I was going to encourage you to go with the Remora then I got to the last post and you already did. I think you will like it.

In my opinion, keeping the home defense gun locked up is NOT a good idea. During a break-in, you may spend the rest of your life trying to open the safe. Keep it loaded and ready, out of the reach of children. However, I also teach my children about firearms, talk to them about firearms often, and take them to the range with me. They know its a good thing, but always dangerous. If they want to touch it or see what its like to hold it, they ask me first and I'll let them hold it unloaded. They are not to touch it, yet, or that I now about. Therefore, it is ALWAYS good practice to keep your home defense gun out of the reach of children, loaded and ready to go.
A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

Bought a reinforced-top Remora on a whim at a local gun show. Now it's my top-pick IWB holster for the nicest full-size EDC that I own. Couldn't be happier.

I mentioned this in another thread for folks with small children. Put a small shelf above your side of the bed at the head of the bed high enough you can reach it standing on the floor by your bedside. You not going to sleep thru a child stepping on your head trying to reach that shelf. But you can get to it much faster than in a safe at night. Safes are for guns that you have no possiblility of needing in a moments notice.

You''ve definitely thought out your options well. Here my my thoughts.
Having a holster for every handgun is like having a sling for every rifle/shotgun. I think its pretty important. (For example, I have a fairly cheap holster for my Ruger MII since I only use the holster a few times a year, but I feel its important to at least have something for range use and for practical use).
So I would suggest that whatever you do, you get some type of holster for your Ruger.
I can't tell you what your best option is, but I can tell you what I would do! I would pick up a G19, get a good IWB holster for it and carry it when its legal to do so. But I should say that the G19 (and G23/G32) are without a doubt my personal favorite handguns for concealed carry. I feel like they offer a great combination of mag capacity, size, and weight. (So I'm a little biased already).
And for a holster, I would use one from SHTF Gear LLC

Just got back from lunch with a buddy of mine and found out he actually owns a G19. He's going to give it to me this Friday when we meet him and his wife for dinner. That way I can get it to the range and test it out. Hopefully, the Remora will arrive before I have to give it back so I can try it out with the Glock. For those of you who own a Remora, even though the size 10 I ordered for the P95 will also work with other similar sized pistols, I had to specifiy during checkout that it was for a P95. Does this mean it is molded specifically for the P95 or will I be able to shove the G19 in it?

A good quality holster and gun belt are essential for concealed carry.
I like IWB carry and I like High Noon holsters and have used them for years.
I carry a Glock 23 or 36 in a High Noon Public Secret holster and and us a quality two ply belt.

Take your time and shop around and whatever you decide on make sure that it securely holds the firearm.

You are going to LOVE your Remora! I choose my Remora 9 times out of 10 over the more expensive hybrid holsters and Galco's when deciding what to gear up with on a daily basis. I doubt you will look any further after trying your Remora, as the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it! The size 10 will work on similar size pistols it's not a molded type holster it is a compression holster GUN FITMENT INCLUDES: GLOCK 19, 23, 25, 32, 38 / CZ 75 COMPACT / H&K P30 / SIG P229, P250C / KAHR TP40, T40, T9, TP9 / RUGER SR9, SR40 / BERETTA STORM / TAURUS PT911
