I'd look into a retention holster. No offense, but that weapon is begging to be grabbed.

i have and they dont make one that fits the p238. I can have one custom made which costs 150$ or so. Im actually gonna have my fiancee make one out of leather and put a strap on it for my gun.

Personally I wouldn't open carry without a retention holster. How stupid would it be to have your gun snatched and ran off with, or worse used against you? If I open carry, which is very seldom,, out in the woods or at the range,,, then I still carry at 1oclock with a retention holster.. better to conceal, in my opinion.

I can understand that. Everything gun related is overpriced. I wish I had the money to just buy everything I need at once. Just like many here I started with a nylon uncle mikes. Worked fine just no retention. I would just appendix carry to insure if someone went for my pistol they would have to get it right in front of me. Hell to tell the truth I got so used to it I still appendix carry while concealing.more times than not with no holster at all,, just a good belt..
No worries, Just get what you need when you can,, until then use caution and common sense.

I try to i avoid specific places that have very tight spaces to avoid any risks. When i open carry most of the time im walking down to a gas station or to some kind of store at night or im just walking for no real reason. Im constantly scanning the area and paying attention to my surroundings i try to pay very close attention to my surrounds and have a good situational awareness. Ill get a rention holster once i can and by then ill be ccing. I have a couple methods with the holster i have for that as well. the 3 o clock and 2 0 clock positions and the 4 o clock IWB position. and of course theres the 3 0 clock OWB position with a coat covering the gun. Im experimenting with them to see which is the most comfortable and easiest to conceal
