the AlienGear to be more comfortable. The AlienGear kydex shells are also swappable so that you can buy additional ones for different guns. The compact is much easier to conceal than the duty size.
