    Having a bit of a CC holster dilemma

    So right now I have 2 holsters.

    I have a SERPA holster from Blackhawk that I use for being in the woods/hunting/carrying openly. But I don't want to carry openly in public so I need a concealed one.

    Well, there are like no choices for a shoulder holster at Cabela's or Gander Mountain by me and I'm worried about getting one online and having it not fit me well or not fit the gun. I ended up getting this airsoft gun shoulder holster at Gander that a guy directed me to. It actually holds the gun pretty nice, but I don't care for how it fits on me. I returned it.

    I then decided I'd get an OWB (I don't want IWB) that sat a bit higher so my gun would be more hidden under a shirt. Well I got some decent one for $35 but when I got home, I noticed it sat no higher really than my SERPA...so now I have to return THAT one too.

    What reasonably-priced OWB holsters do you guys suggest? Preferably a clip on, so I can take it off easy when I get in the car.

    What REASONABLY-PRICED shoulder holsters do you guys suggest? Many are sooo expensive. And I don't feel like spending over $30 for one (I know, that's cheap).

    I carry a Ruger SR9 (which is kinda big to conceal in the first place)

    There's an entire section of this board dedicated to holsters and carry options.

    BTW, your definition of reasonably-priced isn't very reasonable. You can get a cheap piece of crap shoulder rig or you can buy one that works and fits well.

    How do you see prices/shop on that Vega site? I can look at holsters, but then can't do anything from there.

    Checkout Kangaroo Carry. It's a very good holster and very comfortable. I carry my S&W model 19 2.5" .357. Not the lightest gun around...31.5 oz.
    Some guys get hung up on this holster because you wear it just below the solarplexes so they get the feeling it's like a bra. I carry all day and at home.
    Have had this holster for a month and a half. Get the Air Marshall II, around $40 bucks. Very Comfortable and very concealed.

    You will need to spend more than $30 for a quality holster and belt. You should look at it as a system. You are not going to be happy with a cheap holster, what gun are you carrying?

    The problem with concealing a SERPA is that the paddle forces it out. To some point, all paddles push the holster out further than one that attaches directly to the belt. If you want a OWB holster that rides tight look into the beltslides. And while a few holsters can be had for the $30 range, most decent holsters start at the $40 range and go up. I've not paid less than $40 for a beltslide until I started making a few. This is a great beltslide and is the general basis for the ones I made. I wear them in the car with no real issues.

    If you want a cheap paddle look into the fobus paddles.

    Cheap shoulder rigs suck! I found a used rig (Bianchi) for $10 bucks at a gunshow. It was already broke in. I just don't carry that gun that much. The Shooters Shop in West Allis (84th north of Oklahoma) has a bunch in stock and they will help you. If you find one you like you can search ebay for a used one. Maybe save a few bucks. they got an indoor range there so you can do a little shooting then shop.

    I would point you to High Noon for shoulder holsters, but you are about $130 shy of their pricing for the Undertaker and about $55 shy for the Underarmor units. They are great, fit well and hold the weapon nicely, but they are not giving them away. I have a couple Undertakers and they work great.

    Unless you are very lucky, buying cheap will get you a box of unused holsters and you will eventually spend the $$$ for a quality holster. In the end, it is far cheaper to spend the $$$ up front and get a quality holster the first time. Ask me how I know...
