    Return to High Noon

    I am back to the Mr. Softy/Taurus. Have temporarily (?) retired the LC9/Kydex because of magazine release button issues. It only happened once, but that's enough. Ruger had better shape up!

    What kind of issue is it? Did it drop while you were shooting?

    I had been in the car for a while. When I got home, I unholstered, and the magazine was sticking out a 1/4", or so. According to forums, there are problems with USA-made magazines, the magazine release spring is too weak, and some of the releases don't fit the magazine notches correctly. Ruger is replacing magazines, sending out springs/latches, and offering factory service.

    Youtubers claim they replaced latches in 5-10 minutes; I figure at least an hour for this guy.
    I have trouble keeping my thumb off the latch; probably bumped it a little while drawing.

    High Noon is pretty much my go-to for leather holsters. I have one from them for all of my carry guns. Their quality is consistent, shipping is quick and fit is very good.

    I just ordered a high noon bare asset for my m&p45c. Seems like a good holster for the money.

    I have a shield 40 that I carry at times and being a lefty I do occasionally bump the mag release on something and the mag releases. It sits about 1/4 " out of the mag well (like yours did) but does not fall out completely. Is it possible you bumped the mag release button? Has it happened more than once?

    Twice, I think. It may have something to do with my digging my thumb in to achieve a "full combat grip." The Kydex (StayHolstered) covers the button pretty well, so I kind of doubt that pressure against my hip would be enough to press the release. I strongly suspect the mag release spring... and a careless thumb. Not too much I can do about the latter.
