    clip draw belt clip is the way to go with the j-frame.

    There are several options. I have one from Alabama Holster Company for my 442 that is well made, but I'm not crazy about the J clip: The Hooker Alabama Holster Company - Concealment Products That "Just Plian Work"

    There's also the 2 O'Clock from Comp-Tac that I may try: Inside Waistband Holsters - products new home - Two O'Clock

    A couple more I know of:
    The Malabar Front
    EHUD APPENDIX CARRY AIWB (Appendix Inside the Waist Band) - DALE-EHUD
    JOAB APPENDIX CARRY AIWB (Appendix Inside the Waist Band) - DALE-JOAB

    A simple straight drop IWB can work well too:

    I think the best example is the Alessi APX

    For appendix carry I use the tried and true Barami Hip Grips. I don't worry about the exposed trigger with the typical heavy double action.



    They do mandate a cover garment, though they sit so low you could almost tuck around it.

    I've got a Mitch Rosen 'Ricco" that works very well, but you can't use it with a tucked in shirt.

    I have no need to have it be tuckable...I was pretty much looking for the thinnest leather appendix holster that carry's right (Puts the grip right above the belt line)..but it's most likely going to be trial and error, like all other holster options.

    I appreciate all those links mchasal and actually might of found a good pocket holster because of one of them. The allessi might work but seems it may carry the pistol too high on the belt line.

    Keep any suggestions coming

    Sir, I went to a leather shop, got some soft leather, needles and thread. I then went home, got my dremel, some heavy paper for a template and started building. It took a little modifying after the first try, but I now have a holster that carrys my model 36 like I wanted it to. I wear it at about 1:30-2:00 and it is comfortable. Not pretty, but very capable.
    Regards,
    Howard
