    Desantis speed scabbard?

    Anyone here use one these OWB Rigs for a S&W J-frame,if so how well does it carry/conceal? Also any pics a snubby being carried in one would be great as I'm trying to get an idea of how high this holster rides thanks.
    Snub nose revolvers,the original concealed carry guns.

    No pics but I used to carry my 3" S&W model 66-2 in one until the price on the revolver went sky high. Didn't want it in the evidence vault if I had to use it.

    For CC it was marginal in the summer under a light shirt and yes I was wearing a good Beltman belt. It rode low exposing the bottom of the holster and the 66 is thicker than your J so it was more prone to printing. It was great for a winter carry holster when I was wearing heavier clothing or a coat. I'm not a big guy so I can't pull off carrying OWB like some of the big boys can.

    They are a great holster, but not the best for CC IMO.

    For great all around year carry I suggest a good IWB. I carry my model 36 in a HBE Leatherworks Pro TL and it dissapears under a loose fitting shirt. Most comfortable, well made holster the 36 has ever ridden in. GREAT for year round carry with easy concealment garments.

    Heres a pic of the original I sold like an idiot and another I bought within 4 months thats trimmed with alligator. Great holster for a great revolver.

    Old Pro TL


    New Pro TL with Sharkskin
