I purchased a micro 9 Nightfall recently and cannot find a holster that works. I want an OWB paddle holster preferably. Or a leather belt holster. I have purchased the Fobus Sig/Springfield/Kimber Micro Evolution Paddle Holster and 1) the paddle is too small to support the weight without a lot of unwanted movement. 2) the retention screw has to be removed completely just to get it to fit. 3) the front sights scrape very hard. I also purchased a fabric "Uncle Mike's" and the micro fits nicely but fabric is no match for leather so the belt slots have no rigidity so they fold in and the firearm ends up "hanging" out too far causing massive printing and the firearm flops around. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know Desantis makes a leather Micro 9 Mini Scabbard, one with the Kimber name on it and one without. Has anyone tried this holster? Thank you!

This is one I had made by TT Gunleather, I have hade it for several months now and really like the way it rides. I also like the double snaps so I don't have to unfasten my belt and undo it from the pant loops.

Does that particular holster have the leather on the backside to prevent the weapon from resting against your clothing or skin? Hard to tell from that particular picture but I do like the looks. Also, what size belt will it accommodate?

I have had good results from El Paso Saddlery on 4 holsters.
I like the Tom Three Persons design in plain russet leather with open toe and hammer thong.

Looks like you got the Hogue mag extension. Lovely investment for a solid grip. And I think it's around $8?

Yes, it has it. It can be made for 1 1/2" or 2" belts, you just need to specify what you want when ordering. They have a big selection on their website. I'll try to get another pic posted this evening of it without the gun in it.

I gave up trying to carry my EDC's via OWB rigs. It just doesn't work, they all print big-time. Once I realized this limitation and went with IWB rigs, problem solved.

For my 1911's, I carry in Milt Sparks Versa-Matic 2 rigs, but for my Micro 9, I went with Adams Leather Works and could not be happier now after two years of daily wear. This is their IWB Mod 2.



Total comfort, great retention, rides close to the body and does NOT print. The workmanship is tip-top, good lead time and a fair price. Can't do much better IMHO. :)

As John Bianchi once said "Good guns deserve good gun leather". (NOT Fruit of the Loom wannabee fabric "holsters".)

Here is a picture without the gun in it. Sorry it's sideways, my iPhone rotates the picture for some reason and I can't figure out how to stop it from happening.

I don't do iphone... But with my android you have to maintain a slight "landscape" tilt to get a landscape picture. If you hold the phone flat (screen parallel to the floor) you'll get the picture that you're ending up with now.

I got this one for my Micro 9: http://http://www.winthropholsters.com/pancake-outside-the-waistband-holsters/?yotpo_token=200b0b9ec373090f6d7422995b6ced1ff9d5dbe5&utm_source=yotpo&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=map and I like it a lot. I have the Wright Leather Works Predator for my heavier pistols, but for $49 the Winthrop is hard to beat. I'm a leather holster guy for nice pistols.
Thanks! I called them today sounds like that's an awesome owb holster. I'm planning on getting it in black.

I have several of their IWB holsters and they really are a quality holster for a very reasonable price.

Check out Azula holsters. I got their IWB for my M9 and it’s very well made and cost effective too. I am also going to get their pocket holster. know they make a paddle as well. And they make them in brown and black.
