If there is one thing this item lacks it's only a small comfort issue. Typical of IWB holsters (Inside Waist Band) this holster has a clip that is slightly low and causes a small amount of discomfort or giving up luxury's like sitting down without your gun jabbing you while it's concealed. If you're planning on packing at your cousin Vinny's wedding plan on doing a bit of comfort adjusting or standing in the back. The holster can be used for OWB carry (Outside Wait Band) and is pretty comfortable like that also. It is truly Left or Right handed and it's pretty easy to change configurations by simply moving the clip to the opposite side. If you're into open carry and concealed carry this holster is good and universal. There is no designated are or room for an additional magazine which could be a problem if you ever need to mow down 17 people one by one with your Makarov unless you can find room for additional magazines elsewhere which I seem to have no problem with. I say 17 because you can carry a round in the chamber and 8 in the mag. and with 1 additional mag that would sum it up. The standard Russian Military issue holster is large and an obvious burgundy color and this holster makes for a much nicer and more sleek option for my trusty peacemaker. The gun fits nicely into the holster and stays put even without the removable strap (which I removed and placed aside as I don't typically run/jump/swim while carrying). If you're into running jumping and swimming while carrying your sidearm this would be a fine option as it keeps everything fit, snug and securely in place at all times. And, finally with a great price like this one it's really custom built and I feel like it's a great value.
