    Stormchaser,

    As far as I've been able to find, Blackhawk does not make a Serpa holster for that model.

    try a fobus holster I don't know if they even make one for that model ,but they do make a good quality. they are retention holsters. Are you looking for oc or cc holsters? The fobus I have sticks out to far for cc so keep this in mind when looking for a holster. Hope this helps some.

    where on her belt, outside, she said anthing on the inside

    No offense, but if she's gonna carry, why not get her something a little bigger than a 22, i wouldn't want my wife carrying anything smaller than a .380 or a9mm. I know there is the rare occurrence of a 22 actually doing something more than making an attacker really mad, but its a real lucky shot or an undetermined attacker to stop it with a 22.

    While I agree with BigBubba, if you are still looking for a holster find a model that resembles the pistol in question then try the holster for it.
    I found that Cobra .380 & 9mm's will fit in a Serpa 1911 holster. I just needed to heat the slide area on the holster a bit to form it for the Cobra due to it being a bit more square at the front site. 1911 weapons still fit, no issue.
    I know other guys who have done the same thing for CZ's and other weapons.

    no offense taken,i have lost a lot of many the last 3 mo's

    on guns trying to find her one she can handle,she has

    medical problems with both hands and can hardly pull the

    trigger,untill i bought the taurus pt22,it was the only gun

    she had vary little problems with,when we took it to the

    range she hit 19 out of 20 bullseye at 25'with little or no problem

    with her hand,i think we both knew at that time that was her

    gun of choice i know it's not a power weapon,and i prey she

    will never have to use it,but i have to believe at this point

    that a .22 is better then no gun at all.with the 9mm she

    couldn't pull the trigger on the third round,her hand just

    got to weak.

    If you are looking at guns take a look at the Tarus PT111.

    Sorry, Ididnt know there was an issue with anything larger, but if shes good with it, a 22is better than an empty hand.

    Have you thought of a revolver maybe? My Taurus 605 has a fairly stout trigger pull in DA. But if she can cock the hammer back the SA trigger pull is really light, nearly hair trigger, and ur target is gonna know it when a 357Mag hollow point hits them.

    From what I can tell, no company makes a kydex or any other polymer holster for your weapon. If she wants to get away from soft sided holsters, a nice leather holster is probably her only option. I think the problem is that most companies view a pistol like that as a pocket gun, so a belted holster wont sell good. Has she considered a tactical handbag/purse from galco?

    well you was right about the leather holster,my brother-in-law

    who hashad more guns in his life then i could count had

    aleather holster that just fit her gun, when we was out there

    yesterday this subject came up,he said come with me we went

    up to his attic and he had about 12 big box's of holster's

    and belts,rifle,and gun parts that i didn't even know he had

    i knew he was into guns,and hunting and all that ,but i

    didn't know he still had all a lot of what he owned over the

    last 60 years, anyway it was like he knew where every

    thing he he knew what box it was in, he pulled out about

    4 box's and there was a box about the size a 46" t.v.

    would come in full of holsters and belts,to make a long story short

    there was the holster that fit her gun and what she like and could

    live with,the hunt is over...........:celebrate
