Mildly curious about this feature

Is there something about the operation of a Turkish holster that I don't understand?
This is a RH paddle holster that came with the Canik, without the paddle.
How is one expected to access the "finger release" back behind the paddle like that?
I don't use it, as I found a great company with superior quality for the whole TP9 line, just that the factory one just seems like it has a California self defense feature on it, designed to disallow access.
I damn near put this pic in the gun humor thread.
Bottom pic is the CNC stamped kydex model that I highly recommend, so I may have to put that in the reviews.

Show us a picture of the other side of the Turkish holster. Is it an ambidextrous release button? Or reversible, and somebody forgot to reverse it?

Davidsons Rep told me that it was a mistake made by the factory. Withdrawaling can be done without pushing the button. When supplies run out, corrections will be made.

Not like I even use the dam thing, but mine will not withdraw. Release button is holding it good.
The excuse of mistake by the factory sounds quite weak. The mold/machine that forms the holster would've had to have been engineered totally backwards....on purpose.
But I guess stranger things have happened.
I'm willing to bet canik would replace it for free though :handgestures-fingerscrossed:
