I am probably not alone on this regardless of pistol or holster. I was having a problem with my Sig P239 and my crossbreed holster (horse hide). I don't feel it is necessarily a fault with either - just one of those things. Often, when I sit/press against something firm, including the car seat, I will unknowingly pop the mag release button and my mag will be slightly out - HUGE PROBLEM!!! I don't want to be left with just the one round in the chamber because of a jam and I don't want to lose my mag. I like the position of the mag release on the Sig - it is not too recessed and not too prominent - my thumb finds it easily. I can't say enough good things about this holster. I carry at about the 5 o'clock position. I am about 6'1" 195 lbs. I wish I could contribute this to a bony hip, but I have a small amount of fluff which I am working on. I went to my local saddle shop and had him sew and glue an extra horseshoe shaped piece of leather onto my holster - see pictures. It is positioned around the mag release button. The scuff inside the horseshoe is from the button. 10 minutes and $6 - problem solved!!! I can't push the button through the holster now regardless of how hard I try - even using my fingers. I was considering punching a hole at this location which may have worked as well, but I didn't want to risk the possibility of creating a snag. Hope this is able to help some of you.
