CHOOSING HOLSTERS FOR CARRY VERSATILITY
There is no problem finding holsters for this new Ruger. My preferred carry method is strong-side, inside-the-waistband. But with any pistol I choose for everyday carry, I like to have options on how I carry it, so that usually means selecting more than one holster.
First, I reached out to Galco Gun Leather and chose their Corvus model, an open-topped Kydex holster with carbon fiber finish. It's a workhorse of a holster: rugged, lightweight, comfortable, easy on the gun's finish. The great thing about the Corvus is that it's convertible. It comes with the hardware to convert it from a conventional belt holster to an inside-the-waistband rig.
I also opted for Galco's Summer Comfort holster. This is a finely crafted leather IWB holster. It's fitted with two belt loops with snaps that allow you to put on or remove the holster easily without getting half undressed to do it. It has a reinforced lip that provides for easy reholstering, always a plus.
To complete my lineup of carry options for the Ruger, I tried one from a different maker: Sticky Holsters. This is holster simplicity in the extreme. It has no loops or clips. It relies on its soft, no-slip fabric to hold it in place. You merely tuck it inside your waistband, cinch your belt over it and that's it.
At first, I was concerned about the holster staying in place with really loose-fitting pants, but there was no problem with the holster staying put with the clothes I wore as I tested it. A big benefit with a Sticky Holster is that it can be worn anywhere around the waistline— strong-side, cross-draw, appendix, small-of-the-back. A Sticky Holster also makes a great pocket holster. And while this Ruger is a bit large for this mode of carry, it isn't out of the question with pants I own with deep pockets.
