    Horseshoe Leather #28, although none of Andy Aratoonian's holsters bear retention straps. The molding is sufficient to maintain retention (mine is at least 10 years old).

    If you like paddle holsters, the DeSantis Viper (w/ strap) is a substantial rig, medium ride height with adjustable cant. I have one for my Sig 220 and the thumb break is in exactly the right spot.

    For comfortable carry of a large handgun the pancake-style holsters are difficult to beat. The smooth outer shell conceals the profile of the weapon. The weight is firmly anchored fore-and-aft. The pistol is pulled snugly into the body. Worn with a sturdy belt there are few other designs that offer as much comfort.

    Several makers offer pancake-style holsters with thumb-break retention.
