I bought this to protect my Security 9 with Viridian Laser while it rides in my arm rest or when transporting to the range. I don't plan to use it for carry. There aren't too many holders made specifically for the Security 9 with the laser and I didn't want to spend a ton of money. I already have the sister version with the extra mag. pouch attached. Good value for the money but it depends on your specific application.
