    Concealed holster options for J frame

    I need to find a holster for my new S&W Model 60. I looked at a few today such as Blackhawks, but they seem more suited for Non concealment. Any good suggestions?

    If your cover options allow - I'd suggest a good quality pancake/belt slide deal for OWB. If too it is 'hi-ride' then concealment is a breeze and on a good belt, comfort would be stellar.

    Most of the custom quality holster folks probably can offer something in this category. You don't mention bbl length but assuming snub or at least short - this could suit well for the j-frame.

    Yes it is a snubby. By the way I am not a big fan of leather for some reason. That will narrow my options drastically.

    Hmmm - yes - it will limit you a lot. Can't help wondering why you are anti leather! Could well be then something like a paddle Fobus or a decent Kydex option would suit. Don't whatever you do go for a ''fabric'' Uncle Mikes!!!!

    Comp-Tac might work for you

    I presume the Model 60 is a J Frame ... either of these two guys can hook you up with custom work ...

    IMHO BearClaw's are more concealable, Dan's are more utilitarian.

    I use my model 60 no dash as the form for my holsters. Take a look.

    You could check out Fist holsters in Kydex. They're reasonably priced. I've owned a number of them. I tried kydex with my J frame and found it uncomfortable because it's so hard; so the cylinder was poking my hip all day long. I've yet to find a really comfortable IWB for a J frame because I life the J frame to be carried with about 25 degrees of cant. It makes it lay flatter on me. I'm think and slender so if I wear a j frame at 3:30 to 5:00 straight up and down the grip pokes out and will print with a light shirt.

    So far an Uncle Mikes #36 IWB works best. Good luck finding something and I agree that a good OWB leather will conceal reasonably and will be more comfortable.

    As always, I suggest Crossbreed...I love mine, i'm a big guy and it is very comfrotable. Its finally starting to break in and the leather is getting soft.

    Better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6

    Fed - yes I was refering to the nylon ones - I confess I have no experience of a suede version and always think of the nylon ones, which IMO have little use for good carry purposes.

    Desantis Scorpion. All kydex IWB. Works very well.


    I carry both a S&W 642 and a S&W mod 60 2"bbl in it every once in a while. I prefer my Don Hume snap loop IWB, but if you don't want leather, the scorpion is a perfet solution.

    Have you tried leather? How about a UBG. They are nice and very reasonable and if you didn't like it you could sell it to me CHEAP.


    Just an idea.
