Sig in USP holster
One can easily test whether a gun will fall out of a holster, or get stuck in the holster, by inserting and removing the gun a few times. The Sig P229 fit in the USP 40c holster as well as the USP did. This may not be true of all USP 40c holsters, but it was true of this particular Kramer holster.

The mag button on the Sig is not inside the holster, as you can see in my photo - it is outside the holster. So the holster cannot engage it.

I,too Have Considered Various Holsters And Makers. After Doing So, And After Hours Of Reading In This Forum, I Consider Gary's Product To Be Superior To Others Imo. I Am Not Out To Save A Few Dollars When My, Or My Families Life May Be At Stake. Infact, I Just Ordered A Maxconv For My Xd45c Tonight From Gary. I Feel Great About It And Can't Wait To Get My Holster And Mag Pouch! Gary Is Very Willing To Listen And Give Advise. Means Alot To Me.

I've designed and handcrafted something in the neighborhood of 30,000 holsters over the past 20+ years, and in the course of doing so have pretty much discovered what will and will not work. Based upon that experience, I consider this to be potentially a very dangerous practice. If you choose to ignore my advice in order to save a few $, then please feel free to do so. However, please realize that you do so at your own peril.

This Thread makes me very happy that I chose Gary to make a holster for me. Every word proves there are still some real men left in our country.

I am new to this site, and this is my first post. That said, I am in total agreement that the information from reputable holster makers, including Gary, is TOTALLY RELIABLE. Not just because of liability issues, but business reputation issues impose on them a level of honesty that you can rely on. This is a relatively small community, and for a quality maker to get the reputation that he would mislead a customer would be suicide. Just my opinion.

what a hilarious thread! i love this forum. sig 229, 228, USP, whatever, right? just stick it in and you're good.
seriously, and back on topic, search around and you'll notice that most of the experienced CCWers on this forum have come to the conclusion through many mediocre experiences with other options that a custom made holster from the reputable maker with a sturdy belt is the best way to go. there are too many makers to choose from...i think there's a page with a complete list of all makers somewhere...anyone know what i mean?
