    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.

    I’ve also been looking for a holster for my SR9c. Here’s what I’ve found so far:

    I couldn’t find the gun list on Milt Sparks.com (http://www.miltsparks.com/) to confirm they make holsters for the SR9c (I’m sure they do, I just couldn’t confirm it). They’d be another good option if you don’t mind waiting 6 months.

    Here are a couple of Kydex models.

    The Raven Concealment Phantom was new to me so I’m glad you started the thread. As for the others I’ve listed I can’t say how good any of them are but none look terrible.

    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 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.
