So you have a Sig Sauer P938 and want a holster. Well, you’ve come to the right place. The first question to ask, though, is, “What kind of holster you want?” Here are a lot of different types:

  • IWB (Inside the Waistband) holsters attach to the belt or waistband by loops or a clip. Comfort and concealability are the primary concerns here.
  • Pocket Holsters: Priorities are concealability and a secure hold so the holster will not come out of your pocket when you draw the gun.
  • OWB (Outside the Waistband) holsters are primarily intended for concealed carry, and are worn under a jacket, sweatshirt, or an untucked shirt, though they can be used for open carry. Check the laws in your jurisdiction (don’t want to be arrested since open carry by a civilian, especially in an urban area, may constitute Brandishing a Firearm, which is a criminal offense).

So, here are our recommendations for the best holster for Sig P938 pistols.  Three are IWB holsters and 1 is OWB:

Sticky Holster MD-2

This holster is not specifically designed for the Sig Sauer P238, but it will accommodate it. Sticky holsters do not use belt loops or clips to hold their place; they are made of a unique adherent material, which keeps the holster in place in your pocket or on the inside of your waistband. The material will conform to your gun and your body over time. It is very simple and durable, ambidextrous, and very lightweight at only 3 oz. It has Level I retention, and is noted to hold the gun in place even with running, jumping, and other vigorous activity. It is comfortable, concealable, and inexpensive. One important note: when you remove your pants, the tension will be released and the gun and holster will fall- anticipate this if you are using a public restroom. No use having the best holster for P938 if your gun winds up in the toilet.

Talon Tuckable Sig Sauer P-938 IWB Holster

The Talon is a great option if you want a tough, leather IWB holster for your P938.  This holster is also extremely versatile.  If you’re left-handed, no problem:  get the left-handed option.  If you’re right-handed and your weapon has a Laser Crimson Trace, no problem there either:  there’s a Talon holster made for that too.  Want it brown?  No problem.  Want it black?  Well . . . you get the idea.  Although this is a tough holster, it’s extremely comfortable and leaves no printing to boot.  If you want a kick-butt US-made leather (from US-raised steer, no less) product, this just might be the best holster for Sig P938 handguns out there.  (Like all leather product, however, it will might need to be broken in.  Leave the gun in it for a few days, wrapped in wax paper or plastic, and the holster will conform to the gun better.)

Desantis Mini Scabbard Holster for SIG P938

The Desantis is an inexpensive but rugged black leather OWB holster which offers Level I retention, with a retention screw to adjust the level of tension to hold the gun in place. Even doing hard physical work all day, the gun doesn’t slip out of place. It attaches to a belt by loops. It is comfortable to wear, and presents minimal printing worn under a shirt. Like any leather product, it will need to be broken in for a few days, and may need some leather conditioner to make it water and sweat resistant.

Comp-Tac Max Holster

This is a Kydex IWB holster, with adjustable tension screws, for Level I retention. An Allen wrench is included. The holster fastens to your waistband with a metal belt clip, provides complete coverage of the trigger guard, and is comfortable and slim. It is best worn with at shirt rather than against the skin, as Kydex is a hard material and will be abrasive. This holster can be worn with or without a belt and it just looks cool, without being overly “Tacti-cool.” This is easily among the best holsters for Sig P938 handguns.

When choosing the best holster for P938, you’d need to consider some things:

Retention Level rating refers to the method which keeps the gun in the holster.

o Level I: Friction and gravity keep the gun in place in the holster. The gun should fit snugly, and not fall out when bending, leaning walking, running, or if you fall.

o Level II: A strap with a Velcro or snap secures the gun in the holster, also making it more difficult for someone to take your gun from you.

o Level III: an integral locking system, typically on Kydex or other hard plastic holsters, keeps the gun in place. One or more buttons have to be pushed, or the gun must be slightly twisted upon drawing to release it. This is the most secure, and is designed to keep someone from taking your gun from you, even if you are incapacitated.

Durability: Your holster should provide years of service, and be able to withstand rain, sweat, and rough handling

Comfort: It should be comfortable enough that you forget it’s there until you need it, and you won’t hesitate to carry your gun regardless of how you are dressed.

Price: it should be priced to match your budget, and return its value in efficient function and years of service.


A good holster is an integral part of your personal defense plan. It must be comfortable enough for EDC (Every Day Carry), unobtrusive and concealable as not to scare the straights/civilians, and it must hold your gun securely enough where it is not going to fall out on the ground from movement (can you think of a situation more awkward and embarrassing??). Choose your holster carefully, get used to wearing it, and practice drawing from it to develop muscle memory.

Stay Safe.
