The 709 is a great gun in every way EXCEPT it eats holsters. I like non-leather holsters. I have had 3 holsters of varous types and they have all been eaten by my 709 when drawing the weapon. The slide lock-back catch sticks out a bit and is a sharp edge and the edge catches the material and snags until the holster is messed up (torn). I don't like leather in an IWB holster as they are hot on my skin. I bought an Uncle Mikes #12 IWB holster at Academy and it slide lock-back catch doesn't seem to snag so hopefully this will fix the problem. Having to duck tape your holster is kind of red neck even for a red neck. Anybody face this issue and if so what did you do?

I have a few nylon holsters for several of my pistols only for range use, where they sew the binding at the top I put a good amount of super glue where any part will catch it, this allows the part that snags to glide over that part. Hope this helps.

I honestly never thought about doing the glue thing... I am SURE it would work better to stiffen the affected area than duck tape... I am going to try it tomorrow on the ACE holster that was GREAT otherwise... the snagging was keeping me from drawing at all with that particular holster.

If you have the guts to do it,,,,,,,,,,,, A dremel with a carbide tip and then some fine wet/dry sandpaper to just knock the edge down a bit. Then refinish the metal. Otherwise the superglue is a good idea.

The thing to remember about cheap nylon holsters, is that they're CHEAP. Just how much are you practicing your draw anyway?

I carry using a Kholster but will be purchasing a UBG holster also..Nothing beats leather/kydex.
