I vote not a good idea.
Thread: Open Carry holsters
Do you believe it is a good choose to have a non retention holster open carrying, meaning anything less than a level 2 or at least a thumb snap
same here. i wouldnt either. i be worried of it falling out if i bend over to pick something up and that is something. i dont want to happen in a public place. with my luck a cop be right in front of me when it happened.
I prefer to use serpa's because they have active retention, but sometimes you just can't. Only one company (bladtech) even makes a holster for my FNP .45. After carrying for a while in it, I am more than comfortable carrying without any active retention. I can turn that thing upside down and shake it and it takes a damn bit of force to get that thing to fall out. And it's heavy.
I'm comfortable with it. However I would carry it in a serpa if they made one.
I prefer to OC with at least a thumb snap. My normal OC is a Bianchi accumold. It has a thumb snap and a 5(ish)lb retention pull on it.

You need a thumb-break holster.
Not to say it's a bad gun by any means, would just prefer something else for carry.
i use a blackhawk 5 for my ruger sr9c for outside the waist carry.
i dont have the thumb break on right now but when i carry open i put it on.
i wear it and just take my gun out of i cant OC. the belt clip is nice and tight. even w/o the thumb break the gun will stay firmly in place
i ordered a don humme holster for CC
I carry my glock and my 1911 both in a serpa really good holster
Walker doesn't use active retention. The only time his weapon falls on the ground is when he throws it there to bare-knuckle the bad guys 5 on 1.

Very few holsters are made for my Taurus pt940.
