For those who feel the need for some sort of retention other than molding and fit, this design provides the wearer with that peace of mind. The Thumb Break is the oldest retention device in leather holster making. This holster comes with a sturdy steel "stiffener" that allows the wearer to disengage the snap with thumb pressure. Aside from the thumb strap, the wearer enjoys the same classic fit and finnish as all holsters made by Prince. The wearer can draw and present with the same speed of an open top.
