    Best IWB for a j-frame snubbie.

    What is the most comfortable and most concealable IWB that you have for your snubnose? At what position do you carry it? I'm partial to leather but all options are open.

    I have a JBP for that handgun, no thumb break. I don't use it, I'll entertain offers if interested. You can swap the belt clip for IWB, or OWB, left hand, right hand.

    Of my models, Quick Clip is a great solution for Appendix IWB (or regular carry) and the Double Clip/Snap is good for 3 to 5 o'clock carry.

    I have a leather holster that I bought off of EBay from the user "theholsterstore". I believe he makes them himself. I love it, so much that any future holster I buy will be from him. Didn't cost that much either. My S&W 637 fits in there perfectly, and rides along so comfortably I totally forget it's there within a few minutes. I usually carry at the 11:30 position. I'll find and post a picture of it this afternoon when I get home from work.

    I've got a Tucker Cover-up for J-Frame. It's sweeeet, but I waited 17 weeks to get it.
    I'd check with Fist. I've got the #14 which is OWB and IWB. I have 2 on order now and currently have 2 others. Very comfortable, affordable and decent turn around time.

    I always look for the holsters with the clip offset from the cylinder! Lower profile. I wear appendix carry with the J- Frame.

    This one really works well and has a strong and robust clip. It fits the bill in every way and "snaps" into the holster. Got it off ebay, says gun glove on it.



    Ideal with limited amount of size, leather...Del Fatti:



    I know this holster would be perfect because it is shaped like the Uncle Mikes flimsy plastic clip holster I've been using with success. It would be the quality leather upgrade to it.

    As promised,





    Super easy to conceal, durable (worn it daily for over a year), and not expensive. I bought mine for a little under $23, a lighter colored leather one (otherwise identical) can be had for a little under $20. Free shipping too.

    Pack a 340 M&P at 3:30-4:00 position. I love my FIST #19 I.W.B. with optional attachment package and optional added tension screw (probably not needed).

    I wear it most of the time between the belt and the pants rather than completely IWB - depending on the pants I'm wearing that day.

    I got the leather. Great retention and took about 7 weeks.

    Check out the #1 with or without a cant. Perhaps ultra thin kydex would wook well if you always wanted to wear it completly IWB. Moleskin would add to comfort level. Thinness of material would more than make up for the clip being centered IMO.

    Thumbs up

    I used a Don Hume IWB with the metal clip right over the cylinder for years. Was always pushing it back into place as it rode up trying to escape my jeans. Called Eric Larsen at HBE Specialty Leatherworks and he recommended the ProTL and I ordered one for my 36. Carry it at 4:00 and the rig is comfortable and stays in place thanks to the offset clip which draws the revolver in tight. Here is a pic of one from Erics website for an auto. Mine was delivered in less than 10 days and IMO is fantastic. Happy shopping and have a great Thanksgiving!

    I also like the AJ Concealco IWB a lot but would also say that a HBE Leatherworks COMIII holster with closed bottom is fantastic too.
