Picking the Right Sig P938 Holster
If you've decided that you need a Sig Sauer Sig P938 Holster. Then you've come to the right place. Yes of course, you're going to holster your P938 on it, but ask yourselves a couple of questions: do you intend to carry your Sig Sauer everyday? Do you need an inside of wristband (IWB) or outdoors of wristband (O WB) holster for your Sig P938?
If you're carrying your Sig P938 everyday and it's a small or medium weapon, then the answer is easy - inside of a waist band. The reason I say this, is because inside of a waistband you have a little more room to work with and conceal your Sig Sauer. The great thing about inside waistbands, is that they're made so that they don't interfere with your shooting mechanics. In other words, if your hand is so light that it doesn't feel like it's in a vise while you're taking a shot - your holster will fit snugly inside of it.
Most of the larger Sig Sauer Sig pistol models offer some form of a retention program or thumb break. If you're not familiar with what a thumb break is, it basically means that you break your finger at the bottom of the magazine well in the front of the trigger. This breaks the "tac" that is held in place by the thumb and helps to free up your hands to do other things. There are two advantages to using thumb break models, one is that they are easier to get into and out of. Another advantage is that they make your pistol feel more natural and less like it was "stored" and ready for use.
These are two major differences between the Sig P938 holsters and the Sig Sauer Sig P933 and Sig P935 Sig P939 models. There are some small differences, mostly cosmetic, that are worth noting. For example, some Sig pistols have beveled edges on slides, and these can play a role in how comfortable they are to carry. Some holsters, however, do not have beveled slides.
The 9 38 has a very slim profile, probably about three times as slim as a typical Sig Sauer. This allows for the holster to be worn completely beneath your clothes, and it also enables it to sit low on your back. This means that you'll have much more leg and hip movement than you would have with a typical Sig Sauer. There are several different options for both the front and rear attachment points on the Sig P9 38 including an internal frame attachment (not available on all models) and an external folding box model.
There are some differences between the inside and outside model of the Sig P938 holster. The inside model includes a compartment for a small handgun, which is held in place using a spring clip that attaches to the back of the holster. The outside model is just like the typical pocket or ankle holster, with the only difference being that the handgun is held in place using a kydex sheet. Most people prefer the inside model, since it allows them to access their handgun more easily without having to fumble around with a bunch of extra material in their pockets.
As far as size goes, the Sig P938 is just about the smallest pocket gun holster that I have ever handled. It's also about half the weight of a typical small model pocket pistol. Most people won't notice the difference at first, because they won't be carrying the gun very long, but over the course of several outings with the pistol the holster will quickly begin to become uncomfortable. That's why I recommend getting a comfortable holster. When you're shopping for your Sig P9 38, make sure that you focus on comfort over size. This is the best way to ensure that you get the most out of your new pistol.
Finally, I'd like to address one area of leather holsters that many people seem to be confused about: whether to purchase a paddle-style retention strap or a coil spring unit. Both types work fine, so I generally recommend a coil spring for general use, but feel free to experiment with the paddle style if you prefer. In general, the paddle style offers a better fit because it is more like a traditional holster, while the coil spring offers a more secure fit because of the extra material it provides. Ultimately, however, the decision comes down to preference.
