Clip or Snap for AIWB - Does it matter?
I've been following the posts recently about AIWB carry. I tend to prefer pocket carry for my J-frames, but I recently purchased a 640 and have been thinking about trying AIWB carry. I've looked at the posts and searched the forum, but haven't really been able to find anything more than a comment or two here and there about the advantages/disadvantages of having a clip or snap for the holster.
Does one ride lower than the other?
I'm rather short, but a bit stout, so I would want the grip to ride fairly low to avoid printing.
Many of the pics I've seen of AIWB clip holsters the clip appears to be over the cylinder area and it seems that would add a bit to the overall width/bulk of the holster. The pics I've seen of snap holsters seem to have the snap off to one side. Also, it appears that the snap holster straps are bit snugger on the belt. Would a snap holster therefore be better for a revolver?
Does it really matter (clip vs. snap) or is it just a matter of personal preference?
I imagine there are many on this forum that have experimented with both, so I appreciate you sharing your experiences and responses.
