    My favorite OWB holster is my Blackhawk SERPA holster. But, it isn't really a CCW holster. I use it when I open carry.

    For CCW with an OWB I really like the Don Hume Agent 711: Open Top Concealment Holster. SEE IT HERE.

    It costs about $58 and is very well made. I am usually a Kybex guy but when I want a leather holster for one reason or another, this is the one I reach for.

    They also make a version with a thumb break. You can see it HERE.
    It usually runs about $65.

    My favorite is the Askins avenger type made by several manufacturers.

    My favorite right now is Mitch Rosen's UPL holster. It rides high and tight and I prefer a straight vertical draw vs a canted draw. I also like FIST's Kydex #9 with a straight cant. Those 2 are what I usually grab while going OWB

    What torrejon says goes for my Mitch Rosen lined Premier Full Detail holsters for my 229 and my 239. Plus they smell good. And thanks to orangehole for helping me decide on Mitch's gear. I got companion mag carriers and one of his belts and the whole rig is really sweeeet...

    Askins Avenger, because it works.

    Lightning Arms is a stocking dealer for Alessi (as well as Sparks, Del Fatti and Galco). They charge a bit of a premium but shipping is fast (my mag pouch arrived two days after ordering) and they're good people.

    I'm currently using a Galco Concealable for my Glock 19, it works but doesn't conceal as well as a custom rig.

    Favorite OWB that I own is a Nelson's Patriot NP-1 discontinued Milt Sparks... It is a snap on OWB with a very small paddle on the back for support.... SUPER COMFY and holds nice and tight.

    It's a bugger gettin' that leatherman out without showin' the goods!

    I also just received a SWEET RIDE FOR MY .45 frim KD, defender with elephant trim that I am still warming up to. I suspect as soon as I get it broke in to STOP SQUEAKING, I will wear it more, it holds close and tight and has excellent retention, thinking to order the conchise defender tomorrow since I just got a bonus the wife doesn't know about.... My only concern with this holster is the snap flaps are opposite my nelson patriot. Never noticed or conidered there would be a difference, but I have noticed that a standard button down shirt when worn as a cover garment tends to hang-up on those flaps and PRINT badly. I was made by my wife at the grocery store.... 8 years carrying and first time she ever knew.... YRMV

    +1 on the Blackhawk Serpa holster!

    A few law enforcement friends of mine let me try theirs on for a Sig (they all use it for off duty carry), and I quickly went out and got my own. If you can find them in any stores around your area, do give them a fair try. The retention is amazing and your finger finds it's way right next to the trigger guard when you unholster your weapon. It's plenty concealable in my opinion. Whenever I wear it, I just put an overshirt on and noone would be the wiser.

    All my OWB holsters are Comp-Tac FBI Paddles. They do everything I need them to do, ride close, fit the pistols perfectly, and give me the draw from kydex that I love.
