Holsters are hard. Seriously. Those of us who carry regularly usually accumulate a small dragon’s horde worth of holsters, even if they are quality offerings. In many cases it’s difficult to find holsters, especially with other than main stream models. Everything is Glock-centric, understandably but it doesn’t help if you enjoyed a different firearm model.
