    My snub gets carried in a front pocket almost exclusively, in a Wild Bill's Concealment "Pocket Packer Premium." I also have a pancake belt holster from Simply Rugged - not truly a concealment holster, though.

    Use the search feature to find the "Ultimate Snubbie" thread... lots of info and opinions there.

    Have you considered OWB carry?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    The Pocket Packer I noted earlier has a snap-removable square flap that presents the appearance of a wallet in your pocket. Some of my pants require it, others don't. Check out the pics here:

    Lots of IWB holsters out there, too... looked into any of those?

    My DS is just a tick tighter fit in my J-frame pocket holster, although the G&G model you show looks pretty well molded to the gun. Might be worth a call to G&G to see if that model can accept the DS.

    You'll tear the glued seams open....DS is 'taller'....won't fit. I hoped they'd start making the darn thing for a Ruger SP101....real close to DS size....

    I've tried dozens but settled on two as my all time favorite. First and foremost the COMIII from HBE Leathergoods. Nothing beats it.

    Second and cheaper but still very high quality is an IWB from AKJ Concealco. Nice thing about this holster is how adjustable it is for cant.

    I would never use or recommend clip draw. It would be convenient and should be safe but I think for EDC a good holster is critical.

    I too carry mine in my pocket most of the time.

    I have the Null Vam (vampire) cross-draw driving holster for my snubby. So comfortable that I sometimes forget I'm wearing it. Year round concealment. Easily conceals under any t-shirt not tucked in, perfect for driving too.
