    I gotta agree....Tucker leather...I'm saving up for one of their OWB rigs too. You chose a leather choice and a kydex choice though. It seems that perhaps that is your dilemna. Can't help ya there as I'm biased to leather over kydex, spandex, latex, and cordex.....I've gotten far away from nylon too!

    Another leather vote here. I have a B-T product that is just fine, but quality leather is so much "better".

    Actually that's part of it. It is worth remarking that the Tucker rig is not all leather. The clips/loops that actually hold it in place "where the straddle meets the saddle" are kydex.

    I saw some others on the market that were pretty good but I whittled it down to these two.

    I have the Blade Tech holster and I LOVE it for my Sig! But the Tucker looks a bit more comfortable for a revolver user.

    I'll probably go with the Tucker now that I think about it.

    When I think about how kydex knife sheaths feel IWB, the leather will probably be a better surface to work from.

    It seems to be a pretty smart idea now that I think about it to have the actual holster part made of leather and the attachment made out of kydex. That way you don't wear out the most frequently used part, and kydex clips + wearing an undershirt = protection from sweat.

    Next paycheck I think I'll order one.

    I obtained a spare rig from someone - suiting a 3" N frame - it is leather and from JBP #306 ...... I have used this (belt slide) for my 4" M28-2 to good effect. I have some Kydex and Fobus stuff for various guns but a large revo - leather every time.

    I know Tucker has a good rep' and so my vote would be in that direction.

    I'm with you on the idea of mixing the leather and kydex....I think it most appropriate for the attachments as well....and probably replaceable should they ever break or wear out....perhaps a lot easier than replacing the leather attachments of like kind. That Tucker is a sharp lookin holster...don't think you can go wrong with it.

    I have a Kydex Fobus paddle holster for my 4" 686. It's actually a really good holster for its price, and if not for the fact that I cannot conceal it that way to save my life without a very heavy cover garment, I'd be tempted to use something like it!

    I give it an A for speed, a B+ for retention, an A+ for price, and a big fat F for concealment. And I know something about giving Fs.

    I would opt for the Tucker with J-hooks, not the ones shown. Last thing you need is to draw and have the holster come with it (BTDT)! J-hooks will prevent that from happening.

    I might opt for BT-Kydex external, but IWB, leather should be a lot more comfortable. That's why I got the Milt Sparks SS2 IWB for my 1911 (Brownells stocks this for 1911 and Glocks) and am patiently awaiting delivery of same for my Walther P99 (special order direct from MS).
