    OWB Hi-Ride Holsters for Snubbies...?

    Looking for holster makers that offer (non-thumb snap) hi-ride OWB rigs for revolvers. I know the term "hi-ride" is subjective, so I'm specifically looking for holsters that carry the revolver's cylinder above the belt line with a forward cant.

    I've seen the models offered by Tagua and Safariland and they're nice. I just want to compare all the "apples to apples" before I take the big bite.

    If you carry a hi-ride rig, please don't hesitate to post a few photos of your carry piece and the holster.

    THANKS for any recommendations.

    Try Alabama Holsters; I read a post specifically mentioning "high ride" as an asset:

    Thanks CPO.

    I checked the site and couldn't find any hi-ride models. Also, looks like they specialize in kydex rigs.

    I'm an old school,-old goat, kinda guy so I'm gonna stick to leather made holsters.

    Nonetheless, I appreciate the info..!!

    I just received a CQQR from Skip Ritchie (old Alessi CQC/S). It's a snap on/off rig for my Colt Cobra and the cylinder fits right over the belt which is what I prefer. Lightning Arms Sports carries them and has pics of one for a "J" frame and a Cobra. Not sure what size your wheel gun is but these are fantastic for a snubbie.

    Sounds good, torrejon. Thanks.

    I'm reading a lot of positive things about Ritchie's craftsmanship, products and his customer service.

    Do you have a photo of your set-up that you can post..?

    That's a great holster rig. TT Gunleather made an Alligator rig for my 709 that resembles it.

    But I wouldn't categorize that Ritchie holster as a hi-ride model. Note how the cylinder is positioned on the belt line, as opposed to above the belt line.

    Still an awesome looking Holster.! THANKS for posting.

    The Combat Master by Galco doesn't put the cylinder totally above the beltline, but about 3/4 above. It does have a forward cant.

    If you go to the link, click on the small picture to the right of the "body clock" and it'll show a snubby:

    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    Maybe not exactly what you're looking for, but it does hold it pretty high. Sorry, no pics because I lost my camera.

    I've seen a high-ride (don't remember where) that had the cylinder totally above the belt line, but I think it was a straight drop instead of a forward cant.

    Hello, Grady.

    Thanks for the link. That's pretty close to the type of rig I seek. I'll go ahead and upload the photo.

    btw, good seeing you on the boards..!!

    +1 - I do not have the High Slide but rather the regular slide for my PPS....fantastic holster, great retention, well made and finished AND the prices are great, really fair.

    Best holster for the money.

    When I travel to see my brother he has a S&W 642 that I carry so I don't have to fly with my gun. I stoke it with Corbon DPX and feel adequately protected.

    I have a similar gun at my place for times when he comes to visit.

    One of the things I pack for it is a Don Hume JIT. I love it for the S&W J Frame. I think I paid less than $20 for it.

    Great holster.

    Good luck in your search.
