From a pure comfort point of view, nothing I've worn has beat N82 Tactical Professional holster. The holster provides great retention and your pistol has zero contact with your skin. SMITH & WESSON «

I currently carry IWB (tuckable) or pocket with a Shield. I spend a ton of time outside working around the yard and I'd really like to find something that I can wear on the waist under an untucked shirt. Something that rides very close, draws without coming off the waist with the gun. Obviously needs to hold secure since I'm doing yard work.
IWB is great for its purpose but it isn't as comfortable as I'd like. Pocket carry gets old while working; just swinging in pocket drives me crazy. Most paddle holsters suck. They ride like a mile away.
Everyone's body is different...thankfully! I love my Galco IWB Summer Comfort...it is small compared to the Crossbreeds or other similar holsters, has great retention, has a forward cant, is easy on and off the belt with it's 2 snap loops, and tucks the gun close into your side...I'm wearing it now while lying down on the couch underneath my t-shirt--don't even notice it's there...and I wear it to mow the lawn and do other outside work as well as use it for my EDC rig.
Sounds like you're willing to go the OWB route.
I've gone just about full-time OWB and spent much time researching and trying OWB holsters that ride "high and tight". The two best I've found are:
FIST #10 - FIST, INC.
Rosen UPL-EXP - Rosen Product Line (go to the Express Line and scroll down)
The only difference between the two is the FIST has a slight cant to it and the Rosen is straight up and down for wearing at 1:00-3:00 position. Both are top quality, stiff, leather that secure my G27 very well.
Good luck in the search.
Raleigh... Where Barney comes to Party...
Glock 27 or M&P Shield for every day carry (LCP for deep conceal when necessary)... Glock 23 for the home.

Get a Remora IWB Holster. Do some searches online, you will see they are a popular option. For a small gun, like yours it can even be worn with sweats or drawstring shorts. I think they have a sale going on for fathers day. The price is right too.
thanks for the links. im checking them all.
BUT; maybe i wasnt clear enough about what i'm specifically looking for.
outside the waistband
as close as possible
preferably NOT with belt loops but just a clip over the belt or pants
Im perfectly happy with my IWB for its normal use. I just want something quicker and easier to put on and take off while around the house that will conceal well under a shirt.
I'm still looking at the links because who doesnt want more options for great holsters? :p
Perhaps something like the link below?
Let us know if and what you purchase and how it works.
Thanks for the link. I will look into those.
Yaqui belt slide, or just a normal belt slide. I have a Tagua belt slide for my G19 and I love it. Very minimalist, and conceals under a t-shirt just fine. It has loops instead of clips, but I don't know of any OWB holsters that are clip-on only.
