    Can you recommend a good holster for a Taurus Model 85?

    I prefer to wear OWB or between the belt and pants. Any suggestions for a holster that holds the revolver very close to the body?

    Thanks,

    Try holsters made for Smith & Wesson J-frame revolvers. Brock, of Bluegrass Holsters, could probably help you out.

    I carry mine in one of these from Don Hume:

    DonHume.com - Product Details

    It's inexpensive and it works great with my Taurus.

    - I find the "store bought" Don Hume JIT and 712OT to be effective budget OWB choices. The JIT is straight drop so I can utilize it those few times I decide to carry cross-draw. The 712 0pen Top holds my small frame revolver high, tight, and comfortably........and conceals admirably.

    - "Simply Rugged" makes a very nice, basic handcrafted OWB pancake style holster called the "Silver Dollar" that is extremely comfortable; it is "bargain" priced at $45 !

    - ......My very favorite "custom" OWB holster for a small snub-nose revolver is C. Rusty Sherricks U.S. Hight Ride. I nearly forget I am carrying when I wear this rig.....made of horsehide it's a work of art !

    These are what I find work for me....the trick of course, is to find what works for you. I think most of us would agree that discovering what works is a "process".

    Black hills Leather makes an excellent IWB/Owb combo holster. I have one for my 2" model 10 and love it.

    I use one from KD Holsters. I love the IWB because it come with clips that are adjustable with Chicago screws. You can adjust how high or low you carry, plus you can adjust the cant to a certain degree.

    I find as a woman that I need a lot of adjustability so I can vary my carry according to my clothes.

    My Dad loves them too.
