    I have a Tucker Cover-up for my 642. I wear it at 4 o'clock.

    I originally bought it thinking I could wear it at Appendix (1:30) or Crossdraw (10:30). It doesn't do either one well for me.

    At Appendix it seems to dig into my crease between my thigh and belly when I sit. Same in Crossdraw.

    What it does really well is give me an easy adjustment to exactly the right angle. It is also very easy to put on and take off. It has become my "grab and go" gun/holster combination.

    YMMV one hell of a lot.

    I'm glad you said you wear it at 4:00. I have one ordered and prefer to carry at 3:30 or so.

    I carry 2 j frames a lot in the florida heat. One in the pocket the other on my right hip with a barami hip grip and tyler t grip. I am going to publix super market now with 10 for sure and 2 speed strips.

    For summer wear with a tucked in shirt the below rig works well. The edge of the butt rides even with the top edge of the belt. Just a bit of shirt blousing conceals it. It also carries with the thinner butt at the belt level and not the thicker cylinder so there is less bulk.

    That's exactly what I plan on doing: a 642 with ct grips in the pocket and a 637 with stock grips behind the right hip.

    I've gone back to using the Cover-up at Appendix. I realized that the discomfort I was feeling wasn't from the holster. It was from the clip.

    Tucker uses a Comp-Tac clip for this holster. The clip extends about an inch and a half past it's bottom adjustment hole. The bottom of the clip was what was digging into me.

    I cut the clip off about a half inch below the hole I was using and smoothed the edge with sandpaper. No more discomfort!

    I now carry my J-frame at Appendix all day. It's not as comfortable as my Tucker "The Answer" was at 4 o'clock, but it will do.

    I really like my Comp Tac CTAC for my J Frame. Very light(enough so that I can loosen up my belt and my gun doesn't slide down) and very comfortable.

    Sparks Summer Special II or a Del Fatti would be my vote.

    I looked at a Sparks SSII the other day, quite nice, even for a J-Frame.

    Sigauer:

    Gunners Alley has several good photos of a Comp-Tac CTAC rig that should help. I carry my J frame in one using the standard hooks. Very easy on and off and hides well.

    I was considering IWB for my J-frame, but find that OWB works just fine since it's so short--for convenience I went with the Kramer MSP Paddle. If you're not totally sold on IWB, give it some thought...
