Ok you may have read my other thread after much looking around, researching and thinking I have decided on a few things and narrow down my choices.

I am wanting a holster with at least some sort of retention, must work for both open and conceal carry, and looking to stay under $50.

With that being said the ones I am currently looking at are:
DeSantis Quick Snap or Maverick - Concern that the holster might move too much on my belt.

The Maverick is the same only with a spring metal clip instead of the snap.

Fobus Paddle Holster - How close would this hold to my body?


Uncle Mikes Super Slide - Nylon holsters are usually bulky...


What yall think? Has anyone tried any of these or know of another holster that might fit my needs?

Thank you,
Kevin

Of your choices, I only have personal experience with the Fobus.

It stays very close to my body.  The adjustment screw works well.

For Open Carry the Fobus Paddle is great and cheap.
I have one for my p11.

For close to the body carry, the Don Hume JIT Slide is excellent.
Rides high on the belt. Though I think the Grandfather Oaks Evolution is a bit higher.
No extra retention needed with that in my opinion.

I wouldn't limit yourself to one Holster for Concealed and Open carry.
The advantages of open vs concealed will be removed....

This is a recently designed holster by us. I use it all the time.





Holds the gun in tight. In addition to its being an OWB (between the belt and pants), it also functions as a pocket holster. It's not yet up on our website, but is available for order.

I vote for "The High And Tight".

Marines would like it.

I have had every type of holster from IWB, pocket, to the desantis quick snap.... The one that I use the most is that belt clip. Nothing is going to stay closer to your body and the retention is kept by your body pressing against your beltline. And to top it all, its very inexpensive.

My P3AT in the FOBUS I have for it will disappear under just a longish T-Shirt. Cheap, simple, effective, good retention with no strap, etc. to slow down presentation of the pistol and easy to remove if I have to go into a potential victim disarmament zone. I like FOBUS holsters for some of my other handguns but prefer other holster types for some of them. For the P3AT, however, the FOBUS and a pocket holster cover all my carry options/needs where the P3AT is concerned just fine.

I am planing on getting a clip as well for conceal carry but it wouldn't really work for open carry. The Barsony holster is coming this week I will post pics and a review of it for yall.

The fobus looks like a good holster but doesn't seem like it would hold tight to the body...

What is the price of this holster? When will it be available?

+1 The Fobus stays close enough to the body that I found it useful to install a plastic sweat shield for use on my bicycle under a cycling jersey.  The older Fobus would stay a little further away from the body, but you can't buy them anymore.
