    Anyone carry a Ruger GP100 4"?

    Anyone carry a Ruger GP100 4" concealed IWB or OWB?

    Ever since I received my CCL last year, I have been carrying my trusty Glock. I want to carry occasionally my Ruger GP100 4". I don't have a holster for it yet. I am assuming OWB would be the best but I would be interested IWB if it is feasible.

    How do most people carry DA revolvers?
    Do they get a thumb break?

    Also any custom holter maker that makes a concealable holster for the GP100 4" that is under $100?

    Not a 4 inch GP100, but I have carried hubby's 6 inch GP100, wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. Even he was none the wiser, and he watches for printing.
    Check out Simply Rugged's pancake holsters, reasonably priced and great quality

    Did you carry OWB or IWB?

    Was it real heavy?

    OWB, but the Simply Rugged holsters can be purchased with a strap that converts it to IWB if you choose..
    Heavy, some would probably say so, but compared to my S&W 686+ with a 3 inch barrel it wasn't even noticeable to me. I've carried the Ruger in a Galco slide type holster on a few occasion and it rides a little higher than the Simply Rugged, making it easier to conceal the length of the barrel.
    Rob at Simply Rugged custom made the holster to ride slightly lower, I'm short waisted and a normal holster sits too high, even with lower waisted pants. Still the holster was here in a little over two weeks.
    I'm sure I'll have him make another one for my Model 29.

    If I'm in a revolver mood I carry a 3" GP100 or a 4" N-Frame in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II.

    It's an IWB Holster that hides the gun well in my opinion.

    OWB for me, but thinking about getting a IWB holster for my GP. I am really starting to prefer IWB.

    Do you have a 4" GP?

    What holster do you have now and what IWB do you plan on getting?

    Yes, OWB no thumb break.

    Yes, I have a GP 100 with 4 inch barrel. The holster I am currently using is a OWB Bianchi #5BH. It is ok for CC, but not the best. The plus side is it rides fairly high and tight. Easily covered. The negative is thumb break, which is great around the farm but not needed for CC. The trigger is exposed but the hammer is securely covered by the thumb break. I don't think it is an issue.
    I have not yet decided what IWB I want to get for it. I have been looking around while shopping for a new IWB for a full size 1911 and the selection the GP is limited.

    Take a look at Sidegaurd holsters.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Just a heads up, my wait for a Silver Dollar Pancake from Simply Rugged is going on 10 weeks (not including a week for Christmas/New Years) even though their stated wait time is 4-6 weeks.

    Thank you for the heads up. 4-6 weeks is long enough for me. Almost too long.

    I did carry my 4" GP100 for a little while until I messed around with the sights and ran out of ammo before I could get it sighted in. I absolutely love carrying it. Ive only done it OWB with a Desantis holster. It does have a thumb break but wish I got it without the thumb break. The holster definitely has enough retention itself, so I just leave it unbuttoned.

    This is the one although I do think they offer one without the thumb break. Commerce Storefront B2C

    IWB may be feasible but idk if anyone makes an IWB holster for it. I have carried it IWB without a holster on a few occasions before getting the desantis holster. I found that the butt did shift around a lot but it wasnt uncomfortable.

    I think Sideguard makes a OWB, IWB, and a IWB/OWB for the GP 100.
