Urban Carry Holster

Hello
Does anyone here have this holster? If so how is it working out for you? I was thinking about picking one up but not sure if it's worth it.

In the video that Woody linked, the guy's draw looks very labored and cumbersome. I wouldn't want to try that with my heart racing and my vision tunneling during an attack... The whole "pull the tab up" thing adds precious seconds to your draw stroke in an emergency/engagement in a SD situation, too.

That said, it is very discrete. No one would even guess you were carrying with that thing. Which maybe is what the manufacturer is aiming for. If you get it, I'd say practice with it. A lot.

I'm concerned with your points plus what he references with an assertive tug - gun almost flies out. Like you say MG - adrenaline, tunnel vision, high stress situation - that gun will probably fly out and hit the attacker in the face. Hopefully with enough force to knock him out!

I agree though - looks comfortable and is deep concealed.. I'd rock it if it had better retention.

I agree with what has been said already above. I was kind of expecting him to rip his underwear out with the holster.LOL

Thanks for all the feedback. I watched the review, and his review of the medium holster which would be the right one for the P938. And I decided this would not be a good fit for me. Too many things to worry about that can go wrong.
I'm new to conceal carry I want to find something that's comfortable. There are so many options out there it's hard to figure out what would be a good fit.

I'm right there with you. I'm a skinny guy at 6'0 and around 150 lbs (fluctuates). CCW at the 2 - 4 range is almost impossible for me without wearing some seriously oversized clothing. I bought a cheap Uncle Mike's appendix carry of my P239 and is easily concealable with normal shirt and shorts. And it's not too uncomfortable. I have a Bianchi OWB holder for my M11A1 that I wear at the 430 position. But is very uncomfortable sitting down. Think I'm going to try Alien wear holster. Seems to have some good reviews and is decent priced.

I think one of the more important things is finding out what kind of draw is most comfortable and expeditious for you. Then find a holster that meets that requirement along with your retention/safety standards that is the most comfortable to live on your body for hours on end.

If you have to go through several motions before you can even get your hand on the butt of the pistol or that it has a chance of getting hung up on your waistband as it is being pulled up your chance of surviving a self defense situation is greatly reduced .. the pistol is moving up as you pull the belt tab as your trying to grab it with your strong side hand .. think you would be lucky if you could get a good grasp on your weapon 50% of the time on the first try ..

To me that spells " DEAD "

And if your setting and need to draw your pistol it seems its something that's near impossible to do ..

Go with a good IWB and forget these gimmick holsters that end up on the top of the mountain of no longer used holsters we all have in a box some where ....

Garret Industries Holsters are a good place to start looking !

Thanks for the feedback. I thought about the Aliengear holster or crossbread holster(I think that's the name) both similar. But they seem to have a lot of material with those. Just going to have to keep searching.

Yea after watching the videos the urban carry is not for me.
Thanks for the suggestion I'll check out what they have to offer.

That holster doesn't fit any of my self defense scenario so it's not for me.

You can never go wrong with a good IWB holster and a untucked cover shirt. I try to dress simply and minimize my draw should I ever have to draw my weapon. That urban carry holster is too complicated for me.

I agree but I do go with a OWB holster in colder months when more and heavier shirts are worn that make the OWB holster easier to conceal ..

But with any holster I wear it in the same position so my repetitive drawing motion is identical no matter which holster I wear !! or which weapon I'm carrying !!

If a standard holster is not your thing then take a look at Sneaky Pete holsters;- SneakyPete. I occasionally use one for my P238. They do not have a version for the P938 with the Hogue Rubber Grips.
Another alternative is a PDA Holster:- PDA Holsters - Firearms Concealment Made Easy. Again for occasional use with my P938.
Both these holsters are a lot less ungainly to access than the video in the second post, and are worn in positions similar to regular holsters. Watching that video actually made me cringe, and as was stated above, I expected the guy's underwear appear and a flying pistol to hit him in the face.

Thank you for the suggestions. I took a look at those and I don't think those would fit my needs. But thanks for the suggestions!
