iTac Roto Paddle

Gentlemen/Ladies,
Just a "heads up". I purchased the iTac roto paddle holster for my P-229 40S&W primeraly because it was backed by Sig. I like the "Paddle" concept for CC as well as the locking mechanism of the holster.
The holster ad read: ....CCW, target. I purchased it on-line.
Just wanted to say that in my opinion the iTac (the people who make holsters for Sig) is not sutable for concealed carry. While the unit is well made and inexpensive, the holster sticks out too far from the body for adaquate concealed carry. It would be perfect for Competition where concealability is not important.
This is a prime reason why I don't like buying things on-line. You can't see or try the product before buying. I went to 3 dealerships here in my area and no one had a "Paddle holster" for my Sig. (One guy didn't even know what a paddle was) And another guy (with a huge "SIG" sing on his store, told me to go on-line to find it.
Again this is just my opinion. You all take care.

I have one for my 2022, but here in illinois we cant legally conceal. I like it because it hangs out past my heavy winter clothes when im coyote hunting and it is pretty easy to draw from.

Thanks for that info- I'm in the hunt for a cc holster for my 228. I can eliminate the ITac.

I have not seen that particular holster, but I bought a similar one and removed the holster from the paddle,3 screws, and reshaped the mount bracket in a vise. It is now nice and close to the body. See if this is applicable to yours!

I dont think that would work here... you would have to cut out almost a full inch that makes up the rotating assembly. Im not saying it cant be done, but i dont beleive i myself am capable of making it work well and being durable.

I just bought one of these online becasue it was backed by Sig and it was inexpensive.

I don't mind how far it sticks out, but it's hard plastic and form fitting. It seems like it would damage the finish on my pistol.

Does anyone else worry about this? Is there a better paddle holster that doesn't scratch and scrape my finish?

any paddle holster is going to stick out as it's owb & any kydex/similar or leather holster is going to show wear on the firearm.

Try Safariland with ALS. It's a thumb activated release, suede lined, and rides pretty close for OWB. Another would be a Blackhawk Serpa, but it's unlined.

I learned the same lesson with the Fobus paddle holster that had the "roto" feature. I did find that the regular Fobus holster works well enough until I get my Crossbreed Super Tuck.

A roto holster of necessity sticks out farther than a standard paddle. Galco makes an excellent paddle holster for the P239 (M5X Matrix). They make the same model for about every SIG model and most other pistols.

If you want Kydex but in an IWB design, Galco makes a model called the Triton which is supposed to fit all P228/229 designs (I can't attest to this yet, but my new Triton and Matrix both should arrive in the mail Tuesday so I'll have more info then.)

The Holster Works makes custom Kydex IWBs for just about everything, including the P239.

People are apparently still reading this thread, so I'll update my opinion by saying that I no longer recommend Galco Matrix- their Triton IWB holster is still the best I've found for my P229 (I don't like the Crossbreed style, just personal preference). I now choose the Holster Works/SDZ Holsters over all comers for a simple passive-retention paddle holster. You have to look really hard to find a model they don't have a holster for, and their customer service is beyond compare.

I'm not at all into roto-holsters these days either, by the way- I started wearing my paddle and IWBs at about the 2:30 position and no longer need to have a cross-draw capability.

One was part of my package when I bought my P229 SAS about a year ago; I decided I didn't like it after only a few minutes. It sat in my box-o'-holsters until this week when I took a coat hanger, some duct tape, and "re-purposed" into a bed holster.

That's a good look, I think I may try the same. Thanks for the tip!
