Why not get one of the OWB snap on holsters that several makers offer, including some on this site. I don't make any with that design myself.

Found a good solution. A guy was selling one of those Tagua holster on another forum for $12 shipped and I was curious about them.
so I took a $12 gamble. And it paid off in spades!
Here's some info on it from an ebay ad. But Natchez sells the same holster for around $14, a lot cheaper than this ebay guy:
Good quality leather and double stitched. It's tight and sturdy. It goes IWB, OWB, SOB. Can be clipped onto pants with no belt or it can be used yaqui style using just a belt with the clip removed.
It's ambidexterous too because it's not a form molded to a specific firearm but it fits my TCP very nicely. And it's real snug. The leather is good quality and it's double stitched.
I was worried that for only $12 it wouldn't be much of a holster. I was wrong. It's a great holster.
It's equal or perhaps a little better build/quality wise to the Don Hume line.
This is exactly what I do. I can't afford to buy a whole new wardrobe to accomodate CCW. Some of my pants fit me, but not my super-wide Glock30sf. So I use the Comp-tac infidel holster. If there isn't enough room inside the waitband, I put it between my pants and my belt. So the holster is held by the belt the same way it would be IWB, it just technically is sitting on the outside of the pant material rather than the inside.
This gives me 3 benefits.
#1. The super-tight ride of an IWB
#2. The ability to use the holster with my existing wardrobe
#3. Easy on and off for when I have to enter CPZ (Criminal Protection Zones) where carry isn't allowed.
I would NOT get a lefthanded model to clip it outside of the belt alltogether because the clips really aren't strong enough IMO
Why not get a right handed paddle holster? Like was mentioned, you'd get too much wobble from a clip used on the outside.

I have a leather holster trimmed with sharkskin from Littlebearholsters. The sharkskin trimmed belt loops holster that is IWB, OWB, Between the pants and the belt( semi- OWB? ) and if you aquire Kydex belt clips it can be a Tuckable holster as well. I like the "BTPATB", it is easy to mount to mmy belt and still press the hand grip tight to my side.
Dave Galloway will work with you to make the holster you need and his pricing is very fair. They have 2 locations; Jacksonville,FL & Clark Fork, ID
I think you will find that, as mentioned earlier the entire package will be weak and wobbly on the outside. There is a reason an IWB clip works and that is because you use your belt and body to help secure the weapon. I think you will find that doing what you want the to have the draw work w/o the holster coming off; you will need a loose retention holster and that makes for a dangerous carry as the gun will not be retined as well as a holster designed for OWB.
