A Real Bargain Pistol Holster

I did some horse trading the other day and ended up with a Ruger P345 pistol in .45 acp. I wanted something with power to carry and not have to worry about scratching it up like I do when I carry my Kimber or Colt. I am always in and out of places that I seem to scratch up guns in a holster on my belt. I needed to find a holster and was having problems finding one that would fit the P345. A member of one of the shooting forums I visit suggested that I go to Wal-Mart and look at the Crosman Airsoft Pistol holster. I was kind of reluctant to take him serious but next time I was in Wally World I walked back to the Airsoft section in sporting goods and here was this holster for $6.99. I could not believe my eyes. It was a quality Cordura nylon holster with straps and holder for a spare magazine for only $6.99. I bought it and took it home. It will fit a lot of pistols as the retaining strap is adjustable. A fully loaded magazine fits in the carrier and it rides high on the belt. I am always looking for a bargain and thought you might be also.

Here is what Crosman has to say about the holster. Have fun in the Outdoors and stay safe. Wild Ed

I agree with you on this holster. I bought one for my ruger sr-9 and it fit great. My 22 yr. old son has since glommed on to the pistol and the holster! Btw where is the park in your later post? I live in KS, but my daughter is a nurse in Houston, and I plan on wintering down there next yr I'd like to visit the park. My e-mail is
