Micro holster review

Tried to send some pix to Tourist (hi Chico!) in a PM but it wouldn't let me... So, instead of writing a great long review -- let me just strongly urge that if you need to carry a Micro (or other?), check this out!

So, here's my short review with pix of the amazing, wonderful, comfortable, secure-feeling (and acting), easy to draw and reholster, not horrifically expensive holster!

With the warning that I'm a leftie -- so it's all backwards... I am DELIGHTED with this! They make a kydex shell for 'real' guns (it's my Micro, which they don't make a kydex one for -- so it's the 'older' style elasticated one). I'll probably be buying a kydex one (if they make it) for my 9mm S&W.

I almost never wear a belt ({sigh} and you'll see why in the pix...) so I needed a holster that did not 'require' one. (Yes, I know the first three show the lie about the belt -- but I don't usually (okay, never) WEAR those pants! Was just trying out the holster. The other two pants have no belt.)

Hey, 'Tao, thanks for the info.

Since this holster fits your Micro, then I'll *assume* it would also work on a SIG P238, which my wife and I also happen to own.

As I told 'Tao in a PM, my wife is unhappy with her current methods of carry, so she just shoves a SW 642 into a policewoman's purse. She'd like something comfortable to carry on her belt. She's also a leftie.

More pix. This is a really good way to 'hide' a printing. You'll notice the extended mag fits. I apparently did not take a pic of the back -- it's smoooooooth suede -- VERY comfortable, and helps hold the holster 'still.'

A couple months ago, I had a PROBLEM in finding this FOR the Micro -- which the Nates have now fixed. To enter their store, you need to ID your gun model - but they did not LIST the Micro! (I emailed them, and they told me which to get.) Now, the Micro is listed! YAY! Good on them!

Hey cool! They fixed the site!!

You'll notice with a solid color shirt, this prints pretty clearly. But I'd also be carrying a purse (as above). (Sorry for the filthy mirror!) Patterned shirt? Not-so-much. Sorry too, the last one is fuzzy, but the gun is quite grab-able.

Chico, they make the Kydex one for the P238:

Nice touch with the "red" sports bra and camo purse! Love it!

Great report on the holster my friend.

Happy to help! I was very pleased with their quick response to my email and their quick shipping. (Oh! and their quick response to my complaint about not being able to FIND the Micro on their site!) I tend to over-research (although I deny it's "over" ) everything, and was pleased by everything I found about the Nates.

LOL, I'm a little OCD, myself. For me it's not research, which I consider a virtue, it's ruminating.

When you have my mouth you run the risk of making a lot of enemies. Sometimes I do not get (or understand) a lot of social cues. By the time I realize I've offended someone, the deed is long over, and I over-think the entire situation.

This is why I like to read the exchanges between you and Richard. Differing points of view discussed in depth in poignant, interesting to read styles. And for a guy like me who chased girls before college exams instead of cramming, the idea of studying never stuck.

I'm sure that you vetted this holster five times more thoroughly than I would have ever dreamed.
