    I'll soon be receiving my new SR9 and I'd like to get a holster for it.

    Fobus has several offerings for left-handers. Any love for the Fobus holsters, here?

    I'd love to see photos of holstered SR9s, if possible.

    Thanks, guys.

    I didn't care for the Fobus, or other plastic holsters I've owned.

    They work. That's about all I'll say for them.

    I'm a leather guy, I've worn leather holsters for over 35 years for a myriad of pistols and revolvers, both on duty and off. Never had an issue with any of them, really.

    So, you don't like plastic holsters. Why not?

    I'm liking a Tagua leather paddle holster that was recommended: PD3-351 (Black), or PD3-353 (Brown).

    Cost is around $50. Just not sure how securely it holds the gun.

    Here's a pic:

    But I'm also liking the Fobus Roto Paddle (HK1RPL), which sells for about $40:

    A well boned leather holster is a fine thing. You can find good ones at Galco leather, and the Bianchi carrylok is another option to consider.

    Here is a holster I like and it holds any gun I have from an LCR, SR40c, Taurus 5" model 92, to a GP100 357. It can be worn OWB left/or right handed. It has the adjustable leather strap to hold any gun in place and easily removed for draw. I am left handed and wear it OWB left side. I would say it hides any size gun pretty darn good. Best of all it is inexpensive.

    The more I look at them, the more I'm really starting to like the designed flexibility of the Fobus Roto Paddle Holster... :D

    It's all about getting what you like best that does what you want it to do.

    I've got The Pro-Carry HD from The Holster Store Maker for my Ruger SR9c. Molded fit, tight with a well done sewn in metal clip for inside the waistband. At a glance I can see if the safety is on or off, access to drop out a clip. Trigger is concealed and the top red flag fits in it as well.

    ^^^^^^^^^^ That looks good and leather yet. The price is right also.
    I never cared much for molded holsters that look like guns. The point IMO is not to look like I am carrying a gun.

    ^^^^^^^^^ I looked for days to find that holster Buster. It is an inside the belt CC so you'll never know what it looks like because you won't see it. I think the idea is that it makes a tight fit so as not to allow movement or fall out. The clip on the holster fits so tight to a belt and pant you cannot lift the holster out without using two hands. And pull out of the gun itself is firm.
    When i got it the fit was really tight so I wrapped the gun in wax paper for a week and worked it in and out.

    I think I may prefer this holster design over the Tagua design, although I'm still debating paddle vs. clip.

    I'll be wearing this strong side, OWB.

    My bride has a Fobus Right handed for her SR22. She likes it, and the holster too.

    Hey, Smokier, earlier today, I pulled the trigger on a leather Tagua PD3 holster, in brown. I prefer that my SR9 be cradled in leather.

    If the Tagua doesn't work out, then I'll probably try the Fobus.

    I had an SR9C for a brief period. A Blackhawk Serpa holster using the belt loop platform worked great for OWB concealed carry. Comfortable too.
    With its positive retention, it could be used for open carry as well.
    It's plastic, but fast and secure.

    Have you looked at the Serpa holsters?

    *Edit* Yeah, what the poster above me said. I've used a Serpa for years now and I have no complaints. I generally carry IWB but if it's going to be OWB, I use a Serpa. Have used one for several Glocks and a 1911. I had a Fobus paddle holster for a Sig P226 I used to own and I never did like it.

    I finally ordered a leather Tagua PD3 Open Top holster, in tan. ;-)
