Hey All, I just got a gift from the big brown truck,,,a Blackhawk Serpa CQC Holster. The Holster is made for the Taurus 24/7 model but I heard it fits the PT809. I was able to get one for 28 bucks so I ordered it. It fits the gun excellent and carries it in a good position on the hip. The Holster came with the built in belt loops and the paddle attachment. It has a good bit of adjustability, but even though the packaging calls it a "concealment holster...i don't think so unless you are used to wearing heavy parkas year round. It is more like a duty holster. As I said it is made for the 24/7...it works excellent and fits the PT809 (probably all the 800 series) well. The only issue i see is the slide release on the 24/7 must not be on both sides of the weapon as there is a channel on the left side for that lever, but none on the right(when viewed from a shooters position inserting gun into holster.
All in all, I am happy with the holster, it will be a great range or open carry holster.

Thanks! I was just now trying to figure out how to spend my Academy gift card and need a holster for my PT809. Thanks.

I went with the Fobus paddle holster for the 24/7. Did a spot test in the parking lot and it fits perfectly.

i just received my serpa holster today. i went with the 24/7 OSS model as it is what the 809 was modeled after. it appears to be longer than the regular 24/7 holster as my muzzle does not reach the bottom of the holster, but clears the slide releases on both sides of the pistol. ill put a picture up for comparison tomorrow

The OSS has a 5" barrel, whereas the PT809 has a 4" barrel.

Otherwise, I hear that most 24/7 accessories work well for the PT809.

The specs on the oss and 809 state they are the same length overall so i went with that one. It appears that the regular 24/7 holster is a better fit than the oss model. Trial and error makes it easier for others on the forum to make a decision. I am even considering cutting the extra length off of this holster so it will quit bumping into things. Unless that will hurt it's structural integrity

Does anyone know if this will work for the 809 compact?
From what I can tell it would hold the pistol, but because the holster is longer for the additional barrel length it would defeat the idea of going with the C model as it would be longer than the gun itself.

Hey I'm new here, but I haven't got my intro posted yet. I had one all setup but the screwball 'puter froze and I lost it.

So for the matter at hand I'm glad to see the Blackhawk holster. I have just this past week bought a new PT809 and am in the holster market. I looked up the Blackhawk and really like the lock built into it. I see that it runs about half the price of a CrossBreed combat cut IWB. I like the looks of it too. I'll be getting one come the first of March. Any other ideas? Thanks to all.

BTW; I bought the 840 first. But hadn't used it. I took it back about the third day.

1. I have never had a decocker on a pistole before, so trying to get a bit used to it -unloaded, no clip- the slide was quite strong for me and would be impossible for my wife.
2. Decocking it using the thumb on the hammer method, which is what I am used to. That thing would pinch the #$#$%^& out of my thumb when the hammer settled back into the uncocked position.
3. I guess I had a brain blimp when I walked out of the store with it. I didn't notice that it wasn't ambidextrous.
I went back over to the store with it and explained those things to the guy's. Seeing as I hadn't used it yet, they showed me the PT809. I went down a bit in fire power, but the slide racked like a breeze. I have always liked the DA/SA. Fully ambidextrous. Two 17 round mags. 3 different backstraps. The PT809 hammer wont try to take a hunk of my thumb out when I decock it the old time way. I'll get used to using the decocker later. I hope I don't see many reasons to have to "decock", we don't live in or close to a metropolitan area, so any threats should be few. At least not until the soon to come collapse of this country. But that is a subject for a different place on the forum. Anyway with a DA their will be very few times one would need to have a hand gun in full clock.

I bought the IMI holster online last week, of course right after I ordered it I found this thread! Cost was about $50. I'll put up a review when I get it, which will take awhile since they send them from Israel. If I had known I could go to Academy and found a cheaper holster that would work I would have done so! So note to myself and other forum members - search this forum first before buying anything for your Taurus!
