    Posted this in accessories but got no response, can't believe no one uses these things...

    Need a holster for an STI GP6-C (9mm). Would be for occassional CC.

    Have found two that are made for this gun. Both by Blade-Tek. One is their belt holster (with Tek-lok) and the other is the Sting Ray Belt Holster (SRB).

    Anyone have any experience with either of these and any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Also open to suggestions for other holsters but so far these are the only two I have found made for the STI

    As long as they are not injection molded then you should be all right.

    I've got one of their holsters (Nano) for a subcompact Glock and its fantastic, comfortable, easy draw, quality made. As I said, only tried one but I'd buy another without hesitation

    I have several Blade-Tech holsters. The first one I purchased in 1997 and it's built like a tank. The newer ones are less robust than my oldest one but seem to hold up well.

    I am not a fan of the tech-lock. I don't like the idea of it and would not purchase a holster or magazine carrier with it.

    I am a fan of their IWB holsters. For me they fit well and allow me to comfortably carry full sized service pistols for 12+ hours a day without discomfort.

    I also second the comment stmcelroy made. I'd steer clear of ANY injection molded kydex holsters. They don't hold up well and you will be better off spending a few dollars more and get a quality holster.

    If you are open to leather you should try Kramer or A E Nelson. Both will work with you and built a holster for your STI.
