P938 Holster that Covers Both Sides of the Safety?

I've looked at dozens of holsters for the P938 and I'm having trouble finding an IWB holster that covers the safety on the side of the gun facing away from the body. I've seen a couple pocket holster that seem to do this but most of the IWB and OWB holsters seem to leave the outside safety exposed. Anyone have a holster for their P938 that protects the safety from both sides? I'd love to get some suggestions!

I'd rather not have the safety accidentally disengaged while holstered...

Am I being over protective?

Paranoid?

I don't see how this would be a bad thing..

Wow, their website is not very user friendly. Thanks for the suggestion. Does look like they have some thumb break and snap-down options.

A bit paranoid.

My take is it would get in the way of getting a proper grip on the draw stroke.

My "summer" IWB covers the left side safety, only because it's a "sweat-shield". My winter leather doesn't cover either one. Never an issue. All in what you are comfortable with.

It's my first gun so I just wanna be safe. I haven't even taken a CC class yet, so I'll likely be using the one Sig sends you for a bit. Was just curious if there were any out there.

The Make some with out the thumb break but have a Sweat Shield and the other side comes up over the Safety.
The problem with that is only the lower half of the Grip is the only part of the Gun that
hangs out.

Take a look at Dara Holsters. daraholsters.com
They have a comment in the order info that allows you to specify issues like the safety.
I've been extremely happy with their work-GREAT Quality!
they are responsive to phone calls and helpful with answers and suggestions.
When I see other holsters pictured on here or facebook, I still think they are as good.
Let me know if it works out for you.
You will have a wait for delivery.

I converted mine to single side safety.

Doesn't cost much. Order the P238 safety lever and hammer pivot pin from SIG. You end up with no right side lever to worry about:

Thanks for some other suggestions. Yeah I've seen the single safety mod. Was just thinking it might be nice to have the ambi-safety for underlying situations.

I have a 238 and the safety is pretty snug, even when using your thumb you can tell you need a little force to move it. Even if magically the safety clicks off, you still have a trigger guard around the trigger.

Concur, there's concern of having an injured strong hand, but figure the likelihood of that isn't real high. Also, it's easy for me to bring my weak hand thumb up and over the gun to disengage the left side safety if it comes to that.

I carry OWB with the P938, and the same with my more common carry, a P229 40. Sometimes crawl around under equipment. One day I went to remove my P229 (DA/SA) for bed and was astounded to find it was cocked. The holster covers the trigger so no real risk, have no idea what snagged the hammer to cock it.

When I carried a P938 I liked the fact that I could just reach over and feel if the safety was on. I don't think I would have wanted it covered. As stated above by some of the posters, if it were covered it may hamper the ability to get a good grip before drawing. Lot of other good points above as well.
