Check the BB Gun aisle at Walmart. They sell a nylon holster for about $7.00 and it's even got a mag pouch on it. It fits my 1911, Ruger P95 and S&W 5906. I suspect nearly any mid to full size auto will fit nice.

No thanks, nylon doesn't retain a pistol very well.
They will do in a pinch, but leather or Horse hide has less bulk and works much better.
I tried a few cheaper Uncle Mikes they are in the bad Idea box.
However JPARIZ bring up a good point if you need something low cast and no other option it will work.

Nylon is ok. For cc I have found if you draw your pistol for whatever reason, getting it re-holstered can be a bear. I like my leather.

I try new stuff but always seem to go back to leather or Horse hide.
I do use an older Uncle mikes for my 6 inch 357 for hunting but it is strapped in and worn on the outside

I'm about ready to mold some ABS for proto-type holsters and sheaths. I had lined my rollaway box with .060" black virgin ABS while at GM Truck & Bus Mockup.

After I get my designs down, I'll use the kydex.

Once I got used to the kydex IWB it is better just for the fact the sweat doesn't penetrate through the holster onto the pistol.

I have way to many store bought holsters to even thinking about buying any more. Since I'm never satisfied, I bought a bunch of plastic, rivets, sex screws and leather

To attach the components like the belt loops, sex screws as also known as Chicago Post Screws.

Try CDNN with the Uncle Mikes kydex holsters that fit the pistol much better than nylon and hold it well.
Uncle Mikes Kydezx for $9.99 and with safety strap $12.99 for several different guns.
I bought them for my 1911, Glock, Beretta, Springfield XD and S&W M&P.
Cant beat the price and CDNN has great customer service.

I'm a believer after many different holsters, you spend good money on a pistol, than give it a good holster. Nylon works, but you get what you pay for. If you want nylon than look towards a Safariland, or Accumold, or a Serpa or Fobus. I like leather for CCW holsters, just like leather belts, but nylon is great for a duty or outdoor rig since it takes a beating real well and doesn't look or get as beat up as a leather does. It's not effected by moisture either. Sure you can treat leather belts and holsters, but there still not like synthetic. Tagua makes a nice holster for a good price for anyone looking for a good leather holster. For shtf too, you can get Bianchi M12's for a pretty good price if you look on Ebay and for old issue gear or surplus deals. Accumolds 7105's aren't that expensive either and are a great holster with a thumbstrap and a fast draw.

I have to say... Uncle Mike never let me down. I have a small one for my .40 and a big one for my .357. It takes the .22 as well.

I'd never call it high tech, high quality, or duty gear, but both holsters have served me very well. For the money you really can't complain.
