Does any other Left handed Shooters have a hard time finding left handed holsters at a reasonable price, I have been trying to find a holster for my Ruger P95, I was carrying a 1911 clone and had a Fobus paddle type...I got spoiled now I am looking for a paddle holster for my Ruger P95, I liked the ease of removing the holster when I came in the house and then slipping it back on when I went out.

Got to agree. It's got to be tough to stock a wide range of leathers(plastics) from a dealer's point of view, especially what I've got to believe to be us low volume lefties. I tend to just order them to my specific needs. I have reboned a few with varying success but at this point pretty much let the experts at it.

Regards,
Turch

Fobus catalogs a left-handed paddle holster for the Ruger P-series. If you were happy with the other one, you can just stay with them. FIST also has a wide selection of left-handed holsters. :)

I am in the "wrong handed" monority, also.
www.fobus.com
www.ebay.com
These are the 2 locations I use. I do not knoow about Fobus but e-bay has worked for me.
When you go on to e-bay you need to know:
[1] What the retail price of any item is.
[2] What amount you are willing to pay for the item.

I think Galco (http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterG3.asp?ProductID=2281&GunID=85) makes a bunch of stuff for lefties. Drop the list down at the top of the page.

JR47, I cant seem to find a left handed model from Fobus, If I can find one I would buy it for my P95 I love the one I had for my 1911.

John Bianchi was left handed himself and when he ran his own company would make the full line for both left and right hands - I've been told often left handed came first. Today of course it's a different company.

I don't know anybody today who offers a full mass produced line both left and right handed and for the custom makers dies and patterns are a real expense.

I often get better results from sending a double postcard snail mail to a vendor than I do from e-mail although it may take a while. Pays to make the NRA annual meetings and talk to the exhibitors too.

We are correct handed and everyone else is wrong handed. ;)
