    holster choice

    I just bought a ruger sr9c and will be looking for a couple of holsters, one a cheap nylon belt holster and the other a concealment holster. Any thoughts? I have been looking on the web and I am not to clear as to what fits this pistol.

    There are two members here who hand make holsters.

    Why not keep it local and in the family?

    A holster should not be selected because it's "Cheap".

    I'd recommend a retention holster of some type.

    I use "Blackhawk Serpa's" for my choice of carrying.

    yes retention is especially nice when OCing being you don't have eyes in the back of your head it's much harder for a BG to take your gun if there is retention involved.. Here is a nice option for winter months being it has a jacket slip. I own and use it frequently now that I OC on a regular basis.

    don't be discouraged if you cant find the accumold specifically for your gun.. find a gun on the list that will fit and is the same as yours as far as size and trigger guard size/placement and go with that. my Px4 uses the 92fs holster listed on the page.


    As far as CC goes i'm still looking myself.. lol.

    My economical OC is a Blackhawk SERPA. My CC is a Galco SOB. Retention should be a very low priority. I had carried Mexican for years when my first IWB failed.

    There is ample discussion on OCDO of minimal risk OBSERVED of a simple gun snatch. The Ludic Fallacy applies to gun carry as well as to all aspects of reality.

    I don't buy the nylon holsters because they are cheap but I find them to be comfortable. I use a blackhawk CQC paddle holster for my commander and their IWB holster for my LC9. I will look into the holster makers that are members of this forum.
    thanks

    The leather Blackhawk Size #3 for the glock 17/22 will fit the SR9c perfectly..... I have one and also have the next size up for my SR40C.

    I guess I will throw in a positive note to "Big River Leathers". Scott made a holster for my KelTec PF9. It is OUTSTANDING!! I carried it for 7 days straight in Tampa FL and I gots no complaints!! Great product, good prices and a WI guy too!!

    He also made one for my wife's S&W M&P 40C. Very well made, great retention!

    Thanks Scott!!

    What make/model do you carry in it? Do you carry a mag, too?

    i heard that Buffalo Holster Co. and Cleveland's Holster Co. have teamed up to raise funds for an animal shelter in need, by offering part, or all of the proceeds to the shelter.

    I have an idea...

    There are many people who have the proverbial box of holsters,
    & others who want to know what fits.
    How about we get them together?

    Would have to be someplace relatively private so people don't freak about pistols being handled.
    I'm thinking a room in a restaurant, or maybe a certain repair shop in Racine, after hours...
    make it a potluck?

    No live ammo in any gun to be handled. Checked by 2 people.
    All safety rules apply.

    And if someone wanting a hoster meets up with someone with a spare they want to sell, all the better.
    Y'all figure out how best to label the holsters for ownership & "what does this fit".

    Yes, I'm focussing on SE WI again, because this is where a lot of the population is.
    Feel free to do the same in your area.

    The only member-made holster I've tried is Cleveland's...
    It's sort of new so I'm still working to get it broken in, but it is quality construction.

    I just got a Cleveland (ugly holster) a few weeks ago also and I would have to agree it is top quality and it makes my Glock 23 (40cal) just vanish behind my shirt.

    I've got one for my Ruger SR9. I really like it as well. Very comfortable when worn for an extended period of time.

    I love my Serpa, but especially love my Galco Classic Lite. Shoulder carry is my only way of 100% confy carry all day, in car, walking around, working. The only thing I wouldn't do with it is exercise. I am looking for an alternative for that.

    Do you always wear a sport coat or suit? How do you keep it concealed?

    I have a Crossbreed super tuck, for my Glock 36 it is great. Very comfortable, very concealable. It looks exactly like one of clevelands "ugly holsters" but like 3x the price, lol. I will be buying my next from him and my dads as well.

    What does carry Mexican mean if you don't mind my asking. I did a search of the site but got a long form to fill out and though it would be easier to just ask here. I was unable to get past those fuzzy letter things.
