Hi all, nice little forum you got here. Anyway, I was just wondering what are the good holsters for the Walther P99's in .40 S&W? I just bought a nice all German gun with titanium finish and I would really like to use it as my carry gun. Any suggestions would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you.

I personally like Milt Sparks holsters. However if they don't have the one you want in stock, you may have to wait a while. I just talked to them a couple of weeks ago and they were running 8 weeks behind. The wait is worth it though!

I am sure all the above mentioned holsters are excellent ones especially the com-tac and premium leather ones.
Look at the Glocktalk board favorable comments on the Sidearmor line of Krydex holsters for the Glocks and 1911 et al.
The Sidearmor holster is loved by Glock, 1911 and Sig fans. It is extremely well crafted and thought out with many screw on options such at attachment method, cant angle, and other features. At this time the Sidearmor folks have just moved their shop but are designing and crafting one of their holsters to fit the P99 in .40 or 9MM. I personally use them for my Glock and 1911 and find them thinner, stronger, impervious to moisture and sucure snug fitting and as comfortable as possible for an in the waistband holster (IWB).
A group of thirty members of this board joined in a group purchase as an incentive to have Sidearmor design (blueprint)and make one of their IWB holsters for the P99. You can contact Sidearmor directly for a purchase if you wish.
Have patience at to their availability if you are interested.

A note on Fobus, John Farnam of http://www.defense-training.com/ has noted that several Fobus holsters have had problems with retaining the pistol TOO well. The pistol gets "locked" into the holster by the retaining nub, and it takes two people wrestling with it to get the pistol out. This is not a good thing. He has now started to discourage their use in all his courses. James Yeager of OPS also discourages use of Fobus holsters due to having several fail during courses.

Carry my P99 in an Alessi CQC/S. On the Fobus, its true. I have two different ones for tw different guns and it takes both hands to deholster. Not good.

I have a fobus for my 9mm P99 Titanium and not only is it tough to draw from the tight holster, it has been putting some wear on the finish of the gun. Retention sure is good on the holster, but the tight plastic on the titanium finish is a bad combo.

I also have a Hidden Impact from High Noon Holsters. It's a IWB holster with a clip that allows my shirt to be tucked in. It's nice, but it has no cant and personally, I would reccomend the 15 degree cant for better concealability if that's what you're trying to do.

I also really like my titanium and I applaud you at "finding" such a great deal since I paid $619 for mine some time ago. Enjoy! I know you will.

Regarding the Fobus holster :

I've got one for my 9mm P99 and indeed there's some minor holster wear in way of the retention area (slight horizontal markings on both sides of the front area of the trigger guard. No holster wear on the slide.

In order to draw the gun from the holster, a swift, vigorous and quick draw is needed (as stated in the manual). it takes some practice.

Wanted to remind everyone, if yoou are ordering a P99 holster, be sure you check to see if they have a fit for the 40S&W. They are different is the slide area.

I'm the old fashioned type and prefer leather for holsters.
Here's mine from High Noon and I find the quality to be excellent (it's lined to prevent wear).


I've also heard very good things about Rafters Leather (click on name for their website).

Cheers,
Jammer

For those using polymer or kydex, to avoid scratching the guns finish I spray the inside of the holster with silicon spray. It keeps the dirt particles from sticking to the inside of the plastic.

fobus holsters are a little tight sometimes. i always spray a little silicone spray inside mine and they work great thereafter. i prefer the fobus and have used them on my glocks for a long time. no probs.
