Default Opinions on Fobus

I'm looking for a pretty inexpensive holster for every day carry. Not because I'm cheap, but rather poor, but I still need something decent. I'm looking at a Fobus SG239 which on some sites specifically lists my gun (Bersa Mini 45 Firestorm Pro) as one that will fit. It's $29 delivered. Is it worth it? Thanks for any opinions.

I would say go for it. Ive owned plenty of different holsters and have never had an issue with Fobus.

I know a guy that just got an old faithful holster for 40 or so. It required some assembley on his part, but seemed pretty good afterwards. I've been thinking about trying one if those after seeing his. Worth looking into though, they are cheap compared to a lot of others.

For kydex I prefer Bladetech. In leather Don Hume makes some affordable holsters of good quality. Crossbreed are very comfortable but can be expensive and have a bit of turnaround time.

I've got a Fobus paddle holster for my Glock 21. It doesn't hold the gun as tightly against my body as other holsters I have so it would not be my first choice for CCW but its probably okay for open carry.

Well, for $23 delivered I am going to try out the Fobus. But I like the idea of a custom made one, tailored to my body and gun. We have a local guy that does that and came recommended by my daughters CCW class instructor. But for now, the Fobus.

I like the Fobus for cool weather carry ( in Michigan, that's a lot of the time ), under a jacket. It doesn't hurt that the same model SG21 that I bought for my Sig's also works with a Shield and a Nano. I find these paddle holsters quite comfortable, but not as concealable as IWB holsters. Easy to get on and off, though.

I just got the Fobus the other day and have been using it for two days. I generally wear a slightly oversized t-shirt and it is concealed just fine. Rides nice and high and is tucked against my side rather nicely.

And the paddle holster design allows you to wear it without a belt. I am trying to start a habit of walking at lunch with my wife and was putting on my sweat shorts with a tie waste. The Fobus worked well with that type waistband as well.

For $23 delivered, I think it was worth it, and now I want to keep the gun as my primary carry.
