Newbie Request for PSP holster recommendations - 04/30/10 04:28 PM

I have searched the topics and have some concept of what I need but still want to bring up to the group for comments.

I have a CDNN purchased silver-slide P7 PSP trade-in with serial number 5038. I'm a lefty looking for a inside the waist band (IWB)holster (9-11). I would like to use for daily carry and work in an environment where a sports coat is normal dress. I'm 5'11" 170lbs and would like a leather holster for my P7 PSP. I recognize the names of del Fatt & Rosen but don't want to wait 'till retirement to start. Also, I realize that holster collections seem to be the norm and I don't want to start this as I also have a Rohrbaugh R9s and don't want to unnecessarily feed an addiction. I also like exotic leathers and performance materials.

So there, I've opened myself up for all your suggestions and comments and will gladly accept them all!

Thanks to P7 Enigma for putting me on to this informative yet eclectic site!

Milt Sparks VMII
or for that matter you can look around like TT gunleather and a few other ones that make a clone of the VMII...

Check with Mark of Garritys Gunleather, www.garritysgunleather@cox.net At one time he had a left handed IWB rig for a P7 he was trying to sell. Not sure if he sold it or not but it's worth a try as he makes awesome holsters.

Thanks for the comments, I'm still on the hunt as Garritys IWB rig was for a P7M8 not PSP.

I love mine. The metal insert to keep it open for 1-handed re-holstering is awesome.

I'm also a leftie. It's pretty tough finding used or "in stock" left handed P7psp holsters. Moreover, not all of the custom holster makers have a P7psp mold. Apparently High Noon holsters recently acquired a mold so you can look at their holsters. You might want to try www.ubgholsters.com . I ordered a Striker holster from UBG because I wanted to try the double clips in lieu of the loops. The Striker holster works quite well. UBG's prices and turn around time aren't bad.

If you are interested in OWB holsters I did find an "in stock" left handed holster that works for the P7psp.

Unless you thread your belt the opposite of right handers, threading an OWB holster can take a left hander longer due to the holster being closer to the buckle instead of the tail. Good luck with your search and enjoy your new P7.

I would like to know how you like your Rohrbaugh. Can you hit anything with it? Is the recoil a problem? I'll bet you find the P7 much easier and more accurate to shoot.

I've added this paragraph after playing around with my different P7 holsters this weekend. I'm sure not everyone will agree, but I think there isn't a whole lot of concealability difference between the OWB holsters and IWB holsters when it comes to the P7. The front end of the gun is so short there just isn't that much to hide in your pants (unless you go the Thunderware/Smart Carry route). The trick with this gun is to wear a good belt that keeps the grip tight to the body. The gun is so grip heavy that it wants to flop outward without a strong belt. Some will say the IWB helps to keep it tight to the body, but I think a good belt and OWB holster will do the same. Really the hardest area to conceal with the P7 is its tang.

I've got articles in the June 2010 Combat Handguns and the new Guns and Ammo Surefire Combat Tactics that specifically deal with P7 leather and holster selection.

While I have stuff from Bulman, Sparks, Del Fatti, etc...I got much of it before the PSP import demand started. Currently, Tim Thurner at TT Gunleather is building the leather for my PSP's and I am VERY happy with his work and the wait times are in months and not years.

Leftee,

Thanks for the holster tips and insights on being a portsider.

Regarding the Rohrbaugh R9. It's a different beast than the P7 PSP. The Rohrbaugh is a small, solid, beautifully constructed weapon for CCW with considerable firepower. Accuracy at 21ft is typically groups of <6-8 inches. The recoil is manageable but significant. The P7 by comparison is large, solid, well constructed shooting machine with (in my opinion) unmatched size to shot group with unrivaled time to shoot. The capacity for both is small considering today's monster mags, however, the Rohrbaugh is with me every day (suit included) and I bet my life on its capability. The P7 is a delight to shoot but does get hot after 30-40 shots fired quickly but it is my home and bumping around gun. Both excellent firearms but sufficiently different to be uniquely useful.

Thanks for the tip on the article which I'm trying to locate today. Also, I'm looking at the TT Gunleather site and appreciate the recommendation.

Ucitykid, thanks for the insight on the Rohrbaugh. I sure wish I could try one out. When I first started to get into concealed carry I found myself looking for small weapons. As time has gone on I find myself going larger and larger due to enhanced manageability, accuracy, and firepower. I still carry my S&W 442 most often, but on the weekends I tend to go bigger and bigger, to the point that I just purchased a full size 1911. Some of this I blame on the P7. I now want to shoot all of my small guns as well as the P7, and frankly it just isn't happening.

I have used Kramer horsehide holsters for years and have always been happy with the quality. They are based out of Tacoma Washington and their prices are on the high side but again, the quality is top notch. I specifically use IWB configuration and works well.

I waited for my Milt Sparks about 6 1/2 months, and my VM2 was worth the wait. Very comfortable holster that fits tight, out of sight, hides under clothing well, and fits like a glove. You can't go wrong with a VM2!!

I followed Leftee's advice and got a Desantis Mini Slide for a Kahr 9 ... works great for P7

Even though I am not a Southpaw, I have been in the search for a new holster, and this thread has been of great help. The wait times and prices for Del Fatti and Sparks are both too outlandish for me right now (The last Del Fatti ISP4 I could find was going for $260, and I found a used VMII on ebay that finally sold for $250 - both well over MSRP). I had already checked with Kramer, and was on the verge of ordering with them, but I think I will be going with TT Gunleather instead.

Another those of you with M8s & M13s might consider is a Ken Null holster.

Anyone looking for an affordable, readily available, and decent quality holster for the P7 PSP should take a look at the Bare Asset clip on holster from High Noon. This is a "stocking item" with High Noon, as it fits a variety of popular guns, including the Glock 26 & 27 (among many others). I ordered mine for an HK 2000 SK I no longer own, but it fits my P7 quite well. Seems like it cost around $35 and arrived in 5-6 days.

Hey guys, just wanted to drop in and do some shameless self-promoting. Since first purchasing my P7 some years ago, I have dipped my toe into holster making. Here are a couple pics of a couple recent holster and double mag pouches I made for a customer last month...





I don't have a legit website up yet, but if you're interested in checking out more of my holsters take a look at my FB page at www.facebook.com/HoppCustomLeathers

Cheers,

I have re-posted the pictures of the High Noon Bare Asset holster mentioned above, since I unknowingly deleted them. Here they are again:

Milt Sparks VMII reasonable wait - 12 weeks - great product - While we are all waiting for Del Fatti to catch up
