OWB holsters for CC?

Any input and or experience with an OWB that rides high enough for concealment? This is mainly a fall/winter case as I carry IWB when it's t-shirt weather.

Right now I pretty much wear a t-shirt and heavy jacket or sweater and light jacket.

For what gun?

I only use leather OWB holsters. Don't like the kydex holsters....at least ones I have seen.

I also sometimes use a shoulder rig for colder weather. Depends on where I am going and what I intend to wear.

I have a rather cheap shoulder rig at the moment but intend in investing in a Galco Miami Classic soon.

My primary is a G19 but every once in a while I carry a SW-M&P40C.

Galco's "Fletch" High-Ride has worked well for me as a concealed OWB under a coat or Jacket. Mine's for a S&W Model 19 with a 4" barrel but I'm sure it'd work as well or better with a Semi-auto.

I can refer you to several good makers of leather holsters.

Cant help you with kydex.

Thanks, I love the Galco summer comfort for IWB.

I have the Milt Sparks and a Krammer for IWB. Like both.

I have had decent results with leather belt slide-bikini holsters with a thumb break for a Glock and for a USP.

My advice would be to do it right the first time and spend the money for a quality holster. But more importantly, if you haven't done so yet, buy a quality, decicated Gunbelt first and order your holster with the correct size belt slots to match your belts width.

Doing so will help save you a ton of money in the long run by not ending up with a draw full of lesser quality holsters that you are not happy with, as many of us have done.

There are lots of good quality OWB on the market that will serve you well. One of my favorites is this Carry Issues

Kirkpatrick Compact Undercover (about $65-$85) that I'm currently using for a Kimber Compact CDP II. It keeps the gun High and tight to the body. This gun is just a little larger than a G19 but BBL is still 4" and the bottom of the holster only rides about 1-1/2" below the bottom of my belt. Easily concealed even when I wear a fairly short waisted Hoodie.

Hope this of some help.

YB

UPDATE: Sorry Vince, guess you already know the deal about quality holsters as you already own A Milt Sparks and Krammer (didn't see that initially). I like your IWB choices, I have a M.S. as well (VM - II) for IWB and wouldn't trade it for nuttin"!

I've seen guys with the Bianchi CarryLok that I couldn't tell they were carrying in just a T-shirt when I knew it was there. If I were to go OWB for CC that would be the holster I would buy.

if you go kydex, look at pitbull tactical's bloodline. I use one for a 27 and it rides nice & tight. I'll be ordering another for 30sf in near future. good company and timely responses if you email them with questions.

I don't carry OWB, but when I do is in a Kramer.

If you want something in Kydex, I can recommend a zero-cant, short-shield Raven Phantom with the OWB pancake wings.

If you want custom horsehide, I suggest you look at Rusty Sherrick's line.

I have a few Werkz holsters and a few of their mag pouches. Great guys to work with. Never been disappointed.

For IWB while carrying my Shield I use DC Holsters.

With a proper holster and gunbelt, OWB is easy to conceal, in with no more than shorts and a t-shirt. Lots of holsters work well OWB. The glock soort is a great place to start.

I've had a Don Hume OWB for a long time for outside CC. I think it's their 721 model for my G19. Don't recall for sure. Anyway, I like it. Quite comfortable. I certainly would not suggest it for OC but for CC, it works well.

As has been posted, get a quality gun belt and holster and that will save you money in the long run. I swear by High Noon Holsters. Tale a serious look at their Slide Guard Model. It has the high ride feature you want along with extreme comfort and stays close to the body. Bill
