    IWB or other holster for my S&W J Frame

    I will be getting my hammerless Cenntennial J Frame soon and I'm looking for gun leather. I currently carry my Glock in a Crossbreed IWB Super Tuck, however the Smith is a different thing all togeather. So...reccomendations?

    Do pocket carry with a good leather pocket holster.
    Also, I like the Don Hume JIT belt holster for my j frame.

    I prefer aiwb. I carry my 642 in a sideguard quicksnap that I had him lower. I like for the grip to ride just above the belt. I couldn't be happier and its economical. If you need something quick I find the highnoon holsters hard to beat. The highnoon I have is a little high for appendix but great for iwb in say the 3-4 posistion.

    For IWB, I like carrying my J-Frame in a Sidguard Minimal Clip or High Noon Mr. Softy. In the pocket it rides in a Looper pocket holster.

    +1 on the Mika holster for pocket carry. Excellent, comfortable, well-made holster at a very reasonable price. That said, I'm also considering getting an AIWB for my 640, so I'm glad you posted this thread. I may put up another question thread on the advantages/disadvantages of clip vs. snaps for an IWB holster.

    FIST #20 adjustable is what I use most of the time. It is not tuckable. I have three other J frame IWB holsters. The FIST #20 is my favorite. Carry about 3:30.

    IWB features

    The FIST #20 has the best features for IWB carry. Note it uses snap straps fore and aft the gun. More secure than spring clips, adds no bulk. Spring clip holsters do come out with the gun occasionally - often enough we banned them. (Remember Murphy's Law) Either a spring clip or a snap strap placed over the cylinder adds bulk which is counter to the purpose of IWB carry.

    What ever brand you choose these features plus a reinforced mouth - available at FIST as an option - are what to look for.

    I have a OWB holster for it although I have never carried it in it (outside my house). If i'm packing my J-frame, its in the pocket. My theory is that if I can hip carry my j-frame, I can do the same with my M&P.

    I use either a Mika pocket holster, or a Remora No-Clip holster.

    The Mika works well in all of my pants, except for my slacks. A bit loose, there.

    The Remora works well as a pocket holster, too. But beware the Remora website shows a size 8C for the j-frames, but it's not accurate. You need the 8UC, I believe.
