    Recommend me sp101 owb

    Hey guys, just picked up a new sp101 and am switching back to a revolver for edc. I'm tired of holster shuffling and tired of iwb carry as well. Can anyone recommend a good owb holster that rides high and tight to the body? I want to try carrying owb with a tshirt untucked over it.

    Also, belt recommendations?

    I personally love the liger belts. Been hard finding them lately but my last one "shrunk", aka getting fat, and needed new one. Still looks like new and is 9 years old. As for the holster I'm using a Don Hume one i found on ebay for about $25 shipped. Like it so far.

    Sideguard makes a nice OWB holster for revolvers. I would love a sp101.

    I used a Fobus paddle holster and was EXTREMELY pleased with the way it performed. It was secure yet easy to draw, rode at the perfect height, reholstering was effortless, and you can get one for around $25. They are truly hard to beat.

    Not a SP101, but I carry my Taurus 650 CIA (which is about the same weight) in a Tagua thumb break belt slide. I bought it on EBAY for around $40.

    This is kinda what happened to me. In the past two years I've carried an LCR, M&P .40c and a Glock 26 daily. I missed the LCR almost immediately and was looking for an sp101. I had only came across one other one and let it slip through. So last Friday after work I stopped at my lgs on a whim and there sat a brand new gorgeous sp101 for $529. I had a bit of an inner struggle, we just got married and we have a 6 month old AND we just dumped savings into new flooring - total wrong time to buy a gun. But again, only the second one I'd seen in 2 years. I let wifey know what was up and then I couldn't get the credit card out fast enough lol.

    The timing was bad but I couldn't let this one go, I sold my Glock the next day so it's basically paid for without harm. I'll miss the Glock but I plan to get another, and can get another pretty much any time I want. Can't say the same about the sp.

    How hard was the Fobus on the sp's finish? Create a lot of swirls and scratches? I plan to send the gun to gemini eventually too and have heard these polymer holsters cause some nasty wear?

    Ghost, my assessment of my fobus paddle holster, mirrors yours. Its cheap, it worked, its comfortable, and Im satisfied with it. As a matter of fact I took it through fighting pistol, where one fires 1,000 rounds in two days, drawing & reholstering repeatedly.

    However, I was told in that course to get rid of it. That it was not an option for CC as that particular brand, paddle holster were subject to extreme failure. AND that there were youtube videos showing the failures.

    Sure enough, I went to check it out on youtube, and it was like I was told. What the videos showed was "the bg" simply breaking the holster off its attachment, then having your holster part, and your gun.

    It was recommended to me that I scrap the fobus, and consider blade tech, which I did. I still use the fobus at the range, but thats it. Btw, I really like the blade tech attachment options. Ie one holster can be belt, paddle, IWB, etc, with the right attachments. And its is VERY secure, and comfortable.

    That is next on my list!! There is something about the shape of the the sp101 I like better than any other revolver. Plus I need to diversify my calibers... :-)
