    If so, what holster do you use? I have been using one for my CCW. I just use a cheap nylon holster right now, because it works, but the gun sits a little lower than I like. I am looking for a good IWB holster that is conceals well and I can use in the summer.
    Thanks for any help.

    I carry a j.
    Check out alabama holsters, the offside. Get a couple beltloop lengths to go with it, so you can use the one you like.

    Just an idea :)

    There is also a brand called Tauga or something that has very similar offerings.

    Wow, while sitting here at this computer, that is what I have IWB. I do rotate, but I like this for normal carry. For this one I like the Uncle Mikes IWB size 0. This SP101 is the 2 3/4" version.

    I carry a J-frame much more often than my SP101. When I do carry it, a Remora is what I use. The same one will work with my J-frames as well as the Ruger. They are very slim and can be adjusted to many ride heights and cant. They are also water/perspiration resistant for hot summers. About $20 direct from the factory.

    I have a Milt Sparks Summer Special for my snub. It is a quality IWB holster. The fit is great. They are pricey, but I got a like new one on eBay.

    I have an OWB by Drew's Dog holsters. Can't see myself carrying it IWB. Check ou D. M. Bullard and Simply Rugged. They make nice holsters for the SP-101.

    Not sure where I read this but for some reason I thought they closed up. It's getting harder to find their products and the prices have climbed a bit. Their products are great though regardless.

    I have a Simply Rugged for a Smith 65 with 3" barrel. Well made, rides high and tight, great price and fast delivery.
