Holsters, pocket pistola variety

Did a search, fu must be off. Looking for an alternative to my Blackhawk! soft holster. Something with a more wallet-like, squared off profile. The soft ones are ok...for awhile, but then they begin to lose their shape.

For reference I'd be stuffing it with a Sig P238 (size 03 in the Blakchawk brand), but there are lots of similarly sized pocket pieces. Anyone else had this problem?

Not blackhawk cheap, but nice.

They're made for all kinds of pistols. That one just happens to be made for a Ruger.

I use a Desantis Nemesis for my CW380. Grippy outside so it stays in your pocket on the draw.

Inexpensive and works.

Thanks. How long have you used it, and how well does that hooker flap retain its rigidity?

Interesting. I like the idea, but would prefer something inside the pocket. Thanks for the link, something to think about.

Leather. Nice. Bet those hold their shape well. I'm a tight ass though.


Thanks for the links. Looking forward to more.

I've had it about 6 months and it gets about daily use, as this is my lighter clothes / shorts / back and forth to work (since I can't carry inside my building), so summertime is my pocket carry's main time.
The hooker flap is, near enough as makes no difference, as stiff as the day I got it. I have zero complaints, would buy this again in a heartbeat. And at ~$20 how much of a risk is it?

Me, too...so I did the DIY thing. It's not cheaper if you're just looking for one, but you can make a bunch of holsters. Meco was cool with me ripping off one of his designs...really makes you appreciate his craftsmanship after trying it yourself.

So far so good. It's cheap. Buy 3 and throw me out if they lose shape.

I have a Galco horsehide pocket holster that has been great. I have used it daily for years and it is still going strong. Im talking 4 or 5 years, so its really seen some use. The hook on it really keeps it in my pocket. In fact it works so well, it takes some effort to remove it from jeans. I believe that they run $50 or so. Not to bad since they last years. The cheap $15 ones last less than a year.

I have a Galco shoulder harness for my 1911, and like it pretty well. Nice stuff. I'll look into their pocket line, thanks.

I'll look at the Kydex stuff, too, but unless they have a liner how does it affect the finish?

Here's what I've been using. It works ok, but as you can see the corner in front of the trigger guard folds over time...not very much of it, either. Which means that the profile outline looks a lot less inconspicuous.

Just looked up the Galco, and it doesn't look like they offer one specific to the Sig.

I don't see any pocket holsters, or my model listed, but I'm sure he could make one. Must be good at it, too, because there's a waiting list!

It looks like there's some sort of interior liner for rigidity, but not sure...?

I have a Don Hume pocket holster for my NAA .32 that has held up well. Got it cheap off of eBay. Looks like a P238 Hume pocket holster sold for $20 the other day, if it's similar in quality to mine, that was a good deal.

Looks like this:
