    Need help to purchase new holster

    I am, hopefully, a proud owner of a Sig P239 SAS 9MM.

    Now I need to buy a holster for CC. Any suggestions?

    This will be my primary CC during the cold months as I can wear a jacket. Really looking forward to taking this to the range.

    My choices were a Glock 26 9MM; a XD Sub Compact 9MM; or the Sig. Out of the three, the Sig was most comfortable in my hand. A bit heavier than the others and maybe a bit longer, but the most comfortable. I sure hope I won't be sorry.

    I guess I'm the only P239 9MM owner! Anyway, ordered a Sig holster, and just found out it's on back order. Don't need more than one OWB, so I'm not sure what the heck I'm gonna do. Hate to spend $60+ for an IWB.

    Any thoughts?

    Why? You spent all of that money on the gun. Spend the money for a good holster. Just my .02

    GALCO "Summer Comfort"... Snaps enable you to remove holster without taking off belt. Use mine in all seasons.

    Found a Fobus Roto paddle and a Galco Stow-n-Go. I'll look at the Summer Comfort.

    Thanks

    Summer Comfort used to be called the Royal Guard, in case it is still listed as such in other companies.

    The Summer Comfort is a different holster than the Royal Guard. You can see both are offered on their site for the G26.

    As I was, I stand corrected... My recommendation is the Royal Guard, been a while since I've been to the Galco site I guess.

    Hmmm, went to the Galco site and found the "summer comfort." I will look at their "royal guard."

    Thanks for the input.

    They don't make the Royal Guard for the P239. There are quite a few happy Summer Comfort customers on this forum though. You might want to give it a try.

    On another note, if you're looking for OWB leather, they make the Side Snap Scabbard for the P239. I have one, and it is a very well made holster.

    A good holster makes all of the difference for a CCW. Be willing to spend a little extra for a comfortable holster, you will never regret it.

    I have both the summer comfort and the Royal Guard holsters. Both are nice and are comfortable for an IWB holster. Understand, though, that if you have not worn a IWB holster, you may find that it take a little getting used to.

    All of this Galco Love is making me feel warm inside (it could be the burito I had for lunch).

    What belt holster did you buy?
    What are your plans for carry when it gets warm?
    How many hours a day do you carry?
    How many days a week?
    Do you take your gun off to go into work/the store?
    What is your general build?

    Great point O.P.! One of the reasons I am a fan of the IWB with snaps is that I often have to go on college campuses (in Tennessee you can not carry on campuses), and being able to unsnap and put my firearm in a lock box makes things easy. If I didn't have to do this, I might choose a different setup (not a fan of paddles though). Also, while it is legal to Open Carry with a permit here, I like not having a noticeable bulge where my gun is... Not an open carry fan.

    Just bought the Galco Stow-n-Go and a Fobus Roto. I know many don't like the Fobus line, but I've used them before and really like the comfort for a paddle.

    When it gets warm I will go back to pocket carrying my Ruger LCP.

    Hours per day depends upon what my activities will be. Normally though, 4 - 8.

    Pretty much 7 days a week.

    Only take it off if I am entering one of the 17 places that Arkansas says I can't carry.

    I'd say medium build. 5'11", 210!

    Thanks for the interest.

    My personal preference is for Bianchi paddle Lock or the new evader evader is only about $27.00 has the belt snaps.

    I have been carrying my Glock 23 in a Galco Summer comfort holster all week. Very comfortable, easy to draw from and easy to reholster, and by that I mean one handed reholstering is quick and easy to do. The holster does not shift on me during the day, and no one has noted that I was packing. Again, once you get used to carrying IWB this brand/style of holster is very comfortable.

    I have the Royal Guard for my sig 220 and like it quite a bit too. I may wear it next week, if my jealous j-frame that I normally carry, will allow me to do so.

    Here is the holster that I carry my P6 in. I truly love the thing and the customer service was very help full (Which is a big + in my book)!

    Hope this helps...
