I still use the OEM holster, and I've got a BestSkinsEver shield on my 8700c. I've never launched it with my hands, although one time I was lifting a couch and as we hoisted it up my forearm slid against the BB in its holster, shooting it out onto the hardwood floor. No damage at all though, and no scratches because of the shield. I had a great neoprene holster for my 7290, but I too have not been able to find another holster I like. My boss has this one
, but I can't bring myself to use something with a flap. It makes me think of velcro shoes.
