    What is the best OWB CCW holster for a large semi-auto

    I'm looking for an OWB holster to use with an HK USP .45 which will be a CCW (I know, I know, it's a big gun). I'd appreciate all opinions of what is the best OWB concealment holster made.

    I think I'd have to go with PureKustom on this one.

    If they have one for it, check out Garrett Industries... I really like the leather lined Kydex, and they fit really close to the body and have the best of both worlds. They also have retention models.

    I'd say you'll have a hard time beating a Milt Sparks 55BN.

    ericb327 is correct. Holsters like clothing fit different body shapes differently and the type of clothing you wear dictates how well it will conceal differing sizes and shapes.

    I'll second the Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro! Plus you can use it both IWB or OWB.

    FIST fan

    FIST has several pancake versions to consider and many custom options available allowing the customer to pretty much build their own. Most can be had in leather, kydex, or hybrid. Superb quality at a fair price.FIST, Inc.

    This is a Galco Concealable holding a Sig-220 which is another fairly large .45 ACP. The way that it's molded, it tends to pull the gun in tighter against the body making it easier to conceal.

    I've got one of Rocky's Black Ops Pro for my HK45. Honestly, that gun is not an easy thing to conceal and even with a great belt it is HEAVY. Since Rocky's holsters can be used as either IWB or OWB, the only time I find myself CCWing my HK is the winter when I can really throw on some longer clothing. But, I agree with JD, that's the holster to go for.
    The USP is just as hefty of a gun, so you will probably want to consider OWB as well.
    Rocky is great to deal with and I highly recommend calling in, not emailing, as he is far more responsive on the phone. Also, he has a Facebook page and a lot of great photos of some of his custom work.

    +1 on Rocky's PureKuston Black Ops Pro. Call him, and you'll be able to specify all aspects. Great workmanship!

    Another recommendation for Pure Kustom. It is my favorite holster.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
