First post on the forum, and a special greeting to other Virginians!
I'm looking to start carrying a Ruger SP101 .357 3", and would like to carry it inside my waist band and fairly low. I'm not sure if this is called crotch carry or not! I'd like to find something that will put the revolver below the pantline, so it won't print even with a tight shirt. I am 5'9 220lbs with large legs so I think I have a bit more flexibility with storage than if I were thinner. Since I am right handed I'd basically like the gun to sit on my extreme upper right leg -- the hip crease area.
Does anyone have any recommendations/pictures of holsters that might fit this bill? Since I'm new to this, I might be asking for something that doesn't exist. A gun store employee told me I'd likely have to get a custom made holster given the dimensions of the SP101, which I don't mind.
I'm somewhat odd, but my favorite IWB holster (I have one for every gun plus an extra for several) is the $10 Ace Case. I tried one because I figured for $10, what's there to lose? I really like it. Mine have been very durable, very comfortable, and I like being able to slide the clip around on my belt if I need to like when I get in the car, or remove the gun with the holster fairly easily if I desire. I also like the fact that it rides the grip a little lower and parallel to my belt line. I also have at least a dozen other top brand holsters (I'm trying hard to like my my new MTAC), but these have become, and will probably remain my go-to's from here on out.
I have found two holsters that have both proven to quality and quick delivery...High Noon holsters and Fist Holsters.
I had pushed Fist holsters for a long time until I came across High Noon holsters...here's a list of possible IWB's

I have a white hat for my 3" sp101. I'm very happy with it. I also have a crossbreed for my LCR and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for the sp 101 either.
Take a look at my holsters at SHTF Gear LLC . We sell a lot of them for the SP101 and the LCR. People Love them. Competitive pricing, best warranty, and orders go out in 3-5 days.
You can find your specific holster here, just specify the barrel length in the notes. Ruger SP101-2.25 ACE-1 Holster

I have a White Hat that I wear @ 1-2 o'clock with my CZ Rami 9er. Until trying this IWB holster I was never a fan of IWB carry. I am now. It's also tuckable.
yankee is that a 3" or a 2" revolver in the ace case picture?
Yankee - what letter (A, B,...) ACE ITP is it that you like?
I'll second the vote for High Noon Holsters. I use one of their low ride AIWB holsters for my primary carry. They'll have options that fit your requirements.
I use a Stoner 415 holster for my 3 inch SP101. Check out their website. In fact I use the Stoner 415 for all my carry pistols.

Take a look at their offerings, I am sure you would be happy selecting one of Clay's holsters.
