Houston Holster = Fobus knock-off...
If that's not carry combo from hell I don't know what is.
"Just want to say I own the 9mm and 45. I am a retired Police Chief and know my guns. The 9mm C-9 is now my CCW gun in a Houston holster. The 45 is my night stand gun."
How could you go wrong? This guy's a chief and "knows his guns."
I've been shooting a Sig Traditional Compact for a couple months now. My first non-Colt 1911.
I gotta say. it wasn't love at first sight but it was pretty close. A couple of workbench tweeks later, I really, REALLY like this thing.
It's been utterly reliable from shot 1 with everything put through it and that includes some 20 year old junk and some old SWC IPSC loads.
Fit an finish are there, no sharp edges on the mainspring housing. No squared off frame top to screw up holster buying.
All stainless, night sights, plenty accurate.
It has some MIM internals which I gather most gunners find less than desirable. I don't really have much knowledge of the process.
I assume it's some sort of powdered metal technology which if you spend any time with knife guys is an obsession with them and a huge +.
In any case, I bet I could change out those parts for $20 or so. I think I got the gun into my holster new for $860 or so. Less than $875...
I'm 100% happy with it now which, kinda surprises me.
I have owned a couple officers 1911's in 45ACP but between reliability with the big 45 round and weight I walked away twice, finally got a Sig clone of Mustang and it was 100% reliable unlike the one Colt Mustang I had 20 years ago. When the Sig 938 came out I traded up to the 9mm and the gun has every option needed including night sights and is 100% reliable still almost 9 months later. And the thing still fits the pocket holster I had for the 380 model.
