    Holster options for the SW 642 Airweight?

    Hey all,

    I recently purchased a 642 for my wife, but find that Im going to carry it too instead of my Glock 22. Feels great btw..anyhow, the only real holster option Ive found is the DeSantis Nemesis holster and while its great and works well, I was wondering if there was anything else out there or something that you guys use?

    Thanks

    Steve

    If you are looking for an OWB, check out Bluegrass Hosters. I have one for my 442 and it rides high and tight, so you can cover with a t-shirt and no one will know it's there.

    The Mika Pocket Holster is and excellent option. However. For and easy do teal with option...I like the looks of the Galco Speed Paddle.

    For pocket carry, Mika holsters are good as mentioned above and I also really like my RKBA leather pocket holster. Low price on both and they work well.

    I have a lot of J frame pocket holsters but the one I use the most is from Elite Survival Systems.

    For pocket carry of a 642, IMO nothing beats a Mika. Holster stays in pocket when you draw and it does not print "gun."

    I don't pocket carry my 642, but when I tried it I found the Mika holster much too bulky.
    For an OWB I think that the Fist # 12 is about the best around, and especially when you consider cost and delivery times.

    I like the fact that the gun muzzle clears the holster at the top of the belt.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I, on the other hand, find the Mika pocket holster to be perfect...and I wear fairly tight jeans.



    To be honest, the only reason I even own this 642 is because of the ability to pocket carry and its quick presentation. If it could only be utilized OWB or IWB...I have far better weapon options

    I've been using the same Mika in my right front pocket for years, and have a brand new backup Mika, should I ever wear out my first Mika.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Mika....

    Don't discount Comp-Tac for IWB and OWB. I've got a few of their holsters. My wife has one of their OWB's for a Bersa. I do have an IWB for a S&W 638 (Shirt Tucker model) Love 'em and it's hard to find a better company to deal with that these folks. Very customer oriented.
