I just ordered a V# Stingray kydex holster from Clinger. Let you know how it works out. I've always been a leather holster guy but thought I'd give this a try. They have a 2 week return policy, a lifetime warranty, and it was on sale for $39.00 plus shipping. Suppose to be super comfortable. We'll see.

I ordered my V3 Stingray Sunday the 23rd. I received it today (UPS) at around 1:00PM. Not bad at all. So, of course I was quick to put it on for a try. The retention was a little tight so I backed it off a little. Put the holster on and it was comfortable as I wore it the rest of the after noon. Near supper time I was checking it out and noticed that when I holstered the pistol with the safety on as I always did, it was ok. But, when I would draw the pistol out, the safety was off. I tried this a few times and everytime safety on going in, safety off coming out. This to me is not right and is a safety hazzard. If I had not noticed this someone could have gotten shot.  I have for many years carried one in the chamber with safety on.

I have emailed Clinger this evening and await and answer.


Will let you know more later.

Thanks for the update , I also carry loaded with safety on . No need to have a holster taking the safety off unless your in a quick drawl competition .I was thinking about ordering one for p30sk but they only offered one that worked without manual safety . Maybe this is the reason  Huh. Hopefully they can make it work for you . Keep us updated what you come up with .

I have since contacted Clinger Customer Service and they have contacted me twice on Saturday. They requested I take a picture of the gun and holster side-by-side and one of just the gun, which I did and also took close-ups of the gun showing detail of the safety  in both on and off positions. The problem seems to be when the mold was cast it was cast with the safety off, so when you holster your gun (mine is a Ruger SR9) with the safety on and then you draw the gun out, it flips the safety off. If you were not aware of it, you could accidently shoot someone or something. The last email I received this afternoon (Saturday) from them they said they were referring my case to the head holster design engineers on Monday and would keep me informed. So we'll see what happens next week. And, no I am not using this holster until this is resolved. I will have to rely on my 7-8 year old leather holster a while longer.

For the little while I wore the Clinger V3 Stingray, I really liked it. It, as they say, does an excellent job of concealment and can be used by lefties and righties both by switching the belt clip on the holster (extra hardware provided with holster). I hop they get this straighten out, because I really like the holster.

Well it sounds like they are willing to work with you . Maybe they need to remake the mold and start over.

Sounds like it to me. I suggest they cut out the area on each side of the holster that make contact with the safety.

Emailed C/S at Clinger today asking if they want me to return my V3 Stingray Holster for a refund, as it was no good to me as it is.
Waiting for response from C/S (Customer Service). We'll see what goes tomorrow.

Well, I got a follow up email from Clinger a few minutes ago. They thanked me for bringing the defect in the V3 Stingray Holster for the Ruger SR9, to their attention and said they are modifying the design and will send me a new Clinger V3 Stingray Holster for free.
 These guys and gals at Clinger have been great to work with. Nothing but courteous all the way. This is Great Customer Service,
The kind we all hope to get everywhere.

Let you know when new holster arrives gang.

Yes, and I got my redesigned/improved V3 Stingray Holster today. Popped the trusty old SR9 in and out of it about a dozen times and no problem. Works like a champ. What a great bunch of people they have at Clinger. I know they are a small company, but great customer service is what make a company grow. Thanks to everybody there.

Do I think Clinger is a great company to do business with? And, do I recommend them to others? @@@@ RIGHT!

Price when I ordered mine was on sale for $39. plus $7. shipping=$46. total. Not a bad price for a Kydex holster.
