    OWB Holster Suggestions

    I am looking to get an OWB holster for my Sig 229R. I carry IWB all the time, the OWB holster will only be used for USPSA shooting and for hunting trips(some horseback riding).

    Holster must be leather(cuz I like em that way) and <$100. I don't think I want a retention strap due to the USPSA shooting, but It will need to hold the gun securely.

    I was thinking of getting a Galco Combat Master. Looks like a good setup, and would be boned to fit my gun perfectly. Anyone have experience with this?

    Any suggestions of other holsters to look at.

    Thanks.

    I have used my OWB carry holster(s) for USPSA matches before. I've never taken my SIG to these events as I don't do single stack, but I like my DeSantis Speed Scabbard for my P220 carry and I would use this holster for competition with that pistol.

    I love my Regulator from Nate at UBG Holsters. It's a snap-around OWB that fits both my P220/rail and my P226/non-rail. I think is is an excellent piece of work for under $100. I bought it after seeing Lima's post about the same holster, which JD got for her:

    I've used mine for IDPA and it works as advertised---good retention but smooth draw with only a little bit or breaking-in.

    +1 on the Regulator from UBG. I've got a couple of them and it's become my favorite OWB holster so far. And it's about the same price as the Galco Combat Master.

    One of the things I like best about the Regulator is that it rides lower than most regular pancakes, which may or may not be to your liking.

    I have had good success with the Premier from Dillon Leather. It's made by Mitch Rosen. Its snap on/off like the Regulator. I have it for my p228.....the same gun as the p229, basically. Might look at that.

    Yep, I meant to mention that myself. I wear my IWB fairly deep, so I like having a similarly low ride on the OWB.

    The Bluegrass Kit Carson model has caught my eye...looks like just what I'm looking for. They are a site supporter as well so I'd like to throw them the business.

    +1 on the DeSantis Speed Scabbard. I have one for my 1911 and, although it's a stingle stack, it works just fine. My pistol is very secure and accepted in IDPA circles.

    For another lower riding holster w/ snaps. Take a look at the Mitch Rosen Premier. Works great for my P220C. Available in the express version which may be had in a reasonable time (i.e. approx. 1 month).

    Haugen Handgun Leather

    I just recieved a OWB for my Kahr made by Haugen Handgun Leather. He makes them one at a time and they fit like a glove.

    I bought a OWB holster from Don Hume for my S&W 686 for about $40 including shipping. It also fits my GP100.
