    Baretta Model 96

    Anyone else carry a Beretta model 96? I have one and most of the holsters that I try for it have the retention snap right over top of the safety. When I push the snap closed it flicks the safety lever to the fire position!! Not good. Anyone have a recommendation for a good holster for the model 96? Thanks in advance,

    Serpa.
    I have been wanting one of those for years. I have a 92FS in Inox and want a matching one in 40 cal.

    I use a leather Galco Highrise holster for my 92FS.

    Why not carry the model 96 with hammer down and safety in "fire" position? With that and the retention snap you mention, it would seem to me a very safe arrangement. With no slide-mounted manual safety lever to deal with under stress at high speed.

    This. It is entirely possible that the holster was designed to make sure you were not carrying with the safety/decocker down.

    Cool

    Duty weapon in the military was a 92FS Berretta and I still have the leg holster for the one I carried in Iraq 2005, I bought it before we deployed as I didn't like the issue holster they gave us for our belts.

    I also used the 92FS working at the gate after I retired from the military.

    I was required to keep it locked and loaded and on fire while carrying it. So if I had to remove the weapon for use all I would have to do is pull the trigger. This is the SOP for the 92FS in the military.

    I have a holster but no pistol that fits it.....guess I need to go shopping. Can't have a empty holster laying around....

    That's how I ended up with a S&W 642-2.

    My wife has one rule about me buying guns; if I buy me one I have to buy her one also. She gave me a list of the ones she wants.
