    I've heard great things about Crossbreed holsters and Remora. I have a Remora holster on its way for my LCP.

    I'm looking for OWB right hand, with thumb break for SW 64 with 2". And I don't want 2 1/2, I want 2. And I need it to pull tight to the body.

    This is a nice holster. I went locally and looked at it and very nicely made but it was not for me. Look and see if someone has it near you. I wanted the thumbbreak just like you, but ended up with the mini scabbard, just for the comfort!
    Good luck.

    +1 on this holster. I've got it for my Shield. It's worth checking out for your 64.

    Its not easy to find something that fits just right. I have an Italian pistol that resembles a Walther PP. 30 years ago I used to carry IWB easily. Now 30 years later and quite a few lbs heavier I cant seem to make an IWB work for me. So its either going to be pocket carry or OWB. A friend sent me some from his box of didn't work holsters. From what I found I need a belt holster with a forward cant to be carried at the 4 o clock. This puts it out of the way of both front and rear pockets, and just outside of my love handle. Because my pistol is an older off brand Ill probably have it custom made by a local saddle maker. As long as I don't mind him using saddle scraps [ not the prettiest pieces of leather ] His price is right for a custom holster. Try taking the gun to a couple of gun stores and try a few till you narrow it down. Then maybe a custom is what you will need. DR

    I believe your thinking is flawed. For me there is no right holster. There are holsters that do one job well and other holsters that do another job well. I have 3 hosters for my P3AT. One is total concealment, one is good concealment, one is comfort and ability to do manual work well.
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    I don't carry the same gun for every situation. If I'm out camping or hiking I carry one gun, if I'm out running around town, I carry a different gun, if I'm running down to the local 7-11 and right back home I carry still a different gun...right now I'm looking for a holster for my "carry while running around town" weapon. I have holsters for the others and they work fine for what I do with them.

    Hawkeye, Ill be happy with a holster that's comfortable enough to wear all day. I want to be able to do my daily walking, driving,and sitting without a gun poking or rubbing me. I have other smaller guns for deep cover or less clothing. But this is the smallest that I can easily shoot. This is the one for comfort and the ability to do manual labor. DR

    When I worked for a large PD some of the dectectives used to carry their service weapon in a holster that put the barrel of the pistol right into their armpit. Are these still made?? I'm starting to carry again and the only experience with hosters is one I had "specially" made...a Federal Man on a 4 inch drop.
