    Maybe, but i dont think i would feel itwas secure enough, some models have belt holes in the leather for just such an option.

    Well mine....the weapons fits really snug..you can turn it upside down and shake it as hard as you want to and the weapon does not slide out..(loaded)..so I thought it might work in winter for owb carry....need to give this a try I guess and see what happens....I was just thinking someone probably has already done this and was curious as to what they thought.

    O i have no doubt the weapon retention is good, i was thinking along the lines secure to your belt with just the clips holding it secure, or am i missing something?

    Well yes, I have no problem with the feel or looks...for winter time carry OWB no one will see it anyway..be under a coat or sweater or vest.....just thinking I could get double duty out of it rather than buying ANOTHER holster......LOL

    I got this holster recently:
    new_tuckable_holster_3__22335.1334352730.1280.1280.jpg
    Deep Concealment Tuckable Holster - 7.62 Precision

    It is all leather, IWB and tuckable. However, the same part that makes it tuckable makes it able to be worn OWB (the tuckable part just goes up behind the belt with the loops grabbing the belt as normal. I have worn it OWB around the house to try it out like that and it moved a little too much for my taste. Then again, I still need to enhance my collection with a better gun belt.

    The pistol will not be held close to your body as it is when worn IWB and will print badly. It will be hard to draw because of the holster tension and being loose from the body.

    Have you considered just leaving the clips as they are and running your belt through them and positioning the holster between your belt and your pants?

    Agree, this is the only way it might work. Same retention as the holster was designed. Anything else is compromising the integrity of the system.

    Why? Are you trying to be the only CCer without a closet full of failed holsters? Come on we need to support the holster companies with our purchase of holster after holster until we are happy, if possible.
