P938 Concealable Holster

Pursuing a satisfactory holster, let alone the perfect one, is frustrating. A holster fit is so personal that other peoples advice isn't usually very helpful. I've mostly preferred leather over the years and a good leather holster mistake is expensive. That said, I picked up a P938 and I think it's a terrific carry piece. After going not-cheap on the gun I went all miserly on a holster. Darn if it isn't perfect. $12.95 Uncle Mike's Size 1.

The apex of the clip is pretty high so the gun goes low; and the fabric extension up the inside keeps the hammer and tail off your skin. What can I say? The fit is just right on me and the P938 is mostly forgotten throughout the day. I'm a fan.

What have you found that works and why?

You're definitely right about holsters. It's really hard to find the right one, especially for concealed carry. I'm still looking for the perfect one for me.

Right now, I use a $12 Blackhawk holster that's essentially identical to yours. I happen to have, I believe a size 6 that, for me, works in everything from my P229 to my Glock 27 to my HK P2000SK, so I can use it for many CCW situations. In spite of it being cheap, it works very well for me.

P938 holster

I bought a Don Hume 715 for my Kahr PM40 and I used it for my P238 also. It seemed JUST a bit big for the 238, but still worked well. I ordered a P938 two months ago and if the damn thing EVER comes in, I think the Hume holster should be a perfect fit. I carry in the small-of-back and the Hume holster is super comfortable.To the point, I forget I'm carrying. I have caught myself almost walking out the door with the weapon in my waistline. NOT a good thing to do here in Illinois!

Wow. I remember almost walking out the door without one once. Don't worry. The US Constitution will catch up with the Illini State one day, too.

Thanks for the holster heads-up.

Been using my Desantis Intruder that I got for my officer sized Rock Island 1911. My 938 fit in it perfect with no retention problems. I like a stiffer holster that allows easier reholstering since some of the places I go into do not allow firearms. Since it is my job to go into these places then I perfer just to remove firearm and not push the issue.

My only issue with my Desantis Holster is that they did not put enough sweat sheilding on it to keep the weapon from rubbing on my skin. But I have gotten used to it and hardly know I have my weapon on me.

I picked up a Remora holster for around 30 bucks. It's perfect for me. It's kinda different in that it has no clip! It's made of a very durable rubberized material that grips. You put it in your waist band and it stays! IT has a reinforced top for easy reholstering and a sweat shield if desired. Check 'em out - very comfortable!

Hi, All!
My current edc is the P238. Sig has a pocket holster that fits both the 238 and the 938 that I use. It's set up so that even if it prints, it prints as a rectangle, not as a gun shape.

I just got my P938 yesterday and I immediately tried my Don Hume 715 holster with it and it fits like a new glove!! Excellent holster. I carry small-of-back and it works perfectly!

I have the Uncle Mikes holster and it feels like the P938 is going to fall out when I ride my motorcycle (which I do every day). I'm looking into a few other holsters and carry methods which I hope will be more comfortable.

1) An ankle holster that has a retention strap. Only drawback is I prefer to wear this type of holster on the left calf and wouldn't be able to draw on the bike without dismounting.

2) A kydex trigger holster. I've seen these at gun shows, but am not too familiar with them. So am unsure of how sturdy they would actually be, or if they would be a major issue when you reholster.

3) A Kydex IWB back holster. I think this would have to be custom so that the draw is properly canted. Only drawback would be it's a slower draw than having it right next to your hip.

Anyone use these? Pro's/con's? Comfort?

I also use a Remora. I bought a Remora #4 for my Kel-Tec PF-9 BUG and, when I got the P938, found that it slips right in. However, since it's not really shaped quite the same, retention isn't as snug as I would prefer. So, I ordered the model specifically for the 938.

Also, since the 938 has a manual safety digging into my fat ... er, I mean "love handle" ... I ordered the Remora with a sweat shield to mitigate the effects of that safety's irritation.

I even took the Remora out for a run the other day, tucked into my sweats. Although it felt like it was slipping, each time I would inconspicuously reach back and check its position, is hadn't moved an inch. Nifty, comfy little holster.

I like the Galco IWB for my P238. I also have an OWB on order with TT Gunleather.

Model 22 Compact Belt Slide Gun Concealment Holsters

I'm late to the party, but I've been carrying my P238 in this for the last 9 or 10 months. It's a model 22, size 25K. I've tried others, but keep coming back to it. I carry it strong side hip and cross draw when sitting or driving a lot. The P938 also fits and I'll use it for that when I get a little more comfortable with the 9mm.

I recently picked up a 938 Nightmare to replace my 238 Equinox for my EDC. My local gun shop had an Uncle Mikes IWB Size 10 in stock that I have been using. It fits very tight and covers the trigger. It doesn't come up high enough to cover the skin side but I wear an undershirt between the gun and my skin.





I am not sure I would call it perfect... if it came up a little bit higher on the inside and the clip was mounted a little bit higher to make the pistol sit a little bit lower, then it would be.

Overall its pretty darn good though. You won't worry about it falling out though, and I believe they make one with a strap for about the same money (I think it was 11.99) or a couple dollars more.

You and I have parallel lives! I just sent my KT PF9 back to the factory and bought a p938 to replace it as my EDC CCW.

Remora holsters are the only thing that work for me.

I've never owned a SAO gun with safety (my KT and Glock are DAO, no safety). I've had people telling me how dangerous it would be to carry my new Sig without holster with a thumb strap, etc.

I can't see the safety switching off just because I have it in a Remora IWB. That safety seems to take quite a deliberate effort. And... the trigger must be pulled too.

Opinions?
