I'm just starting my conceal carry holster search for my C9 and looking in Midway catalog [url](http://www.midwayusa.com)[/url] I found a Gunmate inside-the-pants holster which is ambidextrous. I thought that would be handy since I want to try both side carry (RH) and small of back which would require LH.

I haven't seen anyone else mention this holster and wonder if the 4" listed as being for medium semi-auto pistols would be the right size.

Also, has anyone tried this and recommend or not recommend giving it a try. (for all of $6.99)

Enjoying the forum. Thanks for any input.

Welcome DanO.... As far as the holster goes..... :dunno:
But if it's only 6.99 it couldn't hurt to try it out and let us all know if it works or not?

Thanks Ape.That's kinda what I figured. Just wondering if anyone had already tried one. Also, been searching since posting and found a Don Hume JIT Slide Holster, J942100R that is supposed to fit the C9.

So many holsters, so little cash. ;)

Hello I'm a newborn to the hi point world, seeing as of this post I have owned min for roughly 3 hours, and have yet to get any range time with it. Well typically I only carry a Springfield GI, but hve thought about taking my first step into the world of polymer. Any suggestions for carry and how to get a good holster

Welcome Clayton! :thumb:

As to how to carry your HP and what holster to use....... It's somewhat of a personal choice really?
Some (if not most) people who carry their HP's do so OWB (Outside the Waist Band). But some have done so IWB ("I"nside the waist band).
And then you get into the realm of Holsters and you have as many choices as you might possibly ever imagine. :? Many people wind up having boxes full of holster's as time goes on. Not that all of the holster's in their boxes didn't work, but more like they find different types that suit different needs.

I would suggest trying out sometjhing inexpensive like Uncle Mike's brand to start out with. 10 or 20 bucks gets you a good solid holster IMO. ;)

A little more money, but SO worth it. :yes2:

Well the C9 isnt mine its my sisters. I'm more of a colt man loving the 1911. In fact the C9 marks my very first step into poly guns. The reason for my holstequestion is because I wouldthink that the C9 would be very comfortable to wear.

Well, as for the Gunmate size #6, it's too small. C9 fit in up to the trigger guard. Seems the C9 is considered a large frame semi. I assumed "compact" wouldn't be more than a medium frame. Yeah, yeah, I know the old saying about assuming. ;)

Anyway, ended up getting an Uncle Mikes IWB #15, LH, so I can carry in the small of my back. nice and soft. Outside is nice and soft and pretty comfortable standing/walking. Not so much in bench seat of my S-10. More bearable in captain's chair of E-150 van.

Easy draw and re-holster as well as on/off of waistband/belt. Between this and the "fanny pack" that came with the gun, I think I'll get by for all sitiuations. Maybe I'll save up for one of those Kholsters, though.

I have a Hi-Point c9 9mm and bought a Fobus holster that was supposed to fit a .380 and a c9 but it didnt. So instead of sending it back I sanded the inside a little and now it fits perfect! Might I add its my daily carry and it is very comfortable! Hopefully this info helps someone wanting a Fobus holster for their c9 9mm. Does anyone know if Galco holster fits a c9 good?

No new posts here for awhile, but thought I'd throw in another of my 2 cents. I have 2 holsters now that I use regularly for my C9. The paddle holster made by Galco and sold through HP and a Kholster.

The paddle holster is great for winter time when you're not going to be removing your jacket or have an over-sized, untucked shirt. I use it daily also for my drive into Cleveland for work. Easy-on, easy-off while sitting in truck. When I get to work, I remove the pistol and store in a lockbox and the holster goes up over the visor.

The Kholster I got on sale. He has those periodically and you can sign up for email notification when he has them. I got mine when there was a 10% off sale. Just at Thanksgiving time he had a $35 sale on all holsters. If I 'd just waited a couple of months. :groan:

If you don't want to wait for a sale, here is my Rebate Code: 09-5683. Just enter that in the "special instructions" field during checkout and get a 10% discount. He has no limit on how many times or how many people use any given code. His holsters are all LIFETIME warrantied for material and craftsmanship. Even if you trim the leather to your liking. This holster is VERY comfortable to wear. VERY easy to conceal. AND it's much cheaper than the Crossbreed Supertuck, which doesn't come for C9 last time I checked anyway!

That is all. Happy cc'ing. Stay safe.

Not dumb at all! You can wear a cross draw with any gun if you'd like.
The best way to do this with a HP gun is to find a right handed kydex holster that's adjustable for cant. Then simply adjust the cant of the holster to the angle that feels best for you and put it where you like. ;)
