    One for Two...

    Hello. A good time back, a poster here named "Richard" mentioned to me that the Bersa Thunder, a very popular and inexpensive 380 ACP would fit in Eric's OWB holster ( for the Makarov.

    I thought, "Pish Pish and Posh Posh; ain't no way. The Makarov has a rounded trigger guard while the Bersa has that hooked lookin' thing."

    Well, I was wrong.

    Here's my EG Makarov with the HBE holster for it. By the way, the holster is exceptionally comfortable to me and holds the gun's butt in toward the body allowing for very easy concealment beneath a light garment.

    The Makarov fits snugly in the holster, but the draw is in no way impeded.

    ...but lookie here! The Bersa does fit the holster and very well I might add. It is not quite as tight as the Makarov, but it isn't loose either.

    It is my impression that more than a few Makarov owners also have the Bersa and thought that this might be of interest.

    Thanks pretty neat (and awfully nice of you to admit he was right too). I found out recently that my Kahr TP-9 fits into my Sig 229 ITP holster but a little looser than yours does.

    Stephen, I expect the Firestorm 380 would fit even better than the Bersa since it has the rounded trigger guard.

    Firestorm 380

    Thanks for the info. I have a Mak and the wife has a Bersa it would be nice to have interchangeable holsters.

    I know holster folks tend to reckon - one rig for one gun but - indeed some versatility can work in some cases, and well too.

    I have had for quite some time a Horseshoe leather rig for a 1911 full size and because it has not had a huge amount of use is still pretty stiff. My BHP fits in it almost as if they were made to go together.

    My main criterion is basically whether the ''other gun'' sits well and secure enough.

    ...for those who like the high speed CZ52 in 7.62x25, holsters for the Beretta 92 fullsize guns work well. I found a Bianchi Askins Avenger in a gunshop's "used" bin and it fits the CZ like it was made for it...

    Another two for one - USP 40c and Sig P229

    I bought a Kramer horsehide belt scabbard holster for my H&K USP 40 compact and found that my Sig P229 was also a perfect fit in the same holster. It was a pleasant surprise:
