    IWB Holster for J-Frame with an Off-Set Belt Attachment

    I'm searching for an IWB for a 2" J-Frame revolver. Specifically, I'd like a single point of attachment to the belt with either a belt loop with a snap or a clip. Also, I want the belt loop or clip to be off-set from the cylinder to minimize bulk/printing. 0 degree cant only. Preferably kydex or hybrid kydex/leather, but leather or synthetic material is OK.

    I've seen a few, such as the Blade-Tech UCH, Lobo Leather's Offset Belt Clip IWB, and Alabama Holsters' The Offset, but I'd like your suggestions.

    Recommendations and your experiences with these types of holsters would be greatly appreciated.

    I recommend that you look at a FIST #1, A SideGuard, a N82, High Noon, and Milt Sparks brand holsters. those are names that keep popping up in these types of discussions though you will need to listen to others for experience with these holsters.

    Here's a link to a N82 revolver thread:

    I carry my Shield in a ETW holster (sold on Ebay). I really like it. I see they make them for the J-frame. I'm thinking of getting one for my Taurus 650.

    I have a Sideguard Minimal Clip for my J frame. I like that it is thin, light and I was able to get the height like I wanted it. I have worn it during South Ga summers without a problem other than it needed to dry. The offset clip is the bees knees.

    +1 on the ETW. I carry my Colt Defender in one when I need to go "tucked"
    The offset is great, cant is adjustable, and it's comfortable.
    As mentioned, they sell on ebay & there actual web-store is at ETW Holsters
    Looks like they have a brown one and a black one up on ebay right now.

    I just put in for a Comp-Tac 2-o'clock for my 340.

    I wanted a holster that I could keep the gun in, indefinitely, without fear of marring the finish - so Kydex and other unlined plastics or synthetics were at the top of my pick, too. Similarly, I wanted an offset clip to minimize profile, to prevent overlap at the cylinder.

    I'll let you know how it goes, soon.
