I carry OWB most of the time, in a good sturdy leather holster supported by a double layer belt. A long shirt with a print pattern does a good job of hiding the gun. If I need more concealment, then I switch to an IWB.
Owner, Bear River Holsters.
I guess I had a brain fart when I didn't post what gun I was looking to get the holster for. It is the SA XD9 sc.
Milt Sparks 55BN.
Have a couple of Kramers, and a couple of 55BNs en route. Tough to beat.
I know OP that you said OWB but I wanted to share my $.02. I am a big boy myself (6'3", 315#) and I have been searching for the best combo. I just bought a N82 Tactical IWB and wore it today finally for the whole day (Ruger LC9 with a Pro model holster) at about 3:30 to 4:00 and it is extremely comfortable. Other than the fact that I have no posterior and my pants want to slide down (suspenders next purchase) it is wonderful. I wear an A shirt to keep it away from my skin (although the leather backing keeps the gun from touching) and an oversized tee shirt over untucked. I wore it today to several of my regular stops for a Saturday and nobody was the wiser. It also is even comfortable sitting which is rare for IWB.
Buy this, throw away the belt clip and wear it OWB.
I love mine...
I mostly carry IWB, but for OWB holsters I’ve got: a Milt Sparks 55BN, a High Noon Slide Guard, and a couple Kaluban Cloaks. I’ve become a huge fan of the KCs, they’re Kydex, extremely well made, modular, their service can only be called “rapid”, and they keep in touch during the whole process. By being Kydex they’re very thin, and they hold in close to your body, I can carry my PPQ With Surefire X400 light/laser under a large shirt. By modularity, I mean they go from OWB, to IWB, to AIWB, a paddle, all with adjustable cant, simply by changing or adjusting hardware. I’m shipping out next week for a short deployment so I ordered an M9 holster from them, and literally had it 4 days later. Here’s their link, and a couple pictures of my KCs:
