I think Galco would be a better choice
Notice the stitching on the Desantis in the link, there is none around the moulding of the weapon. This means it is probably glued and it will seperate over time.

Good observation, I will email them and ask.

My old holster for my PP was a Desantis, and to be honest I wasn't too terribly pleased with it.

Thank you. On one of the forums there was a question whether or not it was held together, at all, with any glue. I will post this info. Thanks again.

I have one and like other posters, I'm not terribly impressed. I will say I love my Don Hume and have heard that a Milt Sparks is well worth the wait.

I went to my local gun shop and checked out both. I can honestly say that I like both of them. Both housed the P99 really well. The galco was a bit more expensive than the Desantis. It can go both ways and I am with DTQ. I want that speed scabbard. Does Galco offer something similar? (one that doesn't have a thumb break) I plan to use mine for competition.

Among the "mass produced" holsters, I too prefer Galco (or Don Hume), but I have a DeSantis paddle holster for my work SIGARMS P229 that belonged to a former co-worker who passed it on me after he left my agency. It's been in use for over five years, used in FLETC at least twice, and is still quite usable.

I received the Desantis speed scabbard Thursday. It has plenty of stitching around the outline of the pistol. It seems well made and fits the P99 very well. It has an adjustable screw for proper fitting for snugness.

It has dual loops for setting the angle you want. I wore it around the house last night and it was comfortable with the P99 in it.

I am happy with it. This will be my winter time carry rig. I will go back to my Keltec .380 in the summer.
