    Anyone carry their J-Frame in an IWB holster? I'm thinking of picking up a Kramer, Fist, or Galco. Recommendations & experiences appreciated.

    I carry a 642 in a Wraith IWB holster by Seth's Gun Leather. Mine was customized with a lower ride height. I've been using it regularly for nearly a year now. Very good balance of concealability, comfort, security, and speed.

    Carry a SW 360 in a Galco Kingtuk-love the comfort and weight. It does seem to take a little effort to draw, but this could just be due to the tightness I wear my belt. Just love the total package.

    I've got an old Galco Scout clip on. It has the full-sized clip that clips over the belt. It has a reinforced mouth, it's made of cowhide with the rough side out, and has a tension adjustment screw. Now they come with the J-clip and no tension adjustment screw.

    The one thing I like about it is it's easy-on, easy-off when you have to remove both the holster and the pistol; no undressing or wiggling around to put it on. It does stay put when it's in my waistband, too.

    I've been looking at that Wraith from Seth's, too. I like the VM-II design if I don't have to take it off and put it on during the day.

    This is good to hear.... I was concerned I'd get responses saying 'way to bulky to carry IWB, etc.'. Now it's a matter of holster choice, and doggone, the Wraith is looking like a front runner. I like the design & the price is better than the Kramer. Thanks all!!

    I have a Taurus 605SS2 (2" snubbie in SS) 5 shot .357 that I carry in a Remora at 3:30 - 4:00.I can easily remove the whole thing for whatever reason and even stick it between the driver seat and console for a "car gun" with no problem.

    I have a "SmartCarry" that I use with the revolver as a BUG or just by itself at 12:00 - 1:00.

    Yes a good clip on IWB for a J works real well, especially in the appendix position.

    Notice mine. I've had it in use since CHL first started here in Texas and I still use it!

    I have a Galco Stow n Go that works well. Has the full size plastic clip that attaches under and around the belt, stays put, priced well.

    I just posted two IWB's for sale in the classified section. I like them both and would recommend them just trying to 'reduce' the size of my holster drawer ;)

    J frame snubbies without a holster just naturally fit and pretty much stay under the belt at about 1 o'clock. I carry my 642 using a DeSantis Clip Grip and I started wrapping the gun in an UM's pocket holster to keep it off my belly.
