    FNP9 - OWB Carry

    Guys,

    I need help. I am moving to KY and can apply for my CC permit until I have 6 months residency. WA does have reciprocity with KY BUT i plan on carrying OC most of that 6 months time just to avoid confusion.

    Here is my issue. I have an FNP9. I have a Blackhawk Serpa Sig P250 model (it fits with barely a wobble) but have never actually worn it OC. I just don't trust it.. I bought it because of the retention factor, but now I have heard stories if people getting dirt stuck in the locking mechanism if tackled to the ground and unable to free the firearm from the holster. I have decided I want a OWB Leather holster with a thumb break. (brake?) I also't don't like how the pistol sits a few inches away from the body. I want my firearm ON me, not hanging from my hip by a piece of plastic.

    I have been looking at DOn Hume, Galco, and many other I just though I would get some input before I spent 75-100 bucks on a good leather holster. Thanks much guys.

    ***MY EDC is a Crossbreed Supertuck. I want to carry more OC but don't trust my OC holster. I want reliable leather.***

    ***EDIT*** I have also written the KY AG to see if my CC permit is valid while I am waiting even though I am changing my address per law within 2 weeks of me moving. We will see what happens there. THat's why I figure OC will be my best option till I can take the KY class to get my CCDW for that state.

    Look into Safariland's rotating hood holsters. I suggest their "fine tac" models. Much cheaper than leather, just as strong, and won't crack and look like crap after 5 or 10 years. They'll also never jam from debris, not really possible.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Check out Galco, they have a wide variety of leather holsters in all different style and most of them don't go for more than $75. I have a leather paddle and a leather belt and they both work great, plus they look nice.

    Try out a bladetech holster. They are a bit pricey, but are made by order, so it might take a few weeks to get it. There is no retention button as it uses friction.

    Well, I'm on the search for an outside the waistband holster as well. I want to get an open top but I just can't justify it because of the possibility of spilling my gun. But how can I help your thread? Well, I can tell you what not to get. I got one of these a while ago and I just don't care for it. I feel that it is cheap quality.

    Gould and Goodrich < First holster from them I've bougth and I just didn't like it. I feel that the leather (if it is leather) around the trigger gard is flimsy, I don't like that. I want some tough non-bendable leather around my trigger gaurd. Not some flimsy thin stuff. Also, after carrying a safariland holster, I didn't like how the thumb break didn't have good reinforcement. I love the safariland thumb break...
