    VERY happy to be corrected! Great looking holster!
    I still can't find one for my SR9c.

    More tuckables without clips

    Garrett Industries. They have other models that are tuckable without clips.

    Aholster. EDIT - my error, this holster has a wraparound clip, but it is a clip.

    I personally have been using the clips because I've been burned by one of the loop ones before. It was supposed to be one where I could pull off the loop and then undo the screw to adjust the size of the belt loop (a blade-tech "pull the dot"). The problem is, one of the loops was so securely attached to the screw head that I literally couldn't budge it off of the screw.

    Currently I'm using a Comp-Tac Infidel with the Shirt Tucker Strut. It's a clip, but it actually holds the gun fairly securely. As I'm moving to a new carry platform, I'm open to new options.

    I've got a couple of good leather holsters that cost less than $50 with no clips. Heck if you are a Glock user, you can buy their plastic belt slide for less than $20! Looking at the $50-100 range there are even more good leather and kydex offerings.

    Like some of the previous posters, it's not a matter of elitism, I just don't trust belt clips. I seen them fail too many times to trust a firearm with them.

    Ok, I get it! :D There are tuckable loop holsters! Comfort might be an issue with some, others have loops attached to what amounts to a clip, and variety remains limited.

    MY POINT WAS...

    ... in the nylon holsters I've purchased, the metal clips can make an otherwise leather holster more secure.

    Carry on, folks! :)

    Edited to add... I totally trust my Crossbreed and it's clips! (Thanks, dbp!!)

    I thought your point was pretty clear...I think folks were posting that their personal experience has shown/proven otherwise.

    I don't think anyone was trying to change your mind, they were just offering a differing view for readers who might not have the experience to know the difference

    Hmmm...just curious, but to those saying that clips are bad, would you also say the same of a paddle?

    It seems that belt loops seem to be the common denominator in the "good" holsters you have been describing.

    Here in Colorado most places I am aware of wont even let you participate in training for a CCW with a nylon holster; they're a bad idea.

    Sideguard makes their whole product line for the SR9C. A couple weeks wait, sub $100 and completely worth it in every way. I use one of their double tuck snaps for IDPA.

    I was more looking for a comparison of why belt clips are a bad idea, but a paddle is a good idea, when both are so easy to take on and off. Why is a paddle holster in the same category as belt loops?

    Modern well designed paddle holsters aren't as easy to take off as you may think. The paddle holsters I use regularly are actually harder to remove than a holster using loops/tunnels to attach to the belt.

    The advantage of a paddle over a clip is how far apart the retention clips/lips/ledges are located on the paddle. It is much easier to level a single point clip off a belt...especially given it's inherent play on most belts
