New to CC, gonna schedule the TX class in the next few weeks. Right now, all I do is tuck my 9UC in the back of my pants in the backyard, at about 5 o'clock, magazine up, canted fwd. It's comfortable there. I'm wondering how stable FIST holsters are, with the mounting of the hooks/straps. They do it with a Kydex strip that attaches to the bottom of the holster. I'd like the holster to be tuck-able, preferably with only one attach point, for easy on/off. Straight drop isn't an option for me; the 9UC needs to be canted. Its gonna be either one of theirs, or a Crossbreed QwikClip, unless I hear some serious negative feedback from y'all. Any feedback/recommendations at all is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Bersa Chat markmac56. Only negative feedback I can give you is why does anyone carry IWB? :smile: Seriously, no personal experience with either brand, since I carry OWB, but I've read a lot of good things about the Crossbreed Super Tuck in regard to comfort & concealability & it is adjustable to get the best fit & comfort. Also, not familiar with the FIST holster you refer to, but the 9UC is approaching the weight where a two-clip system is preferred because it distributes the weight across a wider area of your belt. They point out that a one-clip holster allows it to sag & cant outward away fom your body. I'd also recommend a good 1-1/2" Double-Layered belt. Someone will be along to give you better advice, maybe more than you bargained for. :laughing:

P.S. Check out the holsters on Condors Flight. Until August 31 they are giving all Bersa Chat members a 20% discount (normally only 10%) with the promotion code: August20.

Also, if a custom holster is to your liking, most everyone here would buy nothing but a UBG Holster.
