    Why don't you just go to a gun shop. They usually have holsters there.

    The only advise I can give you, and this is second-hand knowledge for me, is that when you go to field strip and re-assemble the pistol, make sure you move the ejector out of the way.

    I guess I should have been more specific. I am looking for recommendations.

    What are you going to be doing with it while it's holstered??

    Peace,

    This. CCW or open/field carry?

    If CCW, inside waistband or on belt?

    If OC, what kind of environment?

    Most stores have an anemic selection of holsters and usually zero competence in them.

    I like my CrossBreed Holsters. I carry IWB. But, need a lot more info on you and what you are looking to do.

    I think this pistol's profile would work well with an IWB holster.

    Are you a fellow of larger proportions?? If not, carrying any full-sized service pistol (esp IWB) concealed is going to suck. I'm a little guy (5'7", 120 lbs) and I will never be able to carry that, so I've settled on a Ruger LCP for my carry weapon.

    If you're wearing a suit or jacket most days (indoors and out) then you could get away with wearing it cross-draw ala Miami Vice, but it's still kind of awkward.

    Peace,

    Check out Lobo Gun Leather

    I have several IWB holsters from him and am very pleased with them.
    Not fancy, but very good quality and affordable.

    I have a friend that owns an LCP. He has a pocket case thingy that when worn you cannot tell it's a gun. Looks like a slim wallet in his front pocket.

    Almost bought a used P95 but opted for a new LC9. I wanted a back up to my Sp101 .357.
    The P95 had a big grip...but comfortable.

    The SP101. What a handful. Wish I still had one.

    It was my first gun purchase when my wife finally agreed on one for home defense. I usually shoot .38 spc rounds at the range though. The LC9 is just a back up...bought it just to have another, but I don't have a concealed carry lic.

    I had a Supertuck at one time for my Springfield XD 45 compact. I didn't care for it really. There were just some things about it that were not up to par compared to similar holster systems. The kydex was definitely not the same quality as the two Comp-tac brand holsters that I've had. It was also not as comfy and personally didn't like the exposed muzzle of the gun at the end. There were times when I had the Supertuck that I would go to adjust and my hand would find the end of the barrel and start to kind of push it up out of the holster. I ended up sending the Supertuck back and getting a Comp-Tac MTAC. It is truly an awesome holster and the quality eclipsed that of the ST. It was definitely more comfortable with a quality of materials and construction that fantastic. It's pretty amazing how well it conceals the relative bulk of the .45.

    Back to Crossbreed - they have super customer service (at least they did when Mark was still alive.. not sure if it's the same). Also, I have one of their belts and it's really good. I also have a horse hide microclip holster for my Kahr PM9 and it's a great holster for very small guns.
