    Super high ride(meaning muzzle at or almost at the belt-line)

    Does such a beast exist? I went thought the websites on the holster maker list and didn't see anything. A couple were pretty high but not that high. I am looking specifically for a J-frame snubby. A OWB holster that holds the weapon at a forward cant so that the muzzle is at the same level as the bottom of the belt or maybe a 1/4" to 1/2"inch below it. To me that would be perfect. If you've seen such a thing please let me know and provide pics or links if possible. Thanks.

    Bline, check out the Sky High or the Slide Guard by High Noon Holsters. They ride pretty high and might work for you:

    If you get much higher than that you risk being top heavy.

    My Don Hume JIT belt slide is just that, but no cant. Brand new at a gun show for $22.

    I wanted a higher quality j-frame holster with cant and ordered a Bluegrass (forum sponsor). It'll be three weeks Monday...

    I had JIT for a J-frame and didn'tlike it. It felt "floppy" for lack of a better work. A pancake style seems to hold the weapon closer and most I have seen hold the muzzle pretty high up on the beltline.

    Saw that one. Didn't like the extra material below the muzzle. But after considering the "top heavy" point of view, what I'm asking may not be practical. Although at the same time it gives me an idea to develope with a friend who knows how to work leather. I guess I'll have to experiment and see what I come up with. If there are any other suggestions please by all means keep them coming.

    You might want to give Jeff @ Boom-Stick holsters a shout, he was very accommodating with some non-standard options that I wanted. He might be able to set you up with a higher ride holster.

    The High Noon Slide Guard would be a good option.

    If you want to ride much higher than the High Noon or the Kramer you would probably need to have a steel plate inserted between the leather laminations in order to prevent possible holster flop or tilt out.
    And your gun belt would need to be extra stiff and worn quite tight.

    +1 for Nate! This is his standard Bonneville. It works great according to my dad. Any higher and it may lean outwards at the top.

    I have an El Paso High Slide for my Ruger sp101 that may fit your needs. The muzzle of the gun just barely protrudes from the bottom of the holster. I got mine from Cheaper Than Dirt, and they do have one in stock for the j frame. LEG-527 - EPS High Slide Holster S&W "J" 2" Made in USA. Unlined, Form Fitting. - Manufactured by: El Paso Saddlery I have also been intrigued by some of Rusty Sherrick's high ride holsters but have not seen one in person C.

    a high ride like this?



    <a href="http://s22.photobucket.com/albums/b345/cowpi/?action=view&current=SNUBPANCAKE.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b345/cowpi/SNUBPANCAKE.jpg" border="0" alt="SNUB PANCAKE"></a>

    I got this one used a few years ago and now use it to carry my old Rossi M68 in the field (snakes and varmits)

    Not sure of the manufacture...all I can see on the backside is a stamp mark of a big "K" in a rectangular shaped box. There were other markings, but they are pretty smoothed out now.

    It is a comfortable, well concealed holster, but you best not have shoulder or elbow problems if a fast draw is what you want. It does conceal very well with the butt of the gun about elbow high.

    Oh, and you see I carry this actually in the slot normally considered for cross draw carry on left side, rather than the slot with the forward cant. I use it this way because it does conceal much better!

    I would take a second look at Mark Garrity - he has a holster pretty much like you described.

    Check out Mark Garritys "Steadfast", super high ride. I have one for my P99c and the muzzle is just below the top of the belt. Awesome rig but I'm not sure if he is taking orders.
