So i bought a new ruger p95 the other day to carry for work (i am a patrol supervisor at a security company in austin) does anyone know if the fobus holster is any good. I am haveing a hard time finding one that will fit and I am currently useing a holster made for my ruger p85 but it is a hair bit to big for the p95
any advice or suggestions on a holster thats not going to break the bank would be helpful (remember i make 10.50 an hour i cant afford alot)

I use Fobus holsters for open carry most of the time. I am currently using one to conceal carry my Kel Tec P-11. They work for me,requires a hard directed pull to release from holster.

The Fobus holsters are a little bit flimsy for me. I like the thicker material in the uncle mike's and Galco brand of kydex holsters.

In addition, the Uncle Mike's and Galco brands are a piece of kydex that is folded over and then held together by two or more screws with rubber rings to provide tension. It's a very strong design.

The Fobus holsters are 3 pieces of thinner material and each is held to the other by metal rivets. The rivet pieces aren't as large as the screws used in the other brands, and I remember seeing a training/warning bulletin from a State Agency that came over NCIC to our department about the rivets tearing out of the holster when an officer was involved in a gun retention battle.

If it's something you are going to use for work, where everyone KNOWS you have a gun, and you carry it for work, get yourself something a little more duty orientied, like a good Safariland, or even a Gould & Goodrich. Check out Galls.com and look up "duty holsters" for some ideas.

You are looking for model number RU-97. Fits the P90, P97, and P95 along with a couple of Taurus models.

Just understand that Fobus is not Kydex.

I know its not kydex but i need something i can afford with bills to pay it took me a while to get the money for a p95
but then again i get an extra 13 bucks a week thanks to the president maybe i can save that and get a holster in a few months

I've been using a Fobus for my 1911 for several years now and like it very much. My buddy has a P90, he took awhile to get used to carrying in a Fobus, but likes it now.
