OTHER VERY IMPORTANT WARNINGS
VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT attempt to put on or take off your North-Central Illinois Custom Kydex / NICK Holsters™ Holster with your firearm in the holster. Doing so can result in dropping the firearm or the firearm falling out of the holster. The safest method of putting on and removing your North-Central Illinois Custom Kydex / NICK Holsters™ holster is with out your gun in it.
DO NOT use North-Central Illinois Custom Kydex / NICK Holsters™ holsters with custom or modified guns (unless the holster was made to accomodate those customizations), broken, worn or inferior manufactured guns, including guns that are not of original factory specifications. DO NOT use after-market grips, grip adapters, target hammers, target triggers, or trigger shoes. After market handgun modifications may cause improper holster fit and ACCIDENTAL HANDGUN DISCHARGE. Never attempt to modify North-Central Illinois Custom Kydex / NICK Holsters™ products in any way.
Do not attempt to cock a handgun while holstered as such cocking can cause severe damage to either the handgun or holster, or both, and may cause an ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE.
Some users of certain handgun models insist on carrying the weapon in what is referred to as a cocked and locked condition (i.e., the gun is cocked with the safety engaged). This condition should be reserved only for the most advanced, experienced and skilled shooters under conditions that require the handgun to be drawn and fired under extremely short time constraints. Carrying a handgun in this condition INCREASES THE RISK OF ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE. The cocked and locked condition should only be used by those who have the training and experience to recognize the inherent risks associated with it.
It should be noted that NO HOLSTER IS COMPLETELY SNATCH-PROOF OR TAKEAWAY-PROOF. Therefore, the user must exercise extreme diligence at all times in any situation where another person may attempt to take the user’s handgun. The handgun should be held in place by the user whenever vigorous activity such as running, jumping, falling or tumbling is encountered or attempted. ALWAYS keep safety straps engaged if the holster is so equipped.
Keep thumb on back of hammer or slide when inserting handgun in holster to help assure no movement occurs during insertion. Always keep fingers clear of trigger when drawing or replacing handgun in holster. Place index finger on outside of trigger guard to resist inadvertent strap or foreign object interference when re-holstering.
