The Ruger SR9c Sneaky Pete Holster has sewn belt clips which can accommodate a belt up to 1.75" inches wide. The holster is made of high quality soft leather, and when worn on the belt resembles a cell phone case. The advantage of this design is that it allows you to carry your Ruger concealed, but with full and easy access. Now it's possible to wear whatever you want, whenever you want to. Don't dress around your gun anymore.
The holster is made inside and out of glove-quality leather, and uses two magnets to stay closed. Each holster is designed for your specific firearm, and the opening is made in such a way that you cannot accidentally place your finger on the trigger during draw. The Kydex insert ensures that a smooth, silent draw occurs every time.
The use of double stitching and steel rivets guarantees that this holster will last for years to come. All available options are listed above, and the holster can be ordered either with the belt loop, or optional belt clip. We design every holster to be as small as possible and still fit your pistol.

I was looking for a concealed carry holster that actually worked for me, allowing me to carry in MANY different circumstances with any type of clothing. I have a Ruger SR9C with a double stack magazine. It makes the profile too wide to comfortably carry IWB. I tried an Old Faithful "tuckable" holster and it was VERY uncomfortable and VERY DIFFICULT to put on. I gave up on IWB holsters. I have an Israeli Fobus paddle holster that I REALLY love, but it DIDN'T allow me to conceal carry unless my shirt was pulled out or I was wearing a sweatshirt or coat. I came across the Sneak Pete holster while looking for other carry options.
I have a LOT of good things to say about the holster and the company and only a couple of minor negatives. I'm going to be rather wordy but will try to be comprehensive in my review.
Customer Service is prompt and thorough. I looked at their web site and found the holster that worked with my model, but noticed that it wouldn't work with the standard magazine because of the 'pinky extender'. I contacted customer support and spoke with a rep name Beth who was MORE than HELPFUL. She told me how to measure so that she could find one that worked with the SR9C with the 'pinky extender' magazine. She found a holster that would work and kept in constant contact. I eventually opted for the standard holster and 'removed' the pinky extender. I couldn't find a base plate for the 10-round magazine that didn't have the extension. The 17-round base didn't work.
Quality and styling: The holster lived up to its reputation. The overall construction is quite superior. The stitching is durable and even. The double belt hooks are sturdy and hold securely. The style is unassuming and can be worn with any clothing without drawing attention to itself. The exterior and interior leather are very high quality and finished very nicely. The interior is softer, helping to reduce wear on the gun's finish.
Fit: My Ruger was snug but not tight in the holster. It won't move around or fall out when sitting, yet it won't stick or be tight causing the draw to be slow or clumsy.
Draw: This was my chief concern given the 'enclosed' design of the holster. I was worried that I would not be able to draw the weapon smoothly or easily. My concern was unfounded. The magnetic buttons holding the flap closed are secure and don't create unnecessary resistance. It took me about ten minutes of practice to get the draw reasonably smooth.
When you draw from the holster, lead with your thumb to open the flap and run your fingers up the side until the contact the grip. Continue the draw and the weapon comes out cleanly. Also convenient is that I did not see a need for a two hand draw with my shirt tail out. When I drew the weapon as described, the flap move my shirt tail out of the way and it was a non issue.
Wear-ability: Carry concealed but in the open. It was strange to have the weapon in a concealed holster that was worn in the open. I did a 'test wear' for brief periods to see if it was noticed by others. So far, no one has even commented on it since it doesn't draw any unusual attention. Some people have reported issues with wear-ability when driving. I didn't have any discomfort. The seat belt wraps over the holster without any issues. Since the weapon is fully enclosed there is no 'cold steel' or weapon profile pressing in to my side. The design made it very comfortable to wear while driving.
There are only two very small issues that I have with the holster and they are so small that they are almost not issues.
Lead time: I ordered the holster and after a couple days of not hearing back I contacted customer support to inquire. Once again Beth was very communicative. She informed me that there would be a few days delay since the holsters are pretty much made when ordered but assured me that 'my business was important to Sneaky Pete Holsters'. The holster shipped two days later. The wait was worth it.
Variety: They have several different leather colors available. They also have a heavy-duty ballistic nylon holster for casual wear. I didn't order that one but I'd love to try it and provide feedback on it.
Size: It is larger that what you are accustomed to if you've never carried with this style of holster. But that is a natural result of the type of holster you are buying and it is NOT a showstopper.
Summary: If your experience is like mine, you'll be very happy with the holster. Draw is smooth with a little practice. Your weapon should fit nicely. The style and finish is high quality and my overall experience was great. The also have a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied. That remove an additional concern. I don't regret my purchase.
My order for Ruger SR9c was filled quickly. I failed to note the pinky extension would not fit. I returned the first holster and it was replaced either a larger Sig and it fit perfectly with the 16 shot magazine. Thanks to friendly helpful folks at Sneaky Peat
Wear it every day all day long . No one has asked about it. You do have to take the pinky rest off. When I did I popped off the base retainer and out popped the spring. Wrote Ruger because I couldn't find that part on Ruger web site. Ruger wrote back and is sending that part free of charge.
In the mean time I am using 2pennies to hold the spring in.
Absolutely love the holster glad I bought 3 2canvass and 1 leather for dress.
Received holster 2 day order! Absolutely wonderful I can finally tuck in my shirt tail while carrying.
Bought 3 2 nylon and one leather. I will order another leather because my wife will not share the leather.
Instructions say Ruger pinky finger doesn't fit. Well it doesn't. so I tried 17 red magizine and to my surprise it doesn't fit either! :0) go figure!
All kidding aside best concealed holster I ever seen. I am going one step further and purching a pin with medical alert emblem to attach to the holster so when someone actually see the holster they will automatically think it is a insulin needle and testing supplies.
If I get stopped by cop I can say if I get hit by a bus I want to draw the medical team attention to the holster and secure the weapon while I'm receiving treatment.
Would I recommend to a friend THOUSANDS times YES
I received my holster for my holster for my Ruger SR9. It is nice, but the only thing is I had to remove the pinky extender on my clip so that it fits in the holster. Other than that it's a great holster.
This is for the Ruger SR9c with Crimson Trace Laser. The holster is well made and fits the Ruger well. However, it does not work well with the Crimson Trace laser model CMR-201. The plastic guide in the holster catches on the back of the laser and requires pushing down on it to remove the gun. Sneaky Pete was willing to accept a return but I like the holster otherwise and plan to keep it.
Just what I expected. It blends in with your attire where it's not noticed or draws attention to it. I feel comfortable and at ease in public. Well made. Fits my SR9c perfect.
I have 3 Sneaky pete's, each one of them are top of the line construction. 5 star shipping, all around best concealment Holster out there.
SR9C Extended Pinky version is not wide enough for the 14 round magazine as I had hoped. It does do it's job well though. Great product.
