Looking for a concealment holster for a Beretta 96D Brigadier.

Yeah, it's a hefty piece, but it's also a duty piece, so...

Any ideas? I'd prefer an inside the waistband style, but am open to most possibilities.

Hey Destructo,
Fairly slim amount of info there my friend.
Do you want cheap, hi-dollar, suede, rough-out, lined/unlined, open-top, thumb break, fixed/multi position, clip-on, strap-on.......

I've only been able to find a couple for this particular pistol. One is a paddle style by Fobus and the other is more generic.

Therefore, I'm pretty open to any type.

Well then...
Go spend 10 minutes HERE (http://64.33.8.159) and consider that almost anything you see can be made for your Beretta.

I had the same problem last year trying to find a concealed holster for my then-new 96 Brig. Here's who has one specifically for this gun:

http://www.tacticalholsters.com/gcode.htm

I am pretty sure I bought directly from them, but Gunner's Alley carries this line, and based on my experience with them last week, they have all my business for stuff I cannot get quickly from my local gun store.

Here's my review, but with an important caveat: I almost never carry this gun concealed. I bout a SW99 .40 compact soon after and it is my daily carry piece. But I love the Brigadier. Just too big for me to carry every day, especially in the summer, and I like to keep things consistent in this department.

The holster is definately made for the Brig. It has a pretty large "tunnel" for the front site, although there is still a bit of interference from time to time that scrapes a minute amount of Kydex off. I suspect if I carried it regularly it would work itself in a bit.

Build quality is outstanding. Far superior to my Fobus paddle holster. It has the sweat/shirt guard. Retention is perfect. And it is a very comfotable carry. Its just the gun thats too big!

If I can figure out how to post a pic of here I will, with the gun in and out.

Good luck.

Destructo, Take a look at my "Cross-Breed IWB" I can make one specifically to fit your brigadier as I am about to aquire some new molds.

Just do a forum search for "Cross-Breed IWB" or you can find the original post in the For Sale threads.

There are some nice pics in the posts.

Thanks
