Recently I purchased a P938 pistol. It came with carrying case and a small holster that clips on one's belt. The problem I have with the holster is that it does not release the firearm unless I withdraw the firearm at a certain angle. The holster has a screw adjustable nub inside but that is not what is causing the problem. Sometimes when I attempt to pull the pistol from the holster, the pistol with the holster still attached is drawn, jerking it off my belt. This makes it useless and potentially unsafe for me. I have tried adding lubricant to the holster to no avail. If pulled out at the precise angle, the pistol exits easily. At other angles it takes quite a bit of force to withdraw the firearm. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks.
Those holsters that come with guns are almost universally trash. I have an excellent RGrizzle holster which took a couple months to get made and in the time between I had one from either DeSantis or Galco which was only okay.
Agree. For my P238, I had two leather holsters made. A Mitch Rosen OWB 5JR full detail full belt slide, and an Alessi Bodyguard shoulder rig. Both are excellent, and both came about a month after placing the telephone orders.
Well, I that answers my puzzle. Thanks. I have to wonder why they would even bother to include something like that in a relatively expensive firearm.
I never use those holsters. I highly recommend Wright Leather holsters. Love my OWB 938 holster.
It's time to go holster shopping. Thanks.
I have a fair selection in the 'holster box'. They go from custom, to the more universal pocket then Remora holsters.
I do have a nice leather custom for my better choices, P2000sk, P938, P238, & HK-45c. For the lesser used I often have something that works, like a Remora, depending on type of carry desired.
Here are a couple I have for the P938. I've had the Tucker Cover-Up (bottom holster) for a while and recently got the TT Gunleather Slim XC. I like them both. The Tucker is easy to get on and off. It's also tuckable, even though I never really use that feature. The Slim XC is very comfortable. I have several TT Gunleather holsters and have never been disappointed.
R Grizzle makes top notch leather holsters. This is my current rig from another small manufacturer. Feux Carbon fiber Kydex.

My two RGrizzle's. I prefer the front pocket holster but sometimes the wardrobe requires the IWB.
He looked like an accountant or a serial-killer type. Definitely one of the service industries.
I like my Black Arch Protos M single clip IWB. Very comfortable and secure.

I have two new Wright Leatherworks holsetrs, one IWB with two util clips and one crossbreed with starps and the extra clips if i need them. I have a belt made by The Beltman, 1"1/2 wide and rather thick. It seems with the crossbreed holster i have to bypass a belt loop as it is that wide and then it just seems like the leather belt is too rigid for the holster. I am rather new to carrying where it has to be concealed and Im trying to work out the kinks. Any suggestions? Thanks, Bill
