SR9c OWB suggestions

I've been carrying some for almost two years. My first carry piece is a gen 4 G26. I've been carrying IWB, 4 oclock strong right side. For the most part, when I travel, I sit the holster in my console because it's so uncomfortable. I teach so I can't carry at work...I wish I could.....but that's another thread, for sure.

I bought the SR9c because it fits me, and I really like the thought of a thumb safety. I know that's also a different discussion, but the lack of a safety on the 26 made me nervous.

I am looking to try OWB, and since my IWB holster is a hair loose for the Ruger, I need another holster anyway. Not looking to spend a lot, although that is secondary to function and comfort, and I like leather although I am open to suggestions.

Mitch Rosen has one his Express Line holsters offered through the "Ruger Store".

Ruger shows them backordered. The model is the 5JR Express. You could also order it direct from Rosen.

If you want kydex, Raven Concealment Phantom may be a good choice. You can adjust ride height and cant just by moving the attachments. You can also wear the same holster IWB just by adding some IWB attachments.

Thanks. I appreciate the links. I really like the looks of the Rosen holster. I have seen those holsters mentioned a lot here. I have heard that kydex is a good option, but I am old school enough I still like leather.

Iíve also been looking for a holster for my SR9c. Hereís what Iíve found so far:

I couldnít find the gun list on Milt Sparks.com (http://www.miltsparks.com/) to confirm they make holsters for the SR9c (Iím sure they do, I just couldnít confirm it). Theyíd be another good option if you donít mind waiting 6 months.

Here are a couple of Kydex models.

The Raven Concealment Phantom was new to me so Iím glad you started the thread. As for the others Iíve listed I canít say how good any of them are but none look terrible.

Well, here's some more options in the leather group.

High Noon http://www.highnoonholsters.com

Tucker Gun Leather http://www.tuckergunleather.com

Lobo Gun Leather http://www.lobogunleather.com/1_home

Simply Rugged http://www.simplyrugged.com

The Ruger SR9C has been around awhile, is a pretty popular model, and is produced by a major US gun maker. Nearly any holster maker you can find probably makes a holster for the SR9C.

Great. Thank you all very much. I am going to look through them pretty closely. It's too bad you can't wear a couple for a few days to see what works best. I do know that I don't like IWB. I am finding that I need to change my shirts to longer dress shirts or long t shirts. Heck, I may just wear nothing but Hawaiian shirts. I wouldn't stand out at all. :cool:

i recently picked up a holster for my sr40c from simply rugged (http://shop.simplyrugged.com/ecommerce/Cuda-.cfm?item_id=155&parent=669) and love it. i ordered mine with the inside-out straps so i could also wear it IWB but find that OWB conceals well enough that i dont think i will be carrying IWB very much. had mine to my door in just about a week and a half. price was pretty good too. all-in-all i am very pleased with mine.

While you're there, if you don't have a real gun belt, check out their Instructor belts. A gun belt will make carrying in any holster more comfortable.
