    "High and Tight" OWB question

    I recently purchased an HK P30. I was pleasantly surprised to find that both my Steyr Little Bear IWB and my Andrews Cross Draw 229R fit it perfectly. Now, I am looking for a minimal exposure OWB holster that is high and tight. I have a Milt Sparks Mirage that is an "under the belt" for my Bersa that works perfectly. I also have been eye balling The Wilderness Zip Slide. I would like minimal leather. The Kydex is uncomfortable and bulky. Suggestions?

    When the term "High & Tight" is mentioned to discribe holster ride, the Milt Sparks model #60TK (previously known as The Roadrunner) instantly comes to mind. Not sure it's made for the HK, but a call to MS would answer your question.

    FYI, The Roadrunner was the first holster I purchased for my CCW (full size1911) back around 1983-84, if I recall correctly. It was the most comfortable, most concealable, highest riding-tightest to the body fitting holster I've ever owned/worn with a full size 1911. PERIOD.!

    Here's a photo I snatched from another forum showing the original Roadrunner design. Note how high the Gun rides as the belt runs through the slots well below the trigger guard.


    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Here's a picture showing the 60TK:
