    Your just messing with us right? Everyone knows the best holster for that pistol is a Fobus.

    I can assure you he will not expand his coverage that far.

    This gun may work for your purpose but is it likely not going to be supported by most quality holster manufactures building direct fit (not universal) holsters.

    It doesn’t make good business sense, particularly for a small holster builder. His investment in a mold and all of the labor involved to develop that mold to produce an exact fit (along with purchasing a gun to final fit and test the holster) would require him to sell 12-15 holsters just to break even. You would be hard pressed to find 12-15 G2c owners in the nation that would spend $100 for a holster to fit $185 gun.

    The aftermarket support of the gun should be a factor when selecting a firearm for defensive use.

    Good luck with your search.

    I guess I'll have to go with a CrossBreed, Alien Gear, or Bullseye Holster then.

    Correct

    But they are all holsters I don’t find acceptable. Most good self-defense instructors will tell you to stay away from hybrid holster as well.

    I have little doubt I won’t change the minds of those that refuse to look with an open mind. They will only continue to justify their own selections.

    However, I feel there are those that see these threads who might be influenced by presenting information validated by the leaders in the self-defense training. This could prevent them from going down the path that most of us have (myself included) and wasting good money on crap that we end up replacing. Or worse get us injured or killed.

    I would certainly like to go back 40 years and start over with the knowledge I have gained in the last 5-10 years that I have gotten serious about it.

    It takes but a small amount of professional training to see what works and what is junk ,people still come up with ways to justify poor choices

    Everyone has an opinion and almost every opinion can be backed up with reasons why it's the ONLY one that matters. It's like facts. I can always come up with statistics to back up the "facts". Enuff said about that.
